Playing Bigger At All Levels
Often what holds back individuals - and therefore teams and organisations as a whole - is self doubt. This invisible but pervasive weakness is a barrier to growth on many fronts. Careful training that focuses on deeper belief systems, internal scripts and schemas and which explores the impact of identity evolutions, strengthens this deficiency. Alice Olins will help you create confident, resilient team members who can take greater risks and exist beyond the comfort zones for greater innovation and self-assurance company-wide - as well as a happier, more able staff.

The Power Of Allyship
A more powerfully inclusive workforce requires those who can and have, to flex and share their privilege. Allyship is a behaviour that can show up in many guises and for many benefits. Becoming an ally requires you to challenge the stereotypes that you hold, recognise and call out unconscious bias, develop empathetic listening skills and be able to catch micro transgressions in real time. Alice Olins will help you build a culture that supports equal career growth to build fairer, more collaborative organisations that do better across every success metric.

Leading With Impact

Workshop outcomes: organisations that boast leaders at all levels, leading to a respectful, adaptable, engaged workforce that feeds good culture, higher retention and profitability.
