Workshops and group coaching
Group coaching is a great way to bring together a number of people around a common personal or professional development theme, such as:
> Effective coaching skills in the workplace
> Leading as a first time manager
> Challenging imposter syndrome
> Building confidence at work
> Coaching skills for new managers
> Managing and embracing conflict
> Well-being at work (further details below)
> Embracing your authentic self
There are multiple benefits from group workshops in this way: from peer to peer support and shared learning, improved relationships between colleagues, creating a common language and approach around the set theme to taking the opportunity to practice giving and receiving feedback.
If you have an idea for a workshop that is not noted above, do get in touch to discuss further.
Well @ work
According to the Mental Health Foundation (pre-COVID), work-related stress accounts for an average of 23.9 days of work lost for every person affected. Putting aside the financial cost of stress and poor 'work-health', a compassionate employer genuinely wants to support their people through the good and the bad. With so many demands on people in the workplace, it is important to create a culture where talking about stress, burn-out triggers, resources and coping strategies are welcomed. A responsible employer will ensure open dialogue with its teams at all levels to ensure sustainable performance, enhanced productivity, decreased number of sick days plus awareness of 'presenteeism'.
‘Well@work’ was created for SMEs to offer their employees the opportunity to learn about their relationship to their own well-being, focusing on empowering individuals to take responsibility (and importantly, action) to look after themselves - in and out of work.
W@W is a series of practical and self-reflective well-being workshops which focus on a different theme throughout the year (run monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly). Themes include:
Auditing your well-being
Time to reflect
Overcoming obstacles to well-being
Creative a positive mindset
Developing a work life balance

"As with many business owners I found the lockdown very challenging mentally. Gemma helped me make a little more sense of how I felt and how to navigate out of the challenging times. It was the time I spent talking with Gemma about my journey that gave me the focus to make some fundamental changes, these have been immensely positive and taken us to a higher level of performance. I can’t thank her enough and I’m very proud to say she is now supporting all our managers on their leadership journey."
