Leaders, Business Partners and Organisational Development consultants?
This group coaching / training series gives you skills and knowledge about three pillars of effective organisational development:

  • Building on strengths and competencies
  • Leading effective performance discussions, and
  • Strengthening culture in hybrid or remote organisations


Co-Led by Expert Coaches

Cathy Farlam and Maddy Ashton co-lead the sessions as group coaches; their experience guides the conversation so that the learning comes from the content of the material and from the experience of group members.

Group coaching / training the way it is used by Multiplex is a cross-over between traditional coaching and training. There is definite content and guidance from the coaches but the work is done by all members of the group, sessions allow the participant time to listen, reflect, contribute and integrate the ideas under scrutiny.

The whole programme comprises three modules and each module includes two online sessions.  You can choose to do any, or all of the modules.
