Feedback from H-Training Clients
I feel very fortunate to have discovered H-Training. and the Great Margaret Collins - I have gone on a journey almost beyond belief, I have to give myself the odd pinch to see is this for real! 12 months ago if I thought that would be me, I'd have said 'What Wow!' I have truly discovered myself because of her!
Ciaran's coaching and training gave me the tools to improve my team management skills. I was able to apply the coaching to real life, current issues in my team and work through solutions with Ciaran, which was far more beneficial than doing a course like this as part of a group. I would highly recommend anyone do this training. Your career will thank you for it.
Ciarán's approach to the particular needs of our professional services firm was exceptional. His guidance and feedback provided us with a thorough analysis of the areas in which we had room for improvement. He also road-mapped how our employees could develop personally and, in doing so, help us grow as an organisation
Rarely am I wowed, but Ciarán clearly had a skill and passion for what he does. In just a couple hours I went from nervous and unsure to confident and composed. I learned that an interview is a performance, and I feel I stepped into that room as prepared as I could possibly be as a result of H-Training. My coaching session gave me a structure so I could coherently communicate the message I wanted to convey.
Just to let you know I have been offered the position I applied for and am in the process of accepting it. Thanks so much for all your help and encouragement in coaching me for the interview - it was invaluable.
