Venue - needs stronger coffee (!) and the lights in the ladies washroom need fixing so the bulbs don't continually blow! Course content - I really enjoyed every session and feel that the on-going learning and putting into practise is now the really exciting and empowering part. I genuinely can't recommend this course enough for anyone who has a desire to improve self, your peers and the team around you. Diane delivered the training with a clear passion and enthusiasm for helping to improve everyone in the room. What a great group of people to spend 32 hours with.
An excellent course, all the better for being over several weeks so there is chance to put into practice what has been learnt, for additional feedback and discussion. Diane really knows how to get the best out of individuals with very different backgrounds and objectives. Thoroughly recommended.
I warmed to Diane immediately as she took the time to meet us individually before the course even started. During the course itself, she made me feel comfortable and relaxed and she was very encouraging. She was so easy to listen to, personable and friendly and ensured we knew she was available to contact at anytime. I felt she was totally committed to helping me get the most out of the course, the material was excellent and her stories and examples to reinforce the course content were fascinating. I will now use the skills she has helped me develop and continue using them. I am so grateful to Diane for building my confidence which in turn brings new opportunities in both my work and personal life.
Diane was lovely to work with, I found the course really useful for giving me a fresh approach to managing and helped me gain confidence in effectively communicating with my team. The course has lead me to implemented a number of changes in my department that has increased efficiency and the quality of output.
Diane's course has helped me no end, helping me understand my strengths and that when overused, they become weaknesses. Since starting Diane's course, not only have my team noticed a change, but it has been noticed across the business. Diane has given me the tools and methods to implement to handle my stress better and to help be a better leader for my team. Diane is thoughtful and really lives the platinum rule ('treating others how they want to be treated') meaning she could teach a room of extremely different people about leadership really effectively. A fantastic course overall, that I think everyone should do and I am so pleased to have been able to be a part of it. Thanks Diane - Now for the life long learning!
I took so much from this course that has helped me with my role. It's helped me understand that knowledge is only a small part of what makes you a great leader and after implementing a lot of the techniques I've found that my team are more motivated, productive and solving problems on their own, to great effect.
