  One-to-one training, coaching and mentoring

Sometimes a need is so specific, that a one-to-one solution is required.  ContentETC can offer a highly effective, incredibly focused resource, for managers and team members alike, for when the objective is totally individual, time is limited and budgets are tight.

At the start, the client and ContentETC consultant will agree and define the goals that need to be achieved.  These can be anything from understanding the digital landscape or the personal use of social media; to learning to manage a difficult member of staff or introducing new working practices.

A strategy is created to achieve and implement these goals, mapping the most effective routes for fulfilling them, and exploring all the hurdles that may get in the way.  The coach consultant is joint custodian of this vision with the client, and provides mentoring, support and on-going encouragement.  At the end of each session, they will outline suggested actions to be taken back in to the workplace and these are then reviewed at the following session.

We can deliver this one-to-one consultancy either face-to-face; via an online training, meeting and conferencing system; over the telephone; via email; or a combination of these strategies.  However it is delivered, the delegate will get maximum benefit in a concentrated period of time.

Please ask us about coaching.

"Nice to hear from you - since the course things have been running a lot better...We had two training sessions in the week following the course.  Then at the end of the last issue, we sat down and went through the work he'd done for the issue.  I also set up a training session with him with our production editor, to show him the editorial process and what happens to his words once they are picked up by the art desk.  We're reviewing his work on a monthly basis with a view to him having control of the section the issue after next.  So far it's working well - and I'm managing to find time to do my own work as well."

  Training clinics

A typical ContentETC Training clinic is a "drop-in" session hosted by an expert trainer, organised into brief, intense, one-to-one sessions with selected participants.

We look at the specific issues facing each person, so they benefit from immensely valuable coaching and expert input.

Our Digital clinics are particularly popular, providing one-hour consultancy slots for anyone to attend who's facing a specific content problem, whether they're journalists, editors, managers, creatives or production executives.

"I just wanted to write and let you know that the clinic I did with Becky really helped improve our web figures.  Our unique users went up by around 3,000 in one month while page impressions increased by 25,000.  I felt inspired that I could really make a difference to the website, despite our limited design template.  Many thanks to Becky and the HR team for organising such a good training course!"
