Make Kindness your Authentic Leadership Principle

We are all thinking about making changes to bring a fresh focus in these difficult times, even if the end of ‘lockdown’ is in sight. The new year has passed but it is not too late to look back on what went well (maybe not a lot in 2020!) and forward to what we can…

Engagement is about people – not technology

Engagement in learning comes from a belief that we are connecting with someone (or something) from which we will get some benefit.

Clear presenter; good at bringing across the material.

Very good facilitator; great listener and a great sense of humour.

On a personal level I felt it was the first time that I had been able to draw a breath and think about all you discussed since the start of Covid. So, a huge thank you, the content, slides, interaction on chat etc was all brilliant.

In addition to the training material itself, Hans was able to provide deeper answers on specific topics that came from more experienced managers.

Super confident, had answers for everything or helped find them. Really, good. Pretty impressed!

Great speaker, leaving sufficient space for attendees to get involved in the discussions

Good sense of humour, effective at delivering content and soliciting questions from the audience.

Hans did great job in involving people to have discussion about the various issues instead of just presenting them, much appreciated!

Clear, engaging and committed to helping us – amazing facilitator
