Coaching and Soft Skills Training for Business is our background. We combine everything we know to create rounded managers and effective leaders.

Our passion is people and we know that most employees leave their managers not organisations. In a highly competitive market, finding ways to retain staff is key. Skilled managers and effective employees who have the opportunity to grow and develop in their roles is essential.

We teach Soft Skills and offer Business Coaching.  

Our collective experience working at senior HR level, combined with coaching and training expertise means we can cover all angles and bring a very holistic approach to what we offer.

We work online and in-house and can attend client sites or a selected venue. We aim to tailor what we do to our client needs and use a results focussed approach.   

Our preference is to develop strong relationships with clients in order to achieve lasting and sustainable outcomes.

Soft Skills for Business (NEW)

We are delighted to be launching a first ever learning portal that teaches soft skills and wellbeing all in one place. This is in response to the challenges faced by employers to provide comprehensive training and wellbeing that offers a foundation in many aspects of self care and personal development.  We focus on the technical and soft skills required to be effective at work and in life as the two are not mutually exclusive.

Online Courses

Our online courses mean that managers can learn at their own pace. It also means they can refer back to what they have learnt at any time. All our courses come with follow up support - we run regular Q&A sessions so that attendees can get further clarification and support after completion of the modules.

Barbara, Director of Operations, London and US

"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! "

Paul, IT Manager, London

"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."
