Every Brightside coaching conversation includes feedback at its core. Whether it is traditional 360 feedback using an Appreciative Inquiry framework, or regular and sustained feedback based on what Georgina observes in an individual or team, feeback forms the back bone of Brightside’s practice.
As a team Georgina has led us towards making some important changes in the ways that we work that have resulted in much quicker decision making – in a fast growing business that was one of our most difficult tasks before – now at times we’re really flying.
Georgina is incredibly grounded, genuine and lives and operates to her values, which in turn generates real trust and stimulating, meaningful conversations. She is as sharp as a razor, has a great ability to listen and cut to the quick with quality dialogue, insight and questions.
Georgina helped me grow as a leader, to be myself with confidence, to understand and not to lose myself in difficult times.
We appreciated the Exec Team day that Georgina ran for us – and the work she put in to prepare for it. In my opinion, it was the best facilitated day we as a team have ever spent together.
Georgina's style of engagement gives people the confidence to trust her without reservation.
Georgina remembers the details, what you’ve previously discussed and talks to people as individuals. It’s clear Georgina prepares before sessions and comes having spoken to most of us individually so knows what the room wants to get out of a session. Georgina is extremely adaptable during a day and has a great balance of keeping us on track and to the agenda whilst being flexible and allowing the conversation to flow.
Georgina's creativity helped us structure the agenda around multiple objectives. Her keen insight on individuals and team dynamics kept us focused on our goals, which was instrumental to what the team felt was a transformational experience.
Georgina gives 100% of herself to me whenever we meet. She is manifestly there for me. Having said that, she then plays the part of a critical friend perfectly.
Georgina is able to win people's confidence through her friendly, unthreatening and engaging approach. She is effective in encouraging them to be open in discussion and thereby achieves a high quality of interaction. People almost always leave meetings she has facilitated feeling lifted by the experience.
Georgina is very easy to talk to. She helps me make sense of things. After having talked with Georgina I always have a clear way forward.
Georgina managed to put us at ease very quickly, providing valuable feedback and getting the best out of us. We realised how much progress we had made thanks to her leadership - the process was smooth and clearly structured.
Georgina connects with deep wellsprings of motivation and aspiration and is able to reflect back one’s thinking and imagining with the clarity of a poet and the loyalty of a friend.
We came away with a fundamental strengthening of trust; understanding of our group pitfalls and a road map for continuing our leadership evolution.
Georgina's interaction with the team has been a catalyst for much deeper reflecting together and appreciation of each other’s gifts. This has released energy and enhanced our capacity to work together more effectively and to see more clearly the contributions we are each bringing to the team.
Georgina prepares very thoroughly and thoughtfully and she can be fun to be with.
Georgina is professional, but friendly. She goes to the heart of my motivation and practice, exposing my defence mechanisms along the way. She always leaves me in a different place from when we began.
I appreciate Georgina’s passion, commitment and drive for her client, the thought and structure Georgina puts into her work eg relevant articles, pre-and post emails, and also Georgina’s strength, courage and resilience to hold the moment.
