Testimonials for PBS Coaching Practice Programme

Jill Lockett Operations Manager, Bolton Cares
Really well delivered, it was so good to see my team’s enthusiasm and for them to have light bulb moments relating to the things I know that are issues within their teams.  The trainer was really knowledgeable and has lots of real life examples from her experiences which is very powerful.  All of the workshop days were excellent!

Rachelle Russell – Operations Director, Bright Futures Care.
We had our senior leadership meeting this week. I asked for feedback on how the first cohort found the PBS Coaching in Practice programme. It was overwhelmingly positive; with a number agreeing that it was the best training that they have EVER undertaken. Thank you so much!

Ruth Worley CEO – Supporting Independence
I have been so pleased with the PBS Coaching in Practice Programme provided by Redstone PBS.  Its provided staff within our organisation a really good understanding of PBS and also a tool kit to support them in their role. I think the folders are brilliant well laid out that enable the learning to continue. The check lists ensure that the different areas are being filled out correctly keeping everyone focused. No other company offers this which can be used as continuous learning without having to have a tutor.  
The coaching sessions will be invaluable in ensuring staff have someone external to our organisation to talk to about implementing PBS.
