The Advantage will get you thinking differently

There are seven core skills that are vital today. This is not about communication and presentation skills but about going deeper, driving behaviour change that will positively impact approaches to work and life. The Advantage is an experiential learning, high-impact two-day workshop.

It’s designed specifically to raise self-awareness and is based on the internationally selling book, The Advantage, now in its 2nd edition at 7 Skills for the Future, written by Emma-Sue Prince and  published by Pearson Business. There are 7 core skills crucial for today: adaptability, critical thinking, empathy, integrity, optimism, being proactive, and resilience, vital in gaining and improving personal and professional success.

This workshop has been tailored for digital leaders – providing you with the skills you need to get ahead in management

The Advantage in Action:

The Advantage is currently being run with a number of different target groups in the UK, and worldwide, ranging from senior managers in Nestle and Starbucks, to doctors in the the NHS, and most recently lawyers in a UK Law Firm. It works with such diverse groups because the facilitator works only with what emerges from that group during that particular session.


“I’ve learnt about myself, my strengths and weaknesses from these 2 days. I am going to apply [what I have learnt] whenever I’m lacking confidence. I would recommend this training to others.”

“I would recommend [The Advantage] to others because after this training session I met with a new person… a person who is confident, who knows how to adapt to difficult situations and knows how to say YES.” Nestle Bangladesh

Upcoming Events & Case Studies

Soft Skills for the Ordthodox Jewish Community.
Soft Skills for the Ordthodox Jewish Community.

Emma Sue was delighted to deliver 2 workshops on Adaptability, Being Proactive and Empathy to groups of young women from the orthodox Jewish community in North London in May. The workshops were successful, and Emma Sue returned to the Jewish Orthodox Community to deliver further workshops in July on resilience, integrity, and being proactive.

The Advantage was chosen because of its experiential nature and because the facilitator works “in the moment” with what emerges from the group.
