We focus on the voice and body to develop insight and skills, from strategic risk-taking to authentic communication
"It really helped to bring the team together, in a way other activities have often failed to do. I've already noticed a tangible improvement in collaboration across the department."
We work within your organisation to help you develop compelling leaders and inspired teams. Whether we’re working with multiple leadership cohorts or individual teams, our programmes are challenging, inclusive and effective. We work in close consultation with you to isolate the issues, develop a solution, and find the right format – be it digital learning, residential face-to-face courses, workshops for specific functions or levels, or something else entirely.
"Chirp challenged us to examine the qualities of trust and courage, which are key to enabling our Agile teams to honestly inspect and adapt the way they work. Both qualities were put well and truly to the test in a fun and innovative session. It was valuable for us all."

Our sessions are experiential, and use the voice and body to generate insight. Many involve learning a song and then using it in a range of bespoke exercises. Some are designed to unlock self-awareness and understanding – of how we manage uncertainty or change, for example. Others centre on practical techniques that can be easily applied at work, such as strategic breathing and voice projection. This practical experience is underpinned by skilled facilitation, enabling colleagues to learn and develop through reflection, discussion and feedback. This process helps participants unpack their experience and apply the insight it generates back at work.
