“Eric and his team started working with us just over 1 year ago, delivering a bespoke Leadership Development Programme for our Front Line Leaders. Due to the success of this, and the insightful and engaging attitude from Eric we have run the module again with another group, as well as a team development programme with the Senior Team. We will also put a 3rd cohort through in 2015. Eric’s practical experience coupled with his theoretical knowledge enabled him to engage with our experienced Managers, and help them to start to understand themselves their impact on the organisation – this realisation and facing the ‘truth’ has enabled our team to start to become true leaders. The feedback from the people involved has been excellent, and I can see a direct link between the training intervention provided and the performance of our business.”
