The two-day Coaching and Leading Safely Programme has enabled me to be more assertive towards higher management get my point across in different ways. It also helped with highlighting my own strengths and weaknesses and how to assess that in other people.

I would recommend this course 100%. The course was thoroughly enjoyable and very informative. I particularly found the training on techniques in coaching and facial patterns useful, there was nothing taught which I did not feel would have a positive impact going forwards.
