Learning and Development

Learning and Development

At Kirsty Craig Associates we understand that not many SMEs have a dedicated Learning and Development (L&D) professional, this is typically seen in bigger companies, yet L&D is one of the key elements of engagement it’s what helps retain your people and they grow with you.  Usually, L&D tends to be delivered by someone different to HR as it’s a different skill set and qualification process and really SMEs have to consider harnessing this now in a talent short market.

We have either established programmes for companies to access or we can develop something specifically to meet a defined training need within your business or we can carry out the training needs analysis for you to identify the requirement in the first place.

Management Development Programmes

It’s difficult enough finding the right talent in the first place within a candidate led market, so when you’ve got the right people in place why miss the opportunity to enhance their skills and expertise?

So many People Managers are promoted on the basis of their technical abilities in their day to day job alone, yet we all know that a good one encompasses a leader, coach, trainer and psychiatrist all wrapped up into one.

For those managers who don’t naturally possess the delicate balance of empathy, communication and leadership skills required, all is not lost, learning and development is key.

Training in people management skills and processes is undoubtably important, but this has to be balanced with self-reflection and enhancement of behaviours and competencies to allow that person to fulfil the role of a well-rounded Manager.

Doing so adds tremendous value to your business whilst ensuring you retain your best talent. Our qualified and experienced Trainers and Facilitators have designed a range of management training programmes to equip managers and business owners to lead and manage their team for success.

Courses are delivered in an interactive, workshop format with one to one coaching available to maximise the learning output and experience.

Our portfolio includes established management development programmes and the ability to shape and tailor workshops to meet identified objectives and training needs.
