Attending the Power2Lead programme has made a phenomenal difference to my role as a leader. Before the course I lacked confidence in my ability to lead and had very little contentment in my role. Since attending the course, I have a renewed passion for what I do, I am so much more confident in my ability to make decisions, team interactions have improved and I now put myself forward for activities I never would have before. I now have a voice in the business and feel good about what I am able to achieve. I would highly recommend this course to any leader wanting to increase their motivation and contribution – it has had an amazing effect on our team’s, productivity and happiness!
Anjana has been indispensable in supporting and motivating all my management team, including myself. Anjana has a brilliant ability to analyse and break down issues or problems effectively, giving you many options to move forward and resolve the issue swiftly and productively. I have found Anjana to be very approachable and a great inspiration to all. The Power2Manage coaching programme she has run for the company has been tailor-made to suit our ever-changing needs. It has been pivotal in moving my management team to a whole new level.
Since attending Power2Lead, I now realise I have to change if I want to see a change from others. The programme was insightful and made me realign my priorities to what is important to me, both when it comes to business and personal life.
Since attending the Power2Lead programme I am less manic and am now able to focus on what really matters both personally and in the business…
If I knew what the course entailed before I attended, I probably never would have attended; now that I have attended I know this is exactly what I needed
The Power2Grow day was one of the most beneficial sessions of the programme. It really helped us get clear and prioritise what we needed to focus on in order to grow the business. Before the session I knew I wanted to grow but didn’t know how. Power2Grow allowed us to develop the pathway to growth.
Atlantic Data was growing rapidly in every sense of the word; we were challenged like most rapidly expanding successful companies with issues in HR and Management. Power2Progress was able to help us move forward in this area. They assisted us to overcome those initial hurdles that so often become the ‘Achilles Heel’ slowing small businesses down. The coaching style and approach to working with people offered an opportunity to identify new issues and alternative ways of resolving them. Anjana has the ability to work with people closely, to learn and understand their needs and help individuals focus on their goals and objectives. We enjoy working with Power2Progress they bring a new dimension to our business.
Before working with Power2Progress we had IT systems but lacked people systems. We knew we had plans to grow and really needed some structure in place to help with this. We now have a management with clear roles and responsibilities, significantly improved communication at board level, and below, and more structure in working with our employees. The business is moving from strength to strength. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Power2Progress to implement our next strategic plans for growth and success. Power2Progress is an asset to our company that we simply can’t afford not to invest in.
Anjana is a positive and supportive leadership coach, able to motivate and encourage managers to reflect on their practice and feel empowered to try new approaches. She is also a skilled and enthusiastic presenter and trainer. She can engage and hold an audience, helping them to assimilate and seek to adopt new thinking. With colleagues she is equally supportive and always keen to encourage and assist. Her strong interpersonal skills make it easy for her to influence managers and also make her a very ‘user-friendly’ mentor.
Since working with Power2Progress we have seen massive positive change in our business. It has really shaken things up for the better, given us clarity and up-skilled our managers. Performance has improved significantly both in terms of business and individuals, allowing me to focus on growing the business. The managers are a lot happier too!
Working with Power2Progress has helped me develop my management skills significantly. I can see the results in the team - more upbeat, pulling together and working as a collective. We now focus on what's important and deliver as a team. By simply adapting my style and implementing a few simple techniques learnt from Power2Manage, I am happier, the team are happier and we are getting more done than ever before – and in less time!
When working with Power2Progress, Anjana, in particular, has been fantastic! She follows the brief and adds to it, is conscientious and delivers on time, every time. The training always provokes insight about oneself. Included are creative, fun and engaging activities that help you think differently, understand your own management style and how that might affect your team. She brings energy, passion and a professional finish to our business.
Anjana is fantastic at what she does and in what she is able to achieve through her approach to developing the leadership capabilities of others. She is authentic in her style, authoritative in her subject and more than able in her ability to help others to help themselves become better leaders. It's been a real privilege to have worked alongside her. If you are serious about developing your capability to be a skilled and effective leader, then I would highly recommend the Power2Lead programme to you.
I have now completed the L4 Chartered Management Institute qualification and wanted to let you know how much my coach from Power2Progress has supported me through it. Inspirational coaching! My coach was very supportive and I have valued her time and knowledge immensely. The L4 training sessions they presented were extremely informative, practical and fun! Please pass on my sincere thanks.
Without these coaching sessions I would have still been stuck where I was; confused and bored. I felt all the sessions were invaluable and Anjana was able to get the best out of me through her professional approach and her will to realise the potential in me.
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Power2Progress, for their professional approach to management mentoring and training. Their expertise and persistence in these capacities have been helpful in my work as well as my personal life. The coaching provides an incredible depth of knowledge and this is matched with a learning experience that is fun and inspirational. I would not hesitate to consult with Power2Progress for any future projects and am pleased to say that Power2Progress would be an asset to any body who is seeking leadership and management development. The company came highly recommended to me and went beyond all expectations.
I really feel like Anjana's input helped me to find the way to make major strides towards my ultimate goal of improving my work life balance... Anjana's enthusiasm and confidence is catching!
Anjana has shown great enthusiasm and flexibility in all the work that she has done on our behalf. The empathy and consideration that have been displayed with our clients has been very well received and the ongoing support she has provided has greatly assisted people towards achieving their future goals.
Working with Anjana; you can rely on her to deliver on her commitments and follow up on yours so that the job is done effectively, on time and on budget. She does this through her influencing and coaching skills and assertive conversations, when needed. She loves a new challenge and is great 'on her feet' as a presenter and trainer. She can lift a team with her lively personality, sense of purpose - or that smile!
