John was a key leader in our recruitment and selection team, his skills and knowledge allowed us to develop a world class recruitment process that delivers us ab initio talent of high quality. John’s work in this field and his creation of an automated sibling has meant that our product is now being used internationally, with the same outstanding results.
John’s Positive Leadership and Coaching programme has made a significant difference to the Christchurch Engine Centre. The content has impacted the culture of our company, but more than that, John has always tailored his approach to meet our needs and gone the extra mile to reinforce the principles. His professionalism has won huge respect within the company, while his friendly, personable approach has really connected with our staff. The programme has not only changed careers, but given staff skills for life. I strongly recommend John and the programmes he offers.
John was a key contributor to the Inspectorate Capability Programme of Work, implementing a leadership programme for managers and a coaching programme for senior inspectors / managers as well as developing comprehensive on boarding / induction training and an “on the job coaching” toolkit for the first six months of employment for new Inspectors that was recognised as being of high standard by inspectors and managers.
John is great to work with – his experience and skills meant that he was able to come up to speed quickly, gain buy in from key stakeholders and rapidly put in place high calibre development programmes in a busy organisation.
John has provided us with a research based and proven coaching framework and methodology which fills the identified gap for us – after a year we are really starting to see positive results where managers and staff are having conversations which help define expectations and help staff realise their strengths and how they can achieve even better than they first thought. John has always been available with constructive and practical solutions for us.
