Managing the People Aspects of Change
"Bridget was highly recommended to me by another organisation and when the time arose to use her services I could not have been more pleased. Part of our organisation was going through a restructure, so with Bridget's expertise we were able to offer external support to our employees and this service was used by a number of them. To also assist myself and a couple of managers, I sought Bridget's expertise to run a workshop on "Managing the People Aspects of Change". This was presented professionally but flexible to those attending." Paula Ridge, (formerly Human Resources Coordinator, South Australian Cricket Association)
"I found Bridget to be a true professional. In her pre-workshop briefings, in her delivery and in her post workshop follow-up she impressed everyone with her attention to detail, her understanding of the client's needs, her thorough approach and her personable, capable manner. I recommend Bridget to you without hesitation." Adrian Skull (formerly OD Manager, Adelaide City Council, now at City of Marion)
Attracting and Retaining Talent Masterclass
"The Attracting and Retaining Talent Masterclass was probably the best one day training course I have attended in the last ten years. Bridget's easy-going presentation style enabled plenty of interaction amongst the attendees and we were able to share our experiences in trying to attract and retain staff. The Masterclass was extremely informative and provided a very useful, practical and appropriate model for the development of a Workforce Attraction and Retention Plan. I have already used the model to develop a strategic plan for a specific work group. I wish more training courses were as good as the Masterclass!" John Windsor, Human Resource Manager, SA Dental Service
“Well done, interactive, involving, you kept us engaged. You are a gifted teacher" from a participant on our Interview Skills for Small Business Owners workshop
The Managers Role In Retention™
"Well done Bridget on another riveting and inspiring workshop! The Managers Role in Retention is a brilliant opportunity to further understand the importance of attracting and retaining talent, particularly with the prediction of staff shortages over the next few decades. This workshop encourages you to think laterally and consider various scenarios and strategies. Although we all endeavour to retain our staff, this workshop is a reminder that we can always do it better..." Dee Kazek-Hoad, Human Resources Manager, d'Arenberg Pty Ltd
"The Performance Conversations and Feedback session run by Bridget was extremely useful. Having only managed staff for a few years, I was keen to extend my thinking about managing performance. The day reiterated to me the importance of continuous feedback and communication. The workshop assisted me to develop some strategies to ensure that this topic stayed on my agenda and becomes part of my everyday practice with staff. The workshop allowed us to also share some of our more frustrating performance management issues, and work through these. It was a great exercise to see how different people approach different situations and what may be the consequence of various approaches. Bridget lead the group well, allowing the group to drive some discussions, but bring it back in line when needed. The workshop has motivated me and given me more direction in my supervisory role with my staff." Jane Rajkowski, Regional Community Care Manager - Southern Region
Masonic Homes Incorporated
Managing Pressure at Work
"Team Dynamics was an area of concern within our business. With HR Development at Work's input, and hands on workshop, we were able to isolate some of the major breakdowns and areas of communication, probe these areas in more detail and then actively work on the repair process. Today, we're a better company for this....." Peter Whalley, Managing Director, Sybiz Software.
"The best thing was... having the opportunity to voice my opinions in a safe environment." Christine Morris (formerly HR Consultant, DAIS)
"The best thing about this (Situational Leadership) workshop for me was the realisation that style relates to task rather than individual – can use different styles for the same person. As a result I am going to review my relationships with my team, particularly expectations, and fellow party's performance with their team." Bruce Spangler, CEO, Bentleys MRI
