"Karen successfully completed a whole of organisation capacity – culture, resources, business systems and processes - review against strategy for Family Life, to help us set our business transformation priorities and map out the journey we needed to take. We found that Karen brings her whole self to a project, seeking to engage the people, understand the issues and draw in from her extensive knowledge and resources to enable solution finding and strategy for implementation for results. Internal feedback was very affirming that even for those most challenged by the project, Karen was able to bring them on board and set us up for success. I look forward to further opportunities to work together."

"Emee's coaching enabled me to articulate my goals and to develop practical action plans to achieve my objectives. At all times I felt I could trust Emee and was able to frankly discuss my concerns with her. She quickly understood the challenges and context of my role. Although the exercises and materials in the leadership program were interesting and useful, it was the individual sessions with Emee that really enabled me to reflect on my aspirations and capabilities. One of her most valuable contributions to my development was the insightful feedback she gave me subsequent to meetings she attended with me and my managers. These meetings were important in terms of discussing my goals and gaining support from my managers. Emee's involvement gave me confidence and ensured the meetings were effective. I looked forward to our coaching sessions and am motivated to continue working to the plan she helped me devise."
