What’s the elephant in the room?

What’s happening to cause your L&D issues?

No, not that. Think again. What’s really happening?

When you work with Paul to find a solution, the first place he looks is behind the problem. Then he’ll prod around, because he knows from experience that the root causes of an L&D problem usually go deeper than the effects you see on a day-to-day basis.

His work with you will give you visibility around the real issues and put you in a position to start thinking about them in a way that can lead to powerful, meaningful solutions. It will ultimately help you unlock the potential of your people by helping you look at things differently.

If you have been looking at a problem for a while, it can seem intractable. You need a new perspective, a new viewpoint, a new focus. Sometimes that’s a bigger picture, sometimes it’s in the detail.

Do you have a ‘problem box’?

“The thing is, a problem is only a problem because of the boundaries someone has put around it. So, we’ll talk about any ‘problem box’ that you might have. Part of my job is to sit in the problem box long enough that I see your problem and empathise with you, but not so long that I get stuck in it. Together, we’ll get you out of the box so you can see the solutions that are waiting for you outside it. I’ll then give you the tools to activate them.” Paul Matthews

And that’s exactly what Paul, as one of the foremost experts on L&D, will help you identify. Get in touch today for a no-obligation conversation about how he can help
