As the creator and facilitator of the weekend, Magdalena exudes a wonderful blend of excitement, curiosity and calm attentiveness. We went at a pace that felt right for us to gallop when we wanted and to also pause when it felt right. The content of the weekend was aimed at the right level for us as coaches to not only review the cornerstones of our practice, but also to stretch ourselves by learning new techniques and approaches. I was able to build on my foundations in a way that got me completely re-energised right from the first day. This energy stayed through the whole weekend. I felt the programme was packed with information and learning, which meant that it felt like great value for money. Not only did we demo and workshop exercises in each day, I also had time to see how they combined with what I already know. The exercises were such that with more practise, they will get richer and richer as I use them with my clients.
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.
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.
