What Does That Look Like?
In broad terms, our work at Distinction Business Consulting falls into categories. First up is small things: they are easy and quick to complete. The second category is medium-sized things: they require a bit more time to develop but produce great results. The third category is large things: they take time, but the results will take your business to new heights.
Small things might be a 3-hour workshop on how to handle challenging conversations or to develop a Team Question Bank to improve psychological safety, a lunch and learn session on core decision-making skills or a key-note session at your conference or event.
Medium things could include a 6-session leadership coaching programme for 1 or 2 individuals, a facilitated process to help you embed your values into your working practices or a 1-day workshop on how to effectively manage a hybrid team.
Large things could be a programme to design and develop a new decision-making framework for your organisation and team coaching on a live business critical decision or a development programme for your top team or a group of emerging leaders.
We deliver our programmes conveniently with support and resources available on-demand, wherever you are. That can be virtual, face-to-face or blended – whatever works best for you and your team. And if things change, we’re ready to switch to a fully virtual solution at short notice, meaning that we can continue to support and develop your people no matter what’s going on around you.
