Twenty first century organisations need staff to actively engage in their career and skill development. This begins with exploring and shaping their emotional intelligence to work with colleagues and clients. Being able to understand the impact of positivity, resilience and stress management on wellbeing and employability supports an individual’s capacity to navigate their career and work effectively in contemporary organisations.

Future and emerging leadership development is essential for those staff needing to shift their focus from self to having responsibility for the productivity of others. PDT Consultancy can provide a series of customised workshops that reflect your organisation’s identified focus for leadership development from our range of learning opportunities.

PDT offers workshops that can be built with a single or multi-purpose focus in the following areas:

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence

We bring extensive experience in using MBTI, EQ-I 2.0 and the EQ 360 instruments. Workshops enable participants to reflect on the impact of different interpersonal styles and approaches and how to adapt to the needs and complexities of varying situations. This is often a base to other development experiences.

Future and Emerging Leadership Skills

Future and Emerging Leadership Skills

We are experienced in designing and delivering a workshop series for aspiring and new leaders to understand and build capability when responsible for influencing the outcomes of others. New leaders need to be mindful of the changed context of their responsibilities and how that impacts on workplace relationships.
