Self-Management and Team Building Participants Comment:
  • Great tools to help me manage my time at work more effectively. My main learning was scheduling my work (today, this week, this month, later), scheduling emails and phone calls, and understanding the impact of distractions.
  • The best thing was understanding that I can only accomplish max 3-5 tasks per day, and that by trying to achieve everything at once, I am really not completing anything well.
  • Three great things for me: Self-awareness, Time management techniques, More personal power.
  • I got so much in learning how to organise my calendar correctly … and using it to manage how I use my time.
DISC Team Building Participants Comment:
  • Great way to gain understanding why some of my colleagues behave the way they do.
  • I now have a better understanding of my own self-worth and value in the team, whereas before I thought I was insignificant.
  • Understanding the behaviour styles of my work colleagues and what motivates them makes it easier to ‘get them’
  • I loved being able to understand why I get along with some people better than others … I really enjoyed this workshop, and would jump at the opportunity to do something like this again

Personal Testimonials:

2014:Before I started my Leadership Development coaching I was struggling to understand my own value and personal power at work, which caused me feelings of self-doubt, and frustration at myself for not speaking up.  Since Jilinda’s coaching and mentoring I have become very adept at articulating my ideas and opinions and now know that my thoughts are valid and worth consideration. I have learned to lead regardless of my position or the behaviour of those around me. I am now more motivated and inspired for change … and I’m also better at self-managing my own time and making better choices. I highly recommend Jilinda’s coaching sessions … this was invaluable and fantastic for challenging ingrained behaviours and attitudes – a must for anyone!” [SW - Toowoomba]

2013: The personal coaching journey I have taken with Jilinda so far has been amazing… I have learnt things about myself, I feel I always knew, however was too fearful to let show. She has helped me challenge my thoughts, opinions and assumptions which have led me to wonderful discoveries about myself. I have learnt that fear of the unknown can be daunting to most, however with Jilinda’s help, I now know the unknown can also represent new adventures, excitement and new encounters – which are 10/10s in my life circle. I am on track to achieve things I have wanted to do for many years when in the past I have been too fearful” [RR – Gladstone]

2013: Jilinda had previously worked with one of my Divisional Managers around career coaching and I immediately saw the difference in the confidence the manager gained from the coaching sessions.  My contract of employment was unexpectedly terminated by my employer without reason, and Jilinda offered to provide coaching to me at this low point in my career.  I found these sessions to be most valuable and assisted me in regaining my confidence.  She has the uncanny knack of getting you to answer your own questions.  Without Jilinda’s coaching and support the journey back into my career would have taken a lot longer. [DMD - Toowoomba]

2012: Jilinda mentored me to become more confident in my work role … Her ability to make logical suggestions based on an assessment of ’the bigger picture’ is something few people are able to do. As a result, I have become more driven, empowered to work towards achieving my goals. I never felt threatened or judged in making suggestions or during the mentoring discussions, which is one of the reasons I believe our mentoring relationship was such a successful one.” [SFO - Gladstone]

2012:Your pure honesty is much appreciated as it has always been my favourite “trait” [value].  For me personally, the coaching encouragement you gave me to act in a higher position provided me with much needed confidence and the opportunity to make greater use of the 14 years knowledge that I have gained in this sector…” [TN – Gladstone]

Organisational Client Testimonials:

2013-14:We engaged Jilinda to coach our middle managers and key senior staff, to help improve our organisational capability, around their time management, planning skills, and overall leadership confidence and resilience. All staff that received this personal coaching were immediately implementing notable change in the management of their day-to-day work. Several staff have requested additional coaching and this is being allocated in the new budget. 

 Additionally, through Jilinda’s interactive team building workshops, we recognised that all staff have individual personalities and behaviour traits, and our team culture is now more accepting, understanding and harmonious. Key learnings from this have been a constant and positive conversation topic since we all undertook these workshops; in fact all staff provided comment that it was the best, most practical training they have received. 

 I would definitely recommend Jilinda’s coaching and training to all levels of management and staff of SME and large businesses, for leadership development, career guidance, increasing confidence and resilience levels, and improving workplace culture” [DGT - Toowoomba]
