Team & Individual Productivity and Effectiveness,

Effective Time and Energy Management
Understanding the impact, both good and bad of our personalities on how we manage our ( and other’s ) time and energy
We use a range of psychometrics which are models based on the pioneering personality profiling work of Carl Jung. Using colour as a common language for self-understanding, effective interaction and organisational growth.
These solutions create a common language that allows people throughout the organisation to communicate effectively with colleagues and customers and to recognise and value the diverse and unique contributions that each make, this is manifest through increased productivity, reduced cost and improved customer services.
Dealing with conflict
Recruitment, Career planning, Outplacement, Graduate support
This is a 5 step programme that can be tailored to individual needs:
Complete a personality profile on ideal careers or roles for that individual that aligns with their styles
Create a "brand" CV
Complete a Career Assessment to give specifics on fundamental drivers for career planning
A thorough overall of their LinkedIn is undertaken
Interview skills training is given
In our own work on this subject, spanning 25 years, we have found that most execs, managers and specialists are excellent at what they do. We find that most PAs are excellent at their administrative specialism.
But most execs & PAs never take the time to thoroughly examine how, by working better together; they can free the exec’s time, focus and energy for even better results.
The aims of this programme are twofold:
To give executives more time, focus and choice.
To help administrative assistants create the most effective working partnership to accomplish the point above.
Within the objectives we cover:
Reducing dispersal, enhancing focus
Time and process management
Managing information overload, especially e-mails
Payback from meetings
Application of personal strengths

It also helped in 1:1 development discussions.
The Executive Personal Efficiency Programme (PEP) helped to release time from non-value adding activities and made a dramatic difference to my day.

Just wanted to say ‘thank you’: your session has prompted me to sort out my emails properly and I now have just 64 in my inbox and 33 in my sent items. A big improvement from the 5,000 a week ago (at least 200 of which had never even been read)! I have also set up a ‘to do’ folder and move things which require action straight in there – I then spend an hour reviewing and auctioning those items each day to keep on top of things.
As someone who regularly receives 60+ emails each day, this is really helpful and I need to be disciplined about deleting as I go. Next step is to make better and more efficient use of my calendar…!
- Hatty Hall, (HR Transformation Manager) Southern Water (Mar 2018)

I would just like to thank you for working with me on the Personal Efficiency Programme. From the organisation of my Outlook to my planning of projects it has had such an impact to the way I work and the effectiveness of what I do.
There is also much to be said about the fact that I just feel on top of my work!
