“I thank Dundar Akin for introducing Oxford Leadership to me. He gave essence to all the concepts clearly and more importantly shared them with passion. He has guided and challenged me countless times in a constructive manner, which has helped me transform my life.”
Mehmet Isikdemir​Strategy Manager​Vodafone
The SML program led by Cecilia McKay was truly transformational, Admittedly the work challenged me to “dig deep” in the development, acceptance and leaning into my authentic self. Cecilia’s mastery of the coaching approach combined with her compassion created the space for true transformation. Using the SML combined with Mrs. Olivares coaching skills created a unique opportunity to move beyond the superficial and examine my values, beliefs and bias to develop my unique purpose. This purposeful living continues to resonate through both my personal and professional life. 
Brandi Trudell​Healthcare Executive​

“The coach was really professional, supportive, and able to ask the right questions to support me in opening my thoughts. I am notable to find anything to improve. Sessions were intense and after each coaching I was surprised by how much further I was able to go and how much help the coach gave me with that.”

“Knowing that I could completely trust my coach enough to speak about anything was one of the  key elements that helped build the great relationship we shared on this journey. The knowledge, thoughts and ideas shared along with the support provided made the experience a very positive one for me.”

“Thank you Yrsa for all the support! I learned a lot and I am now much more confident and also engaged to the company. I really hope there will be an opportunity to continue the coaching with you.”

Greg made me think out of the box all the time and challenged me to look at myself both as a leader at work and, on a more personal level at home. He's an inspirational teacher and I have grown hugely since I started working with him.

For our company, Vladimir is a reliable partner and a professional in his field. A masterfully conducted strategy session helped us find common goals in the company and formulate the steps to achieve them. Teamwork and the experience of constructive feedback were the most valuable. The positive and energy that Vladimir charges moves to the development of himself and the business as a whole!
Ilona RumiyanHRDTESLI, Russia
I am very impressed by the individual approach to the client's request with detailed study and preparation for the training. It is obvious that the development of the program does not follow a standard pattern. The atmosphere that Vladimir creates during the training is friendly and conducive to cooperation and deep joint work.

In a short period of time, Jasmijn was able to win the trust of all parties involved in a very dynamic, multi-cultural environment working with diverse teams. With her diligence, customer focus and emotional intelligence, she builds and reenforces strong relationships.  She communicates clearly and knows how to bring people together towards a shared vision. Jasmijn has found a good balance between being practical and principal.

Es una gran oportunidad para conocer y trabajar nuestras fortalezas y debilidades, así como para desarrollar un plan para evolucionarlas. Sinceramente, creo que el cambio profundo ocurre solo dando ejemplo. Este programa nos ayuda a que, como ejecutivos, lideremos a través del ejemplo y con hechos, en lugar de con las palabras ".
