I attended the CPD “Stop Trying to Look Good Coach” course with Magdalena in London after completing the CTI Co-Active Coach Core Curriculum. The 3 day course was impeccably organized and the agenda was pitched perfectly towards Coaches with experience. Magdalena is very knowledgeable about Coaching and has a warm, extremely professional and spacious style of delivering her curriculum, allowing each of the attendees the time and space to contribute and learn. Many new tools were introduced over the 3 days, with demonstrations and time to practice each of them. I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 day course and would recommend Magdalena to anyone looking to further develop themselves, their organization or their coaching practice.
Magdalena has provided incredible benefit to the social entrepreneurs she has worked with through us. Both as a coach, and as a leader of a session, her disarming manner and warm approach very quickly allow the people she works with to feel an impact from her work. Her insights and experience are immediately apparent, and we have been extremely lucky to be able to work with her.
The workshop provided me with a supportive learning environment to discover myself and explore the ways in which I interact with the outside world. Each module built on the previous one, leading to a deeper level of understanding. I learned coaching techniques that can be applied in a business environment. Coaching is an important leadership skill.
Being aware of Magdalena’s great competence and expertise I came to this course not quite knowing what to expect but also knowing it would be of the highest standard. What I found there far exceeded my expectations. Yes, it was indeed excellent!
After our session with Magdalena, my team came out stronger and more determined than ever to achieve a good service to our customers. As well as bonding more as a team through enjoyable exercises, we were able to get down to some serious discussion about what we wanted to change and how we would go about doing that. Magdalena helped us to identify team wisdoms and team characteristics which we will now use as both a personal and group guidance system to carry us forward. These characteristics will enable us to maintain our effectiveness as a team, they will also periodically be used as a barometer to measure ourselves against. All in all we collectively agree that the session highlighted what we’re good at, while also enabling us to identify strategies and tools to allow positive and empowering personal and team progress.
On behalf of the APDG [Airline Personnel Discussion Group], I want to say a very big thank you for the excellent session you presented on Time Management and Effective Communication Skills. The participants said the session enabled them to reflect on their own time management skills, focus on how to improve their own communication and overcome some of the barriers they face. The session was delivered in a very clear and effective way and you provided us with concepts that were not only relevant to our day to day working lives, but were also practical and easy to adopt. The time cards were a great hit with everyone and I have mine clearly displayed as a reminder to apply what you shared with us. The session left us energised and motivated and full of great ideas on how to effectively communicate with others and save time.
