Time to nurture your new talent into the leaders of the future

  • Is there a disconnect between your more experienced employees and your newer, non-experienced members of your teams? 
  • Have you noticed that the performance of your newer members is less than you had expected based on their enthusiasm at interview?
  • Your employees have voiced concern around showing weakness and are not asking for help and support for fear of looking “unprofessional”? 

For many new employees, it's a huge culture shock from learning about a subject to working within that field. 

Cultivate will nurture and empower your newer members of the team, essentially accelerating their work experience and ability to operate at a higher level. 

The value of ACCELERATE is:

Greater Employee Retention

Through supporting personal and career development. 

Because typically new employees channel their energies towards meaningful action; aligning career choices with their values. 

Realising Potential

Helps learners feel settled and supported through a network of coaches and peers reinforcing the carefully sequenced programme of learning modules.

Giving them the ability to realise the potential you see in them.

Accelerated Nurturing

With this 12 month programme, your people will have the support and experience normally gained over many years, to reach optimal performance. 

Decreasing the time it takes for the investment in your people to come to fruition. 

Take your leadership development to the next level with this blended programme with residential and online modules. 

During this time, your employees will be supported through a 12-month programme of ongoing development. Your people will use their learning to experiment with new behaviours back in the workplace in real time. The feedback and support from their Coach and Peer network will enable them to perfect their approach and gain confidence.
