Cyclone and flood recovery support and initiatives

Cyclone Gabrielle continues to impact the Hawke’s Bay and the effects will be long-lasting.

Critical infrastructure repairs are a top priority, but the damage wrought by the cyclone is not just physical – the mental health and wellbeing of business owners, employees and the broader community cannot be understated.

With in-house training, you get solutions that are the perfect fit for you and your organisation.

Our purpose is to provide you with learning and development that is designed uniquely for you. Need a bit of everything? Or maybe half and half? We can blend, tailor or mix and match courses to suit you. Our team will sit down with you to create a custom course designed around your needs and goals.

A custom course process:

We Listen
The initial phase is listening and learning all about your business, team and unique needs. We discover what you need most from the course and take note of the company structure, culture and industry.

We Develop
After learning all about you, we begin 
to draft your material, and develop it with your feedback to ensure your voice is clear and your employees are getting the best fit.

We Deliver
Once the material has been reviewed and signed off, it’s time to deliver the course to your employees. Courses are led by a facilitator chosen for their expertise and fit, with full sign-off from you.

We Follow up
After the course, we provide a report of attendee feedback and follow up after six weeks to see how the course outcomes are working within your workplace.

When is an in-house course right for you?

You are interested in a public course and have more than 5 team members you’d like to send.

If you have 5 or more team members you’d like to send on a course, changing it to an in-house could save you money. Additionally, once you’ve moved to an in-house format, we can update the content with specific examples and tailor it to suit your organisation.

Example
Resene wanted to send 6 team members to our Aspiring to Lead course. By changing to an in-house format, they were able to get the course for the same price, with 4 additional team members for a total of 10 participants. And we ensured the content fit the specific needs of Resene.

 

You like the look of one of our courses but want it tailored more to your organisation or sector.

We can curate the content so it is a perfect fit for your organisation and team. We will co-design the content with you to ensure all components are covered, and that your participants are getting the precise information that they need to make your organisation thrive.

Example 1
Taituarā (Local Government Professionals Aotearoa) partnered with us to deliver our Aspiring to Lead course to 60 of their local government members. These participants were spread between 3 different cohorts, and had content specifically designed to meet the demands of being a Local Government Professional. This project contained a series of in-person and virtual sessions that took place over 2 months to allow for maximum flexibility.

Example 2
Multiple organisations want to upskill their leadership team but are unsure where to start as their team members have different leadership skillsets and experiences. We work with your organisation to identify needs and obstacles that are present and will curate content that will help to support and enhance your teams performance for future development. We also do a 6 week follow up that will assess how well your team implemented the content.
 

You have a very specific industry, team or sector need and want a bespoke solution.

We can create personalised content to tackle needs unique to your organisation.

Example 1
You have a group of team members that require specific, and precise development over multiple subjects. We partnered with New Zealand Tube Mills to offer their team of future leaders an intensely personalised training course that was tailored towards the manufacturing industry. We worked with multiple industry experts as they designed and delivered the tailored material to a set cohort of learners from NZ Tube Mills, and other members of manufacturing organisations.

The below topics were delivered over 10 half-day sessions that took place periodically over 18 months.

  • Self-Evaluation and Analysis
  • Team Leader and 
  • Management Theory
  • Business Finance for 
  • Non-Financial Managers
  • Contracts and Negotiations
  • Project Management for 
  • Non-Project Managers
  • Report Writing 
  • Advanced Business Strategy
  • 2x Bespoke Sessions

Example 2
There is a confidential issue or obstacle that is impeding your organisation’s ability to thrive. Whatever the issue is, we will discretely consult with subject specific facilitators to create a bespoke session of content for your team. This content will be pre-approved by you, and we will delicately deliver this with the required level of discretion.

I just wanted to let you know, the insights and tools you gave us were invaluable.
