“The best Leadership Programme I attended at the near-end of my career! It gave me the mindset & practice – not easy, but right – that will help me use leadership for all parts of my life.  A revelation”

“The actors staying in character really made the message come home; it was as if I was talking to myself, my colleagues. It felt cathartic in a strange way”

““I knew using theatre would bring the core difficulties to the  fore and I even knew that everybody would be engaged; what I hadn’t expected with such tremendous depth was the level of emotional engagement and that this was the actual missing link in all our previous attempts to drive change. The amount of preparation and detail that Petra and her actors put into the programme was incredibly thorough.  Even without the follow up, the Forum Theatre has made the single biggest impact on our people in my 20 years of working in HR for this company.  I am blown away by the whole experience and cannot encourage you enough to use this method for your organisation’s biggest challenge”    

“It will help me be a better Manager/Person and this will help my business”

“The module is extremely useful for my 5 days a week of interactions with staff & clients.  I can put more effort into the same areas”

“The module exceeded my already high expectations! I believe it will be crucial to my ability to improve my own skills; but more importantly the skills of staff”  

Extremely useful course, both professionally and personally”

“I now know how to deal with my style and adapt”

“Made me more aware of my emotions and how to use them beneficially; sometimes a style you don’t normally use can be influential”

“Gave me more confidence in myself and our team as a unit; looking forward to facing challenges that lie ahead”

“The exercises were energising, thought-provoking and very constructive”

“Great to have the practice – it proved the theory”

“The Barometer was a valuable tool to examine our team and working on ways to improve”

“Highlighted the importance of non-language communication; particular as we are in Finance”

“Practising what seemed ‘an easy thing to do’ was very confronting.  I did not realise that”

“It was great to get the immediate feedback from others on how you come across – really powerful to know”

“It’s relevant to team meetings, client presentations, speaking at any event – I am more positive now that I can be a good speaker”

“Very refreshing to learn techniques from the theatre world that are so relevant to my day-to-day job”

“Prepare, prepare, prepare – I’ll never forget the importance of it after this”

“I learned to breathe, I mean – really breathe!”

   “The experiential method was good – in the safe environment Petra created it was possible to step out of the comfort zone”

“The initial preparation questionnaire gave me an indication it was going to be different then other sessions, more participative; my expectations were – gladly – met”

“The feedback from role plays and presentations were of great value + the fact you could practice it again”

“I realise that using the coaching style will be the only way I can show people that I have avoided or find difficult to connect to, that I am really interested in their story”

“It’s great to do this together with colleagues, so they understand the obstacles I am trying to overcome”

“I didn’t expect to learn so much. I also didn’t expect it to be so enjoyable. I really liked it and found I will retain the learning”

“The experiential method was good; it’s o.k. to try & ‘fail’ on the way to getting better”

“I have a better understanding now of my impact and how others perceive me.
