Nice Work Services...
Nice Work brings unique knowledge and experience to the provision of high quality consultancy and training. Our services range from individual coaching and group training courses, to event presentations and organisational stress risk assessments.
Our training programmes utilise psychological, philosophical and, most importantly, practical approaches. They provide delegates with a varied, interesting and enjoyable experience that leads to lasting change – the key aim of any training.
On this page we provide details of some of the areas that we cover and a list of our main training courses.
Few organisations can be unaware of the rapidly growing problem of work-related stress. Recently the Health & Safety Executive has become increasingly active in ensuring that all organisations are in compliance with HSE legislation (see our Information page for more details). Nice Work offers training for employees at all levels. We inform managers of what they have to do and how to do it, and ensure that staff are aware of their responsibilities and how they can make a vital contribution to their organisation's efforts to achieve lower levels of stress and achieve a happier and more constructive working environment.
Traditional approaches to stress management focus on the causes of mental ill-health and how to tackle the symptoms. It's important to be aware of these and to deal them as they arise, and we'll show you how to do that. But this is only half of the story. With our ever-popular training course, "THE 7 KEYS TO BUILDING RESILIENCE FOR LIFE", we show people how to develop their motivation, energy, focus, and self-confidence; how to build their resilience to enhance their lives both inside and outside the workplace.
Studies show that people's intellectual intelligence, and even their skills and experience, have surprisingly little impact on their effectiveness in job performance. A much more important and influential factor is their level of emotional intelligence. So, people's effectiveness actually depends on how well they are able to handle frustration, to be in control of their emotions, and to get along with other people. We reveal the 5 Pillars and 10 Secrets of Emotional Intelligence which enable people to manage and use their emotions intelligently and constructively, to become focused and absorbed in work through self-motivation towards a goal and to respond to challenges with self-confidence and assurance.
Teams are the vital organs of an organisation. For the organisation to stay alive and successful, it is essential that its teams are working effectively and with energy and commitment. People's motivation is inspired not by jobs and tasks but by a vision, an awareness of something they want to achieve and are achieving beyond their day-to-day things-to-do list. They need to know that they are valued and trusted and they need to value and trust others in the team. Nice Work provides inspirational team building programmes that enable groups to achieve all of these crucial elements and to become motivated and highly functional, independent and collaborative teams.
If teams are the vital organs of the organisation then skilled and effective management is its life's-blood. The tasks of management and supervision are complex and sophisticated requiring high levels of communication, decision-making and problem solving skills. If people are promoted to positions of management without being given the time and training to develop these skills then their teams, the organisation, and the managers themselves, suffer as a result. Nice Work's consultants bring their own considerable management experience to training programmes which build on managers' natural qualities and develop their abilities to communicate, delegate, consult, negotiate, evaluate, challenge – in fact all they need to work with their teams with self-belief and authority.
