Training In Management, Leadership and Communication

To provide future leaders with the skills they need to become effective leaders within their organization. 

These courses are particularly valuable for organizations such as lawyers, accountants or estate agents which have organizational structures through which the majority of employees are expected to progress over time.

The courses can, however, be equally valuable for employers who have identified specific employees needing to acquire leadership skills in order to move onwards and upwards in their organisation.

The topics covered on these courses are:

  • what is leadership
  • communication for leaders
  • presentation skills
  • strategy
  • high performance teams
  • motivation and resilience.

Coaching and Mentoring

COACHING helps employees to address specific short-term issues. MENTORING supplies longer term career development support and advice, drawing on the broad business experience of our mentors.

Coaching and Mentoring

****COACHING: **this seeks to deliver specific, detailed and measurable performance gains to emplyees.

Our global team of Sandstone coaches all have vast corporate and/or practical leadership experience.

We match a coach from our pool to a client’s experiences and needs, so that the coach can properly understand the client’s issues and be in a position to make appropriate inputs where required.

MENTORING: many blue chip organisations invest in their high potential staff by assigning an external mentor to help them navigate their way through the complexities of their developing career.

Unlike coaching, which help employees address specific short-term issues, mentoring supplies longer term career development support and advice, drawing on the broad business experience of the mentors.

Sandstone mentors will work with executives at any level in an organisation.

Our mentors are all Sandstone principals with significant business experience.
