How The Alternative Board helped JudgeService – Part 2

The leadership team at JudgeService Research have been to boot camp!

This photo was taken before the coronavirus pandemic.

JudgeService have decided to invest in some tried and tested methods to improve our A-Game.

The Alternative Board or “Tab” is a company that supports business owners in finding the best methods to take their business to the next level.

 “We want our business support to help you fall back in love with your business and to help you meet your personal vision of success.”

– The Alternative Board

JudgeService was coached by Andrew Jackson on two occasions at Rudding Park in Harrogate, just down the road from our offices.

Rudding Park is a luxury hotel set in 300 acres of beautiful woodlands and gardens. They have won countless awards and boast an exquisite 18-hole golf course.

Andrew Jackson has over 30-years of experience with a career which has sent him all over the globe. At The Alternative Board, he is using his expertise to help local businesses succeed and grow to their full potential.

This is what some of the team thought about their sessions with Andrew Jackson at TAB:

Neil Addley – Founder and Managing Director.

“It was interesting to really appreciate the real difference between dominance, influencers, steadiness, and conscientiousness (DiSC).

“In order for the team to move forward to deliver our ambitious growth plans it is important we understand how we all tick.  The DiSC profile session, which Andrew Jackson from The Alternative Board delivered, really effectively did just that.  It held a mirror up to our own profile but usefully gave us a roadmap to encourage better and more effective communication between our leadership team.”

Chelsea Heffernan – Executive Assistant

“I think a huge take out for me would have to be that the DiSC provides common languages that help teams understand one another and work better together. Individuals process information and handle tasks differently to how I do, and that’s something I haven’t thought about before. Projects and tasks need more than one way of looking at how it’s going to get done and it’s about playing to the strengths of individuals.

“This will drive the business forward and ultimately create an atmosphere of support and mutual cooperation towards the 5-year plan, goals and objectives for the future, for not just the leadership team, but the wider team.

“It was a great session of self-reflection on my working approach.”

Nick Dawson – Account Director

“It was superb insight and demonstrated how best to tailor our approach to ensure we engage with colleagues as much as possible. It was also quite spooky how accurate my personal profile was.

“It creates an opportunity going forward to work with our teams in a different way using a more personalized approach based on the colleagues’ profile. This should help drive the business forward by getting the best out of everyone and creating new opportunities.”

Stuart White – Operations Director

“I personally found the value in understanding my own character and weaknesses and how to improve on those areas in my day to day interactions, not only with the leadership team but also with all of our colleagues.

“As all of the leadership team were involved in the session, I do believe we all learnt how we interact with others and how we can be mindful of others’ feelings.  Within a business environment, this should allow for much more clarity and avoidance of conflict as well as lead to much more efficiency in all of our interactions.  It can only be good for the company.”

As JudgeService Research Ltd grows as a company we hope that the entire team can take on board what they have learnt with Andrew Jackson at The Alternative Board and that we continue to move forward on a future that only looks bright!
