People Development

Enabling people, leaders, teams and organisations to perform at their best.

We help your people thrive within your organisation, in the context of an ever-changing and often complex landscape.

We have a knack for helping organisations and their people to create a significant and sustainable positive shift where it may otherwise seem extremely challenging or even ‘impossible.’

We’re proud to be award-nominated for our development work but even prouder of what we achieve in true collaboration with our clients.

Shall we see what we can achieve together?

Our team and how we work

  • Our diverse team are experts in shifting mindset and behaviour. And, importantly, we rigorously assess and hand-pick each of them for style, credentials and experience.

  • This means you can always expect the highest quality of programme that’s built around your outcomes and needs, designed and delivered with an authentic human touch and tailored to your language.

  • Our methods are based in the rigour of tried-and-tested human science, combined with a big dollop of what it really takes to shift mindset and behaviour in the real world.

  • We’re experts in our world, you’re expert in yours. Together, we blend our expertise and talents to deliver development when, how and with whom it makes the biggest impact.

"I have worked in HR for over twenty years and this was the only time I was able to categorically show a return on investment for a development programme. The difference in behaviour in our leadership team is astonishing and the quality of their output has improved. We're thrilled with the fundamental changes you've made to our business."

“In seven years at SAS, I've never seen such engagement, enthusiasm and commitment from our executive team for learning and development. This has been achieved through the relationship that you developed with each of them. The Connor INSPIRED Performance programme gave our most senior people a fantastic experience in a short space of time. I look forward to seeing them go from strength to strength by creating and embedding a high performance culture."

"This is the best money I've spent. The whole team now act in a controlled, confident manner with visitors to the Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace."

“I can honestly say this is one of the best courses I have ever been on."

“We chose Connor because we felt their values most closely matched ours, they listened to what we wanted and quickly got to grips with our distinctive culture.”

“The team is much more aware of their diversity, and how to embrace the strength that brings. For me, Connor has absolutely hit the spot.”
