I was at a loss as to what my next step should be in my career and I didn’t know where to begin or what direction I should be heading. Di helped me to realise my long-term goals and create a plan for the future!

Di’s professional and friendly approach made for an easy learning experience. She assisted me to identify my strengths and build my confidence in the interview process. Di’s guidance and advice was of great benefit and no doubt contributed to my successful application for an Executive Level 1 role- thank you Di, I will definitely be using your services again!!

One of my team leaders wasn’t performing in their role. My relationship with the staff member had broken down and the situation was very stressful, the morale and productivity of the whole team was affected. It had got to the stage where I saw that I needed to commence a formal underperformance process. I knew Di had a history of supporting managers and staff with underperformance issues so I organised some conversations with her to help me through this time. I also got approval for career coaching support for my staff member. Di has a personable and supportive coaching style and handled the situation very professionally. She met with both myself and my staff member separately, and while maintaining confidentiality on both sides, was quickly able to help us to identify and immediately put into action ways for us to repair our relationship and also get performance back on track. We never needed to commence the formal underperformance process. Money well spent!
