I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Lily as part of the syllabus of the Goldman Sachs 10KSB course covering Leadership, People and Growth. The tools, guidance and insight she provided changed my game and improved my skills in these areas no-end, it has also helped develop the skills of other people within our business.
It has given us absolute clarity on what we needed to do to build our business around our people and given us the ability to grow the great culture we had even further. From the very start I just felt that Lily was genuine, her style is truly engaging and her techniques and style keep you engaged and smiling throughout.
I graduated from her Strategic Leaders Programme last year and have absolutely loved every second of it. It’s definitely provided me with exactly what I needed – the perfect balance between support and challenge.
The thing that makes this course stand out from the rest is everything is geared towards the practical application of the leadership learning back into your business.
As a result, we’ve re-branded, re-structured and have a new strategy that has underpinned our growth and success over the past 18 months. If you’re considering investing in this course I would say ‘do it!’ … I know it’s an investment you won’t regret.
The program that Morgan James developed, specifically for our business, team and way of working, was exceptional. Our assigned facilitator Michael was brilliant – he helped us to quickly gel as a team, allowing us to challenge each other in a safe environment.
The Step into Management program, delivered by Lily and Paul, was a perfect fit for their needs and was tailored for our business. The delivery of the program was, again, excellent, the growth and development of all the mangers has been a huge success.
Working with Morgan James has enabled me to develop a team that can run the business, leaving me to move away from day to day operations and concentrate on the future. I can’t recommend working with Morgan James highly enough. They were a key part of our jigsaw, enabling us as a team to believe in our Vision and turn the business around.
Whether you are a natural or otherwise, there is so much more to effective leadership than what you assume will make a team successful. Once the Strategic Leaders facilitator team have stripped away your pre-conceptions and bad habits and you accept what you don’t know, you can start on a path towards real improvement of yourself and your team. It’s hard, it’s challenging but it’s absolutely worth it.
She’s far too pretty and skinny. If she wasn’t so ******* lovely, you’d have her put in a box. Seriously you can trust Lily to deliver the best. She’s bloody brilliant at what she does.
Lily was delivering the leadership elements of the Goldman Sachs 10KSB programme when I met her. Consequently, when I graduated, along with others on the cohort, Lily offered us a continued learning experience via her ‘Growth Springboard’ Program.
Three years on, myself and 5 other business leaders meet regularly, share our challenges (and solutions) and study best business practice, all facilitated by Lily. She is knowledgeable, challenging and has access to a myriad of business experts who support her in delivering Growth Springboard. Being part of this group has had a huge impact on my business and has given me exactly what I need, particularly during tough times. If you’re a business owner or a Managing Director and would like to make your business more enjoyable and more successful, I totally recommend you speak to Lily about joining a Growth Springboard Group.
We have been working with Lily on the Growth Springboard Program for almost 3 years now. We are a group of 6 business owners who all challenge & support each-other, and hold each-other accountable…thus preventing us from falling back into our comfort zones after the Goldman Sachs 10KSB course. We trust each-other implicitly & all feel that this is an essential part of our business…highly recommended!
I cannot praise the Step into Management course highly enough. Excellent coaches, delivery and content which challenges and inspires you to reflect and develop. Building on skills you already possess and nurturing skills that are newly acquired. Application of these skills is key and the activities set beyond the sessions take you outside your comfort zone, motivating you and ensuring continuous personal development, whilst growing and involving your team. Fantastic!
Paul has an amazing (sic) ability to make people around him feel immediately comfortable and relaxed> I have never been on a course that’s kept me engaged for more than an hour, but Paul’s delivery enables me to hold concentration, pay attention and learn in every session. If only I’d had teachers like him at school.
Paul’s a wonderfully engaging teacher. I’m getting so much out of this course and doing it with colleagues means we’re aligning our thinking which is the key to success of leading our business as a team.
