Knowing Me … Knowing You
an introduction to effective communication within teams
New Date to be announced shortly

Do you work as part of a team? Do you work with volunteers? Do you need to better communicate with colleagues, managers and volunteers?
Would you like to understand & develop your own style?
Do you need to understand the styles of other team members?
It doesn’t matter who you are communicating with – what level they work at or you are working at – we all need to understand different styles of
communication and working practices.
As one previous participant said: “If only I’d known all this years ago…!

Any questions?

What is the Jigsaw Discovery Tool?

Increase personal effectiveness and transform business performance
using neuroscience. The Jigsaw Discovery Tool is a unique behavioural
profile tool which uses brain science to enhance personal effectiveness
and increase the performance of the organisation.

Unlike traditional profiling tools, there are no questionnaires forcing
people into either/or choices. The Jigsaw Discovery Tool recognises that
people can and do exhibit opposite behaviours, for example the way in
which people behave at home is often very different from the way they behave at work.

The Jigsaw Discovery Tool takes the learning beyond the point where
many traditional tools stop. It answers the “so what”. People are not leftwondering how the learning can be used and because the Jigsaw
Discovery Tool uses some of the latest evidence in brain science – the
learning actually sticks.
 
How will this help team work?

Using the tool we will look at our own individual preferences and
behaviours and then we will look carefully at what you know about your
team members and what strengths and weaknesses need developing andwhat tools we need to do that.  Often the only issue in teams is a lack of
understanding of how we work within our different individual strengths.  Using the tool we learn how to identify what is really causing problems in a relationship and how we can make strong connections by tailoring our
actions and words to accommodate the personality styles of others.  In
the words of one previous participant: 
‘I just wish I’d known all this year’s ago!’

The Jigsaw Discovery Tool encourages us to think clearly about what we
do and say and learn more about how our brain impacts all our learning
and our behaviour  – so come along and find out more about making our working lives more effective.
 

 

Developing Exciting and Memorable Training

Do you fear how little your learners actually remember?

Do you want to pass on information and knowledge effectively?

Do you know how to gauge the learning style of each of your learners?

If so this workshop is for you.

This is a one day workshop to help people identify what makes training enjoyable, memorable and something that people can take back into their workplaces and use with confidence.

Every individual learns differently but if we’re going to have them all in one room on training courses we need to understand them and be skilled in finding innovative and varied ways to deliver training and engage people in learning.

The workshop will cover:

  • Using presentation tools effectively – no more death by PowerPoint!
  • Understanding how people learn
  • Developing ‘brain friendly’ exercises that help people learn and retain learning most   effectively
  • Managing challenging learners

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Understand how different people learn
  • Have some clarity about how best to use PowerPoint
  • Have developed techniques for identifying engaging exercises and activities
  • Have investigated techniques to manage changing agendas and challenging participants

The workshop includes a pre-work questionnaire on Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences and a commitment to review the learning and how it can be implemented for six months following the event.

Feedback from January 2018

“Thank you for organising such a pleasant and informative day. It was very nice to have a chance to share ideas and experiences with a very pleasant bunch of colleagues working in similar fields, to and to learn a lot of new information that is not only interesting theoretically but also of immediate practical application.”

“A really fun, interesting day which I enjoyed very much, both for its content which was thought provoking and gave me some excellent ideas to take away and try with my students, but also in terms of the networking and chance to share ideas with colleagues working in related areas to my own. The trainer was very engaging and warm. A very worthwhile experience.”

“I found the session was very useful and different than any other training I’ve had. I took with me lots of ideas to be implemented in my sessions and some are quite easy to implement.”

“I’ve just finished a week block of teaching using the new skills you taught me, and the results were outstanding.

I tried as hard as I could – with the time available – to appeal to as many styles as possible.

And here is the amazing thing: when I’ve taught block before [5 consecutive days] although they enjoy day 1 – it is tiring and by the end of day 2 they want to kill you and it gets progressively worse as the week progresses.

BUT last week, having enjoyed day 1 – Monday they came back on Tuesday full of beans and were still buzzing on Wednesday afternoon.

I’ve never had an experience like it in the 10 years I’ve been teaching.

I can’t thank you enough, not just for me, but for helping my students get more out of their studies.”
