John Kotters Eight Step process for Successful Change

 

“Great – insightful and practical approach which will allow me to use techniques and tools when delivering training in the future.”


“Gained every thing I needed and loads more, extremely impressed with the course.”


“The quality of feedback was excellent and was delivered in an inspiring way which built confidence amongst the group.”


“Thoroughly enjoyed the training event, I left feeling inspired and motivated to review and improve some of the standard training packages we have , but also to ensure we set up systems to capture and share all the great material that has been developed through this course.”


“Good level of interaction. Not too formal – good atmosphere = good interaction. Plenty of activity to break it up and cement understanding.”


“Gail was patient and thorough. She managed the group well and was supportive and gave excellent feedback.”


“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.”


“The different models were presented in slightly different methods, this kept it fresh and enjoyable.”
