We help individuals, team and organisations get even better at what they do.

You’re juggling a lot of balls and it’s important to take time out to think about what you’re doing and how you can do it better. That’s where we come in.

Whether working as trainers, facilitators or coaches, we help you focus on the areas you want to improve and hold you accountable. We tell you the uncomfortable facts and ask the awkward questions but always in confidence. We generally work at senior level or with those who are considered “high potential”.

We also provide psychometric tools and help your subject matter experts get their messages across more effectively.

Executive Coaching Programmes

Executive coaching is a great way to help people through changes – it offers them support and someone to bounce ideas off. Whatever the issue (within reason!) a good coach can help develop a plan and make sure you stick to it, by providing the right support at the right time. This can range from a shoulder to cry on to tough love to your personal cheerleader.

We typically work with clients for 9 x 1.5 hour sessions with unlimited phone and email support in between sessions. Sessions are spaced at between 4 – 8 weeks depending on objectives and other commitments. It goes without saying (although we will sign your NDA) that everything you say to a coach is confidential and nothing is shared with employers or anyone else without your permission.

Leadership Development Programmes

Apart from HardTalk and our soon to be launched Youth Leadership Programme, all the training we do is customised to your needs. There are well over 120,000 books and texts on the subject of leadership and leadership development (including ours). Some 3,000 new titles are added annually (including ours!). And thousands of research, scientific and academic articles, whitepapers and case studies tackle the topic. It can be overwhelming.

We therefore keep our training simple and practical. We help people solve problems they face in their daily lives and continue to support them after the training is over. We love hearing when someone has used what they learned during our training. Training isn’t always the answer though, and if we don’t think your problem can be solved by training we’ll introduce you to someone who might be able to help.

We design and deliver tailored programmes based on our clients’ requirements.

Mentoring Programmes

Traditional mentoring focused on developing junior employees (mentees) by pairing them with more experienced, often senior staff (mentors) for a period of time. Though this form of mentoring remains popular, mentoring as a strategy has expanded to include group, reverse, and situational mentoring. Regardless of the form mentoring takes, it facilitates the sharing of knowledge, expertise, skills, insights and experiences through dialog and collaborative learning. It is goal-oriented and promotes professional and personal growth amongst participants. PDSi can help you to build a Corporate Mentoring Culture to face any of the following people-centric challenges:

  • Help new employees get acquainted with the organization and accustomed to their job
  • Train and develop existing employees to enhance performance
  • Encourage personal and professional growth and increase job satisfaction
  • Identify and develop employees with potential to fill key leadership roles
  • Understand and respond to the diversity needs of the workforce

We have exclusive distribution throughout the Middle East of a mentoring platform that matches mentors and mentees and monitors their progress over time.
