Always treat your employees exactly as you want them to treat your best customers.
Building resilient people and durable business to embrace opportunity, challenge and change.
Grow delivers business and people development for any type or size or enterprise - from 5 people to 5,000.
The GROW network of highly skilled consultants tackle a broad range of projects.
There are two main areas of focus for our work:
Growing your business through people:
Our organisational development projects range from little to large. You might just need team roles reviewed or advice on new policies you're required to have for your business.
Or we can help develop your strategy and people capability on a large scale.
Developing your people to grow your business:
What do your people need in order to deliver your vision? We help them grow so they can grow your business.
Together we will create a comprehensive leadership program for a large group of managers. Or a communications skills workshop for a few people. Or an all staff customer service program. No matter what you need, we can help.
Grow programs are tailored to the needs of your people and services, infused with current research, based on range of academic and real-life best practice, delivered to you in dynamic, interactive, energetic workshops.
All our work has people at its centre. We connect people to each other and to clients, to bring to life the vision and values you have for your business.
In any team technical skills are important but many businesses overlook the power of people skills or don't know how to build them. This is the single most effective way you can invest in your people and your business at the same time.
Strength through "soft" skills
In an extensive survey conducted by Google's Project Oxygen the top characteristics for success were almost all "soft skills" - people skills, the ability to be a decent and supportive human:
1. being a good coach;
2. communicating and listening well;
3. possessing insights into others (including different values and points of view);
4. having empathy toward and being supportive of one’s colleagues;
5. being a good critical thinker and problem solver; and
6. being able to make connections across complex ideas.
And last but not least .....
7. Technical skills
'Soft' skills = Strong results. And they can be taught or increased.
