The People Management Business

The independent HR and Coaching consultancy enabling excellence in leadership, management and development of people across schools, academies, colleges and the wider public sector

“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right”

A famous quote from Henry Ford who knew a thing or two about leadership, innovation and success. Our approach starts with the belief, like Henry Ford, if you believe you can then "you are right" – every single person has the potential to continually improve and grow. But it all starts with that inner self-belief.

We believe it is the role and purpose of leadership at all levels of schools, academies and colleges to inspire, motivate and develop everyone in their organisation to achieve their potential so that all children and students can achieve their potential.

And so, welcome to our website. We have designed it to provide you with information about our services, obviously. But we want it to be more than that, providing you with a growing bank of relevant resources and tools that we have developed along the way and we can share with you.

Here you will also find a library of articles, videos and case studies that will develop and extend with time; some from people in the education professional and some from others outside the profession but all with themes, experiences and ideas that we can all learn from. However, in keeping with our business value of continuous improvement we welcome feedback, suggestions and ideas for further development as well as contributions and new items to publish, so please do contact us.

And we have a firm belief in the power and influence of art (in the broadest sense) to support change and progress through innovative perception on issues, creative thinking and presentation of challenging ideas. Over time our website will evolve and develop using art, in many forms, to encourage new thinking and better ways of leading, managing and developing people.

We are also passionate about coaching as we firmly believe this is the way forward to enable and empower people in schools, academies and colleges to grow and develop in ways that are sustainable and effective in meeting the challenges of an increasingly uncertain and fast changing world.

“The best motivation comes from within”

Michael Johnson
