The WEST programme has changed my life. The coaches, the platform and the managerial philosophy combine in a unique way to create a learning experience that stands proud of conventional leadership/followership courses.
I feel indebted to the coaches who provided timely wisdom and advice. I feel privileged to have had access to the simulated learning environment where I could test in real time the coaches' (and fellow programme participants') recommendations. My confidence built quickly in areas of weakness - to which I was previously blind.
Applying the learnings was immediate. With the assistance of one of the WEST coaches I introduced new practices into a large project for a world leading mining giant. The team environment was noticeably different within weeks.
It's also important to add that I interact with my wife and family differently. I also interact with my own thoughts differently and the positive effects this has had is a blessing.
