« The organizational effectiveness survey for the City and the Human Synergistics leadership profiles set up by Colin Newhouse & Associates, enabled us to identify and set in motion concrete actions to improve our effectiveness as a team. »

City of St-Lambert
François Vaillancourt, General Manager

"Top marks for your ‘360° Leadership’ program and the coaching session that followed. The 360° leadership profile and the perception of those around us at work, leads us to positively challenge our ‘egos’ and the way we approach work, but especially it helps us to grow, not only as leaders but as human beings…We cannot ask more than that!"

''I achieved a huge payback from the '360° Team Leadership' programme. In particular, I found the 1-on-1 coaching session to have a very positive impact on my leadership style. It has allowed me to improve my listening styles and to install a participative climate in my business unit. This has been very productive on several projects, for example on our recent cost-reduction initiative. I can highly recommend this programme for Senior Managers. ''
