Feedback from Previous Clients

Vera Hegarty

In sessions as wide ranging as Presentation Training, through Influencing, to Conflict Resolution, I’ve seen Doug produce results with diverse ranges of people and their diverse ranges of needs. With an authority borne of years of experience, a friendly presence and some forensic listening skills, he has a keen ability identify and coach people through issues specific to their roles and needs. For this he draws on a wide arsenal of tools, creative thinking and flexibility.

 

Personally, I’ve learned a lot about meeting management and managing the environment that continues to be enormously useful in client meetings and events. Overall, the sessions with Doug were not only valuable for the tools, skills and materials that we took away, they also bonded people from different divisions within our organisation.

 

They also left us with a sense of the quality of the training that our company was prepared to invest in us, which is, of course, an expression of the quality that our management demands of itself.

Doug has been my business coach for the last year. He has helped me with a myriad of business challenges, ranging from team dynamics, to politics to personal goal setting. His approaches always focus on practical things which can be done based on the situation at hand, and what I should do differently.  

 

He has a fantastic approach to listening and questioning which really gets to the heart of the issue, delving into personal perceptions, different view-points and emotional intelligence skills to manage the issue

 

With Doug's help, I have reduced my personal stress at work whilst at the same time increased both productivity and performance. Moreover, Doug has helped me look long term and position myself to achieve my personal goals.

Doug has had a genuinely positive impact in the way I handle people and ideas over the last five years. He has coached me through some tough business situations and has supported my journey through them. I now regard him as a trusted adviser who has given me skills and tools to enable me to optimise the challenges and opportunities around me.
