The Know it and Show it Programme
We offer a range of workshops that are designed to help participants enhance their personal credibility and as a result enhance their influence and impact in the workplace. The workshops are part of our flagship programme.
This programme has been designed in response to the fact that performance only plays a small part in workplace promotion (10%). Visibility and exposure accounts for 60% and personal image for 30%. It is essential to both Know it And Show (you know) It.
The Know it and Show It Programme focuses on strategies that can be used to successfully and professionally demonstrate capabilities, performance and potential.

Being authentic and ‘Walking the talk’ is about knowing what you stand for, and communicating it, matching what you say to what you do, and delivering what you say you will. This means:-
- You are seen as credible
- People know where they stand with you and are more likely to trust you
- You know what to focus on, and achieve results and outcomes
‘Walking the talk’ will give you credibility with others and confidence in yourself, in your abilities and behaviours.
What will be covered on the course?

See challenges as opportunities instead of threats.
A course designed to help understand how to deal with challenging situations and challenging people
Challenging situations crop up in every area of our lives. They can have a negative impact – if you let them. Dealing effectively with challenging situations means:-
- You feel confident to deal with challenges
- You are more likely to get your outcomes
- You have reduced levels of stress
Challenging situations become more challenging if we view them as ‘difficult’. Challenging situations are only as difficult as we choose to let them be.
What will be covered on the course?
- Identifying your challenging situations and their impact
- Identifying the triggers and your responses
- Techniques to help manage challenging situations
CIPD Trainer Assessment Team Feedback
“The feedback from those that met you was positive; they would feel comfortable with you working with their clients when suitable opportunities are identified. Those in attendance were pleased with your Sample learning session.
Members of the team that met with you for the sample learning session said they liked your confidence, people skills and the energy and passion displayed. A member of staff said he was disappointed; you will be pleased to discover this was because he wanted the session to go on for longer than the time allocated as it was of genuine benefit to him.
The lack of PowerPoint slides was appreciated by the team who thought it allowed for more creativity and interest”

“Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenter”

“This is the only training course I’ve enjoyed. Thank you”
“Great style of training. By far the best training I’ve been on. Lots of useful literature. Not at all like a classroom environment. Tailored for relevancy and very much adult to adult. Promoted bonding between the team leaders”
