Think investing in people is expensive?
Personal development breaks the bank?
Time and again it has been shown that a business investing in developing the management and communication skills of it's people, or an individual investing in their own soft skills for personal development, is consistently about the best form of investment we can make. The returns on the investment blow others out of the water. Despite this, although our intentions remain good, we just don't get around to making the commitment needed.
The problem is that we are all very busy people. Businesses run lean and mean. Finding the time for personal development, or developing the communication skills of your team can be a real challenge. The cost of attending traditional training workshops can seem prohibitive, especially once you have factored in the cost of travel and accommodation. Taking large chunks of time away from the normal working day can be very disruptive.
The management learning academy from RHL Associates provides a simple, cost and time effective solution to this problem. For a small monthly fee you can access a growing range of soft skills training and personal development opportunities. Build skills and abilities at a time, location and pace that suits you. You are able to use the material as often as you like. If you want a quick refresher before tackling a specific issue or challenge - no problem.
Here's the best bit. As the range of materials available continues to grow and develop, you pay nothing more than your original subscription rate. Subscription rates will inevitably rise for new subscribers, yet if you remain subscribed your rate is fixed, even though your learning continues to grow..
The current offer of £12.00 per month is a fantastic offer and won't last for long. Enroll now and lock in that rate. As the academy learning resources increase and develop, you get even greater value.
The trend for online learning is growing rapidly, and is a trend that is likely to continue. The ability to learn at your own pace and to be in control of the time and location is appealing for both individual learners and businesses alike. Furthermore, you don't have to sit through hours of content, taking notes and collecting handouts. You can access your learning in small chunks (great for brain based learning and retention). You can go back to the material as often as you like. It's almost like having your own personal coach on hand whenever you need them. Technology improvements will continue to drive how people learn, and the opportunities to make online learning increasingly interactive will continue to evolve further. It is already easy to make these courses part of a more blended solution, combining them with small group sessions, personal coaching and more traditional face to face workshops as appropriate.
The Academy is an opportunity to get in at the ground level for the next exciting phase of development. The existing courses already have over 2800+ satisfied individual learners enrolled on other platforms, but the time is right to provide a more bespoke and personal service that will build into a vibrant learning community.
Hello there - thanks for looking at my courses.
You're probably wondering why on earth you should work with me through my online courses, or possibly more directly.
Well, I have been a learning and development professional for over 30 years now. In that time I have worked with a very wide range of organisations and people from all walks of life, and many different countries and backgrounds.
My focus is on helping people learn skills, techniques and behaviours that will help them in their everyday lives. That might be in business and their professional lives or more personal development outside of work. What matters to me is that the learning is not simply just theoretical, but practically applicable. Knowing stuff is good, but we grow when we learn to actually apply that knowledge. That's where we add value.
In support of this approach, I have a lot of experience to back it up. I have for 20 years held senior management positions in both public and private sector organisations. I have also run my own consultancy and people development businesses for almost 18 years working with many global brands in a variety of business sectors, family businesses, business start ups and individuals seeking to develop their own skills and abilities.
With all this experience and expertise I have come to realize that a great deal of successful business and people management comes down to effective communication. In theory this appears straight forward, yet the reality is frequently much more challenging. This challenge is summed up by one of my favorite quotes;
'the single biggest problem with communication is the illusion it is taking place'
George Bernard Shaw.
When I'm asked about what I do, I have been known to describe myself as an interpreter, and when asked about which languages I say English to English. It often raises a smile as people realize what I mean by that.
