Successful delivery of change requires a combination of tool-set and mind-set. 

A review of effective behaviours for business change can readily be mapped onto emotional intelligence frameworks, reflecting the need to be self-aware, manage our state, develop social awareness so that we can hear what isn’t being said, and exercise social influence to lead groups and manage stakeholders.


Behavioural change is difficult to accomplish through traditional methods and classroom training, but we have achieved measurable performance changes by adopting and adapting an NLP approach and toolset in combination with a group coaching approach.


In this talk Peter will share the approach, tools and techniques as well as case studies illustrating achievements to date showing how personal benefits and business results can be achieved for you and your organisation.
