What We Do

We design and deliver customised training solutions for your specific needs.
We start by asking you the all-important question "what change do you want to see." From this point we can decide what are the appropriate skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to make this change a reality.

Training Needs Analysis
All of our training is built around the training cycle and we will spend time with you during the TNA phase to fully understand where you are and where you want to get to as a result of this training. We will also understand your business and business environment.

During the design phase we design the workshop activities to appeal to the three main senses of sight, sound, feeling to ensure that all the delegates benefit from training delivered in their preferred style.

Don't expect "chalk and talk" your delegates will be involved in individual or group working right from the start. We believe that people learn by doing not listening and that creation is better than consumption. Where possible we will use real live work place cases to practice new skills, this could even involve the use of actors to enhance practice sessions.

We assess via the use of quizzes/teach backs/skills practice and other demonstrations of competence. These sessions are used to correct and enhance the delegates new skills.

We feel that evaluation is best managed by the training sponsor and are always glad when asked to be involved in the evaluation process.



How We Do it:

By listening to you and understanding your exact needs.

Our Team

We are a small and friendly team having experience in many industries, from Civil Service Organisations, NHS, through to pharmaceutical and engineering. We have worked in diverse locations such as Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Greece, France, Switzerland, Romania, and Poland.

  • At Inspire Development we are all involved in the development of others, so we feel that we should also develop ourselves.
  • We work closely with you to understand your needs
  • Our training styles draws on the latest developments from areas such as neuro-science, emotional intelligence,NLP and accelerated learning.
  • We even use actors to give realism to skills practice sessions

Each year we attend several developmental workshops and courses ranging from cartooning and magic for trainers to an MEd in training and development. We believe that we cannot develop others if we are not developing ourselves, and continually asking is there a better way to do this for the client.

Many training companies have off the shelf courses, we do not. We will ask you lots of questions like, what do you want to see happening differently? And how would you describe the current gap in performance. In the past we have spent time with delegates in the field so we are able to carry out an effective TNA.

As part of our own development we have become accredited to run several diagnostic tools, such as the Hay Groups emotional intelligence (ECI) tool, which we regularly use in a Leadership programme for a global pharmaceutical company along with the Strength Deployment Inventory. A tool that helps us understand what motivates others to behave in the way they do. This increased understanding of our self and others leads to more productive relationships for sales people, managers and any one in a role that requires us to interact with others.

To add realism to our workshops we can use trained actors, this really helps the skills development of sales people and managers alike. Our actors are highly skilled in giving feedback and add a lot of value to our delegates learning.

360 Appraisals
We have a range of 360 degree assessment tools to cover developmental needs from team performance to emotional intelligence

Emotional intelligence
Often measured as an Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ), describes an ability, capacity, or skill to perceive, assess, and manage the emotions of one's self, of others, and of groups.

The Strength Deployment Inventory is a learning resource that has been proved to be effective in building strong relationships worldwide for more than 25 years. It enables everyone to understand the reason why people do things rather than just observe and react to what is done. Hide...
