Exclusive to The Burnt Chef Project and in collaboration with Michelle Moreno from QAB Leadership.

Gallup, who is a global analytics and advice company, announced this data; “70% of the variance in team engagement is determined solely by the manager.” 

This data, though shocking, means that we have the insight and opportunity to make major changes to help solve engagement with our teams and ultimately their well-being.

Things that get in the way of engaged managers and teams are;

  • Lack of training in the correct skills

  • Time

  • Being engaged and being looked after themselves

I am

In this one-hour interactive workshop you cover;

  1. Understanding the power of small talk and how it builds healthy relationships with individuals

  2. The impact quick check-ins have on your teams to build trust, communication and pre-empt issues

How to unlock your team's potential to thrive - a new one-to-one model (2 Hour)

£840+VAT (8 - 12 delegates)

Exclusive to The Burnt Chef Project and in collaboration with Michelle Moreno from QAB Leadership.

We can get stuck in our ways of doing things, “that’s how we have always done it,” and not pay attention to the facts which are; that telling people what to do, doesn’t get you, them or the business any further forward.  As Simon Sinek said;


“A leader's job is not to do the work for others, it’s to help others figure out how to do it themselves, to get things done and to succeed beyond what they thought was possible.” - Simon Sinek

Our people and this generation need attentive attention to thrive and having to wait around for a yearly appraisal won’t help you or them. One-to-one’s with your team;

  • Should not be only about their to-do list, it should be about them too

  • Should not be a process that trains them to be micro-managed by YOU

  • Should not be driven by you, but by them

Michelle will help you in this two-hour interactive workshop to;


  1. Have the full understanding of a new model to create a productive one to one

  2. Teaching skills to be in service to your team, helping them, having their back and making them the highest performing teams in the world

  3. Additionally creating an ongoing performance management system led and driven by the team member
