Published by Claire Moody

The media has a lot to be responsible for along with the IT world. All we do these days is grab our phones, read the updated messages from social media and focus on what they want us to think. To get a feeling of whats happening these days, you have to read everything.

training blog - you’re really good at that, you’d be great training it

Published by Scott Fraser

I was recently going through some of the past blogs for social media and came across one written by Ralph “Good at your job v good as a manager”. This is a subject that always rings true as I’ve witnessed it many times and it got me thinking that actually, there are huge comparisons with training:

management blog - you and I only have one problem...ignorance

Published by Ralph Moody

I was delivering a management development course recently when a delegate pointed out that they didn’t realise how much they didn’t know.  We were discussing conflict and how and why people get wound up, what causes it and how it could be an automated response created from a habit.

coaching blog - journey in life, a great area to reflect on, who are you?

Published by Claire Moody

I recently found myself responding to my son in a conversation saying the words, “Be who you are and not what you think you should be”. Be an individual and someone not conditioned to be a certain way; it is all about you being you.

training blog - my training 'bag of tricks'

Published by Scott Fraser

In my last blog I talked about the ability to “adapt and overcome” with one important part being the use of resources that are available to you.  Now as most travelling Trainers like me will tell you, we all carry what I refer to as my “bag of tricks” which is the name for my Trainer bag I take to every event.  In this blog, I’d like to share with you what my bag of tricks has in it and why:

management blog - doing something about time bandits

Published by Ralph Moody

On my last management blog, we discussed the importance of identifying our time bandits.  This is essential before we can do anything about them we must determine what they are; when we do this we must be honest. Remember, if we don’t do anything about them then nothing will change, they will continue to cause us issues and continue to be a time bandit. Therefore, we must do something about them.

training blog - can you adapt and overcome?

Published by Scott Fraser

Delivering Training is complex and is always full of challenges you may not necessarily be expecting.  This reminds me massively of my former RAF life where we had the reputation of being one of the very best Air Forces in the world, through sheer ability to “Adapt and Overcome” in the face of adversity.  On one of our recent PTT Train the Trainer courses in Leeds, our trainer Paul faced a few difficult challenges but came through them with “flying” colours (excuse the pun, but I couldn’t resist); so what skills does he, and the rest of the Target team, possess to do this so well?

management blog - identify your time bandits

Published by Ralph Moody

To be effective at anything in life we have to be able to manage time.  If we don’t manage time then quickly our life can become confusing, and before we know it, we are not completing anything we want to do.  Our working day can then become chaos where we are struggling to keep our head above water as the river forever increasing tasks starts to take over.

coaching blog - what is a perfect day?

Published by Claire Moody

How often do you walk away from work, frustrated and disappointed the day has not gone as planned? Do you ever reflect on the day and ask yourself what has happened through the day? What was good and what would you like to be different, what would you change. I think it is deeper than that when you look at the day.

training blog - the importance of continuing professional development

Published by Scott Fraser

Like everything we do in life, if we don’t do things continually or refresh / re-visit skills we’ve acquired, we can get what’s called “skills fade”.  If then your skills have faded as a Trainer, how can you expect to be able to give your people the very best training sessions?
