I was very pleased with this event, and think it went very well. Jonathan did a good job facilitating, there was lots of positive discussion and energy and a perhaps surprisingly high degree of agreement on the overall vision! Thanks very much for all your work organising this, and for the careful planning which made it such a success.
I had the pleasure of working with Jonathan recently whilst co facilitating a leadership development course. Jonathan is blessed with a highly creative, imaginative and energetic style. Whilst working with Jonathan I observed him use both theory and practice well when working with clients, I also observed that Jonathan has a natural coaching nature which commands strong rapport by those who work with him. I would recommend Jonathan to future clients.
Really helpful workshop - thank-you ! The team will be empowered to understand the needs of our clients better and therefore develop and improve our service.
A long day but some very clever working practices are shown. Nice that it's not a 'cookie cutter' workshop. Thank-you!
An excellent insight into the behaviour traits of my team and why. Prior to the meeting, I thought it would be a waste of my time !
Loved the idea of personalising your approach and time depending on who you are. Brilliant to give time and thought to the biggest thing that will impact our success - our use of time! Jonathan is the perfect guide.
Really valuable, I have time to review my behaviour and what I need to change and focus on.
It has been a game changer for us as a team. There have been times when things have gone wrong and we haven't been quite sure why. The workshop helped to identify those things and has given us the tools to fix them. It has made us much better at celebrating our differences rather than being tripped up by them. My main take-away is that with trust you can push through just about any challenge together - and it was especially helpful to identify the things that build trust and the things that break them.
This course helps you better understand the mechanisms behind what makes you tick, and what you can do to better utilise the time you have.
Having used various similar systems such as Myers Briggs in the past with interesting but not wildly helpful results, we were really delighted with the detail, accuracy and valuable insight that you and the Keirsey Temperament Sorter brought to our working relationship. We had been struggling in our team to work as powerfully together as we knew we were really capable of, because there were some quite fundamental aspects to our styles that we needed to understand, consider and accommodate. Knowing the results and having your brilliant guidance and suggestions through the process has made us profoundly more effective and created a much happier office environment.
Jonathan has thought deeply and read widely on team work - as a result he is bursting with useful insights that means you're sure to take away useful ideas that will be immediately applicable to your situation.
Main take-away: When receiving feedback, take responsibility to facilitate the person giving the feedback - i.e. don't be too passive.
As you're working through the material, keep picturing the real life situations in which you will be applying these principles - so it doesn't stay merely in the abstract world of ideas. My main takeaway was: Be specific in feedback.
I have worked with Jonathan as a personal coach since early 2012. I am a firm believer in investing in continuous professional and personal development. Working with Jonathan has taken me leaps and bounds further forward in understanding myself, my working style and how I can be more effective and more fulfilled at work. I have developed far more since working with Jonathan than I have done relying on workplace-based support in the past. Jonathan is an expert in his field with the qualifications and years of experience to back it up, and this comes through very strongly in working with him. I have recommended Jonathan to colleagues since I started working with him and shall continue to do so.
Useful understanding how clients will perceive the world and how we can adapt to their personality.
It is a good course, especially if you haven’t taken any course related to time management. It goes beyond the usual time management techniques, but starts with an inner focus approach, this is foundational.
Jonathan was engaged to work with my senior leadership team of 12 people over the course of twelve months. I found him very knowledgeable and attentive, listening carefully to what we were seeking to achieve, but contributing his own ideas too. He carefully involved me in the planning of a series of workshops which he delivered professionally and flexibly. Colleagues in the team really valued his input and approach which added value to the team.
Very good trainer, felt very engaged and took away a lot. Good workbook, a lot better than being given pieces of paper - I got more out of it :)
Thanks for today, really helpful stuff as ever. Great to see you playing so obviously to your strong suit too.
Working with Jonathan was a pleasure. He has an excellent manner, really knows his subject and is a fantastic listener. He very cleverly helps you to explore your ambitions and desires without ever leading you in a particluar direction. I was rather expecting to be told 'oh, you should do this or you should do that' and once found myself wondering what it was he was actually doing for me. I quickly realised that I had never achieved such clarity regarding myself and ambitions as I did with Jonathan. Everybody should have someone like Jonathan.
Jonathan quickly understood the issues and worked effectively with me towards finding the answers. Money very well spent by me to address important business challenges. Will use him again for my own work in the future. Book him now before it is too late !!
If you're considering this workshop, sign up! I felt really energised afterwards and was eager to use the new tools I had learnt.
I would like to recommend Jonathan as a great career/professional development Coach, which is something he did a lot during his time at HP. I was in touch with him at a time I was trying to make the transition from a Marketing Program manager role into my first Sales Management position. He really helped me to analyse my situation and then figure out how to move forwards - and I did indeed make a successful transition, with his help - but he also challenged me as a good Coach should, to think more broadly and approach my situation from different perspectives, try different techniques. He has a lot of experience in this area & I hope now others outside of HP will be able to benefit more from his coaching.
Jonathan provides the opportunity to discuss and share career related matters in an extremely helpful and practical way. I am sure that the results will continue to help impact my career development in the future.
Definitely worth attending, opens your eyes to new techniques, how you work, and your working mentality.
Jonathan came recommended to me and from my first contact I could see why. He took the time to listen and understand what we were trying to achieve, before making some useful suggestions, from overall vision and structure, to the finer details of the away-day, to ensure everything went smoothly. The tools and techniques Jonathan employed, together with his positive personal manner, kept the session involving very senior staff on track, and productive. I expect we will engage Jonathan again in the future and I've already recommended him to my colleagues.
If you want to learn how to save yourself from death by multi-tasking and get your life back, come on this course (Maximum Effectiveness).
Thank-you for an excellent day today... cant think of how we could have better started our time as a team together.
Jonathan enables me to think more clearly about my own business and be more resolute in making decisions. His approach is patient, gently probing and imaginative. He has lots of good tips and resources and a delightful manner to boot.
It makes you really think through what influences the way you manage time and teaches you great techniques to fit your own style of managing time better.
Thank-you for a great staff day..extremely illuminating..gave me a vocabulary to talk about the outworking of my temperament in my relationships with others...your extraordinary ability to ask the right questions that get us thinking along fresh lines. Superb.
