What Clients say about us
Our consulting clients tell us that they value our flexible approach
and commitment to customizing material to fit with the organization's
values and HR practices, rather than imposing our own models and values.
They also commend our ability to facilitate in a way that matches the
approach of the organization. Often our program participants are surprised
to find we are not employees.
Our coaching clients tell us they appreciate our sensitivity to their
needs and our insight into their situation, plus our challenge to them
to step out of their comfort zones and our support while they practice
We only occasionally solicit testimonials, so most of these comments
have come to us informally via email or voicemail. We like these because
they are the most genuine types of feedback.
"What we appreciate the most is your fit with the company
and our values, your flexibility and your no fuss approach. Thanks for
being so easy to work with."
Leadership Development Manager, Major Financial
"Just a note to let you know S [Finance Manager] is really
pleased with the outcome of the coaching and enjoyed working with you.
Great Feedback!! Thanks again for being so flexible to support us and
S with the coaching.
HR Development Consultant, Major Financial Services
"The program made me focus on scanning the big picture rather
than be distracted by the interesting day-to-day stuff and thanks to
your prompting, it looks like we'll save a million dollars next year
MD of Superannuation Administration Company
We have already started and are setting up a 'correspondence station'.
You will be proud.
I am slowly knocking off my initiatives and find that I am doing
all my work AND not stressing out. I will be spring-cleaning this week
to ensure I make productive use of desk space.
I told all my friends how refreshing your presence was, so if you
ever needed external validation that you are doing the right thing,
there it is. You made me view my workload from a different perspective
and I mentioned this in our meeting this morning to my managers, who
liked the fact that their 'back-end' was becoming more robust.
I hope you have a wonderful Easter, and bunnies hide lots of chocolate
eggs about your home."
Sales Account Manager, International Computing
"Many thanks for your input, I will incorporate your suggestions.
Again, many thanks for your professional expertise over the course of
this conference and I look forward to working with you again."'
Risk Management Manager, Banking Corporation
"It is easy to have dreams and ambitions which just sit out
there; but unless we connect them with our current reality they do not
Sharon's direct approach, combined with sensitivity and highly
refined facilitation skills, brought my goals and objectives into sharp
relief. I not only clarified my goals and ambitions, but initiated the
necessary action to move along the way. The key goals and objectives
which I wanted to achieve from Sharon's workshop have been significantly
I do not hesitate to recommend Sharon to anyone who intends to
translate their dreams into reality."
Managing Partner, International Consulting Firm
"I would just like to extend my thanks to you in regard to
the recent Leadership Development programme that I attended. Having
been the manager of a small team for some 6 years, I had been looking
forward to attending the course to review and revise my leadership and
management techniques and to "brush up" on my skills. I was
in for a real surprise! I found the course much more challenging than
that, with the exercises structured so that I was having to think outside
of my usual 'comfort zone' and I found I was continually questioning
the way I had approached management and leadership in the past. I gained
some valuable tools with which to improve my performance, and the performance
of those that I supervise
Talking to my colleagues who were also on the course, it soon
became clear to me that we all got something different out of the programme,
dependant on how long we had been in our present roles. Each of us agreed
that the lessons learnt were invaluable. Further, once I was back at
work the skills that I had learnt during the course of the programme
had important practical applications.
Sharon, it is clear to me that this course has helped me achieve
my objectives. Your training style is easy going and fun, and it is
clear that you have superior knowledge of the fundamentals of training
adults. The course content was exactly what I needed, and seemed to
be tailor made for someone in a middle management position like mine.
Thank you once again Sharon. It really was a great learning experience!"
State Claims Manager SA, Insurance Company
This is my first day back after the weekend, and like you, I would
have loved to be a fly on the wall on Monday!
I did hear that your [Team Building] workshop was the subject of a great
chat by some people who went on a skiing trip that night, and the feedback
from that was that they really enjoyed it - it was fun, helpful, and
We are having the group workshop today, and from what I've heard so
far, the main topic will be how to apply the learning from Friday. Sharon,
thank you so very much for the material you sent, it is very helpful,
and I hope to squeeze it into today's workshop.
Thanks again to you both for your time on Friday at this first workshop!
