Legal Rights, Legal Responsibilities and Leadership Essentials

A series of email tips, legal snippets and case scenarios for managers
To help you get it right - or, when it goes wrong, to put it right.
Though written for managers, they are, of course, very helpful for leaders, team members and aspiring managers too.

Management Matters

As a people manager and leader you know all about what I call 'the joy of employing people...'
Seriously, though, the people you work with, manage and lead can be the best part of your day - but can also be the, erm, 'most interesting' part of your day as well...
It helps if you know your rights. Remember, though, that you also have obligations - and that's all about respecting and supporting the rights of your colleagues and team members.
Do you have the management, leadership and communication skills to lead, inspire and motivate your team? To manage, reduce and avoid destructive conflict? All within the law. That's where I can help.​ 
That starts with how you manage YOU.  I call it 'Start With Me'.

We will never share your details

Your People. Your Profits.
I've created the People Power Programme specifically for small businesses, based on 20 years working with businesses like yours and proud, passionate business owners just like you.
This Programme is designed to help small businesses who have a few employees - maybe 10, 20 or even 50 or more - not enough to have your own HR Manager. 
In summary, let's empower You and Your Team to generate your business success. We focus on 3 areas:

1.  Employment Law Compliance and Managing People

2.  Confidence, Performance and Team Relationships 

3.  Skills building


The ‘compensation culture’ 

is stronger than ever


Employment disputes are a fact of life for all employers.  Therefore, it’s all about how to minimise them.


Your best defence is to ‘be prepared’.


Start with legally compliant contracts, policies and procedures.


Train your managers and supervisors so that when you do have to take action, it is fair, reasonable and complies with your policies.  More...
