What People Say...

“Engaging, research based and practical learning – some of the best Professional Learning I’ve attended and provides real, tangible take-aways for practical application – short-term and long-term changes in practice. Fantastic for galvanising our leadership team. Thank you to Dan and Tim – wonderful to work with.”
Andrew Backhouse
Principal | NSW Department of Education
“They created immediate and lasting high-quality impact on a wide-ranging group of leaders from the Australian arm of our ASX20 listed company. The feedback was the highest for any external contributor over the past 7 years. I rarely provide recommendations, but I am delighted to do so for Dan Haesler and his team.”
Phillip Austin
President, Asia Pacific | CHEP
"They were engaged to assist our coaching staff in understanding Growth Mindset – the research, it’s benefits and how to develop it for themselves and our aspiring tennis players. The response from the coaching staff was overwhelmingly positive. Dan & Tim were highly engaging and supportive at each step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
