At Inspiring Works, we are committed to developing high performing and resilient individuals, teams and organisations to achieve better outcomes, maximise potential and deliver sustainable business growth. We specialise in emotional intelligence and resilience, and work with public sector organisations including the NHS, local authorities and schools, corporate organisations and charities.
Three principles underpin our thinking and approach:
We are enough, and we want to be more.
The only person we can change is ourselves.
As leaders, we set the context for people can flourish.
These principles and all the tools and approaches we use are evidence-based to achieve great outcomes, both in terms of performance and wellbeing.

"Thank you to Ingrid for delivering a session around emotional intelligence, which is imperative for entrepreneurs and business owners in order to drive their business forward even when faced with difficult decisions. Ingrid’s workshop had the perfect balance of theory and practical tools to help support business owners, her interaction and hands on approach with the audience left everyone feeling engaged and motivated. I came with away with a much better understanding and some tangible techniques to use to increase my EI. Thanks Ingrid!" Melissa Hulme, Entrepreneurial Development Manager, RBS
"I highly recommend Ingrid. She has a varied and effective set of coaching strategies that have been so valuable in allowing me to really identify the key issues going on in my mind and focus on action which will move me and my schools nearer to our goals..."
Gratitude and recognition impacts more on people’s motivation and drive than any pay rise. And isn’t just a fad – the evidence is in the science. It encourages greater activity in the hypothalamus part of the brain, which controls essential bodily functions like eating, drinking and sleeping. It helps us to put problems into perspective and so people tend to be less stressed and experience less anxiety and depression. When we recognise and value people, we encourage the release of the hormone dopamine, a feel-good hormone connected with our motivation and drive. When we give recognition, it also encourages the release of oxytocin, which is connected with our empathic and caring nature, which also helps us to feel good and positive about ourselves.
