I would like to take the opportunity to say that I am completely blown away by your approach. Your ability to make such a significant impact in such a short space of time had left me feeling motivated and determined to achieve my goals after each session. This started firstly by helping me realise what my goals were! It is such a precious skill to help someone become more focused and reflective in such a motivating, intelligent, open manner. Thank you for your time, direction, and tailored approach.

A huge thank you to Lesley for developing and delivering our coaching programme. The programme was highly appropriate for our business and her delivery style allowed us all to ‘open up’ and get the most from the training. Overall the course was transformational for us, both on an individual and business level. I would highly recommend LJK Resources to organisations wishing to understand and practice the basics of coaching.

I was bored, demotivated and unhappy with the way my career was going. I felt stuck at a job that I didn’t like and felt worthless, talentless and had completely lost hope that anyone would ever want to employ me. All my previous attempts to change my situation were unsuccessful which knocked my confidence further. Then I met Lesley.
Lesley provided me with four work coaching sessions and they completely changed my life. She helped me to see myself and my career from a different perspective and re-route my thoughts into a positive and effective action plan. Lesley helped me to remove my mental barriers that were stopping me from reaching my goals and to get my confidence back. With her support I rediscovered what I wanted to achieve professionally.
I can’t thank Lesley enough for helping me to get me back in charge of my career. I have now enrolled on a counselling course, something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and started applying for jobs. I feel really positive about my career and have my usual spark back. Thank you again!.

After just one coaching session with Lesley my business outlook was revolutionised. While reconsidering our place in the market, Lesley's coaching helped me clear my head, consider our position more clearly and helped set up a positive plan of action. Good businesses aren't run from ivory towers and Lesley's coaching helps you to take a step back and retain perspective.

Lesley has done a range of work for us over the past few years - she bench marked our sickness absence management procedures, provided specialist HR support to our organisation restructure and reviewed our HR policies and procedures. We have been very pleased with the work she has done for us and found her approach friendly but professional. In particular she made suggestions for reorganising our HR function which enabled us to make higher than expected cost savings. I have no hesitation in recommending her

Lesley made a significant contribution to or was responsible for a number of our projects over a 2 year period. Lesley was able to tackle any challenge we threw at her and her credibility with internal clients developed rapidly.
Lesley assisted us with a review of our staff structure to help clarify future staffing levels, reporting lines and improve staff motivation. Lesley's calm, thorough and professional approach enabled staff to feel engaged in the project and resulted in positive proposals for the future. We hope Lesley will work further with us on some of the issues arising from the review.
Lesley is a resourceful asset to any business. She quickly established relationships with the key influencers in the business and was able to identify the critical areas of focus to drive change through the company. For example, leadership had been identified as an area of development.
Lesley sourced and worked with a supplier to develop a programme and gained commitment from the Executive Committee to sponsor a pilot programme. The success of this led to a further two programmes being run and the whole of the leadership team taking part. The initiatives around leadership continue to grow throughout our division as a result.
Lesley's competence, capability and flexibility brought great benefit to the department and the business. She provides focus for objectives, clarity of process and quality of delivery
Perhaps most importantly she achieved buy-in from all levels of management - particularly impressive given that there was more than the normal level of resistance to change
