PP products consist of a series of training workshops designed to support newly appointed leaders officers to carry out the roles and functions required of them as change-makers. The objective of the programme is to raise the professional capability and confidence of leaders and provide a range of management, personal and organisational skills development needed for success in their roles. It will also help them understand the internal and external context in which they operate and how to successfully negotiate the organisation’s political environment.
PP utilises a powerful set of tools to aid the successful delivery of internal and external change. From experience we know that effective delivery is as much about people as it is about applying proven systems and processes. Our consultants are skilled at helping clients to apply cutting edge techniques to help build effective business strategies which are inclusive of the needs of internal and external stakeholders. A key part of our approach is to achieve good transfer of knowledge and skills and empower leaders to achieve a higher state of organisational maturity.
Diversity is a given and a blessing. Deployed effectively it can transfuse an organisation with fresh energies and fuel innovation. However, if diversity is neglected and left unmanaged misunderstandings, discontent and conflict can begin to interrupt the smooth running of a business.

Whatever your requirements, from equality strategies, through to impact assessments and training we can support your organisation to reap the benefits of diversity.

Organisational development, changes brought about by restructuring as well as the need to provide key employees with support through a change of role or career are often catalysts, which inspire organisations to seek coaching or mentoring. At one time coaching and mentoring were reserved for senior managers and company directors, now it is available to all as a professional or personal development tool. Our Coaching and Mentoring support are also closely linked with organisational change initiatives in order to help staff to accept and adapt to changes in a manner consistent with their personal values and goals. We provide coaching for Black & Minority Ethnic staff as an essential part of positive action strategies.
If managers are having a difficult time understanding how to engage and support ethnic minority staff our diversity coaching programme is designed to help set goals and establish the appropriate mindset for successful professional relationship with BME staff.
