Training

Sophie, and her associate team, provide a wide range of Modular Training Programmes, Leadership Masterclasses and Team Workshops. Our training focusses on behavioural change and skill development in the workplace.

All our training programmes are highly interactive and are tailored to the needs of individual teams / organisations. If you are looking for didactic training with numerous dreary PowerPoint slides, then our training is not for you!

Our training is delivered on-line and/or face-to-face, usually with groups of 10 to 15 people.

 

We are currently providing on-line experiential workshops in the following areas:

  • Building Cohesive and Highly Effective Teams
  • Leading through Coaching
  • Powerful Presentations and Public Speaking
  • Making Meetings Matter
  • Courageous Conversations and Mastering Conflict
  • Unconscious Bias
  • Building a Compassionate and Inclusive Culture

All these workshops can be adapted for delivery face-to-face.

We also design and deliver bespoke workshops, masterclasses and modular training programmes for individual organisations. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

  • Leadership Developing Programme (2023-2024) for Developing Health and Independence (DHI). DiSC Work of Leaders Psychometric, regular 1:1 leadership coaching for delegates and 6 highly interactive online modules: 1. Understanding leadership, 2. Inclusive leadership, 3. Building cohesive and effective teams, 4. Recruiting and retaining the best, 5. Courageous Conversations (with actors), 6. Showcasing and sharing the leadership learning.

All these programmes have been bespoke – designed and delivered according to the needs and aspirations of the client. Here is a testimonial from the CEO of DHI:

“DHI has chosen to employ Sophie Norton, both as a coach and a trainer, at an Executive and senior manager level on a number of occasions.  She is highly skilled and professional; always taking the time to really listen and ensure the organisation gets maximum benefit from any commissioned brief.

Most recently we employed Sophie to deliver a bespoke Leadership Development Programme for our managers.  This has had a visible impact on participants in their interactions with staff, as well as their style and confidence as leaders.

Right from the very start, Sophie took the time to really understand what mattered most to DHI.  She helped us to clarify what it was we wanted and then took account of the context, culture and challenges faced by the organisation.  The programme was also designed to reflect our values, how we do things, and build this into the Leadership Development of our senior staff. 

On-going participation in reviewing the course and participants over time also helped us to ensure that the learning could be embedded in organisational practices, and the Leadership Development Programme was much more than just a course to attend.  It has influenced Exec members in how they interact with managers, and of course, how managers lead their teams.

Toward the end of the course, participants were involved in lively presentation to a wider group of the organisation’s stakeholders at all levels – this was a really insightful and fun way to bring the learning to life and make it memorable.”
