""I worked with Geraldine for a period of 2 years, my growth as an individual was immense. I grew a true understanding of what made me what I am and was able to apply my strengths to achieve increased business success. My understanding of relationships with others was heightened to the degree that I achieved many stretching personal goals in my organisation. Geraldine’s calm, but firm style of challenge left me in no doubt that I was accountable for my destiny and indeed gave me a greater focus of the control I had both on myself and in relation to the development of my team. Her open and frank questioning style quickly enabled us to build a relationship of trust that in turn led to me being totally honest with her and myself to a deeper degree than I had previously experienced. I regularly use skills and techniques that I gained during this period - and others have also adopted many of the practices I have shared.""
