Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are changing the nature of office work, freeing people from routine jobs and allowing them to focus on more creative, strategic, and collaborative work.
As routine jobs become more automated and we move toward a digital-human workforce, people will need to specialise in key soft skills that automation lacks.
We here at BCF Group know that Learning & Development (L&D) leaders are tasked with keeping employees up to speed with the ever-evolving skills and learning ecosystem.
L&D should, in today's learning landscape, provide the tools to constantly reskill workers for new, emerging roles.
People excel in areas like conflict management, emotional intelligence, and storytelling when offered an opportunity to approach and grow these skills within the workplace. Organisations that help foster these natural human traits like collaboration (in teams), collaborative communication, storytelling, coaching and managing change are higher performing than those that don't.
We know it's not possible for L&D to know all the answers (or deliver them quickly), and they'll have to rely on employees to curate and share knowledge as well. Manager cohorts who support each other over social media are an effective way for new managers to get tips on how to give feedback or approach difficult conversations. Moreover, social communities also empower employees to rate, review, and share learning content with peers.
Here at BCF Group, we have guided and helped some of our key clients to navigate this ever changing landscape within the business world. Please feel free to make contact with us for your free 45 min exploration discussion.
People development through business coaching is fast, efficient and cost effective and will get you measurable results. Business coaching can be applied to any employee within an organisation; from executive coaching for a company director, right through to coaching a front line member of staff. It can help to bring out the best in the individual and help to remove the barriers that are preventing them from reaching their full potential.
At the BCF Group, we have a specialist division devoted to business coaching and driving incredible results for our clients. Our team of accredited business coaches come from a variety of business sectors, but all have valuable and comprehensive business experience to help develop individuals at all levels.
So whether you are looking to outsource your coaching needs, achieve an ILM accredited qualification by attending an ILM Level 7 coaching course, or you would like to train your employees to become business coaches, we at the BCF Group can help.Business Coaching and Mentoring
Good management and leadership is essential if a business is to maximise its potential and achieve its goals. From armies to football teams, no matter how good the individual is at their role, as a unit they will be nowhere near as effective as they could be if they don't have clear objectives and motivation. Similarly, managers also need to have clear management objectives to work towards fulfilling.
Today's management training courses recognise the fact that managers need to be a combination of 'managers' and 'leaders'. Managers are typically those who determine the firm's goals and come up with methods for achieving those goals. Leaders are the ones who motivate the workforce and inspire them. Successful managers always have a talent for both.
Along with our bespoke management training programmes, we also run scheduled open courses at various locations across the UK. Whether it is our own First Line Management course for those with little or no experience of managing, or the Institute of Leadership and Management accredited ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership and Management qualification, we can provide a management course for your particular requirements.Management Training and Development

For health and safety training - or indeed any form of learning for that matter - to be effective, course delegates must stay focused. Our health and safety course tutors are experts in keeping the attention of those on the course, which results in more information being absorbed and retained.
Health and safety can be a dry subject at the best of times, particularly when in comes to learning about legislation and regulations. Rather than sit and work through a textbook all day, mixing in activities such as interactive discussions and group work help to engage the whole class, keeping delegates interested so they do not "switch off" and miss vital content.
Using our pre-written health and safety courses as a starting point, we can work with you to create a tailored, bespoke in-house training programme for your employees. By getting to understand your business, your industry sector and the objectives which you would like the training to achieve, we can create and deliver an in-house programme which gets results.Health and Safety Training
