Our Advanced Level Programme

Over a twelve-week learning journey, managers shift how they think and act during interactions, to support the engagement,  and performance of others. Between live events, managers try out new ideas and principles in their workplace, to steadily build better conversational skill.

As an additional option, we offer three, 1:1 coaching sessions as part of the programme - for costs and acceptance criteria, please get in touch.
