I came out of the training with a clear understanding of the difference between overt and covert bullying. One participant said ‘I got everything I need to perform my role more effectively.'

Birmingham City Council

It was a very well facilitated session which gave everyone a chance to talk about how they felt in a safe environment and left everyone feeling positive, closer as a team and energised to move forward.

RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People)

Association of Electoral Administrators

After working in Health & Safety for the last 14 years this course is by far the best behavioural course I have attended. It has opened up my opinion on identifying issues at work.
