Runners & Riders - Place Your Bets!

How was your 2022? Unpredictable? Stretching? Impactful? We’d say a 'hell yes' to all of the above. It’s certainly been our most successful year in terms of number of workshops run and delegates trained, but it did sometimes feel a bit like a horse race. There have been a lot of different development themes jockeying for position and it would be a challenge to name our hardest working one.

Straight out of the gates in 2022

Not surprisingly at the beginning of the year most of our conversations were about how we could support our clients with their new ways of working. Making Hybrid Work dominated the first 3 months of 2022.

A lot of people were also looking for ways to kickstart their year. The Momentum Mindset helped them to do just that. Getting their teams focused on what their priorities and potential blockers were.

Coming up on the inside

A surprising late runner has been Assertiveness with over 25% of our new client briefs including this core competency

Making a late dash for line

It’s clear people are thinking about the challenging times that lie ahead. Over 18% of our workshops in this final quarter were focused on Negotiation and Difficult Conversations
