Roksana is a great professional in the Organisational Development / coaching/mentoring sector. While I was Interim CEO at Shaw Trust she worked exceptionally well with me and the senior team to help develop our effectiveness as individuals and as a team. Her great interpersonal skills helped get the best out of every single person in the team, however quiet (or loud!) they were. I would recommend Roksana to any organisation who needs help in developing individuals, teams or wider organisation.
I have used Roksana for a number of group training courses and one to one sessions. The quality of the training and the positive outcomes achieved have always been excellent. Roksana is so engaging and has everyone working well together and learning right from the start. With our recent MBTI training the team really learnt a lot about themselves as individuals, the part that they play in the team and how to get the most out of working with each other. I look forward to continuing to work with Roksana and Apex Mindset.
After 25 years of having extremely low confidence affecting both my personal and professional life and having tried various ways to remedy it, I was impressed by the difference only 9 coaching sessions with Roksana made. She was extremely caring, supportive and going the extra mile, helping me to achieve my overall goal: becoming more confident by breaking it down into small areas to work on which impacted my daily activities at work. It only took two sessions with her for me and my colleagues to notice the difference. The activities I was avoiding a few weeks before have now become normal and more than that I actually enjoy doing them. I now feel way more confident and surprisingly more happy which has enabled me to reach the next step in my career. I cannot thank and recommend Roksana enough!
Roksana is a true professional. One of the projects we worked on was revealing the Myers Biggs Type Indicator for the whole team I worked in. This was a very interesting and extremely valuable activity which led to big improvements to how our team work together. Roxy has a brilliant understanding of strategy and its importance to the success of an organisation. I recommend Roxy to anyone looking to unleash the power of their people
I had a fantastic day learning about MBTI, my only regret was that it wasn’t two days as the content was so interesting and so applicable. More people in business should invest the time to understand their profile as it has massive value in terms of self-awareness and awareness of the people you work with. The workshop was invaluable for me in terms of learning how to recognise and understand that everyone has complementary skill and personality traits and that there is huge value in working together to get the right combination of traits to get the best results. Roksana made the content really engaging and got just the right balance of delivering content to the group directly and letting the people in the workshop collaborate and learn together through structured exercises and discussions.
Roxy’s DISC training was informative, interesting, entertaining and, above all, enlightening. I learned so much about myself, but also found out how to get the best out of others by understanding their personalities and making simple changes to the way we communicate. The potential for better relationships at work (and at home!) is huge. Roxy is a great guide on this voyage of discovery – or DISCovery – and I’d highly recommend the training.
I had the enormous privilege of being a delegate on Roksana's course on Motivational Interviewing. She was incredibly skilled at delivering the course, so much so that I imagine that other delegates didn’t notice the technical things that she did to facilitate the learning. She knew her subject inside out and easily provided examples and different perspectives to help the group to understand. The whole thing was beautifully paced and structured. Roxy managed to combine three things in an exceptional way - Knowledge about her subject and understanding about how it impacts on clients - The ability to communicate the concepts well to a range of different people, with very different backgrounds - An elegant, seamless delivery style, that helped us learn without it feeling intense or "teachy". This was some of the best training I have ever had.
Roxy you are a natural trainer and have the knowledge and expertise to engage, educate and motivate a large group of colleagues. I loved your course and I loved the energy and commitment you exuded, thank you so much. Also very grateful for the comprehensive workbook so I can refresh my knowledge and skills. Professional and polished!
I recently attended a Motivational Interview training course with Roxy and I can say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I left with some great takeaways that have helped towards improving my practice with my own clients and added to my own toolkit. Roxy provides an engaging environment that encourages groups to learn, reflect and practice in a warm environment. I would recommend this training.
I've worked with Roxy delivering training together in the past and more recently I have sat in on her motivational interviewing sessions. I can genuinely recommend her to any organisation looking for additional training support at any level in their organisation. Roxy takes an intelligent and a considered approach to her training while making it fun and engaging for participants.
Roxy facilitated a DISC personality profiling virtual workshop as part of an Executive Leadership Programme for high potential senior women leaders. As a host she was engaging, knowledgeable and inspired some great conversations amongst the group. The session was a valuable addition to the programme and I would not hesitate to book another workshop with Roxy on future programmes, from an organisers perspective she was organised, efficient and a pleasure to communicate with.
I have recently completed a two day course on “Eliciting Change Through Motivational Interviewing” with Roxy. I have done a lot of MI courses in the past but have never quite grasped the concept of MI. And because of this, I never practiced and thus lost the ability to develop new skills. Roxy presented the course in a way that I get it now. I think the reason I was so successful with her course (and not the others) was due to her encouragement and simple approach to practicing it with my clients. I have already used some MI with clients and noticed a huge improvement with engaging with my clients. I highly recommend this course with Roxy as it is superb.
Roxy’s style is friendly and relaxed, she is very engaging but also speaks plainly and explains principles clearly. She also allows for expression of personal experience and lots of reflection. Roxy employs an inclusive and collaborative approach which was extremely clever and impressive combining virtual and physical trainees. I cannot recommend Roxy enough. The whole process of discussing team training requirements, adapting her delivery format for our specific needs, working with us on applying a Covid secure environment has been a very easy and pleasurable experience. I have recommended Roxy to the local Jobcentre for providing additional training support as my teams have found the sessions invaluable.Many thanks Roxy.
