Our programmes are a unique blend of:

  • Strategic and Operational Planning
  • Training and Development
  • Organisational Effectiveness Consulting
  • Coaching and Mentoring
  • Managing change
  • Unlocking potential
  • Support

We believe firmly in the concept that the environment that exists within a team is set by the leadership of that team. Far too many Business Leaders blame their team when things are not working, instead of taking responsibility themselves. A reluctance to accept responsibility could result from a variety of reasons. 

Our interventions address these reasons.

It is important to note that the manner in which we facilitate this generic programme means that the outcomes achieved per company can differ. 

We have found that by working systematically through the content, the particular needs of each and every company will be determined and addressed.

The name of the programme “Wired to Influence” speaks for itself and being in an HR environment it highlighted again the importance of team dynamics, effective organisational communication and improving overall organisation effectiveness.

The benefit to the business has been improved staff retention, less blame, people who use their initiative, better team efforts and a general sense of people who love to come to work every day.

I would really recommend the The Ripple Effect and the staff, we find value in their courses and they make an effort to understand the business and the people.
