Corporate Jigsaw – introducing new employees to your organisation
When new employees join your organisation, how can you get them off to a running start. Corporate Jigsaw aims to do just that. By giving them a set of cards, a group of questions, and a quest to find answers, new recruits are encouraged to complete the “jigsaw”. As they visit different parts of the organisation, they acquire pieces of the “jigsaw” and once complete have a fuller picture of their new organisation.
Corporate Jigsaw addresses the fact that new employees lack an understanding of the culture and working style of the organisation that they have just joined. This normally takes time to acquire and can hinder the integration of the individual into the team and may destabilise the team shifting it back into “storming” mode. The programme is designed to minimise this transition allowing the team to move as quickly as possible to “norming”. The programme will also minimise the discomfort of the new employee by integrating them into the organisation as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Many organisations are based upon the value and vision of a single person (who is also often the founder). However as a organisation grows, the ability of the leader/founder to continue to have his or her values and vision both understood and lived by the employees, is put under ever increasing strain.
The Corporate Jigsaw programme, therefore, is both a powerful and enjoyable method of continually refreshing all employees with the core values and aims of the leader/founder of the organisation. It provides an original, interactive and dynamic method of providing the correct messages to new employees, so that they can optimise their contribution to the prosperity of the organisation regardless of their role and level/position.

Improve the Performance of your Business with Music
Would your business benefit from better communication between your team members and departments? Could the performance of some of your staff members be improved? Would a burst of creative ideas and solutions help to streamline the way that you work?
If you are interested in developing any of these capabilities then we have a very fun and engaging process to offer. We bring teams together in a real, working recording studio and challenge them to write, perform and record a team song in just four hours. During this very challenging task we give regular feedback and advice on these three capabilities;
· Communication – how well do your team members share information and work together?
· Performance – could you be working faster and smarter?
· Creativity – Do you really know who the creative people are and how to get the best out of them?
Ready, Steady, Record is an opportunity for teams to get together to create their own piece of music and have it recorded in a studio on to CD or MP3 format. You don’t have to be musical to create a brilliant track, and by using each others strengths you can create new music.
See more details on our website and listen to what can be achieved in just 4 hours!

Don’t Wish for Fewer Problems. Wish for More Skills!
How often do you wish that you had fewer problems? We all do at some point. But supposing we wished for more skills to deal with those problems instead?
A problem is an issue if we don’t have the resources to deal with it. Whilst many issues are not of our own making, nevertheless knowing that you have the resources to deal with whatever is thrown at you can turn a nightmare situation into a manageable challenge.
Why is this important for learning and development? Personal and management development can ensure that individuals have the skills they need to deal with difficult situations when they arise. Whether it is dealing with people, budgets, projects, or planning, knowing what to do, who to ask or where to find out the answer can make all the difference. With jobs no longer for life, all employees must increase their flexibility and transferability.
And for businesses, knowing that their staff are flexible, knowledgeable and competent can make the difference between loss and survival or indeed survival and growth!
Don’t wish for change, change what you wish for.
Don’t wish for less challenge, accept the challenge and wish for more wisdom to both understand and overcome the challenge.
