What we do

We are passionate about all things to do with managing people. Without people, there is no business and growing and investing in your staff helps your business grow too. We teach hard and soft HR skills, we offer employment law seminars and help you navigate the health and wellbeing landscape.

Ultimately, getting better at managing others starts with becoming more self aware - therefore everything we do is peppered with stories and anecdotes to aid your own development and increase personal resilience.

HR Skills

Inject advanced communication skills and language into your every day HR work practices. You'll notice positive changes in relationships, your impact on others, your responses to difficult people and situations, stress levels  and how you influence others

Find out how we can skill you up with tools and techniques

Employment Law

People managers are not expected to be experts but it does help to understand the basics and a bit more.  We help you get to grips with the legal and technical aspects whilst guiding you on the HR implications for your business.

"Debbie is a great coach and it was a very enjoyable experience working with her. Our coaching time felt safe, fun and playful and we were able to explore new possibilities in a deep way that surprised me but also allowed me to set a new creative direction. I still use the skills that came into play during our coaching. Highly recommended! "

"The process and technique that Debbie shared with me was first class - a combination of thoughtful mindfulness and a physical and mental challenge to my limiting beliefs and assumptions. Debbie is thoughtful, empathic, professional and helps her clients achieve amazing results. She is top class and I would recommend anyone whom desires to challenge themselves to achieve the goals they want. See Debbie and achieve the future you want for yourself."
