NEW for Autumn 2019 - Health and Wellbeing Workshops for Team Building.

21/08/19 10:21

We are living in an age of choice. The amount of choices we have are making living healthy and happy lives more and more difficult.

What should we eat? How do we relax? Stress? What exercise should we do? What time do we go to bed?

Working with health and wellbeing professionals EML Team has deigned as series of accessible team workshops that help you and your team to make good choices.

Our workshops focus on the three key areas of movement, nutrition and mindfulness and are aimed  at changing the environmental context of your workplace to facilitate your team making healthy options the default choice.

Why People Don't Hit Sales Targets?

09/08/19 15:58

To be able to say “I smashed my sales target” after the countless calls, emails, visits, proposals, knock backs and tussles with tough “gatekeepers” offers one of the most satisfying feelings a salesperson can have.

It solidifies our positions as people who show resilience, determination and a willingness to pull out all the stops to get our jobs done.

Unfortunately, this statement rings true for only a small percentage of salespeople on a regular basis.  Lots of people working in business development, account management, telesales or field-based sales roles experience “near misses” or even “blank months”.

Don’t underestimate the importance of “Fun” – Using Team Building Activities to Identify Skills Needs

13/05/19 11:00

 

Apparently, Summer is nearly here.  Not the “fake Summer” we get during the Easter Bank holiday,  but the real one – June through to September.

Typically, these are very busy months for businesses like ours because we are working hard to deliver all sorts of Team Building events for organisations all over the Country.  Activities like our “Soapbox Derby”, “Junkyard Challenge” or “All Manor of Mystery” are popular during the Summer because many employers feel that this is a good time to reward and recognise the hard work of their workforce and strengthen team dynamics.

Multinational and Multilingual Team Building and Team Development Workshop

08/04/19 11:00

 

EML was recently asked to provide an MBTI team building workshop for a UK senior team. The client was exacting in their expectations for the workshop. The tone had to be right, the level of MBTI theory had to be reconciled with a high level of existing MBTI knowledge within such an experienced team and the focus of the workshop needed to be on outcomes. Fun was important but only a part of the equation.

Supporting Learning Providers.

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.

The Art of Creating a Great Team

18/03/19 10:30

 

We are often asked for a creative and meaningful indoor session for 2 to 3 hours to be held in the main conference room.

When our consultants speak to clients on the phone to discuss the event we usually find that activities such as our Art Factory are mentioned, though sometimes with a certain amount of trepidation on the clients behalf because “they can’t draw”…!

“I’d LOVE to be able to stop being so shy….”

11/03/19 10:30

 

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!

So, it was interesting when I read some of the forty feedback forms from our latest “Communications Masterclass” – an event that EML designed and delivered specifically for a group of Apprentices from several East Midlands based employers.

Super Charge Your Sales Conference Team Building Activity.

28/02/19 10:30

When your order books are full and your sales team is flying high you can be forgiven for being a little complacent. As a target driven sales team leader, it’s harder to perceive weaknesses in and threats to your sales team’s performance when you’re winning.

An Introvert On The Front Line: The Hidden Benefits Of Allowing Different Team Members The Chance To Lead

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. These can be equally present in a so-called introverted personality, as they can in an extrovert. Many of history’s greatest world leaders have been considered introverts, among them Mahatma Gandhi and Woodrow Wilson.
