We have worked with Bolt through 2015 and in that time have grown from being global professionals, spread across our region, to becoming a connected and collaborative team. Lou’s approach is fresh, energised and enables a feeling of safety that supported us to come out of our comfort zone! She taught us various techniques, that we have gone on to share with our teams, where in a non-judgmental manner, she encouraged us to dig deep into our true feelings which helped us identify our values and needs, find solutions to problems and ultimately unite as a group. Lou is prepared to challenge individuals to ensure the results are gained which is what makes Bolt unique to others. I would wholly recommend their services to any management team, in any organisation. Thank you to Lou and the Bolt Team!
I valued your honesty, relating concepts to your own experiences both in and out of work. This made the theory come to life which helped get the message across. I liked the way you both challenged our thinking and kept checking back in to consolidate our learning. High energy, enthusiastic and well-paced.
The Bolt facilitators are amazing. Not sure where they get the energy from! They engaged us all and always looked out for our Iberia colleagues, in terms of their understanding and helping them engage in the conversations. It’s obvious that they all love their job and are so passionate about the topics they discuss. Each of them are welcoming, comforting and encouraging and they all managed the large group well, while also getting to know each individual.
I would describe my experience of working with Bolt as Challenging, soul searching and life changing. I have especially valued their willingness to speak up and listen in equal measure.
I found it valuable, the content allowed me to examine myself and how I approach people as well as tasks whether work or personal. It was quite an eye opener. Lou you were amazing and really gave of yourself and integrated with all the girls as if you were part of the team. Not only was the content excellent but the delivery was excellent too. Nothing I would change and have no hesitation in recommending this training to others.
The impact of the leadership lifeline was very useful: how sharing leads to more sharing, this had a huge impact on trust across the team as did Jo’s excellent facilitation and ability to ‘call it’. All members of the team quickly warmed to Jo which meant all were willing to share some very personal information in her presence and most likely because of it. Am struggling to think of anything to improve, this was one of the best, if not the best team development session I’ve taken part in.
Bolt are utterly professional and inspirational in all their interactions/engagements with us. You immediately feel the breadth and depth of their experience helping individuals and teams in business succeed beyond their expectations. Their approach has always been fresh and tailored to our needs. I cannot recommend them enough.
I have valued so much about Lou in our coaching sessions. She knows how to challenge, encourage and elicit all the answers that you need to find your way of tackling any issue. It’s either a gift or borne out of a wealth of experience – probably both.
You were very down to earth, open and encouraging. You created a non-threatening environment which resulted in the team sharing a great deal more than we ever have before. We all felt that you enabled us to bond as a team by encouraging openness.
The day was absolutely amazing and the delegates are still on a high!
I valued Jo’s honesty and her input into every day issues which I now manage more effectively. She gives an overall positive approach to challenges which I face on a daily basis and has enabled me with tools to handle challenges with confidence.
