At The Consulting Space we design and implement developmental programs which are engaging, experiential and effective. We partner closely with our clients to ensure our training products are fit for purpose, whether it is a large scale ‘Train the Trainer’ program or a bespoke leadership workshop. Our consultants are also accredited practitioners in leadership coaching and can provide individual or organisational leadership development programs.
Investing in human capital and increasing capability levels is critical in today’s business environment. We work with our clients to define and articulate capability requirements, design learning intervention programs and evaluate capability acquisition and outcomes.
Our model is to partner closely with our clients to understand what they are trying to achieve as an outcome of investing in capability development. From this point we work on engaging closely with subject matter experts within the client’s business to develop an engaging and varied learning experience to meet the needs of the business and to accommodate the individual differences present in adult learning. Outcomes can be met in the classroom, but also through a more holistic L&D plan, including coaching interventions, mentoring and eLearning solutions.
In the leadership development space, our coaches are accredited in the Human Synergistics Life Styles Inventory and associated tools, Hogan and Genos EQ coaching tools, as well as having a wealth of skills and experience in leadership coaching.
At The Consulting Space we partner with our clients to help them understand their capability requirements and construct programs to address any development needs. We deliver a range of services in this area:
We collaborate closely with clients throughout the design and delivery stage of training, often engaging guest speakers and subject matter experts from the business in workshops to provide credibility and clarity to the training process. We also design and run train the trainer programs where there is a requirement to run multiple workshops, optimising the initial outlay for material design and development.
We have experience in designing and delivering projects such as large-scale legislative changes, organisational induction courses and IT systems implementation training. We also design and deliver non-technical training including, dealing with difficult behaviour, managing conflict/workplace stress and leadership skills. We can work with you on a specific training outcome or on a larger scale L&D strategy.
In the organisational development space, we utilise a number of Human Synergistics tools in order to deliver results. The Organisational Culture Inventory (OCI) is a diagnostic tool which provides excellent insight into an organisation’s culture, based on standardised input from employees at all levels. The OCI looks deeper than staff engagement, to understand an organisation’s unwritten rules around ‘how we do things around here’. We provide a comprehensive debrief process to help organisations understand, not only its culture, but also what factors are driving this culture, therefore providing opportunities to implement tailored strategies which enable culture change.
The Consulting Space also utilises the 360-degree feedback tool, the Life Styles Inventory (LSI), which delivers a comprehensive self and others’ assessment of an individual’s style of interacting within their workplace. This assessment provides an excellent grounding for development and growth towards becoming a more effective leader. The LSI tool has an enviable evidence base on which to build its picture of ‘effectiveness’ in leadership and has been utilised by millions of leaders globally. We believe that building an effective coaching relationship, coupled with a strongly evidence-based tool is the key to effecting meaningful change in leadership capability.
