What better way to understand the impact of our work, than through the words of those we work with. Here is what they say.
“I feel like I have grown a new set of antennae … to be more engaged with the individuals and more aware of what the group may need… when you influence the atmosphere in the room, and people realize they can talk, and they can suggest … they have agency. You empower, they empower, everything feeds itself.”Zoë Beyers Concertmaster, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, December 2022
“As a result of the course I am more aware of my ability to make other people’s working days individually more satisfying. And I’m aware that – because I can – I have a responsibility to try to do that!”Joseph Crouch Principal Cello, December 2022
“I would highly recommend the coaching and mentoring training at Guildhall. Right from the word go you start from the practical. You get instant feedback in a highly supportive context. You learn excellent, useful content which over time you begin to embed into your practice in an intuitive way.”Colin Tapscott Director, March 2022
“Guildhall Ignite taught me the OSCAR coaching method, which outlined how to broach conversations and different techniques for talking to people. I learned things about myself I hadn’t realised before, I considered how confronting a why question can be. I ask ‘why’ a lot and there is a right time for that. At GSMD you learn how to frame those ‘why’ questions.”Shaniqua Benjamin Poet, Facilitator and Community Leader, March 2022
“The coaching I did at Guildhall has been incredibly helpful. Especially the techniques of taking a step back and not being confrontational, taking a broader approach looking in. It resolved things, it’s made a lot of situations much clearer and easier. It’s made my working life so much easier.”Ursula Paludan Monberg Musician, Natural Horn, September 2022
