The Pushmi-pullyu programme
This coaching programme is exclusive to Sagegreen. You won’t find anything like it anywhere else for its content, its impact, its focus on results – and its success.

The Pushmi-pullyu Programme is about helping people and organisations know where to turn.


Some typical situations
“I’ve got six very capable managers and I need to know who should join my board of directors. Help me decide.”

“She’s a top performer but she needs to be convinced of her ability. How can she become
more confident?”

“Can these two departments work closer together?”

“This team leader needs to command more respect from his team so that together they can
impact the business better.”

“I can see great potential in this new employee. How can I best prepare her to manage a team?”

If any of these or similar situations match your circumstances, the Pushmi-pullyu Programme from Sagegreen can provide the solutions. Contact us today to discuss.

How does it work?

We create an environment whereby your nominated people can concentrate their efforts and focus very specifically on certain key areas which are agreed at the commencement of the programme.

Every individual’s needs are different, their rate of progress and their development will differ but we are expert in working with people to achieve the agreed objectives and produce the results that will benefit them and the business
.

The benefits to the business

In our experience people are flattered and delighted to receive 1-1 coaching. We find the positive results go well beyond the actual Pushmi-pullyu Programme. The ‘coachees’ become more loyal to the company, more committed and certainly more energised. But beware - their enthusiasm can be infectious!

Invest in your employees. Let us help develop the talent in your business.

Imagine the impact

The changes we can make in the approach, style, motivation and focus of any one individual are extremely positive – and in many cases, life changing.

Imagine if we helped a whole team of people – perhaps a few from the same department or at the same stage in their career, or at the same level in the organisation. We regularly do just that, working with a team of say five or six people. The results are phenomenal, the cumulative impact on the business is immense.

The proof of the Pushmi-pullyu Programme pudding..
“We wanted to help members of our senior management team on both an individual and team basis and recognised it was appropriate to call in an experienced and sensitive professional. Graham Whiley planned the Pushmi-pullyu programme with meticulous detail which focussed strongly on performance improvement.

He gave unlimited one-to-one time to each member of our team, understanding and reacting to their individual requirements. He coached each person to create a step change in their approach to how they work and live – and every member of the team found the programme positive, challenging and tremendous fun.

The process has been very successful and has strengthened both individual and team performance. The participants are now actively engaged in strategic planning which includes a further programme of coaching for our more junior members of staff – again with Sagegreen.”

Clive Memmott , Chief Executive - Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce


“Embarking on a major management development programme we had to be confident it would be effective. We involved the experienced and highly capable professionals at Sagegreen to design and implement a coaching programme for members of our senior management team. The Pushmi-pullyu Programme was extremely successful in enhancing both individual and team performance.

We then asked Sagegreen to create and deliver a team development programme for our entire workforce, focussing on process improvement. We were delighted with another successful outcome which has helped to consolidate service excellence across the business.

We are now engaged in phase 2 of the development programme and look forward to continued process improvement for our engineers.”

Phil Ewbank, Founder and Chairman - Commercial Contract Engineers Ltd


“We enjoyed working with Sagegreen to develop a strategic HR plan that we can all work with. We’ve resolved so many current and potential future issues; we genuinely couldn’t have done as well on our own.”

“I feel we have a real competitive edge after Sagegreen’s involvement in our HR strategy. Their specialist experience has given our people and our business a whole new dimension. We’re really going places.”
