“I would like to say that I really enjoyed the Impact Program, I personally learnt a lot from the Power Exercise. As part of the Middles, I was sometimes frustrated as I felt we made decisions in hast which resulted in disastrous results, it was a great learning curve and at times I felt like I was at work.
I would like to thank both Laurel and you for this wonderful program and your expertise is very much appreciated.” Local government participant on IMPACT leadership development program
‘As a mentor and professional coach Laurel used a clever mixture of personal and professional skills to guide and teach through a large variety of topics in a short set time.
Her background as a mental health professional, allows her to have a deeper level understanding into patterns of thinking and behaviour that helped me to link my emotions and behaviour to my professional life, allowing me to further understand and excel in my chosen areas of discussion.
Allowing me to choose the professional development topics each session, not only showed her depth and ability to mentor on a variety of topics, but put me in control and allowed me to get the most out of the limited time.’
