Our services

We have a huge range of different business consultancy services that we can offer – from a simple ‘healthcheck’ to an in-depth review of your processes.

We aim to work in a way that is supportive but that will also allow us to become your ‘critical friend’ so that we can see what’s going on in your business and identify strategies to improve efficiency, work smarter and increase profitability.

Consultancy Services

ALC provides expert consulting and management development, designed to deliver measurable higher performance in the workplace. We support managers in all sectors and ensure learning is applied in such a way that it has a positive impact.

Executive Mentoring

Do you have someone you can bounce ideas off? Someone who can challenge your thinking and assumptions without encroaching on your authority? Someone who can expose your blind spots without affecting your credibility? Executive Mentoring is a short, medium or long-term process where you are encouraged to explore issues of concern and devise strategies for resolving them. All this is carried out in an emotionally and psychologically safe environment without risk to your employment or status.

Facilitation

If you are chairing a difficult meeting, where contentious issues are on the table, it can be very challenging to maintain impartiality. Ideally, you need a framework where issues can be discussed openly without becoming confrontational or acrimonious. Facilitation works to empower individuals or groups to find their own answers to problems without control or manipulation. Our experienced facilitators help groups or individuals to learn, find a solution or reach a consensus, without imposing or dictating an outcome.

Mangement Development Programme

We provide a bespoke, in-house management development programme for directors and senior managers who have management experience, with varying degrees of management training, but no formal management qualifications. The programme can lead to the Chartered Management Institute’s Diploma in Management (level 5) and Chartered Manager status, which is the professional equivalent of an MBA at a fraction of the cost.

Motivating people for success

This is a stand alone, in-house programme for senior management teams that shows how organisational development can help you achieve more effective performance through your workforce. Each programme consists of three interactive half-day workshops, which cover:

  • Culture, Values and Behaviours
  • Effects of Change and Changing Attitudes
  • Personal Development Reviews and Needs
