    Our Core Beliefs for Global Organisations

    Uncertainty. Organisations and leaders require the skills to survive and thrive in situations of low certainty and low agreement. The uncertain economic environment and the interdependence of the economic actors makes increasingly difficult for leaders and organizations and individuals to anticipate the immediate future.

    Relationships. The ability to develop resilient relationships and teams is at the core of the capacity of one organization to absorb and create change. Learning how to develop sustainable and mutually enriching relationships with all stakeholders reinforces the capacity to learn and adapt of one organization.

    Context. The diversity of social rules and conventions in intercultural environments that we are exposed to makes increasingly difficult to find ‘the right way of doing’ both in our private and professional lives. More often than less we need ‘ad-hoc’ and contextual solutions that require a more complex decision making process

OUR SERVICES

Leadership & Organisational Development

Positive Development’s leadership and management development programs help managers develop themselves, develop others, improve work processes, lead organizational change, and improve team effectiveness and processes. We use our long and deep experience in organizational change and interpersonal communication to help organizations develop a coherent leadership style that ensures adaptation to the changing environment.

Leader as a coach

It is designed for organisations who want to equip their line managers with the skills needed to demonstrate a more facilitative style and to get the best out of their people through a balanced use of active support and constructive challenge.

Interpersonal Communication

We offer leaders and managers the opportunity to understand the underlying mechanisms of interpersonal communication and discover their strengths and weakness, as well as the content of the beliefs and value systems

Managing cross-cultural and virtual teams

There is an increasing pressure on organizations to work with highly cross-cultural and virtual team where the traditional management techniques do not provide always the expected outputs. We offer leaders and managers alternatives paths for engaging their team members and improve performance

Team Cooperation

It is designed for teams willing to understand the development of a group culture and the implications of the competition-cooperation dynamics in their performance

Executive Coaching

Executive coaching is the development of a confidential space for reflection where leaders have the opportunity to explore honestly and fully their worldview and evaluate their personal and professional choices and decisions and the impact in their team members, peers and the organisation. This exploration happens with the support of a professional: the coach

Positive Development’s coaching programs help middle managers and senior leaders:

  • Find practical solutions to leadership challenges, in particular for virtual and multicultural environments
  • Identified conflicts, resources and the small actions to achieve big impact
  • Build on the leader’s capacity to develop teams and relationships with stakeholders
  • Improve confidence and clarify goals

Training For Positive Development

Knowledge into Training. We work with our clients in transforming their technical knowledge into high-impact training adapted to the targeted audience based on state-of-the-art adult learning theory and practice.

Public Speaking into Facilitation. We ensure that the technical experts and managers of organizations that have to deliver trainings add facilitation skills for specific workshops and programmes.

Training Delivery. Our trainers and facilitators lead 1-2 day workshops at the client location, week-long off-site programs, or several-month extended programs linked by intersession activities, such as individual coaching or mentoring projects.

Virtual Training. We design dynamic e-learning programmes that facilitate the access to key knowledge for all stakeholders of the organisation in a highly cost-effective way

OUR CLIENTS

NON-PROFIT ORGANISATIONS

NON-PROFIT ORGANISATIONS

Many NGOs have an international or global mandate supported by a slim organizational structure. The budget limitation of those organization often limit their capacity to invest in state-of-the-art training or leadership development capacity in order not to hamper their advocacy, technical and project management needs.

Small and Medium Enterprises

Small and Medium Enterprises

Similar to NGOs, the commercial urgency and limited budget of small organizations often leaves training and leadership development outside the immediate strategic priorities.

Multilateral Organisations Projects

Multilateral Organisations Projects

The success of international development or public-private projects is very much related to the capacity of developing a group of experts into a highly effective team that is able to translate technical content into impact in a very limited period of time.
