Do Your Geeks Say:

"It Won't Work"?

If in your organisation you notice misalignment between techies and leadership, we should talk!

We train engineers how to communicate with managers and commercial staff.

We train managers and commercial staff how to speak to engineers.

I never expect much from soft skills training but during this one I had two distinct "why haven't I thought of this before?" moments providing noticeable improvement of my understanding how human interaction works.

Not a small feat for a stereotypical geek...”

Pawel Moll, Principal Engineer, ARM

"Before this training, they were either not interested or saw my ideas as being imposed on them! It was not their solution.

Adelina helped me see the difference in perspectives between manager and engineers. This knowledge, together with her techniques, enabled me to pivot my pitch to get buy-in from engineers. After the pitch, I had a couple of engineers offering solutions and asking me to lead on a challenge."

Jayant Lavankar, Project Manager, ARM

We transform soft skills like influencing, negotiating, presentation and collaboration skills into algorithms, protocols and formulas they can apply straight away.

Why it works for Managers and Commercial Staff

We help them understand the engineers' perspective and give them techniques on how to talk to engineers to get their buy-in .

All our training simulates real work situations, is based on brain science and we transform soft skills into technical language geeks understand.

Simulating Real Work Situations

Training is 100% customised and designed to simulate real work situations attendees face.
