Thank you very much, awesome!"
Dave Gray – Senior Mechanic – Frontline Leadership
"This was the most challenging and fulfilling course I have ever been on. There was never a boring moment. It was great to be challenged and pushed outside of my comfort zone. The best course I have ever done and well delivered by awesome trainers. Would recommend this to all. I have done a few other leadership courses but nothing even comes close to this. Thanks a lot guys!"
Harry Offen – Senior Mechanic – Frontline Leadership
“I liked the different background and how it is relevant to our industry. I came out with how I can always up my own skills and to always try to do better than my best".
Performance Workshop Participant – Christchurch
"After completing this course, I don't think that I could attend another where I would learn more. I learnt a lot of personal skills and developed so much. Highly recommended to anyone in a leadership role."
Rodney Barron – Engineer – Frontline Leadership
"I discovered more about myself in one day, than I have on year long programs. Very Impressive, massive personal and professional experience."
Paul Sinnott – Teacher/Counsellor – The G2
"This course was overall by far the best one I have attended regarding leadership training. It made me look deep at myself and how I have and currently perform, and it identified the areas that I need to improve and focus on, asap. The feedback during the course from the instructors was motivating and gave me the tools to step up and push on. I recommend this course to anyone that wants to take themselves extremely out of their comfort zone and identify strengths and improvements in themselves. Thank you for the opportunity to attend".
Daniel Meason – Training Adviser – Frontline Leadership
"Hi my name is David Johansen and I am the Grey Valley and West Coast Scout Leader. Tony came and did some basic navigation and leadership with a combined group of scouts we were taking and wow, with his knowledge and ability to communicate and interact with the scouts and parents alike, he had them all wanting to learn more making it a pleasant and exciting learning event. Everyone is so looking forward to him coming again to increase their navigational skills further. Highly recommended to anyone".
David Johansen – Grey Valley Scouts – Map Reading
"I have attended several leadership programs over the years and while I have gained various skills throughout this time the difference I found with the Halo training is that it has a more profound effect once the training concluded. I continue to reflect on the challenging scenarios and the lessons I learned about myself. My team has a much better understanding of why our company values and behaviours are so important and how these directly align with the companies and, our own success. The training is challenging, thought provoking, good fun and most importantly – the lessons have stuck".
Adrian Boon – Mine Maintenance Superintendent – Frontline Leadership
"A Leadership Program that will positively push most peoples thought processes and way of thinking far beyond the average course. The trainers are experts in their field, highly engaging, professional and innovative. This program is ideal for teams, c-suite, senior managers and teams of people that need to hone their communication skills".
Tracy Keith – TMK Consulting – The G2
"Tony really made us aware of different scenarios and different ways of looking at situations. My team really enjoyed hearing his feedback about our salon. Tony's life experiences really connected with us and our industry. I was really impressed with his preparedness and the fact that he had researched our brand and catered to us. I look forward to working with HALO into the future"
Casey – Owner of Rodney Wayne The Palms – Performance workshop
"In the 3 days I learnt a lot from the HALO team in their military experiences and how leadership between industries is very relatable. The situations we were put in were a fair bit out of my usual work comfort zone, but looking back a lot of fun and plenty to take away. I enjoyed talking to the HALO team and hearing their experiences which prove the importance of high performing teams. Great location, especially to have a chance for our maintenance team there together".
Kieran Stevens – Fleet Maintainance Supervisor – Frontline Leadership
"Just had a weekend with Tony on the adventure nav course and could not recommend him enough ! So much learned from such an experienced guy . Thanks HALO you guys rock !"
Chris Brand – Invercargill – The Navigator
The things I learnt personally were our company values and behaviours and where they fit in, communication and team work and how things can go horribly wrong if the procedures were not followed. I found that working together as a group made making decisions easier. I have been on quite a few leadership courses over my career and this course is by far the best for what I got out of it.
Tony Barrett – Reliability Engineer – Frontline Leadership Course
"It was fun to have someone different from outside of the industry. His stories had me engaged, I really enjoyed it, and would love for him to come back! I learnt to not take complaining clients as confrontational but to listen and think before I say anything".
Performance Workshop Participant – Christchurch
"A great course that pushed us outside our comfort zone."
Chris O’Reilly – Production Supervisor – Frontline Leadership
"I really enjoyed it. It was interesting learning about the similarities with what he did to our industry. I learnt that if you have a difficult client, just take 10 seconds to think before you say anything".
Performance Workshop Participant – Christchurch
"Frontline Leadership makes you put into action the lessons delivered during the course. The delivery keeps you thinking over and practicing the skills throughout the entire course. This HALO course is exciting, tiring, fun and informative. Looking forward to coming back for a refresher next year!"
Alistair Smeaton – Purchasing Officer – Frontline Leadership
"I thought Tony was confident, calm and really well prepared. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It would be great to learn more, it was so relevant to what we do in the salon. I'm going to try using OODALOOP when it's needed and always make sure that there's a welcoming smile on my face!"
Hairdresser – Christchurch – Performance Workshop
"The team at HALO Training did a fantastic job of taking a mixed group of leaders and developing them into cohesive teams, giving us useful tools to enable us to better communicate and lead our teams on our work site. The training enforced the key values of our company and showed us why they play a vital part in our industry. Cannot thank you enough.”
Aaron Packer – Senior Mechanic – Frontline Leadership
"Tony managed to keep us all engaged in what he was talking about and we could relate it to every day in the salon. I took from it how much a client sees in just a short visit. Imagine how much a client who's in the salon for a colour service sees and observes!”
Human Skills Workshop Participant – Christchurch
"I attended this course with no info given as to what was involved. I was reserved at the start, but opened up quickly. I really enjoyed all aspects, both theory and practical. I have learnt a lot and also reflected on myself. This course will cater to all types of people as long as they are open to learning.”
Craig Bennett – Senior Mechanic – Frontline Leadership
"What I really appreciated was that Tony didn't rush the training, he made sure that I understood each topic before we moved on to the next. The course was everything that I expected and more."
