Event description


Linguistic Profiling can help you explore the hidden depths of communication styles in the workplace.

In collaboration with the School of Pharmacy, the Linguistic Profiling for Professionals (LiPP) unit at the University of Nottingham is pleased to offer a range of communication consultancy packages, to small-to-medium (SME) sized health care organisations in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Support Available

Our consultancy packages are designed to improve communication between staff and practitioners in your organisation, and with any external stakeholders. We offer training in the following areas:

  • Communication to be an effective leader
  • Managing difficult conversations
  • Effective meeting training
  • Group dynamics and team-building
  • Resolving miscommunication and conflict
  • Effective communication with clients and providers
  • Digital communication analysis
  • Profiling email effectiveness
  • Interpreting staff feedback

What to Expect

Following an initial training needs analysis, our team of linguistics experts will design a bespoke training package to meet your specific communication requirements.

Consultation options include:

  • Linguistic analysis of interactions between staff members
  • Individual communication coaching with you or members of your team
  • Analysis of written or digital data (e.g. health information posters/leaflets, email communication, staff feedback)

Our consultancies are delivered over a two day period specified by the healthcare organisation and are delivered on site. Typically one full day will be required for data collection, with a further day assigned for feedback. The results of the consultation can be delivered as an executive summary, a presentation or as a small workshop with staff members.

Who Should Apply?

The LiPP consultation package is available to any Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire healthcare organisation that fulfils SME criteria:

  • Fewer than 250 employees within the organisation
  • An annual turnover of less than €50 million

Availability for the consultation is limited, and therefore sign-up is restricted to one space per organisation. If you are unsure whether your organisation is eligible please contact:
