Case Studies - The Create Network

Case Studies

 

Because we do so much, we like to let our work speak for itself. here are some quick examples of the kinds of projects we have created. And these are just the starting point - if you want to know more about the projects, you can speak to us, or in some cases the client we do the projects for. Have a read, and get in touch!

 

 

 

Case Studies for Business


 

Case Study 1

 

A small family based business required support from a Create Network coach to create a strategic vision for their business and to make a plan to achieve growth.  Through a series of team sessions, using creative mapping techniques, visioning activities and storytelling the team developed a clearer understanding of their current strengths, motivations and   opportunities as well as a vision for the future.  Building on the initial growth, the increased team completed a team building event to welcome a new team member and to gain a greater understanding of the strengths and constraints of the teams styles and to plan how to increase organisational performance by challenging each other and improving team and client communications.

 

Case Study 2

 

An international Wealth Management Organisation wanted a career development workshop to inspire and motivate it’s employees to take ownership and plan their career development in more depth and with greater focus.  Our workshop got people moving, talking, thinking and reflecting.  It was facilitated by Chartered Business Psychologists and acting professionals, guiding the teams through an experiential learning event that really engaged every individual on the topic of who they are, what they want from their career and to recognise how they would be motivated to achieve their goals and ambitions.  

 

Case Study 3

 

A client required a suite of assessment centre materials to be designed and delivered to select financial professionals for a large public sector organisation.  Our business psychologists consulted widely with job holders in the organisation and designed recruitment materials that helped to predict success in each job role.  The interviews, role plays and written exercises that were designed and delivered enabled robust and fair selection decisions to be made and for an efficient and cost effective recruitment programme to be achieved on behalf of the client.

Case Studies for Education


 

Case Study 1

 

Since 2006, Create Network have designed and led a large-scale annual anti-bullying programme for Hertfordshire Constabulary. Working in secondary schools with over 10000 students since the beginning of the project, the programme has encouraged awareness of different forms of bullying and practical ways of coping with and making bullying stop. The project has received national news coverage and been nominated for awards.

Case Study 2

Big Lottery – Go! Film and Drama - Create Network worked with Tilehouse Counselling to bid for and deliver a Big Lottery-funded 3 year programme of extensive film and drama-based projects across Hertfordshire. The programme involved working with thousands of young people from schools and colleges to create innovative and inspiring creative projects.

Case Studies for Third Sector


 

Case Study 1

 

A local branch of a National Charity contacted us about training their volunteers to undertake outreach work.  After consulting key stakeholders and understanding more about the change that was being required and the audience, we designed an interactive and thought provoking workshop.  The approach tackled the behavioural and practical considerations of the changes required, and respected the varied emotional responses that the change in services provoked in the diverse group of volunteers.   The workshop combined psychological models, team coaching, art, music, movement, theatre and facilitated discussion.  The workshop was seen to be very different to other training programmes they had completed and was rated very highly by all participants and the contracting client.

Case Study 2

Various – including Charity Technologies Trust/Timebank/Diana Award. We have worked with a number of major charities to design and deliver bespoke workshops covering skills and themes including video production and filmmaking techniques, public speaking, animation, documentary-making, interviewing for film.

Case Study 3

Carers in Hertfordshire, a charity dedicated to helping carers of all ages to find information and support, approached us in 2012 to create a short film about the role of carers and the importance of peer-led carer support groups. Working with key stakeholders within the organisation, and from affiliated community groups, the film is used across Hertfordshire to promote the work and successes of the organisation.

Case Studies for Individuals


 

Case Study 1

 

A Create Network career coach worked with a client who was going through a time of transition.  She was in the process of leaving a management role and had some thoughts and ideas on setting up her own business.  The coaching programme was designed to meet her needs in summarising how her personality, skills, interests and experience would be relevant in her proposed business plan; to engage her mentally and emotionally for the change and new business start-up, and to provide advice, encouragement and a plan for her to take the change forwards.  The programme combined psychometric feedback, visioning techniques, mapping activities, and planning sessions.  Since this time the client has made the transition and is providing programmes and work for her own clients as a consultant in her specialist field. “You have helped me turn a “I’m thinking about and maybe I could, into “I’m doing something about and yes I will”

 

Case Study 2

 

A Create Network career coach worked with a client who needed to reach some important decisions.  He enjoyed his current role in a large corporate organisation but did not feel fulfilled or stretched by the day to day nature of the work or the career path it provided.  He had the opportunity to re-train on a university course, to go back to a previous different job with greater financial reward or set himself up independently as a freelance specialist.  The coaching programme allowed the client the thinking space and opportunity to explore each option fully in relation to who they were, their ambitions, lifestyle, and motivations and to reach conclusions that they felt energised by and confident in.  The sessions used a range of activities, such as questionnaire feedback, profiling, mapping, projecting, drawing, networking and planning.
