Services

Consultancy

Managing Matters provides a range of consultancy services ranging from its BizHealth package through to facilitation of processes such as strategic planning and mediation.

For organisations with less than 20 employees the 6-hour BizHealth package provides a cost effective check of your organisational structure and culture to identify gaps in your strategic, governance and communications frameworks.  If you feel that there’s something not quite right in how your organisation or business is performing but you can’t put your finger on it, then BizHealth might just be the answer.  And if you have more than 20 employees, then it will take a little more time, but your needs can be tailored around the 10-hour BizHealth package.

Need help with your strategic or business planning processes?  Or perhaps the resolution of conflict between a couple of your employees?  Whatever type of facilitation is needed, Managing Matters can assist using a coaching framework – that is, helping those who have the answers find the best way forward.

Through direct service delivery or by engaging other external expertise, Managing Matters is also able to assist across a range of management and organisational needs such as professional writing, independent board membership, governance frameworks, strategic communications and Board evaluation.

Training

Targeted, relevant and appropriate training is not necessarily easy to find.  Most importantly, even good training packages often fall down through a lack of follow-up.  The real value in training is in ensuring that staff bring back and implement the new skills and ideas they have gained.  Otherwise, what’s the point?

Managing Matters has the capacity to provide training packages across the broad Organisational Development spectrum.  This includes:

  • Corporate Governance
  • Risk Management
  • Leadership Development
  • High Performance Teams
  • Government and Parliamentary Process
  • Developing a Coaching Culture

But whatever your specific need might be, just ask Managing Matters – because even if what you want is outside our scope, we probably know someone who can help.

Most importantly, Managing Matters makes an important offer to each training participant – for just a small additional fee we will have two meetings with the staff member on-the-job after the completion of training, to develop and implement a plan to ensure what they’ve learnt is built upon and strengthened.

Coaching

In all its work, Managing Matters uses a coaching framework.  Coaching is not counselling, and it’s not mentoring.  Nor is it confined to the sports field!  Organisational and corporate coaching is about finding ways for individuals and teams to unlock the vast potential they possess.

Coaching helps individuals and teams identify and eliminate the interferences that hold them back from performing at optimal levels.  It provides a confidential and supportive environment where individuals can explore options for taking action in the face of challenges and obstacles that may seem too difficult to tackle.  Most importantly, it works.

Coaching can be delivered through various mediums – face-to-face, Skype and even over the phone.  And packages can be developed which involve a mix of methods, and include phone and email support outside the regular weekly or fortnightly sessions.

For someone wishing to explore the option of coaching in more detail, Managing Matters offers a free introductory 30 minute session where the process is discussed in more depth. For more information on coaching and the packages offered by Managing Matters click here.
