Gina Gardiner Associates - Testimonials in & around Finchley

"This is to thank you for the help that working with you has already given me. Over the thirty years or so I have spent in sales and sales management I have been exposed to every kind of measurement, evaluation, Psychometric testing, picking, prodding and being held up to the light. In all those years I have come to realise that nobody ever really listened.

Since we began to work together you have helped and guided me towards a plan that I am sure will help me achieve the elusive goal of achieving more by doing less. Your focus on the big picture is such a refreshing change from the task-oriented attitudes to which I have been exposed to in the past.

By helping me to analyse my situation, goals and aspirations, then put them into a rational plan with clearly achievable stages, you have helped me to realise that all those goals are attainable. I look forward to proving you right and to working with you in the long term.

I will certainly be recommending you to everyone I know."
Neil Hesman, Director, Brentwood, Essex

"When I took over a new team I wanted to create a shared vision within an improved team environment and make better use of the team's time. Gina devised and facilitated a super 4 hour workshop which she delivered at my office in Canary Wharf. I met with her before the meeting and was able to explore not only the areas I felt were blocking progress and the potential issues facing the team. I found the discussion extremely useful in developing my role as the leader of the team and in planning the strategies to use with the team.

We worked as a team throughout the session. Everyone was successfully encouraged to take ownership of the issues and see themselves as part of the solution.

During the session we identified several things which were getting in the way of optimum team efficiency and which constantly drained our resources. Gina ensured that everyone had a voice and that there was a real sense of "team". Everyone felt valued and even the tricky issues were fully aired and dealt with in a positive and constructive way.

We developed, together as a cohesive unit, strategies and approaches that we were all willing and keen to adopt to improve our efficiency and effectiveness. The session was very practical but fun too. People were fully engaged in the process

All our thoughts and ideas were recorded in a very well executed, team-building environment. We left the session with priorities identified and a cohesive plan to move the agenda forward for ourselves and with other departments and with the Senior Management Team of the company.

Back at the desk, the team felt they had been offered a great opportunity to air their frustrations and share their ideas. They had been empowered to find their own solutions and resources that could be easily employed to produce better results.

The results of the session were lasting and far reaching. We had together created a way of making far better use of our individual and team time and manage the expectations of other departments.

It was a really worthwhile session which I recommend Gina to any manager who wants to build the department's sense of team or more efficient and effective use of the team's time.

"I thought I would send a short email to say how much I enjoyed the training at Wickford yesterday.? I myself have often facilitated our Skills to Foster course, for prospective foster carers and, more recently as required by the CA '04 , a raising awareness campaign. This entailed doing presentations to a number of partner agencies, as well as to staff members in our own Department. I mention this only to share that I have some little insight into the world of training and presentations.

I thought that your presentation was clear, informative and relevant. Having said that, it must also be mentioned that your pitch and clarity of voice were very good, as was your interaction with all participants.

I am also grateful for the handout on Attachment and the way you related this to the subject matter.

Thank you for a very professional afternoon."
Win Escallier , Senior Practitioner, Private Fostering, Basildon

"I have never forgotton you and I hope you are doing well. I do the warrior, royal, (and tree), stances automatically now. It has now become innate. When I arrive at the office everyone knows about it. I talk to everyone and get on with almost everyone. I know almost everyone's name. I always greet the receptionists with a good morning and happy smile and they always say to me "Good morning Sam!" in reply. (And I always bid them farewell at the end of the day of course). I am so confident now and I know I can do anything, the only limit I have is the one I set in my mind; and so I have set no limits!

I kept reading your General Principles For Developing Confidence, months after you gave it to us and it has been instrumental in helping me to abandon my previous negative mindset.

Thank you for everything Gina"
Sam

"Well done on your article '10 steps' !!? Your articles are always a breath of?fresh air.?


You showed me the key
Now I am free from self criticism, guilt and blame
I am free to discover, explore and be daring
To dis-reguard the protective suit I've been wearing
I am free to know truth and let go of a past ? which was uncaring
To dance and sing and enjoy this life which is for living
Once found this key can never be mislaid
This prized possession released me from shame
Unlocking the door giving access to the ZONE
The special place I can visit you which is HOME
I am free
To truly be who I want to be
To be ME "
Anne, Hornchurch

"Ginas approach and style were excellent, engaging, informative, inspirational, entertaining and captivated our groups attention. Thank you for providing such an insiteful evening."
Jill Knight - Jill Knight HR Consulting Colchester

"I am writing to say thank you for the business coaching we have received so far. Even after 4 sessions we are already putting your plans into action, which we find very beneficial to the growth of our company. My business partner and I found ourselves only planning in the short term, rather than looking at the bigger picture. But with your sessions we can now see what direction we need to go.

It has been a pleasure being coached by you, as you are very professional, friendly and you always make us feel at home.

We will be happy to recommend you to other business owners and will also continue to use your services in future."
Dave Fuller, GT Design & Print Ltd Shenfield

"Gina was a real inspiration. Im going to put her picture on the wall to remind me not to moan rather to get on and solve!!!"
Beverly Benson, Hadley Wood School Herts

"Gina was very inspirational. Her positive attitude has given me lots to think about. Thank you!!"
Helen Person De Bohun Enfield

"Very much enjoyed Gina's talk on building emotional and professional resilience. Gina is an inspiring and engaging speaker, I wish the session was longer as I could have listened to her all evening!

She gave a whole new meaning to the expression 'playing to our strengths' and not allowing our perceived limitations to restrict us. What makes it more special is that it all stems from Gina's own journey and challenges which gave the talk real integrity. It was great to listen to examples of how one can turn problems into stepping stones.

Some brilliant practical tools and tips, some of which I will certainly be practising! Thank you!"
Alex Klokkaris, Colchester
