"Terry Williams is amazing, I have completed numerous personal training courses in NZ and AUS and I can say hand on heart that Terry is the most interesting and knowledgeable instructor I have had the pleasure of learning from. I would recommend his services to any of my professional colleagues." - Brad Almond, Kia Motors

"I came away feeling incredibly empowered and challenged to improve, really think about what I write and how I write! It was not just the writing context that challenged my perspective and way of thinking, but the confidence to believe in myself again after having worked within an environment whereby I questioned was I in the right role. So, thank you for making a difference". - Angela Skelton, Auckland District Health Board
"The workshop and presenter were both very good and highly recommended. The presenter was excellent – Terry was very engaging and had an entertaining style which kept my interest (even though I had attended a similar workshop before), and explained the content extremely well. He seemed very knowledgeable and experienced in these forms of presentation and was able to tailor/relate the workshop to suit the audience. He certainly added value well over and above the accompanying printed materials". - Kylie Mooney, Meredith Connell

This can be as digital or analog as you can handle. A series of phone calls and/or zoom sessions can raise individuals to their best performance above the noise, distractions, and dangers. You're reacting right now which is completely understandable but there will be a plateau within weeks. What have you got in place to engage and support your people then? Adrenalin only gets them so far.
A primary criticism from users of online learning has been that it's linear, one-way and passive. With Terry's highly interactive energy and facilitation of 'sideways-learning' within the group, you can get close to the face-to-face experience and fast-track your personal-effectiveness and people-support skills to lead change and build resilience. Business-as-usual is disrupted. You've got people all over the place and with new priorities under pressure, with rules non-existent or changing rapidly. There are home and family to think about as well. Is your personal 'reservoir of resilience' ready for this? Is your team's? Everyone's health and safety is paramount and part of that is a toolkit to focus the mind, think critically, get results, keep well physically and mentally, as well as bring everyone along for the ride. And, set yourself up for springing forward post-crisis.
In high-stress times of enforced change, people need to be ready and resilient. I can coach individuals or groups through a quick set of practical tips in 1-3 hours to raise themselves above the fray and bring their people along for the ride. To not just survive the experience, but be the better for it.
