This content is not common sense, it's incredibly useful to understand and learn these (feedback & accountability) techniques.
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.
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.
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.
A deeper understanding of communication and adapting to different styles. Friendly, engaging.
Really makes you think about how you operate. Good leadership tips re success and purpose.
Hugely informative and even though I was sceptical at first, I felt that when we put the skills into practise it was effective
Very informative, interactive and engaging. You feel involved and supported to learn and develop. Great workshop.
Definitely worth attending, opens your eyes to new techniques, how you work, and your working mentality.
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.
Jonathan clearly has a grasp of the subject area (Creative thinking), and is able to deliver his message in a very entertaining way. I learnt lots of new tools, which I look forward to using when faced with the challenges that present in the future
Empowering, challenging and very helpful. Really enjoyed the day and most importantly had fun!
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 :)
Beneficial in order to prioritise tasks and be more productive. Very good. Excellent speaker - engaging and good pace. Perfect workbook too.
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).
Good way to understand what may have gone wrong in the past & how to avoid it happening again.
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.
Thanks for today, really helpful stuff as ever. Great to see you playing so obviously to your strong suit too.
An interactive learning session where all items can be discussed and where new/refreshed ways of understanding you and others around you.
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.
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.
Very enlightening and informative. Presented in a light hearted, fun and open format. Encouraged interaction with all. Really enjoyable session!
An excellent session and I was amazed at how much of the obvious solutions that we were not doing.
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.
It was very insightful. Lots of thought-provoking info that will stay with me and has me hungry to learn more and start practising!
Very good to add to an officer dealing with the public day-to-day.
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 !!
Relaxed environment to share experiences/frustrations and learn how to cope/change behaviours.
Motivational course (Coaching skills) which makes you want to put it into practise. Ideal for those who manage people and need advice.
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.
