The Hive

What is the Hive?

The Hive is a support network and platform for business women, women entrepreneurs, women in leadership roles, women who are looking for inspiration to continue their creative and productive ideas and any other women who feel that they might benefit of actively participating in this group.

Being part of this networking group we can call upon different strengths of others too and we will then network with women we actually know something about. We can then offer something in return of our strength, service or product, which will encourage mutual sharing and supporting each other.

How can that help a woman?

Feeling less isolated
Gaining more confidence
Getting business advice
Getting out of your own ‘rut’
Getting inspiration
Free advertising
Social Networking, such as Facebook

We can pass on our directory, such as who we have found helpful to work with or who worked for/with us. Somebody will always know somebody.

We aim to have some structure in every meeting and will have some time for ‘other stuff’ to talk about too. We will have themes for meetings, as we are all busy, so we’ll know what we will be attending and we will focus on the next theme also.

We encourage you to share advice, such as one women stated at the first meeting, that she has never advertised her business, in thirty years. Worth by mouth has been her strength. Which was helpful to hear for some other women.

We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting! Please invite your friends if you feel they want to be there too!

Please help us to support people who are affected by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on Saturday. As you know, the death toll continues to rise with 4,800 confirmed dead. The United Nations estimates that 8 million people have been affected throughout the country through lack of shelter, food and water, and access to medical care.

Progress and Present Solution Focused Team-building and Coaching Program

A few months I spoke at a conference organised by the Scottish Solution Focused Network about our Progress and Present Solution Focused Team-building and Coaching Program. The event was held at the Playfield Institute in Cupar, Fife, which is located within the Stratheden Hospital.
Training Days
Today the SSF Networking and Training day was hosted by Solution Ways and one of the topics we discussed today was how this PPSF-Program focuses on what is already working in a team/business and how to get your team/business to the next level. My clients find this program highly encourages their team and inspires the team to thrive rather than spending too much time on what is NOT working. When there is MORE focus on what IS working and this will be encouraged, improved and empowered, the outcome/goal is more likely to be successful. The progress can be measured, which will deliver evidence of improvement and success alike.

Solution Ways delivers programs in PPSF, which can totally be tailored to your company’s /team’s need.

Feel free to contact us to discuss the PPSF-Program further and get a quote.
