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.
“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.”
“The Acorn programme has been instrumental in really focusing the project lead team on identifying and driving through improvements, leading to multi million pound savings. We have a strong and effective delivery team but have seen further improvements through our work with Acorn.”
“This was a new concept to me but talking through the process with Acorn made the transition easy. The coaching intervention enabled me to quickly learn how to manage a team of people, allowing me to focus on the task at hand; managing the bid process and all tender submissions for Lexia Solutions Group.”
“Acorn’s involvement delivered significant benefits both in terms of the contractor / client / customer relationships, and also helped facilitate more effective working practices between the various Skanska business units involved in different construction disciplines on the site.”
