“Geraldine worked with our team, and blew everyone away with her warmth, ability to connect to the team and sharp insight into our dynamics and approach. She was highly flexible and creative, able to adapt to changing contexts and helped us really move forward in our ways of working and communication with each other.
Geraldine has an amazing ability to make people feel at home and safe but also stretched at the same time, and she enabled our team to really say what was on their mind through this sense of safety.
As a leader I felt totally supported and encouraged, and felt I could completely trust her. The result is that the team started to share responsibility more equally, be more open and ultimately shifted the performance of our organisation. Thank you Geraldine!”
Naomi Telfer, CEO, The Sophie Hayes Foundation
"We made quite some progress after our sessions with Geraldine, learning to adapt, respect and support each other. Calling out issues quickly and ensuring that we have the right conversations. We have our mission statement now in place and we are happy to have also engaged the rest of the organisation in this process.
I have learnt to listen and allow others to express their views/opinions. I have also made it a point to keep an open mind and am valuing people more, focusing on how I can support them to enable us succeed as a team. I am amazed at how much impact the little I say/do has"

Geraldine did a superb job working with me at proSapient where, as a new chairman, I was keen to improve the communication and effectiveness of my senior leadership team. The off-site team development day was excellent. Highlighting where our challenges were and in some places lack of capacity as a team to deal with those challenges. The offsite was successful because everybody trusted Geraldine. She didn’t have an agenda of her own and ensured that everyone had a voice and the real issues got flushed out despite the “big personalities” in the room (myself included!).
The follow up live-coaching in our Executive Meetings really helped ensure the lessons from the offsite were kept front of mind. We remain a work in progress but Geraldine has helped massively in moving us forward at a critical stage in our growth.

I have known Geraldine's great work for many years. Recently she facilitated a team session for me. Her design was spot on for what we needed, enabling some powerful conversations to happen. She led the session with considerable skill and elegance.
Geraldine was able to read and hold the group giving both space and tangible tools for us to use as we move forward. Her team session deepened trust and laid the groundwork for us to face some tricky challenges ahead with a sense of shared purpose and ability to work together.
