Culture Change

 

Our partnership with City of Edinburgh Council and their award -winning “Spotlight Conversations” programme for all managers came to an end in March after fifteen months. We worked with hundreds of managers throughout the Council using small group bespoke coaching/role play sessions. The programme was delivered by internal facilitators supported by ourselves. We found the work rewarding and stimulating and learnt a huge amount from our Council partnership. A case study is in progress and will be available soon.

This is a brief overview of some of the work we have been doing. Please get in touch if you would like a more detailed understanding of our process and the impact of our programmes.
