Leadership & People Performance Workshops

As an accredited TakeON! partner, POD delivers TakeON! programmes for business performance that get people working together on what matters most. Imagine people across your organisation coming together regularly, discussing what’s already working, what could be improved, and how they can contribute. Dozens of suggestions are generated and acted upon. The power comes not from a single silver-bullet idea, but in creating a culture of constant incremental change.

Takeon! workshops

TakeON! workshops are conversation-lead, yet structured facilitated workshop sessions, where we make sure the 'theory' is interactive, fun and highly transferrable to the workplace. Each module focuses the team on specific challenges that you and the business face ‘today’ and have been designed on the proven premise that when people generate their own ideas, they are more likely to own and implement them.

Results are wide ranging and always positive.

 

We can run TakeON! Modules individually or as a programme of workshops tailored to your business. Modules run for approximately 3.5 hours.
