What are your BIG issues?

Thank you for visiting our page.

It’s possible you’ve come to us to address some big Issues.

Recent years have shown tremendous changes in the workplace with greater demands on Employers and Employees to deal with those changes.

With more pressure to do more … with less, it’s more important than ever that you have a workforce that leads, manages and performs to expectations.

Organisations like yours want to:

  • Develop great leaders and managers
  • Create teams that deliver on objectives
  • Enhance “engagement” in the workplace
  • Deliver better service or sell more
  • Retain and train your key staff

You’ll need someone who doesn’t just deliver “training” but can quickly absorb themselves in your organisation and the challenges you face. You will appreciate someone who listens to what you want, not give you what they think you need.

How can we help with that?

You’ll want to work with people who have a track record of delivery and working in partnership with organisations just like yours. No Guru are your “training partner” and over the last 10 years have worked with:
  • British Gas & British Gas Business
  • Warburton’s
  • Capita Life and Pensions
  • Leeds NHS
  • Leeds Beckett University
  • Bibby Offshore
  • Riverside Housing
And many more, from large Public Sector and Blue Chip companies to a diverse range of SME’s we’re proud to be the partner of choice. If this sounds promising, why not have a look at some case studies in working with us and what we do. Equally, feel free to call us to talk about any potential requirements you have.  We’ll be glad to help.

Image Triage – be careful what you post

How to avoid public ‘shaming’

If you’ve ever read Jon Ronson’s book ‘Shamed’, you will know the devastating effect social media can have on people who have posted something stupid on the internet.

Ronson highlights the case of Justine Sacco (a director of corporate communications) who, before boarding an 11-hour flight from Heathrow to Cape Town, Tweeted to her 170 followers what she thought was a series of lighthearted, acerbic comments about her journey. (more…)

Across the great divide

Let’s be kinder to each other in 2017

There is a striking memorial in a park in Indianapolis.  It marks the spot where in April 1968, Robert Kennedy told a waiting crowd that Martin Luther King had been shot and killed, before speaking from the heart and his own personal experience, that violence is never an answer to our grievances.  His calming words quelled the rioting that other cities endured in the days after Dr King’s death and, arguably, saved some lives that night.


The memorial itself is an arresting work of art.  (more…)
