I became a client as the result of a conflict situation in my workplace. Far from being a negative experience, I found Vanessa’s approach to the issues I brought to be extremely positive and affirming. At each session, I received clear and concise feedback, with plenty of challenging insight. Each session built on the last, providing me with a clear pathway towards the goals I was able to identify and articulate. Homework provided me with the chance to put what I was learning into practice whilst specific techniques enabled me to explore new ways of communicating with others in a safe and supported environment.The experience was a turning point in my career and helped me identify and have the courage to take the next steps towards a more satisfying fulfilling work life. I feel even more confident in my people management skills and look forward to years of being able to build better work relationships using the insights and learnings from our work.
Most valuable for me was identifying less than desirable ways of managing in the past, and learning skills to manage more effectively and move forward. As a person who is new to a people-managing role I can identify mistakes I made this year and now have a skill set to use to work towards correcting these mistakes and making change for the future. I find people management hard at times but I now have skills to make it less confronting.
This is one workshop that I feel cannot be improved as it is at present – excellent. Will be forever grateful.
Workshop was well paced, interactive, taught a simple way to approach issues that enable development for both staff and manager”.
Great balance of information, self-directed learning, practice and timely feedback in a safe learning environment.
