Ken’s approach to coaching has helped me develop my own solution to the issues I was facing which ensures I continue to develop the skills to do it on my own in the future. In particular, his style of questioning is very disarming which naturally leads to a more open and flowing experience.
Paul, Local Government
Ken, and the coaching tools he uses, have provided me with excellent, relevant and very useful career guidance. His ongoing support through regular meetings has reinforced the information we have identified about me and my career.
Warren, State Government
I have truly appreciated the guidance that Ken has provided to me during these turbulent few months. Having an objective, removed ally to touch base with each month gave me the clarity and perspective I needed to focus on effective ways to achieve the big goals, rather than getting caught up in the irrelevant and irrational.
