Alison was very knowledgeable and engaging. I liked the analysis of our own leadership style and thinking about how to improve our effectiveness score.
This was an excellent training course and was delivered brilliantly. I was engaged the whole time and I have really taken on board good tips and strategies that I can use in my practice. Thank you.
David James was great, the pace of the training and the activities planned worked very well and there was a direct link to how to use everything in practice in our own environment. I was engaged and interested during the whole day. Excellent work
The breakout rooms were really helpful for learning, everyone came from different companies/experience levels/team structures and it was important to hear that the challenges are broadly similar. Gave us ample opportunity to learn from one another, and David (James) was great at consolidating that in the bigger group.
I think the day was very well structured and planned. I felt like the time flew by!
I enjoyed all of it and find it very interesting. The perception cycle was good, doing the DISC Analysis and learning about the Ego States was also informative.
