“From the very first session, I could tell this executive coaching experience with Adam Voigt was going to be amazing…right from the start we tackled the hard issues; which not only included pearls of wisdom, encouragement and strategies for difficult situations in my role, but stretched my thinking and approach in dealing with staff, including how to get the best out of them, and for them.
As the sessions progressed and as I approached the widely varied tasks of each day, I was able to see situations from different perspectives and consider more reflectively what the best outcome would be for all concerned. Adam’s unique way of adding humour to the conversation kept each session enjoyable; included topics such as the attributes of zombies and the turmoils of being a football supporter were discussed – all in the context of connecting personal experiences to real-life situations.
The impact this has had on me as a leader has been to help me see more clearly the best path to take, to learn how to ‘call a spade a spade’, to stay fixed and committed to the course and to prioritise. The reflection and self-evaluation components of these sessions were extremely valuable in helping me work out what kind of leader I was, where I needed to tweak my thinking and how to become the leader I want to be…Thank you Adam for the insightful and challenging experience that has set me on the path to becoming the best leader I can be.”
