What initially started as a counselling service over 50 years ago expanded to community work in many areas and one of our sustainability arms was our Corporate Division which actually created out of the demand from people who had attended our community training to share these vital skills in the workplace.

How people are managed in a business is critical to its success. If managers are not performing well how can the rest of the team and therefore the company?

It has become increasingly apparent that people with high levels of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) are more successful in business and in their professional lives than those who just have high levels of "traditional intelligence".
EQ explains why some people excel while others who appear to be of a similar calibre lag behind. EQ helps us to manage our lives and our interactions with others thereby contributing to both personal excellence and greater leadership capabilities.
Good leadership ability coupled with solid management skills can have a significant impact on your workplace effectiveness and consequent career progression.
Without these core competencies under control, the workplace can be an extremely harsh environment.

Most projects and business performed by companies involve the use of contracts. In many cases the people tasked with ensuring delivery on those contracts are not always those involved in setting up the contract or, if they are, they are not always informed of the implications of some of the terms of the contract until it is too late. The terms & conditions of a contract can have enormous implications in terms of the likelihood of satisfying the expectations of delivery.
