We created Tea Break Training because we believe there is a smarter and faster way to sustainably grow the skills and competencies of people at work. We are all Short on Time and Big on Ambition – which we shorten to STBAM (because we are too busy to write it out !)
I’m Dulcie Swanston. Elizabeth Davis and I, own and operate Tea Break Training. We relate to it’s mission personally. We have 9 children/stepchildren between us and have combined careers in business and law with parenthood. We know what being short on time, but still being really ambitious about achieving your potential, is like. We know, first hand, that business leaders and professionals don’t want (and can’t afford), development that takes their people away from the day job without it really changing anything. They want development that is effective, fast and that really makes a difference to what people achieve in the workplace. Training that people love, that changes minds fast. That’s what we do.
So why are we different ? Well…
We don’t do fluff. Our development and training should not be mistaken for a nice cup of tea with a HR lady…the clue was in the name (We do irony and have a sense of humour.)
We don’t do long days of training with models that you forget when it’s time to actually use them at work.
We don’t do quick one-off sessions, take your cash and hope that’s the job done. We have proven ways to train your people (and you!) in how to keep the learning alive. We want the learning to be used week in, week out, to grow your business.
We do high brow, but we keep it simple.
It’s our job to have read all the books you meant to…but were too busy to start. We will give you and your team a really good grasp of what we have found to be the best bits. But at speed, so that you can get on with leading your team or managing your business (and you can have a proper break on the beach this year and read John Grisham and leave the business at home !)
We have a system that works, that is based on science and research, to help you retain your learning.
We are licensed to use virtually every psychometric test available to understand your people (and yourself) better – MBTI, Insights, Wave, OPQ etc…So if that is part of the plan, great. But we don’t need to sell you one particular solution.
We are not affiliated to one particular training brand, writer, business school or theory…We have read them and been there though. We have seen which ones work and which ones die on the vine. We’ve taken what we think are the best ones – the ones that make a real difference, in real life, to real people, most often. We’ve slimmed those ideas down and made them easy to get to grips with – in less than the time it takes to finish a cup of tea.
So when we understand what is not quite working at work, we can pick and mix from the best ideas around and help you fix it. Fast.
We listen. We understand. And we are confident that we can create a bespoke solution that is absolutely exactly what you need.
The best thing to do is to email us on email@example.com Our website will be brilliant and very whizzy (when we finally get the time…) But you might need help now? So if you do, please do get in touch…quick !
