"Not only did HALO help us build confidence in ourselves, but they also gave us tools to implement in our workplace and everyday lives that help us through making decisions during high pressure situations. We were pushed very far outside of our comfort zones constantly! Over the years I have been apart of similar team building exercises however this one stood out above them all by a large margin, and not just because of the big lunch! It was 100% engaging throughout the entire workshop and we weren’t overloaded with too much information. Although it was uncomfortable at times, the general environment they created was extremely encouraging and forced us to grow in a controlled manner. I couldn’t speak more highly of the HALO team and the experience they gave to each of us. If you are ever presented with the opportunity to attend a HALO event, grab it, and run with it. You won’t regret it!"

"I have done leadership courses, read books and listened to many podcasts, yet working with Tony has been by far the best leadership coaching I have done. Leading through adversity defines you not only as a leader but as a person. Tony helped me focus on my values and what it takes to be the leader I knew I could be. I was held accountable and was challenged yet this coaching has enabled me to get through what has been the hardest and grueling of times. Thank you so much and remember - every day is a school day!"

"Wow, what an experience! What a complete new way of showing leadership and training. I would recommend this to others that are in leadership positions. HALO's training style is something that you have to come and experience. The lessons that I have learned will help me in my role every day, especially in planning and communication. Thank you very much, awesome!"

"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!"

“From start to finish we were always in suspense, thinking what the hell are they going to get us to do next! We were always on alert! The way they run this course is exciting, challenging, fun and very rewarding. Throughout the course we heard some very interesting stories. For me the reality of the stories and then being put in similar situations was something that I will never forget".

Aaron  

“This HALO course was an excellent combination of theatrical and practical leadership challenges that pushed us all as individuals into situations that were outside of our comfort zone. This led to a lot of personal growth as a leader and as a team. The delivery was well constructed and carefully planned. I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to transition from a reactive management style to a proactive and well planned management style. Thoroughly beneficial for people in all management positions".

“I think you would find it pretty hard to find two other professional presenters that could put across these type of learnings that both Tony and Darren delivered. I was taught many years ago that anyone giving a presentation should not talk longer than 1 hour as they will lose the attention to those they are teaching, but somehow they keep you interested for the entire 4 hours. This in my opinion was money well spent. We as a team have already started to implement some of the learnings. Cheers and thank you once again".

“I would like to say that the Communication workshop was one of the best training courses I have been on. Darren and Tony as speakers are 100% the best I have seen in a while. Normally the attention span on a course is 30 to 45 minutes, but they kept us focused for the whole 4 hours. I have learnt (as all of us did) my weaknesses and strengths in one day, we are all learning every day, and it is good to have courses to improve our skills for ourselves and Ryman. I have already implemented the Purpose Method and End-state in todays tasks, and will continue to work on all I have learned going forward. Their summery at the end for each one of us on the course was 100% accurate. Attention to detail and honesty was superb. The whole team worked together and executed the mission that was planned for the day. The course hit the mark!!!".

"The concept of mental toughness was something that resonated with me personally. It is not what everyone thinks it is. It's not about not having those feelings, not crying or having a tough image. It is much much more then that."

Patricia – Civil Construction

“This course was a fantastic few days for our team. The theme used and the practical aspects meant the skills taught really got cemented and I will definately be putting them into action back at work. The HALO team were really engaging and kept us on our toes the whole time! "

Amy 

"HALO Training's unique delivery method combined with both active activities and classroom lessons ensured that we were always engaged. The lessons I learnt proved valuable in our line of work and I can't wait to use them."

Nick

"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 

"I discovered more about myself in one day, than I have on year long programs. Very Impressive, massive personal and professional experience."

Paul  Sinnott

"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 

"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  

"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 

"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.”

"I learnt to look inside myself and see my values. It increased my confidence and gave me the tools to continue to improve myself and the relationships with those around me."
