Six months later I can honestly say Sara has enhanced by leadership and management skills. Sara’s flexibility allowed me to bring the real challenges I was facing on a day to day basis to the table, Sara will listen, make open observations, these were discussed and the future actions explored. These would then be into practice in the real world and reviewed again when we met up.
Our time spent was beneficial both for me as an individual, the team I lead and the business I am employed in. I would highly recommend Sara and there was no role play!!!
Sara is easy to talk to, helpful and supportive and makes you feel at ease straight away encouraging any questions, putting concerns to rest making a positive out of what may be considered a negative. The team have come out of the workshops buzzing, singing Sara’s praises making other staff look forward to their sessions. There have been nothing but positive comments, my team feel good about themselves reminding them that they’re very employable. We’re in great hands to deliver a really good CV at the end of the process.
I look forward to working with Sara over the next couple of months in my journey to finding another role. I would definitely recommend Sara to anybody who needs an expert to assist with CV writing, interview techniques and to build confidence in finding a new job when faced with a redundancy situation.

This year I completed the Personal Development Plan which was a one year plan and was the best training I have received in my 15years of being at Stannah.
Sara has taught me so much about myself and how to deal, work and communicate with difficult people.
Two things that have stuck in my mind is that "behaviour breeds behaviour" and if it doesn't concern me do not get involved.
I feel I am a better person since completing this PDP.
Sara she is a very enthusiastic and practical trainer and an insightful coach. I engaged Sara to analyse and feedback on the results for 360 management appraisals. She followed up each initial session with a series of coaching sessions - which had specific objectives and we were extremely impressed with the outcomes. We have now extended the project to other managers in the business.
One of Sara's major strengths is her ability to adapt her style according to the coachee and the objectives. This means that she can work effectively with a wide variety of people.
We have been able to measure tangible benefits of the programmes in terms of increased production and quality. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sara.
Different team members had different areas in which they could benefit from Sara's training. Having discussed my requirements Sara tailored a course that was both inclusive for the entire team but also focused to improve specific skill areas for individuals.
Sara gave a compelling and effective training day in a very professional manner. Sara was able to engage all team members and weave in to the day a mix of elements focused to improve the skill areas we had identified. This is particularly impressive with a technical IT team who can, quite frankly, be geeks!!
Further to this initial training day I engaged Sara again, to carry out 1-1 coaching with specific team members focusing on their specific needs.
I have no hesitation in recommending Sara in providing high quality and effective training and coaching!
