“Holds the pace I need and sets the structure, consistently supporting my movement towards positive outcomes.”

Sandra Lee – VP & General Manager, Fisher Clinical Services UK

 

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Steve Jobs

 

Clients who have worked with Transitions Consulting Ltd. coaches make the following comments about their experiences:

“I have found my coaching with André to be extremely valuable for a number of reasons. Initially he supported me on a 6 month integration and transition coaching program during our company merger. Even though there were defined program parameters, he listened and helped me identify the specific challenges that I was having from both a professional and personal perspective. He supported me to be a more effective leader and manager during a time of significant change, as well as helping me to better manage my personal energy, emotions and perspective, especially during times of feeling overwhelmed.

Essentially, André’s coaching helped me be more effective, productive and successful in my work during a challenging time of change, and helped me to gain greater personal insights as well to make some changes in my work and personal life which have had great benefits on my ‘work-life balance’ and overall health and well-being.

Following on from the transition coaching program, I was very fortunate to be able to continue working with André on a follow up leadership goals & deliverables coaching program as part of the new integrated company. Again, with André’s coaching support, we were able to focus on what was most important to help me – both professionally and personally – effectively identify and deliver on my outcomes. He always listened to what I was really saying, challenged me, provided me with great insight, and coached me through how to identify and implement changes I really needed to make.

As a result of our time together, I have seen improved engagement, performance and job satisfaction in my team members, a greater self-confidence in my own ability to lead, and an increased positive perception about my leadership that has led to new opportunities.

André has helped me be a better leader and manager, both professionally and personally, for which I am grateful. I strongly and enthusiastically recommend André and The Coaching Space for your coaching needs.”

Dr Marli Watt MD, MPH – Regional Head of Global Drug Safety, Japan, Asia Pacific, Canada & Latin America, SHIRE

“In my 15 years of professional experience I have had chance to go through a number of corporate training programs, some of them more useful and memorable than others. The coaching masterclass taught by Andre was, without a doubt, time well-invested. The sessions were engaging and thought-provoking. I walked out with a number of techniques and tools that I could use immediately not only in my professional, but also my personal life.”

Narguiz Birk-Petersen – Senior Director, Head Counsel

“Coaching with Andre is like a great work out at the gym… you put your absolute best in, feel the stretch and walk out on air at the end of the session. We have worked together over the last 2 years and I have found his style and approach a good match for me. He supports me to focus, holds the pace I need and sets the structure, yet is flexible in his approach and consistently supports my movement towards positive outcomes.

He’s able to draw out blind spots and recognise patterns to increase my self-awareness. He exposes the action plans in me that are necessary for me to tackle both strategic and tactical issues.

He offers a unique wealth and depth to our coaching from his own business experience and yet balances this with his core strength in releasing from within me.

I enjoy working with Andre because he continues to stretch me at a business, professional and personal level and would recommend him to others looking for a similar ‘workout.”

Sandra Lee – VP and General Manager, Fisher Clinical Services UK

“Andre brings energy and an air of possibility to his coaching. He is pragmatic, solution-focused and at the same time he is able to work at many different levels according to client needs. He is a pleasure to work with – he is challenging and supportive and fun too.”

Sally Bonneywell – VP Coaching, HS&P Centre of Excellence, GSK

“André from Transitions Consulting Ltd. is a driven and energetic individual who invests a lot in helping other people to achieve their goals. His drive and determination are two very clear aspects to his coaching which would be of benefit to corporate clients. André has an ability to really listen to the issues facing clients and to ask thought-provoking questions.

This combination of drive and listening gives him a grounding, which helps create awareness for his clients, encouraging them to take the actions necessary to achieve their goals. Clients who choose to work with him will benefit from a coach who has direct experience of senior leadership in the corporate world.”

MD – Leadership & Consulting Organisation

“Andre is an energetic, challenging and passionate coach, who coached me to develop plans and practical steps to resolve business challenges that I was facing. The combination of challenge and passion helped me get the best results possible. Andre uses his business and life experience to help clients get clarity over what they want to achieve and how to get there. I worked with Andre on a series of business issues, starting in December 2009.

Andre brings passion and commitment to his coaching and he has a huge energy. We established a successful coaching relationship and he helped me deliver plans for business changes that were successfully implemented. I was able to achieve clarity over both process and implementation through Andre’s challenging but supportive style. He helped me get to the solutions much faster than I would have done myself. Andre is a great coach and I would highly recommend him.”

