I completed a feedback form but would just like to reiterate how much I appreciated the day.
Dr Margaret Collins was extremely motivating and ran a very enjoyable and informative session. I can truthfully say that I have never attended a better course, either here or in the many years I have worked in the commercial sector. I hope that she will be able to run many further sessions for us in the future.

Performance Coaching

Your key staff sometimes need to adapt quickly, to stretch, to master new skills.
Maybe they are new to staff managment, to networking or influencing others.
Perhaps they have a new role that their research career to date hasn’t developed.
Professional Coaching is one process that can give them the edge, to develop new skills, expand their comfort zone.

Through coaching, master communication skills, influencing and motivation.

Use behavioural styles analysis to understand effective team building, deliver feedback and achieve goals.

I work 1 to 1 to bring out the best in your most promising staff.
