Useful understanding how clients will perceive the world and how we can adapt to their personality.
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.
Very good to add to an officer dealing with the public day-to-day.
Relaxed environment to share experiences/frustrations and learn how to cope/change behaviours.
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 :)
Wasn't sure if this would benefit me when I first heard about it. However I found it very relatable to my work/home life. I will definitely use the skills learnt in the future.
Motivational course (Coaching skills) which makes you want to put it into practise. Ideal for those who manage people and need advice.
It is really good if you struggle with giving others feedback and having difficult conversations. Come with your examples!
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.
Eye opening, relevant and easily applied to operational policing. Really well presented and a great atmosphere created.
An excellent session and I was amazed at how much of the obvious solutions that we were not doing.
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.
Very informative, interactive and engaging. You feel involved and supported to learn and develop. Great workshop.
A really practical and informative session that is full of tips for the workplace and self management. Came in feeling overwhelmed… I noticed that I felt much calmer by the end of today - back in control. ...Brilliant.
A long day but some very clever working practices are shown. Nice that it's not a 'cookie cutter' workshop. Thank-you!
Empowering, challenging and very helpful. Really enjoyed the day and most importantly had fun!
Very good pace - great balance of presentations and exercises. Took too much from today to fit on one post-it! THANK-YOU :)
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.
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.
Jonathan is very engaging and really makes you think about yourself and the positive changes you can make to help yourself and others.
Interesting and informative (Team Resilience workshop). Well delivered and included lots of new content that I hadn't learnt previously. Very enjoyable - liked the KTS - ii model.
Very valuable & though-provoking. Some quite simple but useful tools/techniques to take onboard.
I would have no problem recommending Jonathan. He is a pleasure to work with as: he’s quick to learn and question; tailors his approach to each specific situation; helped to guide my decision making from initial idea generation through to action; delivered exceptional workshops, which are enjoyable, inclusive, fair and at the necessary times direct; and, has helped me to achieve way beyond what I thought was possible from group exercises. Highly highly recommended.
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.
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.
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.
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 enlightening and informative. Presented in a light hearted, fun and open format. Encouraged interaction with all. Really enjoyable session!
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.
