Testimonial from Emma Barrett, Cantel Medical UK

‘After Clare coached me on Behavioural Styles I have used the knowledge to think about and change the way I communicate, also the style of the person I am communicating with, and I feel I have been building relationships between me and my colleagues. I can categorically say that behaviour does breed behaviour…. If I send a pleasant friendly email, or speak in a calm friendly manner, that’s what I get in return!! Even socially outside of work, I find myself thinking “how would Clare want me to respond?” before I write that email, or speak to someone. Thank you for making it so easy to follow!
