GROW was the brain child in 2011 of motivational corporate coaches Melinda Nicholds-Brown from NB-Coaching and Eva Harrison of Team Wellbeing. It has been nurtured and GROWing ever since. We strongly believe that harnessing the true potential of your leaders can have the biggest impact on organizational success than any other activity. Our wealth of experience of coaching strong leaders and managers, coupled with our wide ranging business experience, led us to see that teaching leaders to coach their teams and develop leadership skills is a continuous journey. That time spent “thinking big”, setting goals, being able to “paint a vision” of that goal for themselves and their teams needed to be a constant drip, drip, drip feed message. We noticed that creating the right relaxed, playful yet sometimes challenging environment for your attendees, increased the depth of people’s leadership growth. Combining this with the opportunity to share ideas with colleagues to gain insights and feedback before introducing the solutions in the workplace resulted in much better decision making and quicker business benefits.

Thus GROW Programme was born and now the “acorn seedling” of an idea, is well on its way to becoming a “beautiful oak”.

"The minute you’re satisfied with where you are, you aren’t there anymore."

  • Working with Melinda & Eva from GROW has been great. They have listened to our requirements and our employees and developed a tailored leadership Programme that is fun and interactive. The Programme delivered the shift in attitude that we were after. We saw visible change in ownership and the team worked on real issues as well a practice scenarios. This meant that people took time out of the day to day business, but actually worked on the important priority tasks and really got to understand themselves better and how to get the best out of their teams. We are now working on the second year of GROW with the next level of management and hope to filter the Programme throughout all areas
