Explore leadership styles with Amanda Downs, Director of Commercial Leadership at The Uspire Group and Founding Director of Sales Growth Expert and award-winning People and Culture Consultant Coleen Wiltshire. Amanda and Coleen support teams to drive the value they bring to their customers, and the capability of their people to sustain it. They understand the complexities and challenges of building a culture where people are motivated to succeed.
An individual’s management approach is strongly influenced by their personality preferences. In this Team Insights session Amanda and Coleen will provide tips using personal insights profiling and a simple and accessible four-colour model. This will help you to understand more about preferences, and how they can have a positive or negative influence on your Executives/those with whom you work with.
As a high performing Assistant, it’s fundamental to understand the different personality styles and appreciate how to be adaptable in an ever-changing work environment.
We spend a lot of team time talking and thinking about exactly what we need to do, the gift of this team tool is that it builds a common language to focus on how a team can adapt & connect with its stakeholders to be the best it can be. The session re-establishes the power of feedback and the benefits of embracing personal style diversity in the team.
This session will prove invaluable and be a great opportunity to learn more.

Nestled in a valley in the Chilterns, you’ll find the delightful 12th century market town of Henley-on-Thames. And on the banks of the Thames itself, with the river gliding slowly by, you’ll find Hotel du Vin’s Henley-on-Thames hotel. Behind the classic Georgian architecture of this old brewery, you’ll be welcomed warmly into this tranquil haven.
The inspired re-incarnation of this cluster of historic listed buildings has created one of the most striking hotels in Henley-on-Thames. A former brewery for 300 years, enhanced charm, original period detail while adding a contemporary sparkle. Escape to the sanctuary of one of the 43 beautifully furnished rooms and suites, where you’ll find a custom-made bed, hand-sprung mattress, soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, fluffy towels and robes, monsoon shower or roll top bath.
