It was fantastic to have Jessica come in and train our team. The course was highly appropriate for our support centre and I believe each individual benefited from the training provided. Jessica did a fantastic job of engaging each of the staff members and had each of them contribute to the day. She tailored the training to our specific requirements and worked on the fly where needed to get the most out of our team. Ryan has done a great job to sort through any concerns or initial reservations that I had in regards to training and helped pick the right course for our team. Overall a really great experience and I will be recommending follow up courses to my management team in future.

Holcim
Fantastic Trainer - look forward to her presenting other courses that I will be invited to. The course reminded me to apply my customer skills so that customers can get 100% satisfaction.
Holcim
One of the most beneficial courses i have ever attended. Anne was very helpful and professional. She is worth more money.
Holcim
I would just like to say that the course was a lot of fun and certainly gave insight to things I had not been aware of before even though I have spent many years in Customer Service. Thanks for a great experience.
Metcash
Having been to many seminars and courses over the years, it was refreshing to have an overview of the experiences I have gained. I guess the most useful part of the course was the "up-to-date" customer greetings face to face and over the phone. Time change I guess. I enjoyed the interaction with my fellow workers and the chance to have my own input.
R&S Trading
I found that team work was really helpful and talking bout what everyone else has experienced and how to deal with it.
Clockwork
The presentation was very professional & the subject is a big part of our day to day life dealing with clients, fellow workers & family/friends.

Speaker was great! very funny and made it a bit more fun! :)

Anne was great - very engaging - I felt that I can use the tools she has given me.
Dept. of Sustainability Environment Water Population and Community
Trish did a fantastic job with our slightly dysfunctional group. Her background knowledge on neurology and the way the brain works in terms of 'being present' and 'above the line' was GREAT! To be honest I thought this course was going to be dull and bland but experienced the complete opposite, would recommend a training session with Trish anytime!
Armada Solutions
Trisha delivered the session in a great way, I was impressed with her knowledge and I believe we gained good value out of the exercise.
Armada Solutions
Love the way the course was set out very fun and friendly.
Department of Health
I though Ann was absolutely FANTASTIC. Very friendly, outgoing and fun without being unprofessional. Easy to listen to and understand - you have a great trainer on your hands!
The Sound Alliance
Thank-you Simon. The day left me feeling positive and refreshed ready to go forward with many new and revamped ideas.
Almax Aluminium
I was a bit skeptical about this, as I usually am with these sort of things. But I found it to be a really enjoyable & easy experience, and I feel that everyone in the course not just myself could take a lot away from it.

3. Physical Products - visual reminders to keep key concepts alive

Many of the 'aha' moments in courses can come from the increased awareness of ourselves and our colleagues, these come through the REACH Profiles that is integrated into many of our courses.

The insights lead us to better recognise our tendencies and strengths, understand how to be more mindful of adapting to the needs and preferences of our team and our customers.

The insights are put into practice by appreciating the benefits of our diversity and either learning to adapt or implementing a strengths-based management approach.

We have a great range of high quality products that can keep these impactful moments top of mind back in the workplace.

REACH to my Team
Visualizer / Reminder

The REACH Team Visualizer/Reminder can be used in multiple ways in both training and in the office. When displayed in a high traffic area REACH will be kept top of mind. Below are guidelines for use of the REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder which is also in downloadable format.

The REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder comes in two sizes of A0 841 x 1189 mm and A1 594 x 841 mm and is made from a sturdy 5mm corflute.

REACH to my Team Visualizer / Reminder guidelines for use

  • For this activity the simplest way to plot all participants on the REACH Grid is by generating TEAM Insights Report from the REACH Ecosystem which will give the position of everyone participating.
  • Place the REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder on a flat surface, preferably a wall, where it is clearly visible. Ask participants to mark their REACH position on the grid with a sticky dot. Recommend that participants put their initials on the sticky dot so they can easily locate themselves later. Each person’s REACH can revealed one at a time in a group activity. This allows for everyone to identify the dynamic that they will have with each other. Are they in the same quadrant or are the polar opposites? How do they "REACH" each other?
  • When you construct this activity with participants who have not seen their REACH score, they begin to develop a sense of self-awareness and their blind spots as well as of those around them.
  • The REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder is a powerful way to keep Team Dynamics and REACH alive. It can be revisited on a regular basis, people can be added, removed or moved by simply adding, removing or moving dots.

Keep it Alive
REACH Cubes

REACH Cubes are designed to build empathy and grow an appreciation for thinking differently. They encourage productive and positive interactions in the workplace, workshop or personal development sessions. They can be used in any creative way to grow REACH and below we have provided two recommended activities for use. The REACH Cubes pack comes with 4 REACH Cubes one representing each REACH Quadrant. Each REACH Cube is 7.5 cm squared and are made from durable EVA Foam.

Keep it Alive REACH Cubes Activity 1 – Thinking Outside the Square

When people are participating in activities during REACH workshops, training or personal development sessions provide each participant with a REACH Cube and ask them to complete the activity or interaction Thinking and Behaving based on what REACH Cube was provided to them.

Are they the Advisor focused on detail and doing?

or a Coach focused on People and Action?

This brings a whole new level of empathy building and appreciation for the strength of thinking differently.

Keep it Alive REACH Cubes Activity 2 – Grow Your REACH in your space

After REACH has been introduced using the REACH Training continue to keep REACH alive in the workplace by providing each person with a set of 4 REACH cubes to take back to their work space.

Personal REACH and the REACH of their colleagues can be grown by using these cubes on a regular basis with these great ideas:

The Desk Stack:

Stack your REACH Cubes on your desk and on top of the stack place the cube that is reflecting your current REACH zone. Ensure that you have the side that says “Thanks for dropping by, right now I am in my __________ quadrant” facing outward so those approaching your work space know how you are feeling and acting at that current time. This is designed to help those around you recognise different behaviours/responses they may or may not receive from you based on the situation and REACH zone.

Think Before I Act:

Use your REACH Cubes to be mindful of your interactions with others. Whilst interacting use the cubes to review your behaviours and actions. Take up the cube of the quadrant you currently feel you are in and review these sides: Think before I act: Is this what I need to be right now? Flip the cube over to the side of the profile overview and think about the style in which you are Communicating, Conflict-handling, Delegating etc. Is this what you need to be to REACH the person you are interacting with? If not find the REACH Cube that best suits the situation and maximises your REACH with that person and use the profile overview to help guide your interaction.

Learn to REACH
Labels

Learn to REACH Labels are a great low-cost substitute for the REACH Caps or REACH Cubes or the more physically interactive REACH Floor Mat. They work well in small and large team activities and can be used as a quick way to identify how others act and think through a different quadrant that is not theirs. They can learn to appreciate the different communication, conflict handling, delegating, planning and learning styles of others and through this increase their REACH.

The REACH Labels are made of a high quality fabric sticky labels that are designed to last all day training sessions.

These work well after training when stuck to people’s monitors or workstations.
