We can assist you in the design and delivery of various development programmes. Here's what Ican do for you!
From Team Leadership courses... right up to Level 7 Strategic Leadership Programmes. This is our forte. We can design and deliver to suit the current and future competency needs of your business. Our programmes travel well and we are always keen to develop key leaders in the UK, Asia and Middle East.
Case Study: Ican are delivering a Level 7 Strategic Leadership Programme for a large Private Sector Company. Talented leaders identified as paramount to the future success of the business have been selected and are participating in a demanding programme where they are developing a new leadership competency framework for 2015 and also leading changes in the organisation that will impact on the bottom line... and pay for their programme many times over!
We can deliver a full portfolio of Management Development workshops, courses and programmes. If you would like to try something unique and fresh then why not talk to us about "Ican Grow People".
A comprehensive Management Development programme built around a metaphor that puts your managers into a third person perspective and allows them to develop the key skills of management in a creative way. Winner of the 2010 Training Journal Peer Award for Innovation. This programme is our "Prize Bloom" in the People Development (flower) bed.
Case Study: We are currently delivering I Can Grow People to a large Public Sector client. First line managers are completing a Level 3 Certificate in Management Qualification recognised by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). We are now developing our 6th cohort and we have seen these managers transform their management capability in order to meet the challenging needs in the public sector over the next few months (and probably years!).

We are very proud of our Coaching Skills Courses. We call them "Manager as Coach" and we think it really delivers something other coaching programmes can't. We have perfected a 1 Day Introduction to Coaching, a 2 day intensive and very practical Coaching Workshop and also can offer a qualification approach through the ILM. Based on a highly experiential approach that challenges delegates to practice coaching on real-life challenges, issues and goals we see amazing shifts in the skills and knowledge of all participants in a very short space of time.
Case Study: We have now developed over 800 coaches from all sectors and our 2 Day "Manager as Coach" programme has the option of an ILM Development Award attached and is personally endorsed by the ILM National Manager for Wales.
We offer a comprehensive suite of 360 diagnostics including the full range of instruments from www.humansynergistics.com . We are fully licensed and qualified to order, administer, facilitate, consult and coach on Lifestyles 1&2 (LSI 360), Leadership Impact (LI 360) and Group Styles inventory (GSI 360).
We can also complete organisational diagnostics allowing businesses to measure and describe their current culture and compare with their described "Ideal" culture... the culture that will bring success...and results! These tools (OEI and OCI) are very revealing and therefore powerful in challenging the status quo.
Once we identify the gaps we can begin to close them by using the Management and Leadership 360's (behavioural) along with Organisational Effectiveness Diagnostics (working practices) to help shift culture in the right direction.
Case Study: We have helped two boards critically analyse their business culture and leadership and supported them in moving forward. Same diagnostics but one business had over 18,000 employees and the other less than 100 showing how flexible the tools and Ican can be!
We take quite a pragmatic approach to developing teams. We don;t believe that teambuilds and away days always tackle the real issues and needs and can often make the situation worse. We like to meet your teams' needs specifically and sometimes it starts with some core essentials... are you trying to?
Build a team from scratch? - That's a "team build"
Help people understand each other? - That's a "team bond"
Check team effectiveness? - That's a "team MOT"
Deal with conflict? - That's a "team repair"
Improve skills and knowledge? - That's "team development"
Move people around? - That's a "team transition"
Whatever the problem or challenge we can get your team performing.
We understand the challenges facing businesses in the current climate.
Money is tight and time spent "at the desk" is a premium. The thought of "losing people" for a whole day is scary when there's so much to do.
This is where "On The Hour" comes in. We have taken the essential ingredients of the most common training topics and crammed as much information, stimulating and thought provoking learning that we can into 60 minutes!
That way your staff and managers get a burst of training with the least amount of time away from the day job.
Case Study: A large retailer needed to tackle the immediate training needs of 500+ staff at their Head Office. We designed a compendium of training sessions from their Training Needs information. We set up a "Training Zone" in their Head Office (a sort of funky training room) and delivered 5 On The Hour sessions each day for 5 Days. At the end of the week we had covered 16 development topics and trained over 500 staff. There was a real buzz about the place and a sense that Learning & Development was integral to the business. The HR team also had some great looking reports to take to senior management.
Managing Personality and Generation Gaps
Ican Flex is an innovative approach to the modern world of working and underpins all of the other work we do. That's why it's at the bottom here.
Flex is about managing and working with different personalities, cultures and generations.
What makes us successful and effective can often be put down to how we interact and build rapport with others. We can't change other people, we often can't change the situation but we can always change our approach.
Ican flex uses personality questionnaires and insights into generation differences and attitudes in a constantly ageing workforce where we will soon see 4 generations between senior managers and new starters! Each with a very different view of the world and the world of work.
Add this to a world that has less boundaries... where cultures mix... and we have a real recipe for developing people. Practical development so your people can Flex their style and approach to get the best out of others.
Bring something new, relevant and memorable to your next Business Seminar, Conference or Team Away Day.
