Liz Banks - Skillstudio

Do you want to:

  • Earn a reputation for getting teams working?
  • Spot different personality types fast?
  • Adapt to others to get people engaged?

And would you like to go beyond the role of ‘specialist’ and become recognised in your firm as a great ‘people person’?

High Performing Teams

High Performing Teams is our in-house workshop designed for for people in middle and senior management who need to move from ‘expert’ to ‘adaptive’ to engage others and influence them positively.
