Having two concentrated days of bootcamp with Leslie that were specifically customised to my needs enabled me to address the concerns that were most important to me. Unlike workshops where I might have picked up bits and pieces of good information, we focused on tools and models that fit and worked specifically for me. From this, I gained the confidence to start working straight away on issues that I had struggled with for a while. I also discovered ways to change my approach that created an immediate positive impact on other people and their development. I could see that others changed as a result of my change. And the notes I have from the bootcamp are invaluable; I continue to refer to them regularly.

I was a bit worried about admitting my weaknesses, especially as a high performer. But I knew that coaching would help me perform even better. Meeting Leslie was very reassuring, I immediately felt I could trust her. She designed the whole process to fit my needs and it worked almost immediately. It was extremely useful to talk with her rather than a friend or colleague. Not only is she insightful, her unique knowledge base added great value. I have experienced much success because of our coaching; even my managers have noticed a significant positive change.

Leslie understands my approach, style and work situation. Not only is she able to trigger enhanced perspective on challenging issues and situations – but also offers unique insights into my own thinking. Her thoughts are often conversations I was too afraid to have with myself! Working together for over 5 years also fast tracks solutions as we don’t need to discuss the background: a cost-effective way to ensure personal development. … Leslie is extremely professional and focused. I find working with her restorative and inspiring.
