A good story is all in the telling
People love telling stories. It’s part of our DNA. From simple anecdotes to elaborate urban myths. For centuries storytelling has helped leaders communicate ideas, influence behaviours and inspire those around them.
Leading leadership development
Every H&H’er involved in developing, devising and delivering our leadership programmes have walked in the shoes. They’ve been leaders themselves. They’re au fait with the very real challenges of leading in a complex and ever changing environment.
Our programmes are authentic and relevant. They change perspectives and transform the way that leaders communicate, interact and engage with their people. Here’s just a few ways we can develop the leaders in your organisation.
Communication impact workshops
Does what it says on the tin. Using an assortment of clever and practical tools, we reveal the communicator within – building confidence, belief and desire to unleash the power to influence, communicate and connect more deeply with others.
Having a compelling organisational narrative is one of the cornerstones of successful employee engagement. Using a blended approach we support leaders to experientially learn how to tell a great story and deliver it authentically and memorably. Ensuring that they always capture imaginations, paint well-defined pictures and get people excited to be part of the story.
Executive and leadership coaching
Sometimes working one-on-one is the ticket for enduring and lasting breakthroughs. Either as stand-alone interventions or as part of a programme, our approach to leadership coaching is grounded in pragmatism, supporting leaders to new and deeper levels of self-awareness and communication know-how.
NLP for leaders
Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques can radically improve a leaders ability to communicate effectively, build and maintain rapport and positively influence those around them. Our in-house NLP Master practioners have designed a range of courses that specifically focus on leadership communication, arming leaders with a practical toolkit of methods and techniques that will significantly improve their communication impact.
Got a new strategy to work through? Or a big change on the horizon that needs everyone fully behind it? Or perhaps a new team has been formed?
Using an exceptionally insightful tool (PRINT®) that uncovers individual motivations, our workshops bring teams together behind common goals and get them working smarter and more efficiently super quick.
The PRINT Survey expands self-awareness and encourages all individuals and teams to choose best self-behaviors. By furnishing the ‘why,’ they are able to shift more readily in their communication and teamwork styles.
The leadership conference
A staple in every internal communicators calendar. But sadly, much of the time (and cost) is often fruitless. Because typically conferences involve a lot of ‘what will we tell them’ thinking and most of the time it’ll be crammed with far too much info.
Podium talks, an enduring favourite, are not memorable. About 97% of what is said will be forgotten within 7 days. The only way to get impact and influence behaviour is to get people active, involved and practicing new skills.
With teams of L&D specialists, facilitators, IC experts and behavioural psychologists we create conferences that inspire action. From strategic planning, to coaching the speakers or developing interactive game-based learning activities – we invent events that truly inspire, engage and connect leaders. And keep them inspired way beyond the day itself.
