From the design and delivery of fun, engaging team building events, through to tailor made training and development, we are always passionate about supporting the skills development of our Clients' workforce.

We also appreciate that the Apprenticeship programme can be a valuable tool in recruiting staff to an organisation as well as offering a great way to "up-skill" existing employees, and give people an opportunity to gain a recognised qualification while they work.

Do you need hand picked hotels for your team offsite?

25/03/19 10:21

 

Occasionally members of the EML Team need to check out venues and hotels from a customer point of view.

This isn’t something I’ve ever had to worry about.  I’ve worked in a business development and training delivery role for over twenty years, so talking to people over the telephone or in a face to face situation has never phased me.

I guess I could be considered “lucky” when it comes to communication.

I don’t get nervous when I need to present to others, I don’t get worried or stressed about picking up the telephone, and most people will tell you I’m not shy in getting my point across!

20/02/19 16:17

 

A leader needs to have the confidence to stand up and be heard, but a loud voice is not the only characteristic of a good leader. Determination, technical skill, good memory, empathy, calmness under pressure, humility and sympathetic communication are all desirable features in a leader.

Many of history’s greatest world leaders have been considered introverts, among them Mahatma Gandhi and Woodrow Wilson.

Salespeople are not all created the same; some use direct value-based tactics while others may prefer to lay on the personal charm. An individual's personality will influence the kind of strategies they use when trying to convince customers to spend money. It is useful for a business to comprehend the personality type of employees, especially during the recruiting process to see if it aligns with the company's style.

23/01/19 13:31

Team building exercises are effective ways of improving the productivity of employees, but only if they are done right. Communication is something that every manager or business leader must focus on.
