    "We were amazed with the difference your training made to our bottom line of profits in addition to the enhanced team co-operation and understanding. The time our team spent with you was invaluable, and it was so useful to find out how we can express the same thing in different ways , yet be misunderstood. Understanding how a crisis can make people revert to learned negative behaviour, and how having an insight into our natural talent and energy can help change this for the better. The experience was one everyone thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. Great training!"

    "The personality tests and review was extremely effective, as it gave insights into each other's' approach/reactions to stresses and situations.As a result of this, the working environment has improved immensely and communication between the team members changed completely. As the weeks have passed, there is now a growing feeling of ease and trust."

    Terry - Salford CC

    "I would like to thank you for your help resolving the team issues we were experiencing late last year. Taking part in your workshop has helped both myself and the team have a greater understanding of each other's behaviour and motivation in the work environment. As a manager it is a pleasure to see the 'team gel' and watch them grow in confidence. Although I have seen similar models of Personality Profiles, the PSR Model showing how to work with each other was excellent. I understand members of the team have never been involved with profiling and really enjoyed the experience.Once again thank you for your time and help."
