Training, coaching, and mentoring

In line with our mission to enable real and sustainable change in the public sector and do ourselves out of a job; training, coaching and mentoring are at the heart of our approach. We offer a broad suite of training programmes and have built up a strong reputation in delivering effective, practical training that participants can implement from day one. All of our training programmes are accredited by the Lean, Agile, and Systems Thinking Public Service Transformation Academy (LAST-PSTA) and receive outstanding feedback.  

However more often than not, the types of challenges our clients are facing require more than learning new skills and theories; they are complex, social, systemic and cultural issues that need people to re-think the way they view their work and change the way they behave to get their jobs done. This requires a shift in thinking and a change in habits.

Our coaching practice supports individuals to improve their thinking, behaviours and performance. It is rooted in the latest discoveries from neuro-science and focusses on helping individuals become aware of their mental “hard wiring” and learn how to make new connections. Working with a coach can give individuals the really powerful lift that they need to get the results that they want.

  • Enhancing emotional intelligence
  • Developing leadership potential by improving networking, self-promotion and relationship skills
  • Developing strategic leadership and commercial competencies especially around delivering transformational change
  • Reducing staff turnover

'I have worked with RedQuadrant on two leadership and culture change programmes over the last 12 months. RedQuadrant’s specific contribution has been threefold. They carried out baseline diagnostic work, including leadership profiling and 360◦ appraisal, facilitated some of the collective training interventions, and subsequently provided individual performance coaching and action learning sets.

Debbie Jones’s contribution as change coach has been outstanding. The response from managers has been overwhelmingly positive. Not only are we seeing direct improvements in leadership behaviours but managers have valued the coaching experience as an opportunity to develop personally and as a leader; and this has positively affected their view of the authority.'
