Learning and Training

Knowledge transfer and action learning

We firmly believe that it’s better to develop your capabilities rather than build a dependency on us. We put knowledge transfer at the centre of our work.

Ours is a collaborative process, leaving your team with new skills and knowledge to help you and your organisation tackle future projects. We can run action learning sets to support your projects. Our work is done with you, not to you or for you.

Coaching and mentoring for leaders

It is not always easy for organisations to find the time or resource to deliver coaching internally. We provide current and emerging leaders with specialist coaching support - often embedded in a wider project - to focus on their particular needs.

As part of our approach to strategic transformation, we can also provide robust external challenge for your projects in a 'non-executive' role, identifying how and where projects get stuck and helping leaders to reflect on how they can have the most positive impact on the organisation's culture.

Bespoke training

If you prefer our training to be tailored, we can develop a training package to suit your organisation and the challenges it faces now, whether focused on strategic transformation, commissioning, sourcing or organisational culture and behaviour.

We can help you to establish methodologies and frameworks and provide you with industry-standard tools and techniques, tailored to make them practical and free from unnecessary bureaucracy.

The specialist and technical skills that Activist brought to the table, working with officers of the four councils, resulted in robust and deliverable business case and ultimately a shared service which delivered on both its financial and non-financial benefits.
