Corporate Vision Issue 9

44 CORPORATE VISION / Issue 9 2018 , 1808CV03 Notionwas founded in 2000 to ‘change momentum’ in organisations by helping Leaders andManagers develop behaviours that can transform the commercial success of their organisations. Now a global expert in behaviour change, supported by an exceptional head office team inWarwickshire, Notion’s team includes some of the world’s leading Executive Coaches and Trainers. Here, Notion’s Director of Coaching, Laura Ashley-Timms, reveals more about Notion and its innovative solutions. Global Experts in Coaching “At Notion, we deliver first-class Executive Coaching, Business Coaching, Team Coaching, Accredited Coaching Skills Training, CPD and Supervision programmes, and Leader and Manager Development Programmes, to organisations in many sectors across the globe. We are stubbornly single minded in our mission to help our clients create the momentum they need to achieve the success they want. Consequently, all our programmes focus heavily on delivering tangible results. We work to understand exactly what our clients want to achieve - not just what’s on the surface - but the deeper, organisational strategic goals. This essential step helps the organisation to identify the key performance indicators that determine successful progress. Once we’ve identified the ‘what’ we work studiously on the ‘how’ ensuring that the organisation has transparent evidence of the programme’s success. “We can also deliver our development programmes on a modular basis so that our clients get exactly what they want, when they need it. We even deliver some of our programmes virtually without losing any of the results, interactivity or ROI. “We get so excited about ROI - we know that our programmes work, and love proving it. We put measures, evaluations and reports in place to make sure our clients stay on track and see their efforts rewarded in commercial terms.” Laura continues by explaining how Notion’s unique STAR ® model helps their clients, most of whom are household names and feature in the FTSE 500, to develop effective cultures that drive productivity, commercial performance and engagement. “Our unique STAR ® model, designed in conjunction with some of the UK’s most commercially experienced Executive Coaches, is the first coaching model capable of transforming behaviours on a large scale, by changing what occurs ‘in the moment’, in everyday operational settings. Notion is continually developing innovative solutions to meet their clients’ needs. Laura enthusiastically explains more about the revolutionary, scalable, cost effective alternative to their ‘live programmes’. “We work hard to understand and stay ahead of the market, but when we looked at the alternatives, we found that typical e-learning just wasn’t capable of driving behavioural change in the way that our live programmes could. So we designed our own solution - STAR ® Manager - a revolutionary, 100% virtual, blended programme that offers the best of e-learning and live learning in one programme; accessible via any device, at any time, and in any place.” Notion’s mission is to have 100,000 STAR ® Managers by 2020 and one million by 2025 and they have invested the last two years and over £1.5m in making this a reality. Laura explains further. “The early results are phenomenal. STAR ® Managers develop behaviours that increase engagement, productivity and performance as well as leveraging communication and collaboration between colleagues, which are critical skills in today’s flatter, more matrixed organisational structures.” Laura takes time to reflect on the internal culture at Notion. “We are an approachable, direct, psychobabble free team who are committed to delivering a measurable ROI for our clients through talent, passion and hard work. As a coaching firm we have an open and honest culture and everyone contributes ideas. Above all, we believe in enjoying the learning process and, whilst we are challenging, we ensure that everyone has lots of fun too.” Signing off, Laura explains what the future has in store. “The future is bright (and purple) for Notion. We know that STAR ® Manager will be a driving force in organisations, and having worked in over 30 countries, we expect STAR ® Manager to facilitate our ability to run many more global projects for our clients.” Contact: Laura Ashley-Timms Company: Notion Limited, 12 Hamilton Terrace, Leamington Spa, CV32 4LY, UK Telephone: +44 (0)1926 889885 Web Address:
