Suitable for:       All What does this mean?

We’re all aware that sometimes we can become fatigued by the requirement of our role to be compassionate to customers, to colleagues and to all those with whom we come into contact. It can be very easy to snap at people, to expect that they understand what we do, to believe that they deserve a less than compassionate response to their situation. All of this is human and understandable and this session, won’t criticise you for feeling that way.

What it will do is help you understand why that happens and help you bring in to your working day behaviours that will help prevent compassion fatigue and help you deliver the best service to everyone, meaning that you also have a less fatiguing and negative experience.

  • Our trainer

    Simon Thomas’s passion for Learning and Development comes from the satisfaction of making a difference. Helping people to be at their best in work, (and life), fuels his quest to facilitate the most game-changing learning interventions possible.

    His career spans 16 years as a senior leader within Asda/Wal-Mart, progressing through a broad range of senior operational, strategic and commercial positions within the Head Office. Throughout his career Simon has always been deeply involved with developing talent through coaching, mentoring, recruitment and delivering leadership skills programmes. As you might expect from his background, Simon is supremely customer-focused, and always goes the extra mile to deliver memorable learning experiences. His personal learning journey has earned him a CIPD Level 7 accreditation in Learning & Development, Certificates in Stress Management, NLP and Coaching (CMI Level7), accredited practitioner for both the Lumina Spark psychometric model and the Heartstyles Life Indicator – plus he’s a qualified Hypnotherapist and Mental Health First Aider.

    Simon has delivered a broad spectrum of training across all Government Departments such as the Royal Air Force, HM Prison Service and the Dept of Work & Pensions, where he brought learning to life for senior Civil Servants. He also facilitates experiential leadership and wellbeing programmes for organisations and private clients in the UK and around the world. The range of people Simon supports is broad, from professional cyclists wanting to develop their mindset, to global leadership teams aiming to develop cross-cultural impact.

    As part of a hand-picked Associate training team, he has worked for the past 5 years across Europe and Middle East for Lexus Europe on their Luxury Brand & Customer Experience programme. Simon has a secret passion for both history, and creating experiences that move people, and so it is no surprise that he specializes in bringing Lexus stories to life, enabling retailer teams to connect on a more emotional level with customers, and maximise brand value.
