Living Your Brand


Living Your Brand

Every organisation creates its own brand identity and a community to represent that brand.  We do this by bringing together a group of skilled people who we hope will buy into our ideals and values.  We adorn our walls with well-crafted mission statements, we create a list of inspiring values, and we try our best, through team building, to ensure everyone delivers on our “promise”.

Yet often organisations are perplexed by the diverse outcomes of these endeavours and the vastly different approaches that staff adopt in attending to both organisational goals and client expectations. 

We could create a list of appropriate behaviours for all staff members and hope they stick, but that’s been done before by most organisations with limited success. We thought it better to ‘go deeper’. To this end, we’ve created a highly interactive 2-day course that doesn’t just give the ‘what to do and the “why” but rather embeds the “how to do”.

This course compels participants to be fully immersed in the programme and to generate their own “ideas” and “aha” moments that will not only create a culture of collaboration, but also embed a customer-centric mindset and the kind of professional behaviours that any organisation would be proud of. 

Living Your Brand is about aligning the standards of etiquette, ethics and integrity demonstrated by staff to organisational values and aspirations.
