We deliver the above training as short courses in isolation or as part of a tailored management development programme:

Tailored management development programmes:

Our management programmes are bespoke; designed to perfectly fit your organisation’s objectives and management needs. We’ll work with you to identify the current performance and skills needs of your managers and then design a carefully tailored programme that will get the results you want.

Our programmes often combine management skills training and leadership development, including our powerful 360 degree feedback & review approach.

One-to-one coaching for senior managers:

We also provide individual coaching for high value managers to improve their skills and change behaviours. Coaching allows for much more focused development time and gets results fast. Purple Orange coaching programmes involve 360 degree reviews, personalised reports and ongoing development plans (find out more about our one-to-one coaching service here).
