John Kotters Eight Step process for Successful Change

 

“Gail pitched this workshop at a good level focussing on assisting the Leadership team on how we move into a coaching culture rather than just  “How to Coach”.  Felt this was a valuable session in terms of aligning the teams expectations. Looking forward to the next session.”


“I have walked away from the course more confident at training, understand what I can do better, the tools I can use. Looking forward to the 3rd day in June”


“Really good mix of activites, excellent interactions from group and trainers. Pace and level were pitched well throughout the 2 days”


“Gail was exceptional, very welcoming and easy going. made my experience very enjoyable.”


“Excellent course, interesting and relevant and good group interaction.”
