“The Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland CCGs’ commissioned KSL Consulting to deliver a series of workshops during 2020 designed to support leaders and staff through a period of organisational change.  After the first few workshops were delivered and in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, we asked Karen to change the method of delivery from face to face to online.  Karen embraced the challenge and delivered a series of workshops along with group and individual coaching sessions via MS Teams and went above and beyond to ensure the programme was a success which was reflected in delegate feedback”.

Re leadership programme for two NHS Trust in Derbyshire:

“Karen has a collaborative approach, working with us to shape the programme but also very receptive to feedback from us, making adjustments in delivery where necessary.  She is very supportive and encouraging with delegates, drawing on a range of experience and expertise.”

“I found the Career Coaching tremendously helpful. Karen was well suited to my needs and values, and my personal development has moved on exponentially in just a handful of meetings. I found the whole experience to be the start of a journey in both my career and me personal life.

 

I now have a far better balance of work, life and personal goals which has meant that my work/life balance has improved significantly. I also have more self awareness as well as more confidence in my strengths and abilities. My work situation changed towards the end of the coaching, and thanks to the programme I feel prepared and ready to face new challenges.”

– Managing Director

“Thank you for encouraging me to take the time to undertake coaching following events of last year.  I am writing really to express the value Karen Ledger offered to me which was bespoke and responsive to my changing needs and feelings.  This was a transformational experience which facilitated a deeper understanding of myself and acceptance of circumstances and the behaviours of others.

 

I went into the process without any expectations, I certainly did not expect to feel the acceptance and resilience I do now.  I must praise Karen’s professionalism, supportive challenge, safe place offering and respect.

 

She is a god send and may be the answer to others’ prayers in the difficult times we have ahead.”

“I found them (coaching sessions) extremely helpful in the sense that they were personalised to meet my needs as a LCCG Board member. The sessions were very flexible, though Karen picked up on important areas to focus on, and fed these back to me in preparation for the following session.

 

As you can imagine, the ‘brave new world’ can be as scary as exciting and these sessions were very useful in allowing me to focus on my strengths as well as weaknesses. As a result of the work with Karen, I felt more self-assured and ready to tackle challenge ahead (and I was part of the LCCG panel that went into battle on behalf oh LCCG in the Authorisation site visit-and we did very well!).

 

Thank you very much to you Karen for your invaluable input.”
