Personal effectiveness

We believe, in today’s world of work, it is critical to be able to perform at your best. We offer a range of options to support individuals, whatever their role, to be the best they can be; whether that’s about their ability to organise and prioritise their work, to operate effectively under pressure, or to communicate and work effectively with others.

We deliver these in a range of formats from whole day workshops to our unique bite-size skill shots. These intense, short burst learning sessions, either face-to-face or virtual, are designed to fit within the busy work schedules of learners today.

Our workshops and programmes cover a wide range of topics, focussing particularly on those areas relevant for the workplace of today and tomorrow, whether it's the need to work effectively in a virtual or global environment, the need to be more agile and responsive, or how to collaborate across and outside the organisation. We have a particular focus on helping develop personal impact and presence, and use our rehearsal facilitators to help people to be their 'best selves', often in the face of challenge and change.

Whatever the topic, we provide a safe place to develop fresh approaches to developing relationships and enhancing personal effectiveness.

"The Art of Work brought a different perspective and level of thinking to the activities they provided and were able to understand the nuances of our organisation and adapt solutions to meet their needs. Their directors and practitioners were all highly valued by me and the business and were of a highly professional standard so I have had no concerns with recommending them to other organisations."
