Leadership and Management Development, Coaching, Team Building and Presenting


Gill Graves: Founder of IridiumWe are passionate about enabling leaders, managers, teams and individuals to utilise more of their potential. Imagine your organisation if everybody was working at their full potential. Everything we do is bespoke and will be tailored to your exact requirements. For this reason we only run in-house workshops and one to one programmes and coaching. We are not a large organisation and so one of the co-owners will manage your project with the aim of always exceeding expectations. We love what we do and would love the opportunity to discuss with you. How can we enable you to achieve your goals?

We are probably best known for our Presenting Yourself With Impact workshops, training courses, one to one coaching and book because we have a proven record in providing increased levels of confidence and expertise in our participants. We are also specialists in the area of training managers as coaches and provide a range of coaching skills workshops – including the ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring for managers which enables your managers to have effective coaching conversations both formally and informally. Our book ‘Coaching With Impact at work‘ is available on Amazon and we provide coaching supervision. Many of our programmes use personality profiling tools such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Insights Discovery.

Our areas of expertise include all areas of Leadership, Management, Talent and Employee Development enabling you to improve personal and organisational performance through a range of training courses, workshops and coaching.

Insights Discovery Providermbti




Which personality profiling tool?

Myers Briggs (MBTI) is the world’s number one personality type indicator and is used by us in coaching, personal development, team building and change programmes. See also our blog on why it is not the Myers Briggs Test and Myers Briggs Testing.

Insights Discovery We believe that Insights Discovery is the easiest to understand and most comprehensive personality profiling tool and so its benefits are long lasting. Insights Discovery is great for team building as Insights Discovery provides a common language for teams using the metaphor of colour. The Insights Discovery personal profile is 20 pages long and provides a platform for ongoing personal development.
