Driving Performance

Through Ownership, Influence and Behaviour Design

Jamie Dixon

Shaping Paths is a boutique management consultancy based in China and the UK and was founded by me, Jamie Dixon.

I’ve spent the last decade in China. I’ve seen huge, and sudden changes that have had massive benefits for society.

But I’ve also seen people being stretched trying to keep up with these changes. I’ve seen people develop health problems, burn out, and lose their financial stability due to the pace of change. I know there are many people out there who want to avoid these problems whilst optimising their performance.

I feel most fulfilled when I help people grow, make a bigger impact, and improve their health, all at the same time.

Coaching and Training  For Leaders, Teams and Individuals

I help my clients by designing and delivering practical learning solutions using my Shaping Paths Practical Training methodology based on my book “Shaping Paths – How to Design and Deliver Practical Training”. 

I start with a free Performance Consultation meeting to help clarify your goals and performance gaps and decide on the most practical solution going forward. Sometimes through this meeting we discover a solution that you can implement on your own without the need of my services, and that is fine.

My goal is to help you develop the mindset and skills to reach your goals and continue doing so after we’re done.

I help my clients using the following 3 solutions:

What My Clients Say

Jamie is an experienced corporate trainer who can win trust from client and audience easily base on his solid expertise, after cooperating with him on several training courses I found his bilingual language skills and training style also do help him a lot to reach into heart of Chinese trainees, and therefore obtaining nice training effect is a natural thing.

HR Manager, Power Management Company

Jamie is very good at understanding client’s needs and developing customized training programs. He cares about more than the “course” itself. He is very dedicated to improving the actual results – behavior change of the trainees, and in order to do that, he is willing to put in extra efforts. Trainees of our company refer to his course as “interesting, engaging, clear and helpful”.

HR Manager, High Tech Company

Jamie was the Lead Facilitator for A Learning Culture’s “One Team, One Goal” seminar – a full-day teambuilding and communication training event delivered to Medela, Inc. As a facilitator, Jamie was fantastic, delivering in Chinese with enthusiasm, clarity and charisma. As a business partner, he was a pleasure to work with at every stage of the project. Full of great ideas and passion for his work, Jamie comes with my highest regard and recommendation.

Founder, Consulting Company

Excellent! That is the word I would use to describe the training Jamie provided me and my staff. Well thought out, wonderfully executed and because of that, the time just flew by. Other training we have had in the past were boring, but with Jamie’s program, we were all encouraged to participate and ended it with a very positive experience and skills we could use the very next day.

General Manager, Healthcare Company

Jamie is a real professional with high level of accountability. My organization have two times cooperation with Jamie. One is hired Jamie as our trainer. His training is inspired and practical. The second time, we hired Jamie as the M.C of the Top Employers Certification Dinner. Both me and Jamie took a risk on this decision, and it turned out to be a very good one. Jamie’s excellent communication skill makes the whole dinner very smooth. I am sure that we will have more cooperation with Jamie.