During the past 18 months I have been privileged to work with Anjana from Power2Progress on several large scale projects here at Working Transitions. Anjana has consistently approached all work with the utmost professionalism, flexibility and enthusiasm. Her communication and attitude are an asset, along with her ability to build rapport with clients and sponsors alike. This has resulted in numerous testimonials. I have been impressed by her dedication and willingness to take ownership of her clients, ensuring they all receive the highest quality bespoke support. Anjana also has the ability to relate to individuals at all levels, which in itself is an excellent quality. This, coupled with her coaching style and empathetic approach, enables Anjana to get the very best from her clients whilst truly understanding their individual needs and goals. Anjana is also extremely hardworking, organised and is a master of managing the client’s expectations. Basically, if Anjana says she will do something, it will be done. Anjana has my highest recommendation - if you are thinking about working with her, I would just do it!
Power2Progress was recommended to me for a Recruitment and Selection training course I needed to run. They delivered the course two or three times to our line managers. Power2Progress adapted the course to our needs and procedures in a stimulating and engaging manner. We received extremely good feedback from delegates and I was very happy with the results. I personally attended the recruitment course and can say first hand that it was presented in a very professional and interactive way. Their knowledge and HR experience meant that they were able to deal admirably with questions and give real examples of experience to help demonstrate the learning. I have no hesitation in recommending Power2Progress for any kind of management or leadership training.
I attended a Chartered Management Institute Level 3 course run by Power2Progress. I found it very well organised, informative, thought provoking and fun. I would recommend Power2Progress to anyone who wishes to enhance their management development as well as moving their business forward.
Anjana provided me with 1:1 career and life coaching, helping me to understand my thought processes, which enabled me to adapt to a new way of thinking. This has helped with both personal and professional development.
Anjana provided excellent support and advice while I was studying for the Chartered Management Institute L5 Certificate in Leadership and Management. Without her help I certainly would not have completed the course. She provided calm, constructive and relevant advice and was not side tracked by my ramblings during the many session it took to complete the course. Without Anjana’s help I wouldn't have had the confidence to take this enormous leap of setting up my own business and employing 8 staff – thank you for all your hard work.
Our first meeting with Anjana was at a networking group, where we soon realised how keen Anjana was to be involved in community projects across the county. She soon became involved with our work at the Northamptonshire Education Business Link. Anjana considers all projects that are passed to her. She is always willing to accommodate the needs of the learners and adapt her style and material to suit different groups.
No challenge has ever been too big for Anjana and she has always relished the opportunity to engage with learners from across the county. She has impacted on hundreds of students over the last year alone. Anjana is an extremely positive role model to our learners, she always makes an impact and is someone who the students can aspire to.
We feel very fortunate to have a supporter like Anjana whose passion and drive has a lasting effect on our students.
I have found that Anjana has an appealing and engaging coaching style that gets you to face up to the real issues in a really positive way!
Anjana has a natural coaching style that brings out the best in you.
Without your guidance and help, I would not be in the place that I am today. I think anyone that finds themselves in a difficult work situation should always contact Power2Progress.
Anjana has great enthusiasm for her work which transmits itself to those around her. She is always willing to take up a new challenge and contribute in any way she can to individuals, teams and organisations. I really enjoyed working with Anjana and would not hesitate to recommend her.
Anjana’s excellent career guidance and coaching, helped me to achieve a successful, balanced transition from permanent Executive Director-level responsibility to self-employed consultant/interim including taking on Non Executive positions in the health and education economies. She was a real pleasure to work with, leading me through the thinking and reflection process that proved fundamental to identifying the key ingredients to motivate, satisfy and challenge me that became the “filters” against which all potential opportunities were assessed. Over an elapsed 9 to 12 month period, Anjana continually challenged and supported my thinking, encouraging me to create the totally new working environment that I now enjoy. I would thoroughly recommend the “Anjana experience” to anyone looking to transition, develop or manage their career.
I decided to undertake a coaching programme with Anjana as I was looking to develop my line management and appraisal skills. The coaching I received was invaluable and has developed my skills to be able to manage, develop and lead my team positively. From the programme I was able to provide more constructive feedback to team members and encourage the team to take greater ownership, responsibility and initiative. The team is now working more independently and successfully meet targets and goals for our business to grow. I would recommend Anjana to any manager or organisation that is looking to support development in their teams. Anjana is positive and supportive, she is able to encourage adaptive approaches and help develop and grow the tools that empower good leadership and development of others. It has been great to learn from Anjanas’ experience and natural ability in this field.
Everyone is amazing - they just don't always know it! The Power2Lead taster workshop will help you to realise you are amazing!
Anjana runs the Power2Lead course in a very relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is treated as equals and it is not uncomfortable to open up at all - very empowering!
Anjana is a really helpful, motivational facilitator. I am happy to recommend her to others.
I spent a fantastic morning with Anjana looking at issues that affect me but impact on my business.
I couldn’t believe how strong I felt when I left the 'How to manage difficult people' workshop – I felt like an eagle flying through the sky. I definitely feel assured that I can deal with any awkward situations in the office now!
How to manage difficult people proved to very informative and helpful – I would definitely attend other Power2Progress courses.
Anjana has a great approach & makes people feel at ease almost instantaneously, despite the difficult conversation topic. While she ensures everyone’s having fun and working as a team, she delivers practical learning throughout which is reviewed at the end of the course. The course was very well aligned and kept everyone’s attention.
I would always recommend Anjana & Power2Progress!
