Olive Strachan Resources announces their summer line-up of training programmes with a focus on inspiration and motivation.
Olive says, ‘Both of our country's leading politicians suffered from some rocky moments on the campaign trail, but it was Jeremy Corbyn who eventually smashed the polls to achieve a huge political upset. So how did he do it? The answer is, of course, knowing how to lead.’
But can you learn how to lead people? Does the ability to inspire and motivate people come naturally or is it something you can pick up? For Manchester-based entrepreneur Olive Strachan, it's definitely the latter.
For the past 18 years, Olive has been working to teach professionals how to lead, how to inspire, and how to engage their staff members at her firm, Olive Strachan Resources. She's just announced her summer training programmes and there's a clear focus on delivering the inspiration that managers need to refresh the energy of their staff over the summer months.
July will see OSR delivering training in areas including 'Influencing and Persuading Skills', 'Driving Performance', and 'The Strategic and Inspiring Leader'.
The summer months can also be a time of flux and change in workplaces across the country and that's why Olive will also be sharing her expertise in 'Diversity Inclusion & Unconscious Bias', 'Handling Difficult Situations', and 'Managing Change' towards the end of July.
From August, Olive and her team are slightly switching up their output to focus on how leaders can provide insight and inspiration to their colleagues. 'Delivery Through People', 'The Effective People Manager', and 'Effective Communicator' will all be running from OSR's Manchester office throughout August.
A full list of OSR's summer courses can be found on the OSR website.
Of course, the summer months can be a seriously busy time for some businesses and that's why OSR have announced that all their summer courses will be echoed in September and October. Even if you don't find the time to book a course in summer, there's no need to panic!
From their Manchester office, Olive Strachan Resources have worked with some huge clients including the British Council, Odeon, and CIPD, and has even broadened her horizons globally.
With courses aimed at managers, leaders, and anyone else looking to boost their intrapersonal skills, Olive has something for everyone. Perhaps Theresa May will be wishing she'd taken part in Olive's 'Influencing And Persuading Skills' course this week.
Commercial Director, Sam Ashton of Packaging Automation Ltd – a global engineering and manufacturing company says: “The effect of the OSR Employee Engagement programme has had on all the staff is truly rewarding and promising for the future.”
She adds: “The culture change is evident and everyone is more motivated, it has been an enriching experience for everyone involved.”
OSR's courses are accessible to anyone and very affordable, costing between £150 and £299 + VAT per session, and aim to exponentially increase your workforce's output, helping you to deliver real, workable solutions to every challenge you might face.
If your workplace has questions, then Olive and her team have the answers!
