Gill was enthusiastic and read the mood of the group well with the right amount of listing and probing as required. She worked hard with us managing to appear a fellow team member rather than just a facilitator. A skill I appreciated and rarely witnessed on other courses I have attended
I found the chance to step back and reflect honestly on my own behaviour and the behaviour of others in the workplace incredibly useful. The coaching sessions allowed me to learn not only about leadership but also myself as a leader
Gill worked for us on both designing and delivering a Management Development Programme for our team leaders. In my view Gill is streets ahead of any other management development consultant I have used before. Gill has wonderful way of being able to challenge teams / delegates without being confrontational I believe she has created a long term enthusiasm and desire within my teams for self development and improved team performance
Gill helped to clarify the challenges I was facing and how to identify the aspects of the tasks that made them challenging. This then made it much more straight forward to deal with the effectively and appropriately. I am really glad I participated in these sessions.
Over the past 4 years we have had almost 40 managers and team leaders pass through Gill's ILM programmes - every one of these has commented on Gill's enthusiasm, subject knowledge and tireless ability to make things 'real'. Gill has also designed and run courses in response to urgent business issues where we were looking for important changes in attitude, business alignment and productivity.
The use of professional Role Players was ground breaking inspiring and effective. Through them I was able to coach my own underperformers and overcome real barriers to communication in order to identify and address root causes that resulted in poor performance. As soon as I left the session I immediately put what I learned into practise. The results were astounding. I am truly grateful for the training and development that is being provided.
I have always found Gill to be flexible, organised and efficient in the design and delivery of our training. We receive excellent post course evaluations from our people on the courses they attend. She is proactive in her approach and always delivers on the timescales agreed. I would not hesitate to recommend Gill to work with a company in its delivery of its people development strategy
Gill is supremely professional and has a sound understanding of business dynamics. She delivers exactly what the client wants by careful project management and interviewing key stakeholders her training style is flexible and she has a real credibility with the audience
Gill brought a fresh approach to design of her training and was able to pick up vague ideas and transform them into real solutions. Gill was easy to work with and able to gear her delivery to the specific needs of our managers
From our first meeting Gill made me really think about what I wanted and helped me put structure and focus around my varied and busy workloads. Gill is really easy to talk to and helped me recognise some subconscious uncertainties which I didn’t even realise existed. Gill has helped me recognise my strengths and helped reinforce my confidence which will be invaluable in my career and personal life.
Gill introduced different techniques and models into the sessions which I was able to refer back to and use day to day. The sessions helped me reflect on and challenge learned behaviours, and made me more confident in my own abilities, and in managing difficult situations. I have since been successful in obtaining a more senior role, and drawing on what I learned through Gill's sessions contributed to this success.
