In this the second paper in the series, we turn our attention to the importance…
Acorn are trainers, coaches and consultants. Most importantly, we are people with over 25 years’ experience within the management development industry, with a proven track record across diverse industry sectors.
Team coaching, leadership development, one-to-one performance coaching – Acorn work with people from graduate to board level with project collaborations, executive teams and high performing individuals.
Our pragmatic, no-nonsense approach delivers real business benefits. Acorn engage people more effectively and learning is retained because it is of practical benefit and immediately relevant.
Creating a professional relationship allows our coach to work collaboratively to help individuals achieve their business and personal objectives, with a dialogue based on trust and the belief in a person’s ability to change.
From newly formed joint ventures to complex projects, Acorn’s Project Team Coaching process can be flexibly applied to deliver business benefits at any stage of a project – from initial bid through delivery to completion.
Moving towards a more collaborative culture often requires a organisational change. Acorn work within challenging projects in construction, infrastructure, engineering, nuclear and other industry sectors where collaboration is key to success.
A proven approach for businesses to look deep into their organisation, helping identify who can fill current operational gaps and those who can be the leaders of the future.
Acorn have a proven track record of helping organisations develop and support emerging talent – accelerate the integration and competence of graduates, apprentices and fast-track employees to achieve real business benefits.
Suitable for new line managers and those with experience who want to improve their effectiveness, through demonstration and practice delegates gain confidence in their ability to effectively manage others.
Other providers, particularly those that can offer fully funded services, are playing a key part in helping to grow the practical/theoretical skill set of our leadership team through one-off or adhoc training interventions. However, I see Acorn’s role as a more strategic one, especially given their in depth knowledge of our business, that works alongside the executive team to coach us to our best possible performance.
REACT’s long standing working relationship with Acorn continues to deliver practical, real world outcomes for all of the individuals involved.
Keith and team have to date enabled my team to develop and mature in a way I wasn’t expecting so quickly. Every session we have had is well prepared, informative, thought provoking and providing real change to my team. Going forward I will be looking to use Acorn/ Keith on a regular basis as I can’t see any organisation who delivers the results I had since using them in my 20 years building teams for infrastructure projects.
“The progress that the team has made since our session with Acorn has been remarkable. There is a noticeable step-change in our outputs and outcomes which has been recognised by all of our stakeholders.”
