“Work’s going really well. At the start of the program I was very sceptical of all this, but I took the steps you told me, just in case and they had the exact impact you said they would! I’ve shifted so much!

Even my personal life has improved. I’m a lot calmer now, I’m investing my energy in the right things. I’ve worked out what works for me and for my stakeholders and I’m more comfortable saying no. I’ve always been vocal, but you helped me to word it better, to get a better result. And now I'm following up, so the result is so much better.

My stakeholders are quite excited, but its helped me more than anyone else. All of the answers were with me, you just helped me to find them.”
