Time is precious. How often have you sat in a training session thinking about all the other things you could be doing?
I have over 15 years' experience working with groups within the health service and am passionate about delivering training that is not only relevant but that will mentally stimulate you to do or feel something different. This is backed up by feedback received from delegates over many years. You can see what others within the health service think about i4 Training by clicking on this link to testimonials.
As I specialise in working within the health service, I have a unique understanding about what is expected from health care professionals, and the pressures that they are currently under. This innovative approach tailors the training solutions to better engage staff by delivering more transferable skills. It is a great way to lift staff morale.
Many teams have found it extremely useful to bring in someone "external" into the organisation to facilitate team development and training. The facilitator however, must have an understanding of the challenges within the organisation and also a strict moral code.
Rather than offer an "off the shelf" or "one size fits all" training package, I design training and team development agendas specifically around peoples' objectives and the time available.
'I have had experience now of Jo doing excellent work with a number of different mental health teams throughout Ireland, at different stages of development and with different challenges. Her sessions are invariably managed expertly and there are always positive outcomes from the process. I recommend Jo's service to all mental health services'.

Because of my extensive experience of working with groups within the health service, I am aware of some of the pressures people are currently under and of the challenges they face. It can be very difficult to raise spirits and focus people on what they can control in a climate of cut backs and increasing demands.
By engaging staff in, for example, a team development session where they are integral to the prioritising of issues and drafting of the team action plan, people can feel involved. This often "plants the seeds" that their opinion and experience matters, this in turn leads to increased staff engagement.
Feedback from the sessions I have delivered highlight that, by providing a valuable training event, staff feel more empowered and positive about their roles within the organisation.
" The team development sessions gave us a different perspective, new energy, motivation and enthusiasm..things that are hard to achieve in the current climate."
