You really get hands-on experience that enables you to practice what you are learning and begin using it to enhance your performance and effectiveness from the moment you get back to the office

Tim Young

Chairman, John Roan and Partners

The challenge

John Rowan and Partners, an award winning, multi-disciplinary property and consultancy based in London, spend a substantial proportion of their annual turnover on training and developing staff. They firmly believe their people are integral to company success and are proud to be one of the UK’s Top 100 Best Companies to Work For.

“Whenever you go on a training programme, there is always a danger that you get back to work and quickly slip into your old ways again,” the Chairman explains. “With TWI, we’ve experienced a continued benefit and that’s why we keep on asking them to come back for further training.”

John Rowan and Partners believe that the unique blend of theory and practical, using hands-on experience, is what makes the TWI approach to development so successful. “It’s much more than just theory”, Tim Young explains. “You really get hands-on experience that enables you to practice what you are learning and begin using it to enhance your performance and effectiveness from the moment you get back to the office.”

Our approach

Training from the top down: Executive Development and 360-degree Feedback

Our Executive Development and 360-degree Feedback have given the most senior members of staff at John Rowan the awareness to work more effectively as a team and create a unified vision of the company’s future.

They are now able to address any key issues that may arise, including those difficult issues which sometimes occur between colleagues. As Tim Young explains, “we now have a much greater understanding of ourselves and our colleagues. Tom Flatau really helps you get to the point of the issues in a supportive manner, facilitating self-awareness and new ways of working together.”
