The demands placed upon employees and managers can often cause hidden, then visible, symptoms of stress. Understanding the root causes and being able to manage stress effectively is of paramount importance in maintaining a productive and energised workplace. Beyond that, developing personal performance and a positive mental attitude is imperative in getting the very best from both individuals and teams. At a higher level, our management training teaches the specific skills and behaviours needed to manage and inspire others.
Our flagship course, ‘The Circus of Life’, has introduced thousands of managers and employees to a whole new way of thinking about mental health, personal wellbeing and self development. Based on the skills a circus performer would learn including juggling, balance and taking risks, The Circhus of Life is a success story that has changed lives and dramatically increased performance.
This course teaches the science of stress and mental health issues, it also teaches the strategies and techniques that enable delegates to both recognise and combat their primary cause. The course is available in a number of different versions and durations, to suit your employees, managers or both. There is also the option to train the trainer. Download the factsheet below or contact us for more detailed information.
Our Stage 2 course ‘Brilliant Me’ embraces all the benefits achieved through 'The Circus of Life' and takes them to the next level. Delegates learn a multitude of personal improvement techniques including how to recognise their own strengths, change any limiting habitual thought patterns, and recognising how their own behaviours impact on others.
This leads on to understanding how to take greater personal responsibility, acquire robust leadership skills and how to use positive communication methods to influence those around them. Brilliant Me normally lasts one day - please contact us or download our factsheet for more information.
Managing effectively and fairly comes from a combination of self-awareness, emotional intelligence and being adaptable. Understanding both their own values, and those of the organisation they work for, helps to align any manager successfully to their role and to the expectations of a Line Manager. Brilliant and Resilient Managers has been delivered to companies large and small, and the feedback has been exceptional. This is not a course that simply scratches the surface, but more an in-depth learning experience that yields excellent and measurable results.
The course is 4 days in duration, and represents a superb investment into the best talent within an organisation. Previous clients have split this course over a number of weeks, in smaller, more manageable groups that have worked well together and gone on to become fully equipped to lead and inspire others. Through feedback and reflection they have also been able to perform better within the organisation, to deal with change, and to cope better with challenging situations.

Resilience is increasingly recognised as a fundamental factor in organisational success, with businesses that invest in resilience programmes reporting benefits such as reduced stress, improved work satisfaction and increased productivity. Professor Ivan Roberts and Professor Sir Cary Cooper reviewed every published study on resilience and concluded that resilience training had quantifiable improvements for business regardless of whether the training was half a day or 20 weeks.

3. receives EXCELLENT feedback
Not all companies can accommodate the full day Circus of Life workshop but understanding, even at a basic level, about mental heath and wellbeing in the workplace is essential. For this reason we have developed a 3-hour workshop that will enable attendees to understand what stress is (medically) and how it can ultimately lead to physical or mental health issues. Plus they will learn what the six different mental health categories are (at a basic level) and how to identify them, understand how to provide initial support for individuals’ mental health issues in the workplace and finally to understand the key strategies that are required to maintain positive mental wellbeing.
For any business that has not yet conducted any MHA or wellbeing training for their staff, this course represents the perfect introduction and will reap many benefits in reduced absenteeism and a more positive culture.
