In Conversation With … shining the spotlight on leading entrepreneurs

This is the launch of our new ‘In Conversation With’ series where we shine the spotlight on leading entrepreneurs and RHC Members.

We learn what inspired them to start their business, what drives them, what makes them tick and hear about what they’ve learnt along the way,

We hear about the big wins, the tough times and they share with us some of their best advice.

We never stop learning and it’s so useful to be able to learn from others.

    Here are a few of the courses we can provide but if you would like to request more information or dates of courses, please email me directly or call me on xxxxxxx
    Managing Performance
    Would you like to manage the performance of your employees more proactively? Do you know how to stretch a good performer or recognise and deal with a poor one? This workshop will give you practical tips and actions that you can put into practice in the workplace.
    Managing Conflict
    None of us like to admit there are simmerings of conflict where we work, but at some point, if we haven’t already, we will all be faced with a conflict situation. Knowing what it is and how to deal with it is key to ensuring it doesn’t escalate. This workshop will help you to deal with those difficult situations and give you insight into the role of mediation.
    Managing Absence
    Ever wondered how much absence is costing your business each year? Have you struggled to manage an absent employee, whether long or short term? In this session I will cover both short and long term absence and you will leave with practical tips and actions to put into place.
    Effective Team Leadership
    Your people are your biggest assets, and by far your biggest investment. So how can you ensure you motivate, inspire and lead your team successfully to achieve their goals on a daily basis. This session will explore management and leader-skills skills to lead your team to a higher performance.
    Discipline and Grievance
    Handling discipline and grievance issues can be costly and time consuming. With consequences both financially and in terms of your reputation, it id imperative that you follow a timely, fair and legal process. Knowing the steps to achieve this is key to minimising risk. The workshop will take you through the disciplinary process to here you are taking the right steps.
    Recruiting Staff
    Would you like to attract the best talent in the market? Are you looking to reduce the new hire mistakes that are often and easily made? How do you know you’ve hired the “right” one? In this up to date and engaging workshop, we will look at the tools we have available for the recruiting staff, including evaluation of your vacancy, methods of recruitment, interview techniques, making the offer and onboarding.
    Diversity and Inclusion
    What is your understanding of diversity? Research suggests that different generations have varying interpretations. Although hugely important, neither diversity nor inclusion always make the priority list for busy SMEs. The danger of this can result in negative workplace well-being or even a costly tribunal claim for failing to comply with the Equality Act.
    Communicating with Confidence
    Does the mere thought of standing in front of others to speak make your heart sink? Do you know the impact your body language has when you engage in conversation?
    In this very popular workshop, we will consider a series of techniques. They will assist you in using your body language effectively, communicating assertively, and displaying confidence in conversations, team meetings and presentations.
    HR Admin
    Handling HR administration can be costly and time consuming if done wrong. This workshop is essential learning, where we will look at the employee life cycle and the processes involved that will drive consistency across the business, taking account of the relevant employment law.
