GWRC engaged Umbrella to provide resilience training for all staff, delivered to operational teams in their geographic locations. The training and follow-up was a proactive wellbeing initiative designed to equip staff with practical skills in their diverse roles. Following the roll-out across the organisation, resilience training is provided for new staff as they join the GWRC.

Recently, Umbrella designed and delivered a series of training and support sessions for managers to help them lead effectively through organisational change, and maintain morale and productivity in their teams:

A very skilled presenter, who quickly established an environment of trust, enabling people to speak as freely as they chose.

Loved the course – great opportunity to focus on what I need to do to help myself, the team, and my customers going through change.

I found the course highly beneficial, and enjoyed the presentation style – lots of class interaction and feedback, relaxed environment, plenty of laughs – an ideal learning situation.

“Gaynor and her team have engaged successfully at every level in the organisation, delivering practical, evidence-based programmes that speak directly to people about their real working and personal lives.”
