Many MANAGERS find themselves promoted into a managerial role because they were good at their previous role. But managing yourself and managing others are two very different sets of skills. A recent survey showed that more than a quarter of managers have never had any formal training on how to manage people, and this has impacted on their desire to stay with their current company. (Digits 2021)
“I adore Nikie and her teaching style, I thought the course would be informative and teach me the basics, but it was so much more than this. Her teaching style was so refreshing as I was engaged the whole time making me think so much deeper into each subject. Having completed my course, we asked Nikie to come back and train eight more people. I know everyone took away as much as I did from the course, Nikie is able to work with an individual or larger groups but still make everyone in the room feel comfortable and listened too, giving everyone the opportunity to ask questions and give their opinions. It’s so nice to be able to be part of the conversation rather than just being talked at. She makes learning enjoyable and stimulating which is rare, I would highly recommend her and the work she does.” Beth Ash - Production Manager
"I can’t recommend Nikie highly enough. She delivered a leadership development course for our less experiences supervisors and the feedback was fantastic. She spent time with me to understand the company, our processes and the culture and then fully tailored the content to be relevant and engaging, using language and examples our colleagues experience day to day. The feedback from the delegates was fantastic, with everyone talking about what they had taken away from it. There was noticeable improvement in the confidence on the supervisors in their day to day roles and how they engaged in conversations with their teams." Mykala Macfarlane - HR Manager
Often TRAINERS are either subject matter experts asked to share their knowledge with others, or employees who have a desire to help. Whichever path they have taken, one thing is universal, they have to have confidence in themselves, and their abilities to engage others in learning. Without this confidence, doubt creeps in for both the trainer and learners, and everyone suffers.
"Attended a fantastic session this morning on creative training ideas with the inspiring Nikie Forster of Curious Lighthouse. Sessions like these rekindle my love of teaching and remind me why I do it!
Nikie can make any topic fun, thought-provoking and effective, at any level of a corporation. Invest in your people and get her involved!"
