Enabling Managers & Trainers

to Increase ​Confidence & Competence in Themselves & Others

There are two key roles in your company which if you develop them well will impact on your entire workforce.  Managers and Trainers!

Many MANAGERS have been promoted into the role because they were good at their job.  But this doesn’t mean they know how to manage people instinctively.  My speciality is enabling these new managers to increase confidence & competence in themselves & others resulting in quicker transitions into the role and better results for the business as a whole.

Having people who can help your employees learn and develop is a vital part of growing your business.  From inducting new recruits, to rolling out new ways of working across the entire workforce.  Often TRAINERS are simply employees with a desire to help others learn.  But what if they had someone experienced in Learning & Development they could work with and increase their own skills at the same time as increasing the skill of your workforce?       

Whether your Managers or Trainers are new to the role or been in position for many years, offering them development will increase Confidence & Competence in themselves & others.

Testimonials for Nikie

“ Natalie Rogers - Head of Talent, Learning & Development at GreencoreI first came across Nikie through her quirky and different posts which I’m always compelled to look at further and find myself drawn to. We talked and I described the kind of creative experiments we’re keen to encourage in my team and asked her to share all her secrets! She created a great day packed full of ideas, taught my team how dopamine makes the difference in learning and we left with a shopping list and inspired and reassured that what we were already doing was value add coupled with some ideas to make them even better. From before the day to after she demonstrated how creativity engages and lands learning.”

“Hands up if you think you are creative?' That is a question that usually leads to me putting my hands firmly on the ground! But, after a session with Nikie Forster of Curious Lighthouse, I was thinking completely differently........ Enlightening and motivating, I am now kidding myself I can be a NASA Astronaut, have a new desk buddy called 'Daisy Duck' and am the proud owner of this beautiful lighthouse... Thank you Nikie for such an informative session.”
