About the Corporate Coach Group

Management Training Consultants

Celebrating 20 years in business!

Now, more than ever, your organisation needs staff to be productive and happy. We believe that our role as corporate trainers is to help you to achieve your goals. We do this in two ways:

  • By helping you to clarify your thinking in respect to certain issues of work performance, and where necessary,
  • By helping you to improve your techniques

We teach you 'a system of good ideas' and demonstrate a set of practical skills, that you will be able to use immediately. We strive to make our courses highly practical, relevant and applicable to your work context. We confine ourselves to ideas, methods and techniques that are of practical value.

We believe there are a definite set of 'Universal Success Principles' that are applicable to everyone and to every industry. These success principles are universally applicable because, no matter what your product or service, you need to gain the cooperation of other people. In order to succeed, you must succeed with people.

Our training is about improving your performance in six key areas:

  1. Goal setting and achievement
  2. Clear communication
  3. Proper planning and time management
  4. Handling difficult people and conflict situations
  5. Inspiring yourself with a positive mental attitude
  6. Inspiring a positive mental attitude in other people

Over the last 23 years, we have refined our methods of training, to a point of excellence. We believe you will find our courses very interesting, practical and exciting.

John is an experienced former senior police officer (CID) and businessman. John identified the need for managers to be trained on how to gather and present evidence. The evidence might be for use in employment law, personal injury or other important cases. He integrated basic interview/people influencing techniques, into a range of practical courses aimed at providing "real-life" skills, which can be used in daily situations.
