Personal Development Skills

Managing Time and Personal Effectiveness

There never seems to be enough time to get things done. List of tasks get longer, interruptions and distractions get more frequent and prioritising just flies out of the window. This course is tailored specifically with these issues in mind and has its foundations in core principles and ‘real life’ habits delivered by a self confessed control freak (!) with the outcome always to be ruthless with time, yet consistently gracious with people.

Project Management Skills

A project is defined “as a mini organisation within a larger organisation made up of skilled individuals performing a function for a finite period of time.” Using the framework of a leading methodology in project management this course takes looks to offer a framework that people can use to help manage a project from start to finish. This intensive course is delivered in a number of formats, either a snapshot/overview one day course or a more intensive two or three day programme.

Stress Management

Stress is a reaction, whether we choose to think of it as good or bad depends on the individual. Some people thrive on stress, others crumble. This course does more than offer advice in healthy eating, getting exercise and an early night (!) Whilst all useful often people need a different approach that will bring that all important element of control back into their working or personal life. That element is Mindfulness, a powerful technique to keep people thinking about the ‘hear and now’ rather than ‘what could have been’ or ‘what could be’. This course can be tailored to individuals wanting help in identifying and preventing negative stress or for themselves and needing support when things get tough.

Communication Skills

Many people want to be better at getting along with others. Sometimes they struggle with the initial stages of building rapport, others in maintaining conversations. For many people, there are issues around getting a point across, or giving bad news or feedback to people in more senior positions. Help is at hand. Using some fundamental skills in rapport building, NLP and body language the course looks build delegates confidence by helping them to understand the signals and use language more effectively.

Advanced Communication Skills - Influence, Power & Dependancy

Some people are very good at communicating but feel they could be better. There are times when there is a need to work with people and influence them in a way that doesn’t come across as bossy or negative but more subtlety. Influencing skills has its roots in power and this course helps delegates understand how power works with influence to create its own specific outcome; dependance.

Assertiveness and Confidence Building

For as long as I have been on this earth, I have yet to meet anyone who does not want to be more confident or be more assertive. Often managers wear a mask that hides their insecurities and self doubt leading to them feeling isolated, and concerned about asking for help. This non judgement course creates a safe and comfortable environment for managers to share their concerns and learn some essential life-skills to build up their confidence to help them deal with situations that otherwise might be difficult for them.

Presenting Magically

This popular course is a real confidence booster and is called Presenting Magically due to the transformation that delegates go through during the day. The course looks to understand the process of presenting and helping people overcoming nerves and worry before, during and after a presentation. Learning the skills of creating a prevention using an easy format, body language skills and communication skills that will leave the competition standing and the presenter basking in the the applause.

Using the focus of a little give & take this course teaches the skills of negotiation helping to create a win win outcome. Applying a straightforward route map this course gives attendees everything they need to negotiate confidently in business or their personal lives.

Making Your C.V. Work Harder

A special service I offer to people who need an effective C.V., yet do not know where to start. This service involves SerialTrainer7 analysing your C.V. and creating a report of key actions, recommendations, specific wording, structure and layout that all need to be included in a C.V. to make it stand out from the competition. Once implemented, the resulting C.V. will really work hard on a candidate’s behalf. The service does not involve SerialTrainer7 creating your C.V. , just the report. This is due to many employers recognising a professionally written C.V. therefore losing the candidates own ‘voice’. Once the C.V. has been rewritten SerialTrainer7 will then carry out a number of checks to ensure the document is effective.

He is the kind of person you miss when he’s not there, and the man you want when the demands of the job seem insurmountable, simply because he can lead a team while making you think you’re doing the leading yourself
