Cognacity and Crisis
Cognacity was formed out of crisis.
We started our business in the same month as Lehman brothers went bust, working with clients dealing with the fallout of the financial crash. We created our resilience workshops in response to the Deepwater Horizon disaster, and we have been coaching leaders and first responders through crises such as the Grenfell Disaster.
Our team of expert psychologists is here to help your people to adapt quickly to changing circumstances whilst maintaining resilience and wellbeing.
What our clients are saying about us
“Cognacity’s performance under pressure workshops have radically changed the way our employees think at Octopus.”
Head of People, Octopus Group
“Fantastic and engaging day that flew by. The course offered exactly the sort of practical advice eneded with the right balance of theory, examples and individual application through the 21 day challenge. We’re always willing to talk to prospective Cognacity clients about how impressed we were with the programme and the approach to working with us”
Leadership and Talent Executive
“Cognacity’s Performing Under Pressure workshop is the most sought after training session in Octopus! As soon as we organise a workshop it’s fully booked within minutes. We have found colleagues across Octopus talking about marginal gains and sharing marginal gains so it has now become part of our fabric.”
Head of People Investment Business
“We recently rolled out Cognacity’s Resilience: Performance Under Pressure programme and it was the most popular course we’ve ever run here at BDO.”
