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!
