I have found Gemma to be a challenging, insightful and understanding provider of coaching services. Her wisdom, clarity, and ability to see through the issues in order to identify and name causative factors, question personal motives and responses, and inspire a new set of behaviours, has been extremely helpful in improving personal and organisational performance
Gemma is a highly skilled leadership coach who gets results. With both a pragmatic and engaging approach, she is able to guide leaders to make the necessary shifts to be the best leaders they can. We saw the results of Gemma’s coaching first hand in observing sustainable change in our leaders who participated in our pilot program as well as through direct feedback from participants. I would recommend Gemma for coaching at all levels of the organisation but especially at the leadership level
I found the coaching sessions with Gemma to be invaluable. Gemma is highly professional and approachable and I immediately felt comfortable working with her. The coaching sessions helped me to reconsider and reflect on my strengths and interests as well as areas of my professional skill set that I wanted to improve. I was working in a busy and demanding role at the time and I found the sessions were almost a relief as they made me stop and think about what I was doing and where I wanted to go next with my career. The sessions did help inform my next career move and I have found myself in a fulfilling position as a result. I highly recommend Gemma as a professional coach
Gemma is very warm, understanding and easy to talk with. She helped me gain a clearer view of my strengths and weaknesses, and helped to show me how what I saw as weaknesses, are actually positive attributes. I came away from our session feeling positive and more confident in myself.
The best facilitator I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude for the extremely positive outcomes from the two days of development that you have just provided to our managers. As you are aware, all the managers (including myself) have participated in many development opportunities in the past and are therefore not novices to the type of learning intervention that was proposed. However, in all my working years (and this amounts to quite a few), I have never witnessed such a significant beneficial change in individuals in such a short period. The strategy, content material and the delivery were simply superb. Thank you for delivering such a professional solution to a complex issue – whilst we are only at the beginning of the journey, I am truly impressed by your ability to get us all on the same road and going in the right direction!
Best facilitated leadership session I’ve attended – ate less mentos, didn’t fall asleep, time went fast. Lots of energy made it work well.
We have a much stronger team of executives and leadership of the organisation as a result.
I have attended courses similar to this but have never been as committed and confident that the group will continue with the lessons learnt.
Gemma was so positive, calm and insightful in our coaching sessions. She really helped me with practical ways to improve my confidence and better utilise my strengths at work.
Until I started working with Gemma, it was like I had been lying dormant for many years. I had been suppressing fun, pleasure and life. In just three coaching sessions I have opened up into the person I know I am supposed to be. Gemma helped me to give myself permission to look after myself the way I look after other people. Before working with Gemma I felt like I had stopped – like I always had a heavy weight on me. I now feel like I’m moving forward. I have started my new business and I am looking at life with a sense of optimism.
In one 90 minute session Gemma managed to crystallise about a decade’s worth of my deliberations and desire for a career change into a clear concept and plan of action. What’s more the whole process was most enjoyable and gave me the confidence to follow through with it all!
I have had many coaches over the years who have provided feedback, direction and a pathway to individual and team success. Gemma was referred to me by a colleague as I was after some professional one on one training for an upcoming assignment. I found Gemma to be honest, robust and highly effective in not only the delivery of the coaching but also in clarifying the assignment scope, assessing my unique and specific needs and planning out the coaching I required. Gemma made a great deal of difference and I learned much about myself throughout the journey. I would highly recommend Gemma Munro for your specific coaching needs.
Thank you Gemma for your coaching program for the eRSA senior management team; it was successful, fun and fabulous.
I personally benefited because you put my job in context for me. It’s all too easy to forget that jobs are not separate from life, and we need to be reminded that a satisfactory life outside work can contribute to career success. You also made sure that I recognised my capabilities and didn’t take them for granted.
I could see that my colleague also benefited greatly, and this has improved and enriched our work relationship enormously. We are consciously putting the actions and techniques you recommended into practice and are finding them effective and very useful.
Can’t wait for the next reason to do coaching with you.
I have found the coaching program very valuable. The opportunity provided to reflect on my strengths and develop these to improve my effectiveness in the University were at times challenging, but as a result I feel that I have grown so much since the start of the coaching period. I have achieved both of my main objectives: to increase the responsibility and breadth of my role; and to expand my influence. Of the two I’m probably most excited by the second.
Gemma has been a fantastic coach. Her energy and groundedness (a good combination) gave me the confidence to try different approaches and as a result change some of my behaviours, which has increased my influence within the University and made me a more effective leader. She has a very good understanding of the University’s culture which meant that we could just get on with the conversations instead of having to spend time explaining the context. I have a strong sense that what I have learnt will continue to be of benefit to me well into the future.
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the coaching program. It has been of enormous benefit to me and I would certainly recommend it to other senior leaders.
