  1. 1. Business is elemental, rather like the wind. The wind is capricious and thoroughly inconsistent. Just like business, it rages and then softly murmurs all in the same breath and all on the same day. You can’t see it. You can’t capture it. You can’t hold it. But you can feel its effect and harness its energy. The wind changes everything. Season by season, it blows warm and then icy cold. It twists and envelops, dances and bites. In all of its various shapes and guises the wind blows through every business. Yours included. You can feel its force in the way your leaders inspire others, in the way creativity and innovation take hold and in the way your people and teams communicate and collaborate, but are you harnessing talent to its full effects? Taking charge of the wind that blows through your business can help you to take better control of your business. Here’s how it’s done… Harnessing elemental talent...

  4. 4. What Has Been Said Thank you again for the creative thought, the vision and the ultimate experience. It was a huge success. It doesn't get any better when the Sr. VP of the theatre takes aside my boss and my manager's boss (who was also there) and says "This was brilliant! Absolutely well done!” 04 In Mark’s own words “The focus of any business is all about being successful, but success is also a highly personal experience. Recently, a female conference attendee was inspired to pick up the phone and talk to her most difficult customer using new skills and techniques she had learned. Difficulties were confronted and resolved and in the spirit of an entirely new engagement the client’s orders have since tripled. Speaking of success, a Russian delegate at a recent seminar was able to effect closure of a contract down from typically 18 months to just 6 weeks using the armoury of new techniques he had acquired. It’s these snapshots of personal successes, linked to business performance improvement, that make everything we do pleasurably worthwhile and immensely rewarding.” Snapshot ‘‘Congratulations on a great first delivery. I really appreciate how you stepped into this role and worked to create an engaging programme. You have been a great team to work with and I appreciate all the effort you put into developing and delivering this for us.” ‘‘ Contact Mark Ridley Lower Woodspeen Court, Lambourn Road, Newbury, Berkshire, RG20 8BL United Kingdom +44(0)1488 658686 sales@transformpeople.com www.transformpeople.com The feedback is that the programme was life changing – well done!” ‘‘
