Open Space Mentoring in Cheshire

How much time have you historically spent sat in your office, sat in meetings, sat in your car or sat in front of clients? If there is one thing that COVID-19 has taught us, it’s the importance of getting away from the coalface, getting out into the countryside and refreshing your mind and body to gain a new perspective. We are so lucky to have the beautiful Cheshire countryside, on the doorstep of our office where we conduct our open space mentoring. Our two-hour coaching sessions out in the open will give you the chance to explore those challenges, develop your ideas, access high level coaching and improve your fitness.

No stuffy office, no flipcharts or PowerPoints, just the opportunity to set your goals (personal and professional) whilst social distancing. The chance to discuss your options and find the solutions to the challenges that are blocking you at present.

All you need is suitable outdoor gear (including walking boots and waterproofs) and a positive mental attitude. Re-discover the great outdoors and re-connect with what’s important in life and in business.

The session ends with a cappuccino (or drink of your choice) in our office, or out in the garden (weather permitting), whilst we capture agreed actions in your Personal Development Plan to take away and implement. Our mentoring sessions are guaranteed to get you fitter, more focused and able to deliver on your performance intentions with clarity and focus.

“….a fantastic opportunity to look at my challenges from a different perspective and get everything on the table before returning to the office with much greater clarity of thought. Lily has a way of helping you to turn, what seem like complex challenges into simple and very effective actions. I learnt more about myself and improving my leadership style in a few of these sessions than I have in a lifetime – just brilliant!”

The structure of the Effective Managers Programme delivered by Morgan James has helped me to be conscious of my behaviours, given me lots of ideas to take away to implement within my team and the business. I feel much more confident now around making decisions, dealing with difficult conversations and I’ve really become more conscious around my delegation skills, something I need to keep developing as my team and the business grows.

Strategic Leaders should be mandatory for every emerging leader. Under the exceptional tutorage of Lily Newman and her team of highly skilled and devoted associates, the level, diversity and depth of, not just theory, but supervised practical application of all the elements required to be an effective leader is unsurpassed. Over the course duration, you experience a greater sense of self, whilst building a lifelong bond with other leaders on the course from various backgrounds and experiences. The course has transformed our thinking, actions and outcomes, to which much of our future shall be in part determined by what we learnt here today.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Effective Managers Programme with Morgan James Consulting. It was engaging, thought provoking, and has helped me in my management of myself and others. I learnt a lot regarding delegation and dealing with difficult conversations with team members. Being relatively new to managing people, I found the training invaluable.

_Ed Robinson,Associate, Civic Engineers

My work with Lily was truly beneficial giving me time, space, and a brilliant coach, to help me reflect on what was important in my life and work. Lily pushed me to consider issues which were uncomfortable at times but which I needed to address – and to reflect on my skills and talents and how I was applying them. Overall, it has a great experience.

JDA have been fortunate enough to be involved in one of Morgan James Growth Group for the last 12 months – it has been transformational. Whilst a change of mindset is required to open up to a group of people outside of your business, once there the sessions become hugely beneficial not only to me as a Director but to the company as a whole. Rarely are you held to account in such a supportive and positive way but with an excellent chair in Lily herself. The sessions combine the best practice of some key note speakers with the open and inclusive personal sessions that set the tone for JDA’s future growth.

I have worked with Lily for 5 years following the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Growth Programme, where Lily was one of the executive associates delivering the leadership elements of the course. Following the brilliant programme, a handful of business owners wanted to continue our development and hold ourselves accountable to the plans we’d put in place. Lily developed and delivers a Growth Springboard Group which has been the perfect vehicle in which we continue our development as business leaders, in an open, trusting and challenging environment – it provides the environment in which you can push yourselves with respected peers and an even better coach. Without this group, I have no doubt at all, urbanbubble would not succeeded in growing its revenue base X 10 and becoming a national provider in what we do.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed yesterday’s session. This was a real ‘gestalt moment’ of a day for me yesterday. Peter’s landing of his session on corporate governance was absolutely spot on. The perfect balance of education and inspiration. Elizabeth’s session on Emotional Intelligence was equally fabulous and has already helped me today. The perceptual positioning exercise was timely and invaluable and has already given me success with a member of my team today! Thank you to you two wonderful ladies (Elizabeth and Lily) and your fantastic team. I’m thrilled to be learning from you as I move through this stage of my professional journey.

_Diana MacCarthy,Director, Social

I just want to thank you wholeheartedly for the support you’ve given me over the past 9 months. I really feel like I have a much rounder understanding of who I am as a leader and have learnt so many techniques for improving my ability to consider and involve others. You have played an instrumental part in supporting me through a particularly challenging time and have helped me to develop a level of resilience I never thought possible. I genuinely believe my sessions with you have played a huge part in getting me through one of the toughest experiences in my career. You have such an ability to re-focus and help me to step outside the situation and see things so much more clearly. Lily, you truly are a wonderful coach and human being!

_Senior Manager,Innovative Alliance

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Lily as part of the syllabus of the Goldman Sachs 10KSB course covering Leadership, People and Growth.  The tools, guidance and insight she provided changed my game and improved my skills in these areas no-end, it has also helped develop the skills of other people within our business. It has given us absolute clarity on what we needed to do to build our business around our people and given us the ability to grow the great culture we had even further. From the very start I just felt that Lily was genuine, her style is truly engaging and her techniques and style keep you engaged and smiling throughout.

I graduated from her Strategic Leaders Programme last year and have absolutely loved every second of it. It’s definitely provided me with exactly what I needed - the perfect balance between support and challenge. The thing that makes this course stand out from the rest is everything is geared towards the practical application of the leadership learning back into your business. As a result, we’ve re-branded, re-structured and have a new strategy that has underpinned our growth and success over the past 18 months. If you’re considering investing in this course I would say ‘do it!’ ... I know it’s an investment you won’t regret.
