One really BIG problem facing most businesses around the world is the lack of action taken back in the workplace. Published research from executive business schools and independent surveys show that 6 months after workplace training only 50% of learning is transferred into action, and at least 80% of the innovative ideas gained during leadership courses, is lost.

We think this is such a waste!

As an award-winning Learning Specialist, Consultant & Trainer for over 34 years, Józefa Fawcett, Chief Learning Architect at JFI works hard to address this problem by continuously supporting the development of managerial & leadership capability, professional HRM, L&D and business excellence.

For business training to be seen as making a real difference, there needs to be three critical elements in place;  these are simple to say, yet difficult to achieve:

1. Effective training design, content and delivery
2. Efficient use of new learning ideas in the workplace
3. Appropriate mindset (managers and leaders) to enable and support changes in practice

Create the right learning environment at work and you’ll enable your people managers and team leaders to do their jobs to the best of their ability, which in turn means they’ll increase productivity, support change and improve quality of operational services.  Manage them well, let them demonstrate their potential and you’ll feed your talent management pipeline and produce future executive leaders that are able to manage high performing teams.


We work closely with our clients to understand your people, capability and business excellence learning needs and how these relate to your strategic priorities.

We develop a strategic training plan, tailored to reinforce your values and incorporating our own unique range of traditional, blended and online learning options, to provide a relevant and high impact learning experience.

We review your HR, learning & training capacity to assess how equipped it is to scale up and roll out your training plan.

We support the people in your organisation who train, coach, lead and facilitate teams, our focus being on areas such as people management, employee engagement, customer experience, quality improvement and digital transformation.

We maximise your investment in training and we work with you to create real, tangible results that support your business and its growth.
