20-80 Online Training

Helping individuals, managers and organisations solve common workplace people issues and optimise personal performance.

Why focus on people issues?

How many of the problems that individuals, managers and organisations experience at work are a result of people issues?

What are the consequences personally when we feel anxious and demotivated?

To what extent do difficult relationships problems at work impact on performance and consume organisational effort and resources?

The Organisational Iceberg Model suggests that the human process at work contributes significantly to the way the job gets done.  Confident,  resilient staff who get on well together to do a job they are clear about and motivated by will approach work differently than people who feel overwhelmed and anxious, have fractious relationships, and are unclear about their purpose.

What underpins our approach?

Distilling the difference that makes a difference. The 20–80 rule suggests that 20% of our effort generates 80% of benefit. Our programmes contain tried and tested practical techniques as well as useful models from a wide range of topics including psychology, Organisational Analysis, Management & Leadership training, NLP, Learning Theory and more. All help to unlock the 20% that gives the 80%.

Our psychology affects everything we do. But few of us are taught how to understand, and get the most from it. Learning more about ourselves and others as well as strategies for effectiveness, helps us manage ourselves better and enhances the way we behave.

People issues affect the way the job gets done. Individual and organisational performance is about more than just being clear about the task. If people are involved, then the human side of work – perceptions, feelings, morale, and relationships can have a major impact.

Effectiveness, Efficiency, Economy. Programmes contain tried and tested material that makes a real difference. They are delivered in short bite-sized lessons that can be accessed at the users’ convenience. And with single-user prices for lifetime access lower than the average cost of one coaching or counselling session, they offer great value.


What programmes are available?

Introductory Programmes are free to access, offering a sense of the approach, and samples from the courses. We share introductions to useful models, frameworks and techniques, which can help managers and staff start to develop their own ‘inner psychologist’.
Core Programmes establish basic understandings about how we ‘tick’ personally, how we can understand and work with the difference between people and how to approach problems and goals in an effective way. Modelled from an acclaimed live leadership course designed for NHS managers, they include practically useful strategies for managing our emotional state and building confidence, for handling disagreement and improving influence, and for dealing with problems and setting clear ways forward.
Workplace Specific Programmes focus on common workplace issues and include simple models that make sense of people management, as well as powerful strategies to help work through change and accelerate the process of adaptation.
General Interest Programmes are also available covering a wide range of topics and offering fascinating insights into the human psyche. For those interested in deeper exploration of the topics, further sources of information and training are given.
