Achieve Your Goals

A commitment to development, giving your Managers the skills to become your greatest asset.


A focus on engagement, ensuring you have things in place to retain a happy, productive team. 


1.  Are you Managers effective?

Some Supervisors or Managers probably need support on a one to one basis. 

They may have specific character traits that prevent them from leading and motivating their team or a blind spot that prevents them from changing. 

Surge Ahead works with a unique style of training, consultancy, mentoring and coaching.

Working either onsite or just as well remotely to suit your needs.

Providing a combination of monthly group sessions and 3 weekly one to one sessions that get fast results and vast improvements.

2.  We then look at if your teams are engaged?  Finding great people is just the start of the employee journey. Ensuring their development is  essential. Then we check they are happy and motivated, which requires looking from the outside in and implementing an engagement strategy that encourages your people to stay.

Supporting you in the way that works best for you, being totally flexible to your requirements.


Working with you as an extension to your business, supporting your managers in their development, improving your employer branding or increasing your teams engagement.



If you have a specific area of your people function that you would like help with, maybe managing recruitment for a key role or designing and delivering some bespoke  training then one-off help and a set fee may be more appropriate.
