Here are some of our customer testimonials that we are proud to have received:
Hi Julia – I wanted to follow up to say … there are times in our careers and life when we can call out particular events that have been extremely influential. For me attending your Impactful Influencing course is one of them. As an example (too many to mention them all!) I have really advanced promoting my personal brand. I just want to recognise and say “thank you” for being so authentic in your training style/delivering.
The Insights Team Day gave us the chance to reflect on our strengths and weaknesses in a positive but realistic way. We left armed with practical tips, backed up by the theory behind them. I have no doubt that this will help us all with our individual/team goals and make for a more effective and harmonious team.
Insights provided us not only with an understanding of how we can better communicate with each other, but an opportunity to take a step back and reconnect as a team. So important in a busy small office! I’m really grateful to Insights and to Zestfor for the support they’ve provided to Dreamflight – and for a fun day too.
Julia is a powerful facilitator, she creates a safe environment with warmth and humour allowing people to see the strength of difference and how great communication provides a platform for performance and ease within a team. Thank you Julia for your knowledge and expertise – it was a fun, insightful day and I’ve definitely brought home new actions and perspectives.
Thank you so much for such an interesting and constructive morning, myself and the team enjoyed the Insights training and found real value in this session.
Thanks Julia for a great training experience – your genuine passion for every individual to unlock their true potential was very apparent and deserves to be recognised!
Thank you for a great Insights day, the team really enjoyed it, found it useful and of course given us more tools to be even more high functioning.
A big THANK YOU Julia for your work with our team at a crucial part in their change journey.
Your ability to be directive and instructional yet never disempowering (giving people helpful ideas about what they can actually DO to change), brought Insights to life in a way that I’ve not experienced before. You offered us much more than pure facilitation – role modelling ‘emotional engagement’ at its best!
It has, I am sure, helped a critical mass of people to step up, understand their behaviours, style, and take personal ownership of their destiny and impact.
I have high hopes that our agreed programme of workshops – provoking the LT to work differently…. followed by the rest of the department – will have very positive organisation-wide impact.
This programme is amazing, really felt like I knew everyone in my team in a much better way afterwards, made me feel more confident in myself at work and also in my personal life. The profile got me spot on and helped me to recognise areas that I didn’t realise I was well versed in and it also highlighted areas where I can make a change. Overall it is such an inspiring course and really makes you feel like no matter what is your top ‘colour’ you are essential to the function of the workplace.
I just wanted to say thank you for today. Not only for the training and for enabling such a great team conversation, but also for being a mediator and saying things that both my colleague and I needed to hear to move towards a better working relationship. Given all the people you meet every day, I am impressed and appreciate the attention you can give to a single individual and their issues.
Thank you Julia for doing a great job in engaging and facilitating the development of our managers. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to connect again in the future.
One of the best training I have ever attended. Well-prepared (prior to the training you are supposed to take part in a test) and on-going throughout your whole life (you receive a small book on yourself and can use not only the information on yourself, but also the knowledge about other personalities/colours). The training helped me to understand the nature of my and other people’s behaviour in the work place and everyday life. I really enjoyed the way the training was conducted – interesting and well organised where participants were also involved! I found the training beneficial and the tips on how to communicate with my team colleagues are also good.
Julia has helped me greatly through my journey of life/career coaching. After initial meetings with three different coaches I decided to work with Julia based on her understanding of my situation, empathy, experience, interpersonal style, and positive attitude. My personal journey has been full of surprises for both of us; these have all been approached with objectivity, positive encouragement, and creative ideas. One critical success factor is that Julia has helped me make decisions on my journey without forcing her opinions on me.I have also learned that everyone needs a regular coach to support them throughout their entire career, not just the difficult times – I plan to continue to work with Julia in the future. I would definitely recommend her in this capacity.
I can highly recommend Julia Carter as a Career Coach and should the need arise, be thrilled at the opportunity at working together with her again. I first starting seeing Julia when I had reached a crossroads in my career and I wanted a change, but had no idea what this change was. We began a journey together where Julia facilitated my identification of what was important to me, my values, what I wanted to achieve in my career, my ideal job etc.
In conjunction with me having a very clear understanding of what my ideal job and working environment should look like, I was able to clearly identify what my areas of strength were and where I could utilise these skills. From this I was able to build a clear picture in my mind of what I wanted my next career to look like, as well as the type of organisation.
This greatly assisted in the job hunting process as I could focus and target the areas and careers which matched with what Julia and I had identified. I have now found a great career challenge, still using my skills and experience, but in a slightly different area. Julia was key throughout the process as she supported and facilitated this journey of self-discovery, enabling clarification of what the next steps in my career development should be.
I have known and collaborated with Julia Carter for a number of years, both in her role as a learning and development consultant, as program developer, and as trainer. It is a delight to work with Julia. She is highly professional, has expert knowledge, has a very customer oriented approach, is quick, flexible, and very impactful.
Just this year she has co-created an innovative, interactive series of web conferences, in which 500+ supervisors have participated, with highly positive feedback. I can recommend Julia as an excellent collaborator in the Learning and Development domain for globally oriented, Fortune 500 companies.
