Chance Encounter Gives Rise to New Training course

When an award‐winning Business Coach and an experienced HR expert met each other for the first time earlier this year, little did they realise that just a few months later, they would be end up presenting an exciting new personal development course together.

Claire and Lynn

That though, is just what happened when Coach and Author, Claire Cahill of Accendo coaching and Training, bumped into Lynn Collins, Head of HR at Chesterfield solicitors’ Spencers, at a North East Derbyshire Network meeting.

Very quickly, it became apparent that Claire and Lynn both shared the same passion ‐ to help people become the best they can possibly be, whether that be in their personal or their business lives. It quickly became apparent too, that when put together their respective professional skill sets would dovetail each other’s perfectly!

As a result, the duo have designed an in ‐depth new course aimed at enabling individuals to become ‘their best selves.’ The course, which is titled Ignite Your Potential, will consist of 4 modules run over a period of 4 consecutive months. Each individual, day‐long, session can be completed in isolation. However, to gain maximum benefit delegates are strongly advised to attend all four days of the complete course.

The 4 individual sessions are;

  1. Understanding self
  2. Understanding and working with others
  3. Embracing change
  4. Measuring success

Attendees will be encouraged to –

  • get honest with themselves
  • reflect on where they are now
  • decide where they would really like to be

The course is aimed at;

  1. Individuals who are embarking on change
  2. Business owners wanting to develop strategic thinking
  3. People returning to work after a career break
  4. Those who may be at a cross roads in their career

However, the course will greatly benefit anyone who would like to invest time into their own personal development as well as those who want to start feeling more confident about themselves.

"Leadership is an inside job so to become the best version of yourself, you need to invest in your personal development. These workshops will provide those attending with an opportunity to increase their knowledge and develop their skills. With increased skill competence people gain a new found confidence, too."
Claire Cahill

Topics covered will include;

  • Emotional intelligence
  • Communication skills
  • Assertiveness
  • SWOT analysis
  • Decision making
  • Dealing with change
  • Conflict management

Each attendee will go away with their own personal development plan, including reports on their leadership skills and preferred communication style. They will be provided with a detailed insight into how they are likely to operate in different situations, through personality profiling. Every delegate will leave with a renewed sense of self and a focus that will serve them well in any environment.

“I am really excited to be working in collaboration with Claire. I think that between us we have the perfect combination of skills, expertise, experience and great content to bring to this course course to ensure that people really leave the sessions with the tools to succeed at becoming the best they can be”
Lynn Collins

The course dates are as follows;

  • 18th September 19
  • 16th October 19
  • 13th November 19
  • 4th December 19

All four sessions of the course will be held at the offices of Spencers Solicitors, Spire Walk Business Park, Chesterfield, S40 2WG. There is an early bird rate for those who purchase tickets before 30th August 2019.
