I found the experience of being coached extremely positive, not only did it help me to identify, frame and clarify key personal development objectives but also offered practical tools, techniques and suggestions to achieve them. Working with my coach has materially improved my ability to empower, develop and challenge my team, and myself, to become a better leader. The results of his coaching have been evident to myself, my team and colleagues. In particular, my relationship with my manager has dramatically improved which has enabled us to work much more effectively together to the benefit of the business. My coach’s objective approach enabled me to see a clearer path in solving leadership issues and achieving my personal development goals. I believe that the techniques and approaches practiced and developed with him will enable me to continue to improve, even at after the coaching programme ends.
