We hate to see talent wasted. According to UKCES, a 1% increase in productivity increases UK GDP by £20bn pa in perpetuity – a tantalising prospect.
- Less than 30% of employees can be said to be truly engaged with their jobs
- 40% of peoples’ capacity is wasted, or not realised, within the workplace
- 65% of people are in the wrong jobs…
- …and 70% of change fails, largely due to poor leadership
(Don’t just take our word for this – have a look at what CIPD, UKCES, CMI, IOD, Gallup and other similarly acronymed organisations are saying on the subject)
Our Values – What We Believe In
Our job is to help you get to a preferred destination. We’re unlikely to tell you what to do – we’re here to listen, offer advice and help. Whether its individual learning needs or major organisational change, you’re in the driving seat.
That doesn’t mean we won’t challenge you, encourage you, and point out paths you may not even have thought about – we will! That’s where we believe value is added
But, we do that within the framework of our Values.
We want you to be able to feel comfortable going through whatever process of change you have in mind – enjoying the process is perhaps over egging it – but learning and growing in a purposeful way is our hope for you. To that end, we feel that Teamworking, Energy, Creativity, Curiosity, Challenging, and Ownership (TECCCO c) are helpful values for us all to work to.
Teamworking – the sharing of knowledge and resources, working well together, with an appropriate range of skills
Energy – a resilience, or speed of bounce back, infuse enthusiasm, motivation and excitement of all parties
Creativity – seeking variety, new and better ways to do things, using known approaches better
Curiosity – exploration, stretching our comfort zones, scouting out opportunities
Challenging – the enjoyment of receiving and giving challenges, provocation
Ownership – its yours, not ours, making a difference
- “It would be so nice if something would make sense for a change” (Alice, in ‘Alice in Wonderland’)
- “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there” (White Queen, in ‘Through the Looking Glass’)
- “It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards” (White Queen, in ‘Through the Looking Glass’)
- “No one ever got a pig fat by weighing it” (Andrew Templeman, Cabinet Office)
What They Say
Peter is a highly-valued member of Partners in Training’s team. As an integral part of this team, Peter travels globally delivering training to health care practitioners and academics. One of Peter’s key attributes as a trainer is his ability to combine sound pedagogical practice with an affiliative style of facilitation to ensure learning is productive, engaging, and driven by the training recipients.
Partners in Training
I have worked with Peter on a number of projects relating to training and coaching. Peter approaches every commission in a very thorough manner, wanting to ensure that the service provided meets the needs of the client as closely as possible. The last project we worked on, a few months ago, related to performance management training for bank staff using actors in role play situations. Peter demonstrated his ability to de-brief the scenarios effectively by using excellent questioning skills, together with his breadth of management and training experience when explaining relevant techniques and models. He is calm and clearly spoken in large group scenarios and has a strong reputation for his excellent summarising of learning points from events such as CIPD conferences.
“Peter is a consummate pro, relaxed yet highly professional. He builds strong relationships and has the ability to quickly get to the nub of an issue.
Peter has a unique and valuable quality – he makes those with him feel valued, confident and ready to tackle whatever challenges they are facing.”
Coach, and Principal of I Want A Change
“When taking up my first Chief Executive position, I felt that I needed support to develop my leadership skills. Peter Lumley’s coaching was superb. He helped me to explore what kind of leader I was, and gave me the confidence to apply my skills.
He helped me to cut through the complexity of leadership and enabled me to recognise my strengths.
I would recommend him to others without hesitation!”
