The Results Speak For Themselves.
Here are comments from our clients:
“Mike recently supported us in setting up an Internal Coaching network. This was ground-breaking work, and our expectations were more than surpassed by the quality of the intervention, but even more importantly, by the highly successful results. In a period of significant change this network will help us support individual leaders, managers and teams manage these changes. It has also built a hugely positive culture around coaching in our senior team.”
“I do believe my coaching sessions have had an extremely positive impact on our business, kept me motivated and driven and by enabling more strategic thinking, helped our business not only survive but to grow considerably during the current recession. I have recommended my coach to associates and will continue to do so.”
“What I valued most about my coaching sessions with Mike is his ability to balance empathy whilst still challenging me to consider alternative perspectives. I connected with Mike’s strength-based approach and appreciated starting our sessions with focusing on personal successes since our last coaching session. One of the biggest impacts for me was exploring my personal strengths and values and discussing strategies as to how I react to other people who share different values to my own. Mike provided the appropriate amount of personal examples and excellent analogies (‘choosing to get on the bus!’) which helped me connect to our discussions. Mike always pushed me to come up with outcomes, even when I wasn’t always sure what I wanted the outcome to be! Mike always took the time to explain the rationale for new coaching tools & techniques which I have since taken with me to my own coaching conversations. Mike has an ability to establish rapport quickly and create a positive environment, which for me meant I was comfortable to explore my goals and challenge my usual way of thinking. My main takeaway from our coaching sessions has been making a conscious effort to choose how I respond to a certain situation, rather then just reacting. This has meant that I really challenge myself to consider what my outcome is in many situations and has had a positive impact on my professional and personal relationships.’
“Mike has supported me in many ways, to really identify whether this is the right role for me, what my strengths are and a way of exploring difficult issues without feeling defensive or protective. I feel that I have gained in confidence, appreciated my weaknesses and made real steps to work more effectively. The organisation has grown and I feel more able to work strategically, letting go of things and building a team around me that can take on significant responsibilities which fit their role and support the organisation.”
“It was a large international project which involved training in-house trainers to deliver new ways of working in a more complex matrix environment to meet the
changing customer landscape (Health Service Provision).This is one of the strategic drivers for our business. The trainers (Mike Roarty & Kathy Toogood) have been exemplary in their focus on understanding the environment and delivering outstanding training that our trainers are delighted and excited to deliver internally to meet their business challenges. This has involved working across many different cultures and the feedback has been extremely positive.”
