Who is in your subgroup?

What have you been working on?

Imposter Syndrome Workshops

‘Imposter Syndrome’ is the persistent inability to believe that one’s success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of one’s own efforts or skills. The webinar equips participants with the best evidence-based knowledge currently available about imposter syndrome and train you in a range of proven techniques that you can apply to overcome it.

Career Coaching

Career coaching can empower professionals by helping them make informed decisions about their trajectory. It’s a solution-based approach to career decisions.

Development Diagnostics

Tools to help participants develop an understanding of their own leadership styles, strengths and development areas.

Unconscious Bias Training in Recruitment

Unconscious biases are learned stereotypes that are automatic, unintentional, deeply ingrained, universal, and able to influence behavior. The more we all learn and understand our unconscious bias, the more we can become aware of how this affects our decision making. This has positive outcomes in lots areas of the organisation and we have carried out a lot of unconscious training and coaching in this area.

What do we need help on?
