3 x 1 hour sessions per week





Suitable for:       All What does this mean?

We are all working through unchartered territories. Our working and personal lives have changed dramatically.

Now is the time when managers, supervisors and team leaders really need all the support they can get so that they can cope with the challenges and the pressures. That’s why we have put together this special offer providing a safe, confidential place for individuals to explore key issues with experienced coach Laura Bouttell, CE of Quarterdeck.

During lockdown we are offering 3 x 1 hour individual coaching sessions (via phone or video conferencing) per week for £750 per month.

That’s around £60 per session. You can use this how you like – for just one individual or a number of different people. It’s entirely up to you. You could coach your whole team over the next few months.

And remember – you could include staff who are on furlough – the Government has specifically stated that training while on furlough is a good use of time and employers should be encouraged to use it for development needs

This really will help to ensure your business is in a great position to return to normal when that happens.

    Quarterdeck is a Leadership and Management training company. They specialise in creating long term behavioural change in leaders that enables them to motivate and inspire their teams to grow the business.

    Managing Directors bring Quarterdeck in when:

    • They are striving to create self-sufficient leaders who will grow and develop the business
    • The leadership is not delegating enough and the business is stagnating or not growing as it should be
    • The communication in the leadership team or throughout the business, is stalling growth, or making progress difficult, when difficult conversations are not happening as they should
    • The leadership team, together or individually, are struggling to motivate or inspire their teams, or deal with a negative culture, or deal with stress and overwhelm.

    Clients experience tremendous success and rave about Quarterdeck’s work because their approach is different from most leadership training. They focus on giving the individual practical pragmatic skills that reap immediate rewards. They are not interested in leadership models or theories, or profiling. None of these encourage change, they encourage stagnation and excuses. 80% of Quarterdeck’s business is repeat and their NPS score is 70+, which they’re extremely proud of.

We can bring this course to you.
If you have five or more staff interested our in-house training offers great value for money.
