transformation stories from Leaders like you

I recently attended an executive leadership programme that was designed to increase and grow strength in this space with a small number of colleagues at Carnival UK. Pheona’s sessions were designed to ensure everyone was included and engaged at all times, accommodating many different styles and mindsets. The pace of the programme and way in which the topics and modules were covered resulted by far in one the most rewarding and thorough courses I’ve been attended to date. The strengths and ‘new muscle’ I’ve grown from this programme and continue to practice has benefited me greatly in continuing to improve my leadership style, expanded my toolkit on how I engage and support team members and peers and achieve our shared goals.
Pheona has supported our organisation over the past 5 years facilitating senior Leadership programs and coaching key individuals. Pheona has a calm and subtle approach that pushes teams outside of their comfort zones enabling them to rethink and reframe they way they work and behave. Her depth of knowledge and experience is evident in the way she develops people and teams. Pheona's sessions are highly interactive, thought provoking and at times challenging. Delegate feedback is always excellent with practical examples of the difference the learning has made. I cannot recommend Pheona highly enough for her professionalism, integrity and wisdom.
I recently had the opportunity to attend a [second] Leadership Strength Programme, facilitated by Pheona. Pheona is an experienced, informative, and insightful coach who helped me gain more confidence in the workplace and made me think more deeply about my role as a leader. Pheona works at a good pace and coaches in styles that fits with everyone. Pheona kept our group engaged the whole time throughout the programme. She helped me change my approach and outlook both personally and professionally and I would highly recommend Pheona as a coach to anyone who gets the opportunity to work with her.
I was fortunate enough to undertake a leadership development course and 1:1 coaching with Pheona and although it may seem dramatic to say, the perspective she gave, the mechanisms she taught me and the ways she helped me reframe my thinking have been totally transformative for me in both my professional and personal life. I've connected more deeply with my team, had the confidence to be open about my boundaries and my talents and identified the limiting beliefs that were holding me back at work. I'd heartily recommend her to anyone.
I have just completed a series of three coaching sessions with Pheona. What a fantastic experience. She gently led me to a deeper understanding of my own behaviours and has helped me create a meaningful plan that builds on areas of my career and self development. I would say that some of the insight I’ve gained has been profound and needless to say I gained massively from taking the time to talk with her and trust in the process she took me through. I would highly recommend Pheona.
During 2019 I experienced the leadership program from Pheona. During this program we talked about leadership models, how to influence, Belbin roles and many more. Pheona also took us on a personal journey. Find your why, learn about yourself and about who I am. This made me conscious of my behavior as a leader, how i can develop and grow the coming years. Pheona found the right balance between theory, personal insights, team development and as we called fluffy stuff. I both learned and enjoyed this program very much and can recommend this to everyone who wants to grow and develop as a leader, or to every company who wants to improve team work.
Richella has been my business & performance coach for almost a year now and in that time, she has offered me world-class coaching that I am continually grateful for. In my opinion, it is rare to find a coach who can repeatedly evoke a sense of new insight and positive transformation in another, and that is exactly what Richella has done for me. Through her coaching, it is evident that Richella has a wealth of knowledge and experience, particularly in the areas of neuroscience/performance/leadership coaching and this undoubtedly raises the quality & impactfulness of her coaching to a completely different level!
Richella's passion and commitment to Coaching powered by Neuroscience is one of her many brilliant qualities. I had the pleasure of partnering up with Richella for six professional Coaching & Mentoring sessions, each session propelled me forward with new thinking in a thought provoking and meaningful way. Richella has the ability to build rapport quickly and get to the story behind the story. I recommend Richella highly as a Coach, and as a facilitator for the Diploma in Coaching with Neuroscience course I completed with Positive Success Group. The transformation Richella evoked in me has been a real game changer for my growth and development.
I work with Richella to arrange training for corporate clients in both public and private sector. Richella delivers training for us on topics ranging from Leadership to The Science of Stress Regulation and feedback is consistently excellent. Participants love her energy and training style. From my perspective as a person arranging training, Richella is wonderful to work alongside. First and foremost I know the client will be well looked after and receive first-rate training. But also Richella is easy to deal with. She responds quickly to requests and is straightforward. She is reliable and always very pleasant. She has amazing energy and an exceptional facilitative approach.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend both Richella and Sandown Business School, because I've had the joyful experience of working with her in two separate capacities. Firstly she offered me expert coaching at a time when my life had reached a crossroads, providing guidance and clarity when I found myself at a difficult juncture. Richella did this in her own unique enthusiastic style - as a client I discovered that her positive approach to life is quite contagious, she's always informed, never patronizing and manages to get to the root of the issue quickly.
Richella has been a tremendous support for me. She knows when to simply listen, positively challenge or push me out of your comfort zone while always routing for me. I already trusted her during my corporate journey and she has now become a fantastic coaching supervisor for me with her strong business acumen.
I cannot recommend Richella Boggan enough for her friendly approach to people of all abilities, her lengthy knowledge of coaching and neuroscience, plus, her genuine kindness to support all clients to reach their personal and professional goals in life.