Group HR Director – Communications Technology

“I have worked with Andre over a period of six months and found him to be an inspiring coach. Andre has an extremely enthusiastic and energetic approach to life and this tends to infect those he comes into contact with. I found him to be insightful in his ability to know when a warm word or a comforting chat was needed and I greatly appreciated the positive attitude he radiates.

From a client perspective, I think Andre’s greatest strength is in his honesty and his directness. Many people shy away from saying what they think or feel but Andre’s style is very much to be open and not shy away from difficult subjects. Andre personally helped me in the coaching context by making me feel very safe and I was able to confide some of my insecurities and not feel in any way judged. He also always managed to bring a smile to my face, whatever the situation. I can highly recommend him as a coach.”

Director – Consultancy

“Andre is a very enthusiastic and engaging coach; 100% there for the client and their agenda which made me feel supported, listened to and stretched in a positive way. Andre really helped me to think clearly about how I could achieve my specific goals; also made sure I was committed to my actions and provided a safe place to talk through the potential obstacles I could come across. His enthusiasm is infectious; I really felt empowered to get on and achieve my goals.”

Careers Consultant – Business School

“Andre has a strong commercial background and is a talented coach which positions him well as an executive coach. He is tenacious, conscientious and wants what is best for the client. Things will get done when Andre is around! Andre has inspired me with his energy and enthusiasm to make things happen. He has challenged my way of thinking. The benefits for me personally were balance – in both a coaching and commercial aspect.”

Learning Development Manager – Recruitment Consultancy

Individual and team sessions were facilitated by Yolanda, where each person worked through … effective communication and conflict handling.

She provided us with effective tools which we can continuously use to assess and measure ourselves regarding our progress from where we were and what we agreed to do to grow.

This ultimately resulted in a totally rehabilitated team, who were reenergised with a renewed sense of determination, a “we can” attitude, and soaring commitment levels on each one’s part to contribute to the success of the team.
Yolanda has been a real source of inspiration, a patient and impactful coach!

Michelle Nel – Divisional Manager

This coaching programme provided the platform for open discussion, allowing us to eliminate sticky areas in our team relations, thereby strengthening team cohesion and effectiveness. It personally allowed me time to introspect, self-evaluate, and reflect on what I was doing in my role and where I wanted myself and my team to go. Yolanda listened provided valuable input.

IB – Executive General Manager

Through working with Yolanda I have found my voice, I am more confident in speaking up when needed and am not afraid to challenge. I have also realised the value I add to the team and now know the work I do is important. My team values my input as a result of this.

Yolanda is someone that allows you to speak and before you know it you have answered your own question. She challenges us with the hard stuff and encourages us to tap into the things we would normally avoid.

Prudence – Senior CRO

This coaching programme pushed us out of our comfort zones, allowing us to increase performance, grow personally and professionally, and develop under-utilised business strengths. I have learnt how to change an area where I was falling short and needed to change my behaviour, into one of my best strengths.

I have increased communication with my team, improving our relations, and allowing us to improve our operational system, anticipate client needs and keep them excited in order to see our value and build better relationships.

Jacques – Senior Sales Exec

Working with Yolanda from Transitions Consulting Ltd. greatly increased my recognition and reinforcement of my strengths, values and beliefs. I was able to clarify my thought processes, and explore issues in a way that I knew was supportive, impartial and empowering. She always shows empathy, and perception, while still keeping me firmly on track with my chosen goals. I have found coaching to be a hugely useful tool both personally and professionally, and would recommend it to everyone.

Celeste Kostopoulos – Global Client Advocate Corporate Risk Solutions

Coaching with Yolanda allowed me to gain greater clarity about my professional goals and increased my confidence in my new role. She helped me clarify areas of focus for our coaching sessions, and helped me to become clear about the steps I needed to take to achieve those goals. Over the year, she has helped me to grow and expand into my new role, to match my strengths to the company’s expectations. She reinforced my achievements which gave me greater confidence about experimenting with new more empowering behaviours.

I would highly recommend coaching with Yolanda to anyone wanting to develop themselves.

Catherine Walsh – Senior Client Advocate

Yolanda’s warm and embracing energy put me at ease immediately. She gave me the support, wisdom and clarity that I needed to help formulate and launch my business plan. I am forever grateful! If you are looking for a competent, positive, deeply caring and professional coach, then I can only recommend sessions with Yolanda. Enjoy the experience!
