"Turning Factor have worked successfully with PPG on a number of assignments over the past 3 years. The main focus of this work has been the delivery of a programme called ‘Unlock Your Potential.’ This 2 day programme focuses on helping managers understand the difference between leadership and management, how to build trust and how to be more creative in their thinking and leadership.
This programme has been hugely beneficial and was expanded in 2012 to cover more of the UK business units, and now we run 2 sessions per year, putting 20 managers through the programme."

"We completed 121’s with each Sales Manager and presented the overall summary in the report which was the foundation to develop the programme which was then presented over 2 days and reviewed a month later.
The immediate feedback was that this was ‘the best training that was ever received’ and also that they found the tutors respectful of their achievements and also knowledgeable in their field to be able to fully associate the learning in a real life situation."

"What is really important is that all our customers receive the highest level of service and experience throughout all my businesses. I know that to achieve a continuous high quality customer experience our people also need development.
We chose to work with Turning Factor to assist in the development of my management team and staff and I have been impressed by their delivery. They are creative in their thinking and approach and are 100% focussed on making sure they deliver what we want and need."

"As a result of the work completed with our Coach we have revised our Business Plan, and have a clear understanding of where we want to get to and why.
We have also completed a big piece of work with regard to the design and implementation of our Company Values. To enable these to be embedded within Warren Services, our Coach facilitated workshops with our Management Team to design and implement Standards which will ensure that the Values are adopted effectively throughout the business."
Chairman, Warren Services
"HJ Heinz has a strong commitment towards developing its leadership capabilities at all levels, and to this end, we have been working in partnership with Turning Factor on developing key members of the senior leadership team.
Coaching has helped me understand the role of a strategic leader, and has helped me manage the transition from ‘Functional Management’. Moreover, it has helped me provide clarity and strategic direction to the senior leadership team at site in order that they better understand their priorities as functional leaders."
General Manager, Heinz
"I Just wanted to say thanks for everything on the Growing Future Talent programme, it was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my working career, I learnt so many helpful things about communication and the correct way with dealing with staff and also learnt so much about myself too. Those motivational maps really enlightened a lot about what’s motivating me and how I’m currently feeling which was a real eye opener.
Really helpful stuff, Jim was a great tutor too!"
Operations Manager, Mayday
"I worked with Turning Factor as a client in my previous role as HR Manager for a local small business. Turning Factor helped train all our newly promoted managers on the Lift programme which gave them not only significant development as a manager but also a formal qualification through ILM. The feedback from the staff who attended was fantastic. They took a lot from the programme and it helped them to develop as managers, they brought fresh ideas back into the company which they went on to develop with staff. Working with peers from other organisations was a great way to help them develop and I could not recommend the programme highly enough.
I worked directly with Philip to develop a bespoke senior management development programme. Philips skills and knowledge were invaluable in helping to shape the course of the programme to get the best out of it for the company and staff involved. The flexibility allowed us to review and update sessions based on where the previous session had taken us and enabled us to get the best out of our time with Turning Factor. I look forward to working with Philip and the team in the future and would highly recommend speaking with the team to discuss your company’s training needs. "

"Leadership in Action course – bespoke leadership team training programme
Turning Factor have once again accelerated our growth as a business. Over 6 months Alex and his colleagues have guided our leadership team through a significant change and have provided us with the knowledge and tools we need to lead the business.
Alex worked closely with us to develop a programme that addressed our specific challenges and needs. This has adapted throughout the programme, even live during sessions! Their agility is impressive and adds to the already valuable content they deliver.
Everyone we have interacted with at Turning Factor has a fantastic personality and training style. Every session gets us thinking and debating. We have already started to implement our learning which is increasing staff motivation, productivity, and engagement with our strategy. Looking forward to the future we will certainly continue to work with Turning Factor to keep us in check and pushing our boundaries.
It has been a fantastic experience – its been fun, challenging, eye-opening, and brutally honest at times. This is exactly what we needed to establish the leadership team. Turning Factor are now our go to organisation for developing our people.

"‘’Working with Turning Factor to deliver our Senior Leadership Programme was a great experience. We had various needs which we wanted to address with training, and Turning Factor worked this into a bespoke programme for us. The programme was delivered with energy and most importantly in a practical and engaging way which meant participants could take the learning away and straight away put it into practice. We were so impressed that we extended the programme to other levels of management, which has now resulted in over 170 of our senior leaders and managers being trained.
We would highly recommend Turning Factor as a delivery partner.’’
CEO of BUUK Infrastructure
