What we do
This is intended to help you understand the range of our activities, our purpose for doing this work, and some of the thinking behind our approach. For further clarity or more detailed information, please talk to us. We will enjoy hearing from you.
Our areas of expertise include:
We provide professional mentoring for individuals and groups - online or in person. We specialise in on-line mentoring services augmented by telephone contact; publications (self-study guidebooks and workbooks) to support change; progress review, monitoring and appraisal processes, including 360° surveys online.
We also provide appraisal processes, tuition and facilitation services especially though not exclusively for improved team, group or organisational performance.
We supply downloadable articles, discussion papers, guidebooks, self-appraisal and planning documents, to support readers' own initiatives or to motivate others. Note: These are supplied from library of our associated website, Thriving Workplace.
Our services are readily accessible, flexible, economical, client-informed, principle-based and ideas-led.
They are especially targeted at individuals who realise they need support for development or have been required to make changes, but who find group training programmes inappropriate, inconvenient or too expensive.
Who we work with
We work with people anywhere for work-related or personal reasons - individuals and teams in commercial, governmental or other public service and individual business owners - who understand the value and potential of what we have to offer.
We work best with people who are committed to taking responsibility for their own long-term development. Consultants, community leaders, parents, educationists and administrators in voluntary organisations are amongst our clients.
EncourageMentors is a response to the frustrations that arise when our current behavioural repertoire won't make the difference needed to successfully collaborate with other people, bring about productive cohesion in groups and teams, or manage both our commitments and ourselves.
We encourage and help develop increased capacity for self management, personal and interpersonal effectiveness, person-centred performance management and leadership-with-heart.
Our purpose is to help people find or rediscover dignity and fulfillment in their lives, their relationships and work, wherever these aspirations are consistent with equitable relationships with other people and shared responsibility for the larger living world.
Most requests for our services arise when people recognise some interruption to their effectiveness as individuals or to potential group performance: destructive interpersonal conflict, frustrations, confusion, annoying and recurring problems, wasted resources and individual, group or organisational dysfunction.
Our work succeeds because of our focus on creating frameworks for self-perpetuated development, the care we take to ensure that we deal with the underlying causes of problems, the effort we put into modeling the message, the integrity of our processes, and the practical day-to-day usefulness of the resulting insights and competencies.
Our reputation is founded on what is timeless, generic and practical - whatever the present or foreseeable trends. Although we support all soundly-based innovations in organisation, team and individual development, we favour commonsense above current fad.
We are known for creating learning environments in which people feel safe, experience themselves as treated respectfully, and are supportively and significantly challenged to develop their capacity.
Whether or not this approach succeeds with you, depends on very many factors including your openness, willingness and commitment to making change - and your readiness for it.
