Sometimes it’s the simplest of insights that have the most profound impact. Through her wealth of experience, deep technical understanding and skilled coaching techniques, Barbara was able to analyse and distil from reams of quantitative and qualitative data, and then frame the right questions needed to lead to meaningful reflection and self-discovery without trying to “boil the ocean”. Barbara has a lovely style in which she quickly develops trust and rapport, while at the same time holding the participant to account. The supporting reading material Barbara recommended was also perfectly aligned for my needs. At the outset, I asked Barbara to challenge my thinking and not to pull any punches. Barbara well and truly fulfilled her commitment and as a result I’m a better “version” of myself today.
