Open Courses at the
PHP Academy

We have a reputation for developing and delivering inspiring, engaging and facilitating interactive training and development targeted towards the major challenges businesses face in terms of safety and performance.

Our team have an enormous breadth and depth of experience. Their knowledge, experience and passion for what they do inspires, engages and motivates people to make a difference and manage human and organisational performance to improve safety and performance.

The courses listed below are primarily designed to be delivered in an open format at Wyastone, Herefordshire. However, we can modify these relatively simply to accommodate your own organisational needs and deliver them at your location.

Introduction to H&OP

This free course provides attendees with an overview of what Human and Organisational Performance (HOP) is about and how you can use it immediately on return to the workspace.

The topics covered include The Theory of Human Performance and the Drift Model; Human Error and the W.I.T.H. model; Error Prevention Tools and Techniques; and Courageous Leadership.

You will leave with an understanding of how HOP can improve your profit margin and a selection of practical tools and techniques which will help you get started.

Feedback from previous courses has been excellent as most participants had never considered these concepts before and most attendees engage with Paradigm afterwards to work together to solve their H&OP issues.

Appreciative Inquiry

It is easier to identify and repeat good habits than to stop bad ones!

When individuals, teams, or organisations want to make changes, usually a ‘fix it’ model is employed. People will often collect data, identify obstacles, make diagnoses 
We can choose to seek out what is already good and right about the individual, team, or organisation. That’s the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) approach. 

This one-day course will give you the knowledge and skills to start the journey towards an effective Appreciative Inquiry approach within your business through theory, case studies and group discussions. Participants will be given course notes in both hard and soft copy to maximise the knowledge transfer to your workplace.

High Performance Teams

Many talk about high performance team development but this training and coaching programme really delivers. It does this by combining simulation-based experiential learning with a proven record in moving teams from Kirkpatrick Level 1 to Level 3, and cutting edge scientific research to develop highly effective teams and leaders.
Teams take time to evolve and while we can't promise to give you the A-Team at the end of the course, this course accelerates your development by using facilitators who have personal experience in domains where effective teamwork was literally the difference between life and death and giving you the tools to take away to improve your teams right now.

Accident and Incident Investigation Course

This highly interactive courses provides delegates with new skills and knowledge which enables them to competently conduct investigations into minor incidents in the workplace, or to be part of a team investigating major or catastrophic incidents.

We know that when the worst things happen, even the best organisations don't see them coming. Everything looks so obvious from the wrong side of an incident but why do the best people make mistakes? Why do organisations with great reputations and even greater processes and procedures seem to have the most catastrophic unwanted events? And why to do those same things seem to happen again and again and again?

Optimising Complex System Performance

This course provides an introduction to help companies solve a modern conundrum.

Socio-technical systems  - combined organisational and technological workplaces and communities - have become complex, particularly with globalisation and advances in technology. Making sense of this complexity and understanding how to optimise system performance relies on new theories and tools. This introductory course provides an overview of current theories of complexity and resilience, and introduces tools that will help ensure systems support optimal performance by the people within them.

Cost: Normally £195+VAT.
