In their recent research the CIPD have found that when asked how they plan to offset the 0.5 per cent charge on payrolls above £3million nearly one third of employers said they plan to do so by adapting existing training programmes so they can be accredited as apprenticeships.
We get many enquiries asking us for team building programmes and events. However after questioning and gaining an understanding of what they exactly require it becomes clear that often people are not after a team building programme at all. What they need is team development with the outcome of improved team working and productivity.
If you book a team building event whether it be a reward for the staff or a means of improving the performance of your staff then we’ll give you an iPad Mini free of charge! A great team building gift to you for booking with us. So if you had in mind booking something very soon then this may be the catalyst you need whether it be a fun event or a developmental team building course give us a call!
There are so many different interpretations of coaching – some think of it in relation to sports, others think it is another management fad and some think it is just another form of training. Different interpretations create confusion and this can and has led to a degree of misperception. Also, some organisations will have their own view of what coaching means to them and this can just add to the confusion.
It’s always pleasing when you receive good feedback from learners who’ve attended our courses but even more so when every learner is of the same opinion. In addition it’s rewarding when those learners have actually ‘bought into’ our unique approach to training, been receptive to our approach, seen the benefit and can apply that learning in the workplace. The following feedback was received from those who attended our recent IOSH Managing Safely Course
Call of the Wild are pleased to announce we have have been named one of the best companies in the UK for leadership and management courses in the ‘Corporate Vision‘ 2015 UK Corporate Excellence Awards.

In 2007 Chade-Meng Tan – Google employee #107 — launched Google’s meditation programme. The programme currently teaches 2,000 Googlers per year to meditate in order to become better leaders. Today, leading companies like Blackrock, Aetna, Ford Motor and Goldman Sachs conduct mindfulness classes for thousands of their leaders.
What is causing this shift to mindful leadership? In the stress-filled 24/7 world in which we live, leaders of all organizations need the opportunity for a “time out” period. It is their opportunity to relax, breathe deeply, de-stress and gain clarity about their work and the decisions they are facing.
