This course is well worthwhile. The coaching session is something I am reflecting on every day. It provided new information and a new way of looking at things, while teaching me more about the things I was aware of. Most training programs tell you something you already know and this was designed to tell you something you didn't know.

The individual sessions have been really beneficial for me and I have learned new things about myself in each session. The learning is simply practical.

I gave the leadership team a run down on my 2 days with you and we have agreed to completely restructure our monthly meeting to ensure the time spent is effective, stimulating and real issues are addressed. After I left on Tuesday, I had 3 new words that came to mind: Practice ….. experiment….. perfect / improve. Thanks again for 2 very informative and rewarding days.

I really enjoyed the session and all the insights that Paul shared with us. He made me feel very comfortable and open to sharing experiences.

I learned how to create team meetings that really engaged my team, not just run meetings that met my immediate needs. Now, the team feels they really get something from when we meet.

It was brilliantly presented for both work and life. I was able to improve the outlook of how I was perceived by others by making subtle changes that realistically have a major impact. The facilitators were very passionate and thought provoking.

" It was fantastic ... a very collaborative and fruitful approach to strategic planning. I have appreciated being part of this process, and particularly seeing the culmination of many different colleagues' perspectives being brought into a more concise and effective set of objectives. Paul's overall approach to collaboration and planning would be beneficial to many colleagues at all different stages of their career."

It was motivating, inspiring, interesting, confronting and I believe we all have learned greatly and will become more self aware and better leaders from this experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, probably one of the best courses I've been on and I don't normally say that. Paul was a fantastic facilitator.

Paul facilitated the group very well. Paul managed and navigated us through it in a way so that everyone was heard and it was a very safe environment ... The role playing was exceptionally helpful as it helped me understand the situation from both people's perspective.

Damien Menanteau Program Participant

The program was interesting and very positive. The group was surprised by the outcome. The approach that Paul used for the group to engage in the task and communicate was not confronting, very inviting and inclusive, for all group members to participate. The actions that were decided are being implemented now.

Thank you very much Paul for the excellent workshop yesterday. You created a most inclusive and safe environment in which everyone could (and did) contribute positively. The day certainly helped take our effectiveness and cohesion as a team to the next level.

Because of the program I am really aware that I was immediately able to demonstrate doing things differently the next day. I found it interesting to have conversations with others I don't work with and who didn't know each other. The activities weren't kindergarten. Paul and Richard were great and I can see they work well together. It was one of the best programs I've been to and fun at the same time.

Great course that was insightful, engaging and interesting. The skills I've learnt are realistic to put into practice to enable me to better my skills.

Insightful, confronting at times, but very valuable time with our leadership team, skilfully facilitated and guided by Paul. The immediate result is a stronger connection between us - being vulnerable in front of each other breaks some barriers."

Sharon Program Participant

I valued the approach of learning about how others think ... It enabled me to put a more emotional understanding into a person's behaviour ... These concepts allow me to think of a different way of delivering the message, knowing it will more likely be more effective.

Program Participant IQVIA

It was a great day, Paul is a fantastic teacher, very knowledgeable and it was a really valuable day spent. I walked away from the day with clarity on what I need to focus on as a leader - and a clear goal on what I need to achieve next. Paul's ability to pick up and spend time on areas based on the energy in the room [was especially helpful]. It's a very impressive ability! I have found the program very enlightening, as a leader who has recently grown a new team - it was invaluable to have the feedback and perceptions of my current leadership style provided by my new team. Based on this feedback, I have been able to have open discussions with my management team and had immediate success in changing my approach and focussing on leading "above the line".

It was great to have a whole day with Paul - away from the office and all of the distractions. I learnt a lot about myself, and was amazed about how much Paul could understand me so quickly based on our discussions. I have incorporated some of the learnings immediately into my thinking and day to day work.

Rick Cooper Program Participant, Stockland

For me, the course created a whole new way of relating to people - whether it be in a meeting or on a one-to-one basis. The whole course was packed with good information and was good fun.

" Professionalism, frankness, openness. Comfort and safety in the environment. Calmness. Impacting, uncomfortable, and effective. Any change in any system results in discomfort. Paul's session provided the tools and awareness to sit in the discomfort and know that it's okay. To stop the "rescuer" mentality so often present in leaders of "fixing all the problems". Paul's facilitated session provided me with the tools and awareness to take a different perspective on challenges within the team and organisation."

Even before the course, it kicked off my thinking about how I could make our monthly team meetings more engaging. I have a meeting tomorrow with 12 members of my team and I plan to use the Team Goals and the Team Norms kites that were taught in the program. I feel confident that using these tools with my team will engage them and get us to a positive outcome.

Having undergone the TLC debrief I am more aware how and why I react to certain scenarios and how I can use my TLC learning to better approach situations in the workplace. Paul's coaching has really helped me pause and think. I have now fundamentally changed the way I conduct conversations with direct reports. I recommend this coaching!

The Manager as a Facilitator course shifts you from being a manager who simply directs staff to get things done, to becoming a thought leader, an influencer and connector of people and ideas so that both your staff and the organisation thrive and grow! The course is packed with great tools, strategies and relational learning so that you walk away with not only a new tool-kit but new understandings of yourself as a manager and how you can improve what you do.Add testimonial

Very insightful, provoking self-reflection and increased collaboration with the rest of the team ... Paul's running of the session was brilliant, he is very experienced and manages to drive the discussions in a way that really encourages participation and sharing.

The whole program was intensive and relevant. It was great to really be able to condense and use the methods in a practical way, for example; the different types of meetings, what type of meeting you would hold and when, and setting up a strategy around what information is viewed and when.

The other big things were getting group decisions. Being aware of what the group wants and getting them to be a part of that decision, rather than dictating. Usually you are getting told to do it and the decision is already made. This program has a very different emphasis on being more inclusive.

To find myself on the leadership wheel was great. This gave me insight into how I can improve as a leader, it also helped me with strategies for one of my team ... I gained confidence in how to approach my leadership in a new way which helped to reenergise me ... I think all leaders could benefit from Paul's approach and teaching."
