“The leadership coaching activity enabled the management groups to develop their personal resilience when dealing with challenging situations and ‘historical, old groove’ conversations. Through the coaching programme, leaders and managers developed a greater sensitivity to the situations where defined conversations were necessary and consciously employed a greater skill in delivering these conversations.”
