I really enjoyed Alison's coaching style - warm and connected but still challenging and accountability-driven. I have implemented tools and ideas discussed based on my profile tests. I have some techniques I can now utilise quickly and effectively when in workplace situations that might produce a strong emotional response, so that I can self-regulate at speed and communicate effectively.

Karin is a really fantastic coach. I really enjoyed her toolkit and ideas for moving me forward. She was able to challenge my thinking and it was good to get a second opinion on things. Loved the Strengths conversation and to have that lens in place to practically move forward in my leadership journey.

It went really well. I appreciated the empathy given. I really, really enjoyed Kathryn being able to read me so well, it was awesome to have that feedback about myself. I now do not have to go back and have a second discussion in order to rectify what I have agreed to that I didn't actually want to agree to in the first place!
