SEPTEMBER – Last JtoM MASTERCLASS of 2017
“Working Smarter Not Harder” – tools and techniques for thriving in challenging times
Over the last couple of years been researching the topic of ‘Working Smarter Not Harder’, the science and study of working (and living) in a more natural, sustainable and excellent way. We have found that people who take part in our ‘working smarter not harder’ development days get a huge amount from it, so we thought it was time to share that research and combine it with some NLP techniques so that our Masterclass family can benefit from it too. You will come away from the day with some really valuable insights into how your brain works and great practical tools that will make a real difference to how work and life feels!
Our final Masterclass of 2017 will be held on October 18th at the Cheltenham Chase hotel.
JULY – META LEADERSHIP NETWORK – great success!
In July we held the second Meta Leadership Network event, nearly 20 leaders from all sectors gathered together to share best practice, tell their truth and help each other with the common obstacles that they all face. The theme was ‘creating the capacity to lead’ and centred around how as leaders they can work in a smarter way that makes the most of their own capacity. It was a great success with amazing feedback from participants on the day. It’s proving to be a very powerful, popular and useful network for those that attend, and so we’d like to invite you to join us, just get in touch for more details.
META CUSTOMER – BDHT ANNOUNCED NUMBER 1 COMPANY in “GREAT PLACES TO WORK”
There are certain organisations that we have worked with over the years that we are very fond of. One such is BDHT (Bromsgrove District Housing Trust) which we worked with extensively in 2014/15 when they were in the Sunday Times Top 100 places to work competition where they reached number 4 and have continued to work with them ever since. Just recently BDHT won the amazing accolade of being NUMBER 1 in the “GREAT PLACES TO WORK” competition. There are very few organisations that truly live their values and want to continuously improve themselves. BDHT has created a culture of excellence that enables them to excel even in these challenging times in the Housing Sector – we wish to congratulate them for this well deserved award!
We asked BDHT Chief Executive Mike Brown if he’d put a few words together on camera about the “Journey to Excellence” that we did in his organisation in 2014/2015 and what its lasting legacy has been. We are very proud of the work we have done with BDHT over the years if you’d like to get a feel for what Meta can do for you, then please do take a moment to watch the video.
