Workplace Issues

I work with organisations and their people devising strategies to recruit, motivate, develop, change and inspire. Most people spend a third of their adult lives at work. Work defines people in the most basic way, which is one reason why retirement is difficult for many people. As a psychologist, I am involved in finding ways to reduce workplace stress, studying people’s motivation and job satisfaction. Common workplace issues around which a programme may be designed are:
  • Staff wellbeing and performance.
  • One-on-One coaching, mentoring and counselling is offered to executives and staff, motivating, supporting organisations to set goals and deadlines, maximising performance.
  • Emotional intelligence.
  • Self-leadership aimed at developing self-understanding and response flexibility.
  • Leadership development and the environment they create.
  • Helping managers lead, engage and motivate their people.
  • Building resilience in leaders.
  • Communication problems between management and staff.
  • Improving listening skills.
  • Strategies to deal with difficult people effectively.
  • Conflict management and managing change.
  • Bullying and/or sexual harassment.
  • Work /life balance.
  • Stress.
  • Team building to create a high performance organisation.
  • Myers- Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and DiSC profiles are used in coaching and team development. Both are useful tools for helping staff understand their current patterns of behaviour as well as helping them move toward a better understanding of their colleagues.
  • Individual career development.
