“It was a great way to understand my behaviour and why I act a certain way in different situations. It has also given me a better understanding of how other people view situations and how I can adapt my management style.”
Ceredig Williams, Academic Account Manager, Bioscientifica Ltd
“The assessments were unique to each person, and we were invited to share results so trends could be spotted. It was really useful to have your own specific results to identifying strengths as well as what could be worked on, as we’re all individuals and are different. It was really useful to see how theory plays out in reality, and demonstrating that plans can actually work and have impact. The development plans at the ned of the workshop provide a clear way forward to develop certain traits so if we want to change we can, and our brains will change, too. I think this is really interesting, as we tend to think we’re born a particular way and that’s just the way we are. Thanks again.”

“I really enjoyed the paradoxes. I found it incredibly valuable to actually plot out the results and see where I fall. I think they are really quite accurate, and plotting it out helped me truly identify certain areas for improvement. I found a lot of value in the reflection exercise after each of these also. I feel it’s forcing me to truly evaluate my actions/inactions honestly and recognize what I could be doing better.”
