The Power of You

For the last nine years, UCan Training has successfully focused on helping organisations develop their young talent. The Power of You online programme gives individuals the skills to confidently communicate with people at all levels, influence decisions, set achievable goals and develop meaningful business networks.

Online coaching offers enormous flexibility (without geographical boundaries — ideal for businesses with employees in multiple locations) and can be scheduled around other activities to fit in with your company schedule, saving your organisation valuable time and money.

After conducting a study using a sample of 12 women from two organisations, as well as one individual participant, we discovered how online coaching utilising a combination of synchronous, asynchronous, individual and group coaching creates a powerful range of methods to facilitate behavioural change.

‘I really liked the online coaching sessions. Zoom was brilliant. It was fantastic to be able to see people’s faces, body language and reactions. Your face and emotions say a lot of things, and instantly you become connected. It was really, really good’.

Mixed groups or female-only — the choice is yours

For the last few years, the programme’s content has focused on developing young women. Low self-confidence and self-belief combined with a lack of vision for their future career are factors deemed to prevent young women from putting themselves forward for career progression.

However, many organisations also recognise the benefits of offering the programme to mixed groups. Sharon has recently piloted a successful mixed-group for The Power of You programme for Pfizer, so we’re now offering clients the choice of mixed groups or female only.

‘I was impressed that Sharon could take a group of people in different roles and work with us all to improve our skills and confidence. She used her own experiences to highlight key principles in her coaching. The training was a really amazing insight into the benefit of self-empowerment, and I quickly saw results by using Sharon’s tools and techniques in the workplace’.

The programme

The core programme comprises a maximum of eight participants from one company. The three half-days, structured over a three-month period, allows participants to foster new relationships and start to build a network they’ll carry forward for the rest of their careers.

Topics covered include:

  • Developing self-awareness of thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
  • The importance of words, voice and body language.
  • How to adapt communication styles and influence decisions.
  • A seven-step model for presenting ideas.
  • Preparing for difficult conversations.
  • Tools to help with decision-making.
  • Developing others.
  • Having a winning mindset and overcoming limiting beliefs.
  • The benefits of positive self-talk and how to visualise success.
  • Making connections and building strong relationships.
  • Seven steps to setting and achieving business and personal goals.

The Power of You develops leadership skills, increases confidence to apply for and gain top-level jobs, and has a proven track record of individuals being promoted within six to twelve months of attending.

The course covered a range of topics and was very interactive and stimulating. I learned a lot, particularly around getting buy-in from colleagues in tricky situations and achieving goals and objectives’.
