Creating better worlds of work through learning

The ability of leaders, managers, HR professionals and internal comms teams to engage colleagues has a measurable impact on the productivity and performance of any business. We established the scarlettabbott academy to equip those people with the knowledge and skills they need to make a positive difference to their teams and workforces.

Learning that’s practical and flexible

When it comes to learning, one size doesn’t fit all. The best way for people to learn depends on the type of role they’re in, the access they have to digital channels and, importantly, the subject matter and learning outcomes. We offer courses and one-off modules, some delivered live (in person or remotely) and some accessible on demand.

All our learning experiences are rooted in robust academic theory and backed up by the decades of combined experience our specialists have accumulated. Many are also accredited by professional bodies and are eligible for CPD points. However, their defining feature is practicality. We want to give everyone specific, usable knowledge, tactics and techniques that will enable them to make their working world better.

Their awareness of, and influence on, the components of culture are hugely important, as are their visibility to colleagues and ability to communicate in an effective and inspirational way. Our coaching offerings for leaders are designed to enable every leader to be the best version of themselves, harnessing their natural strengths.

Learning for managers
Business leaders and HR professionals have long known that people managers, at all levels within an organisation, can be integral to the engagement (or otherwise) of their teams. They have a significant influence over the lives of their direct reports and can be the difference between contented, motivated, engaged colleagues and discontented, disengaged and even disruptive ones. Our learning offerings for managers enable them to acquire and hone the skills needed to engage teams, day in, day out, resulting in workplaces where people can feel their best, be their best and do their best.
