Unlock the Power of You

Power of You, is designed to prepare talented individuals for the future and allow businesses to develop strong succession plans.

This three-day programme, spread over three months, gives individuals the skills to confidently communicate with people at all levels, allowing them to operate at a more senior level, influence decisions, set achievable goals and develop meaningful business networks.

Sharon Jackson, UCan’s founder, explains: “Businesses today have to focus on profitability. And, in doing so, they must have sustainable succession plans in place to ensure that people are able to adapt to changing and competitive market conditions.” She believes the best way to do this is by investing in coaching and training. “It’s important to give people the skills and techniques to help them develop as individuals, whilst at the same time contribute to the ongoing success of the business.”

Originally designed for Gerald Eve, the third largest partnership of chartered surveyors and property consultants in the UK, Power of You has already delivered remarkable results.
