Our Solutions

Our solutions

Please find below a summary of many of the programmes we can provide. Typically they are one or two days long, and many MaST clients will have tailored variants to meet their particular needs and populations. Call or email us to find out how we can tailor programmes for you and your organisation.

MaST Theatre

All training and conferences have a common purpose – to bring about some form of change within an organisation. But organisations can only change if the people within it change. MaST Theatre challenges the attitudes that govern our behaviours. By working on the hearts as well as the minds of delegates, the reasons for change can be more easily understood and the effects of maintaining the status quo can be felt.

Management Development

A flexible suite of modules covering behaviours and activities that those new to management or with no formal training will find invaluable. The programme enables people to make the transition from individual contributor to manager. Once in a management position, MaST helps the individual progress through a series of management levels.

Performance Management

Covers the generic points of performance management e.g. appraisals and reviews but often is focused on the clients process and how to use it effectively to change behaviours and motivation.
