Our business and people skills training are an experiential and evidence-based approach for empowering employees and leaders.
Our programmes forge trust and loyalty on teams. They decreases staff turnover and (political) sick leave. We engage individuals, small groups and large groups in immersive and experiential ways of learning.
All training programmes and leadership courses are based on solid and science-based knowledge. With a highly interactive and hands-on approach, the programmes motivate, inspire and empower.

Why do you find yourself completely at ease with one total stranger, while another can make you feel entirely inadequate, or annoyed? What if you could learn to better ‘read’ and understand the intentions and needs of the people you work with? How do you foster trust and loyalty on your team?
In this programme, we help you turn widely researched neuroscience and theory of Emotional Intelligence into effective communication strategies. We explore the ‘nature’ and nurture of human behaviour, the role of culture and understanding facial emotional expressions.
As an advanced DISC accredited provider, we often use this instrument to help reveal unconscious behavioural patterns on individual and team level. Applying these insights and skills will put you in a strong strategic advantage when communicating or dealing with others. Delegates who participated gained value from this programme in sales, negotiation, resolving conflict and in leading teams.
How do you engage members on your team towards a common goal or a challenging strategy, promoting openness and spark interpersonal cohesion? It starts with trust.
When we think of trust, we look at skills and behaviours that reinforces that much wanted trait. Emotion plays a major role in every intellectual process and is a driving force in how peoples’ brains organise themselves. Research shows that people who receive instruction in social and emotional intelligence are more positive, more solution focussed and less anxious than others.
Taking part in this programme makes your teams more inclusive, more resilient and productive as we develop the underlying core skills:
With a thoughtful look at stages of team development, we help you solve team problems before they derail the team’s success. We partner with leaders and teams to identify key issues that compromise trust before they become dysfunctional or even toxic.
Through a mix of individual and group work, we provide insight in motivation, expectations and individual personality differences. This will help you build a team culture that blends performance with care where people feel valued and they belong.
What do you wish for people to associate with you when they think of your name? How do you ‘show’ yourself without the fear of being judged? How do you engage or lead people towards your vision or goal?
This too, starts with trust. In yourself. Over two immersive days, this personalised programme utilises proven branding secrets to supercharge your self-awareness, self-esteem and, as a result, your career or business. In a highly interactive programme, we take a closer look at ourselves ‘from the inside out’. Explore what your inner drives and purpose entail, which beliefs may hold you back to step forward and how to break through such barriers.
Your coach is an experienced public speaker and TEDx host who understands and appreciates the anxieties and fears and how to overcome them. Therefore, in partnership you will discover where you naturally excel and comfortably learn to articulate a gripping story about it.
Trust is probably the most valuable aspect of human relationships. But depending on the situation, we can’t always be sure if we can trust the other person’s narrative or intention. It can then be useful to be able to better ‘read’ the intention and motivation behind someone’s behaviour.
This programme, based on scientifically-backed research, will teach you proven techniques and methodologies on reading people’s authenticity and how to spot deception.
Through experience-based learning, you will analyse the psychological processes that occur when people lie and develop your ability to assess the credibility of others through their verbal and nonverbal behaviours. Being able to detect suppressed emotions on the face, for example, gives you a distinct leadership advantage in negotiations, recruitment, sales, risk & fraud analysis.
Plato once said: “Those who tell the stories, rule society”. Great stories can inspire hope and optimism and so motivate people to join a cause or mission. It is a powerful skill in the practice of leadership.
In our public speaking learning programmes, we help identify what kind of (non-) verbal interaction, wording, or detail is needed to deliver your message successfully. It is designed tailor-made to build on your own authenticity, developing skills and styles that naturally represent your personality. With contributions from TED speakers, you can learn from the best.
Do you find yourself struck by limiting self-beliefs or uncontrollable anxieties? We will help you build that confidence to deliver a gripping story in your own natural way. This highly personalised programme tailored around the art of speech and group interaction will enable developing an engaging and responsive communication style and boost confidence and competence to make a convincing narrative.
Diversity and -more importantly- inclusion, is moving up the boardroom agenda in most modern organisations. It is not just the right thing to do, it is also the smart thing to do. Organisations that have adopted a strategy to promote inclusion say it is helping them to enhance innovation, customer satisfaction and overall performance.
With a ‘brain in mind’ approach, this training programme is designed to help you achieve exactly that. We reveal how promoting diverse viewpoints, attitudes and beliefs, produce more creativity and innovation, but also how our brains get in the way when it comes to inclusion of diversity. Amongst a myriad of topics, you will learn how to identify and mitigate the unconscious biases and dysfunctional team dynamics such as ‘group think’.
By means of creating awareness about diversity issues, discussing inspiring case study exercises and developing insight, we supply you with the tools to promote stronger cohesiveness and inclusion on your teams. Its strategic yet practical approach will help you identify inclusion opportunities and concludes with a tangible action plan towards true employee engagement.
