Development Workshops

Working with individuals and groups to:

Build on existing knowledge and skills

Raise self-awareness and self-control

Get clarity and focus on personal strengths

Increase performance and effectiveness

As with all SUCCESSMITH projects, we’ll have some rigorous conversations about what you want to achieve and what success looks like. If making a difference, being fair and creating value-for-money sustainable development activities are important to you, you’ll be pleased to know these directly align with our values too!

“We were particularly impressed with Marie’s ability to put together workshops that were very relevant and informative with just the right level of challenge, along with her engaging delivery style, which encouraged people to really get involved in the learning. The buzz in the room was amazing and everyone came away keen to put what they had learnt into practice.”

Our specific workshop expertise:


Developing Internal Coaches in organisations and facilitating Coaching Skills for Managers workshops


Helping individuals prepare, maintain and build resilience and performance whilst supporting continuous improvement and change.


Recognising how conflict arises, dealing with and de-personalising conflict to build productive relationships.

Emotional Intelligence

Raising self-awareness, self-governance and self-motivation and understanding others better.

Tools we use

Total Strengths Deployment Inventory (Total SDI)

A powerful and effective tool for understanding and influencing the motive that drive behaviours. SDI helps people understand themselves and others better, and that understanding allows them to lead with clarity and empathy, build stronger teams and more effectively navigate conflict.

Myers Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI)

A tried and trusted framework providing the basis for lifelong personal development, team development and improved organisational effectiveness.

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)

A framework for effective perception understanding and communication. This is integrated into everything we do, but not a specific topic offered.


What we do and who we are being at all times – important when we are intentionally striving to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Fully integrated into all our workshops.
