''As MD and principle coach at PDG, I found Michael's help with senior management development and managing change at the RHA most refreshing. His course material is based on sound 'real world' principles. Delivery is comforting in its simplicity, empathy and effectiveness. But most importantly the training relates to the job in hand meaning the days spent learning translate into quick wins once back in the office.''
Peter Shakespear, Head of Publications, Road Haulage Association.
'I participated in coaching sessions led by Sarah Shafi over a period of about 6 months. This was at a stage in my career where I was reviewing the next steps in my career pathway and exploring how to move forward in a way that really utilises my natural skills and preferred working styles. I found the sessions extremely helpful in facilitating reflection on progress and planning for my future. They enabled me to understand myself better and to be far more focused in my future career planning. I felt empowered to make some important decisions and take some important ‘next steps’. It was a thoroughly positive experience.'
Geraldine Sands, Assistant Director of Nursing; NHS England
" The online Leadership Academy was our way of doing something very different, because we traditionally offered a high volume of classroom courses. We wanted people in our change programme to recognise that things are changing at Sainsbury’s. People are telling us that they’re stunned by the site. They’re finding the content challenging, spiky and useful and they’re saying that it’s a much simpler way of learning something new than buying a book. The level of engagement is very high and it’s great to see people so energized about something new. "
Andrew Bull, Learning & Development Manager, Sainsbury’s.
" There is now a shared understanding of what “good” looks like, in terms of the behaviours that reflect the values that Atos wants to promote; more consistency, and a better understanding of how to achieve the business goals. There is also recognition that at the heart of all learning there is an individual effort and responsibility which will lead to greater career opportunities and personal growth. Consequently, managers are taking more responsibility for their own learning and actively visiting the online management forum for further learning. "
Marie-Pierre Gouaux, Head of Learning & Development, Atos Origin.
