Managing people has got to be up there as one of the hardest parts of any job; equally, it has the potential to be the most rewarding too.
Everyone is different; as a leader, you need to tap into each person, work out what drives them and how they can be an asset to your team.
Sometimes people will drive you crazy – that is natural and sadly, unavoidable! However, most can be developed into the person you need them to be.
I had my first experience managing a team when I was 18; it was not easy! I’m not afraid to admit that I used to cry on the whole walk in and the way home!
10+ years later, and I am still learning! But I am crying A LOT less! ;)
People management will always present challenges, I at least now have confidence in my approach, methods and style to be able to effectively deal with them, and I want to help you to achieve this too.
Whether you're a new manager looking to progress; a senior manager in a large corporate or an owner of a business looking to develop their first team, I've got a solution to help.

The Programmes I provide
I want to help people who are not sure where to turn – they are struggling to manage someone and are not getting anywhere.
They are not sure how to tackle the difficult person and feel defeated. They have no confidence and are in danger of burning out.
