    Being a Leader - "How to Transform your Leadership Style" & "Coaching as a Leadership Style" - part of the "How to..." Series

    Stefan M. Managing Director

    "I never really classed myself as a leader - more of team worker, but now I know when to flex my style. Great courses, interesting content and the exercises made me dig deep!"

    Quality and Value Combined - MBTI Team Profile & Feedback & Company-wide Subscription to Courses

    Company Size - 14 employees

    Multiple subscriptions helped a video production company to develop its employees, from the two Directors and two Supervisors to ten fairly new employees, mainly recent graduates and administrative employees.

    The "Build It" Series was terrific! Three Course "Build It" Bundle.

    Solopreneur - in the first year of business

    I feel as though I've been liberated. I put so much thought into processes, systems, and marketing for my consultancy - it's all been about 'just getting on with it', that I had neglected my own behaviour and how I needed to develop myself to reach peak performance. The coaching really helped, much more than I'd thought. Thank you for putting this together in such a clear format for someone as busy as myself!

    Career Beliefs Inventory & Feedback, "Managing your Career & Progression" Course & Two Coaching Sessions

    Course + Coaching + TLC = A Happy Customer

    Joanna was one of our first on-line course participants and even though we'd piloted the course, we were keen to hear her thoughts. She needed some support after being out of the workplace for a while, so we worked with her to understand her goals. Our career coach understood her needs and ensured Joanna was on track a month after the coaching had finished. Our early bird course offer and coaching discount was a great help too. (July 2017)
