What I’ve learned from Oxford Leadership™ is bigger than words. My perception of myself, of my life, of the world, and of my place in this world is today totally different from what it was 4 months ago. My individualistic approach to leadership has moved to a more humanistic one. The effect on my work has been significant and sustained.

Daniel has been a key facilitator in increasing the level of consciousness in all the layers of management in our organisation. His flexibility to adapt to very different managing profiles and the solid methodology used, meant a huge developing experience both in a personal and in a professional level for all of us. The increase in managing maturity is perceived in a surprisingly short period of time. I surely recommend to live the experience!

We can see the difference in the quality of leadership. We find our leaders are more aware of themselves and their behaviours - they have become mature. Good leadership starts with good knowledge about yourself. Oxford Leadership are very professional and were able to make a true impact on our leadership; in how they behave, in their relationships with themselves, and their employees. They have exactly the right people to work with leaders.

Elisa fostered a community of openness and trust that allowed us to break down barriers and recognize our strengths and weaknesses as a team. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome and we think Elisa was uniquely qualified, given her understanding of our company. The seminar agenda was very well structured and included very useful and interactive team exercises, which allowed us to discover our respective strengths and styles, and define common goals and actions.

Regular sessions with my Oxford mentor keep me moving forward toward my goals. It would otherwise be too easy to get lost in day-to-day dramas and lose focus. I also benefit from having someone more experienced to bounce ideas off - especially someone free from the internal politics.

I worked with Andrew during leadership training for the senior executive management team in BT. What makes Andrew different to other consultants is his ability to understand personality, politics and business. His advice is based on realistic targets and he listens carefully to people before making suggestions that make a difference. His background as a lawyer means Andrew has excellent business sense and can help drive an organisation through change and challenging times. He understands big corporates and also regulation and compliance which makes him valuable to any organisation.

Gia enjoys a pragmatic style in developing the team, she basically took a group of skeptical managers and made them more challenging of both the business and themselves. The great thing is that we are still receiving benefits from that programme years after it finished. It’s difficult and subjective to look for returns on this type of investment, but sometimes you just know that it was right.

She was the lead facilitator responsible for selecting the team of executive coaches that would work with our high potentials throughout the workshop as well as making sure the content was current… She always received high ratings from those she coached for her insight into the person and the assessments related to their style and impact. Angela is an excellent partner on program design because she brings her expertise in leadership and coaching with a willingness to modify to meet the client or organization's needs.

After a rather extensive exploration, we decided to hire Kim Møller to open our first ever Sales Conference, elaborating on the subject of “Leadershipin a Growing Multilateral Alliance”, during a 90 minutes speech. He brought in authoritative, high level perspectives using accessible language and a clear, pleasant speaking style. Innovative ideas blended well with his ethical “call of duty” approach. The audience loved it and the conference was eventually a big success. Highly recommended if you are looking for a seasoned, entertaining orator with board-level experience in leadership building, capable of delivering thought-provoking messages that will trigger change.
