My learning path

I left school with very few qualifications and have gained most of my education and qualifications since leaving. I've done a lot of work in 'change management', although nobody called it that back then. It was tough and most people took the approach of 'how are we going to make people do it?' I believe having a difficult start in life gave me an understanding that there were more beneficial ways of encouraging and influencing change. I understand that everyone is different. In my work, I'm aware of my very strong sense of fairness, equality and justice, which is why I believe passionately in NLP as a set of tools that can help people move on and get on with their work and lives. We hear people describe what we do as 'soft skills training'. We show people the choices they have to adapt their behavior and attain specific business goals. To my mind, the personal development work we do is anything but soft and the tools we use have a hard business focus as well as a strong personal edge."
