“I’ve found I’ve improved my ability to recognise stressful situations and to take a step back.”
“I’ve taken steps to eliminate distractions and focus on my intended task. I’ve also been more able to stand back and prioritise.”

“I have found that I am able to deal better with clashes in personalities: largely being able to accept & acknowledge differences and move on…. I have found empathy has been enhanced. I find that I have become more sensitive to my staff’s stress levels & struggles and see the signs relating to their pressures more clearly.”
“The course has helped me feel invigorated and more confident in my abilities in the workplace.”
“Excellent; well structured, with new insights and material each week. Very practical with very good interactions and discussions with all participants.”
