Now that the election’s been and gone do you, by any chance, have some new Elected Members in need of training? If so, we’re here to help!
We have a very successful programme on ‘Chairing meetings skills for Elected members’ or we can design any number of programmes specifically for you, to meet the particular requirements of your new Elected Members.
We can also run training for your staff on working within a political environment. Again, we have a very successful programme on ‘Working with Elected Members’ but we can also run more general programmes on working within a political environment. This can be done at a less senior level across the board or just for one area (such as social care) where there’s a greater likelihood of staff having to deal with Elected Members directly. Programmes can be delivered in a variety of formats – full day, half-day, bite-sized, etc.
We can also deliver training or coaching on these subjects on a small group or one-to-one basis, if required. See what a recent District Council client said of the session we organised for her:
The (very) tailored course was great. Amanda was excellent throughout the session and I am particularly grateful to her for the time she took to fully understand the issues I was hoping to address and also the outcomes I was hoping to achieve.
The Chairman of the Council found the session very useful indeed and I have witnessed first-hand the impact it has had on her. We have our first Full Council meeting tomorrow evening and we are both optimistic that it will be a much improved meeting!
