We have benefited from the services of Alison from Leadership Evolution in the development and implementation of a Leadership Development Program targeted at our senior and General Managers for the last 3 years.
Alison worked closely with us to truly understand our strategic business objectives and culture and as a result developed and delivered a program that is not only specific and relevant to the needs of our organisation, but also ensured integration and linkages with previous programs, established performance management tools and corporate artefacts.
Without exception the implementation of this program has resulted in demonstrable improvement in our leaders. We would recommend Alison and Leadership Evolution to anyone looking to implement effective training programs that achieve results.

Leadership Program Participant: I wish I had known this years ago! It would have saved me a lot of pain and managed the relationships with the people I worked with a lot better.

Organisation Culture: We always thought we knew what was going on in our business and even what was our passion, driving force and values, but after the Culture Check, which Alison conducted, we had a clear picture on paper of who we are as described by our key people. All of a sudden our key people accepted our past, got present and we designed our future without hesitation. Our results since the culture check speak for themselves - 20% sales increase and a settled staff taking on more responsibility. Thanks Alison.

Leadership Development: As an Executive Coach, Alison was always keen to listen and then provide suggestions on how to approach a variety of situations in my workplace. Alison assisted me with one on one coaching as well as facilitating a Myers-Briggs Workshop with my team. In all settings, Alison's astute observations, insights and practical advice have enabled me to better reflect and continue to develop into a strong leader. My team are still telling me how interesting and useful the Myers Briggs Workshop was!

Facilitation and Planning: The planning workshop was a fantastic success. Alison did a great job facilitating and held things together in spite of various distractions. She creates a friendly and upbeat atmosphere, while keeping the group on-task and the outputs productive. I’ve received very positive feedback from all the participants, including those who wouldn’t normally make a comment.

Executive Coaching: I recently concluded my coaching sessions with Alison Jardie and recommend her services to anyone who would like support to achieve goals or solve problems. With her relaxed style and incisive questions, Alison assisted me to articulate my objectives. She employed practical and fun techniques to tap into my motivation and draw on my own skills and resources. Alison made astute observations and encouraged me to trial new ways of interacting with people to improve outcomes. She supplied me with resources that enhanced my learning journey and encouraged personal reflection. My time with Alison has helped me to improve my performance and achieve results.
Tony Hancocks, Manager, Queensland Health
Executive Coaching: As a coach, Alison was excellent – a listener, able to challenge, probe and affirm. Her feedback to me about my performance was valuable and practical. She provided strategies to practice to improve aspects of performance, including negotiation skills. This was a valuable learning experience. I would recommend coaching for anyone who wants to improve their performance. And I recommend Alison as a coach able to accurately assess areas of strength and weakness. For me it was about learning to capitalise on my strengths and develop strategies to improve the areas that need improvement for me to be a more effective leader in my organisation. In all, a valuable experience that helped me clarify my goals, abilities and emotional and professional needs. This resulted in a commitment to improve my work/life balance to ensure effectiveness, better health and well-being.
