Train To Gain coming to an end

If your organisation has between 5 and 249 staff, you may be eligible for a Government grant of £1,000 to spend on leadership & management training, coaching or mentoring.  Bad news is that this scheme will expire on 31 December 2010.

The Train-to-Gain scheme applies to all organizations that:

  • Are private, franchise, public and voluntary bodies.
  • Have between 5 and 249 employees. This is for the whole company, not an individual site.
  • Did not benefit from Leadership and Management grant in the last 12 months.

While the train to gain scheme is applicable to a broad range of coaching, mentoring and training services available to employees in any position within their organization the Leadership and Management section states that:

Train to Gain can help your business:

  • get the essential skills to boost your business performance
  • improve your business efficiency and increase profits
  • help your staff grow in motivation and confidence

To benefit of this service, once checked your eligibility, simply identify a suitable provider for the service you are interested in and then contact the local train-to-gain office.

MaGa Coaching offers a broad range of coaching service to business owners, senior executives and teams.  Please enquire today and check how we can boost your performance: your chance of getting £1000 off your coaching package will expire soon so hurry up!

Workshop for Cambourne Women in Business

Cambourne Women in Business“, a very active networking group based in Cambourne, has recently organised their first business coaching workshop and asked MaGa Coaching to develop bespoke content for them.

Covering a number of key topics revolving around how to best run a business this 3 hours workshop was run by Beatrix Fogler, personal and life coach and Massimo Gaetani, business and executive coach.

The 15 delegates represented a broad range of businesses including Will writing, jewellery design and portrait photography and they all had the opportunity to express their preferences of topics to be discussed. The presentations were then developed with a strong component of interactivity involving each participant and giving them the opportunity of explaining and discussing their particular issues and getting effective help from both the coaches and the other delegates.

Beatrix’s presentation was about:

  • Motivation
  • Time Management

Massimo’s:

  • Planning
  • Marketing
  • Pricing
  • Strategic Positioning

Anthonine Arts-Zetteler, member of  the Cambourne Women in Business Committee and organiser of the event commented

“the workshop gave us some very practical tips about how to manage our businesses more effectively. The feedback we had from all participants was great and we are already planning for the next event”.

Testimonial from D.B.

Testimonial about MCGfBG:

The MCGfBG sessions are valuable in two key ways:

  • the managed peer discussions of business issues quickly develops alternative options which would be hard for an individual to develop on their own;
  • the ability to practice coaching techniques in a facilitated environment hones these skills for use in the work place.

Testimonial from S.O.

Testimonial about MCGfBG:

I have found that sharing ideas, issues and general thoughts to the group has helped solidify my own thinking and that by others asking questions it has brought to light possible actions to take that I hadn’t previously considered.

I have also found it rewarding to be on the other side of this, to dig into an issue that someone else has raised and to see from the outside how that same progress of communicating an idea or issue and the drilling down into that has resulted in further insight.
