"Julia makes the ground fertile for teams to work more effectively together and breaks down barriers to really clear and honest communication that makes teams that much more dynamic: turbo-charges them in effect..."

Julia's coaching of my senior executives has been invaluable to them personally and a tremendous help in building the right attitudes and behaviours in the team. As a one-to-one coach for senior executives, I rate her as outstanding : she is insightful, experienced, as patient or as aggressive as the situation demands, and always leads to results.

Julia also builds high-performing teams by working on Change Agendas, as she is doing at present with Global Markets in India, where her ability to transcend national, cultural, and social barriers in pursuit of team cohesion and excellence is truly commendable.

The large-scale change work Julia does is highly relevant to and tailored for the identified needs of a team. Therefore it is lasting and valuable, and I am confident that it will result in better people working for a better tomorrow at Deutsche Bank.

Julia is unique. She wakes dead people up.

She does it with love, sincerity and intellectual discipline.

To make decisions from love, to learn how to be self aware, and to recognise that intimacy brings power...

All this and more simply changed my life forever and I am so much richer in every aspect of my life.

Thank you Julia

Julia has been my coach and a coach to our whole division. Personally I found both experiences transformational. The 1-on-1 coaching was very powerful, especially as it caught me when I was just taking on additional managerial responsibilities. I believe that Julia tailors her approach in these sessions to the individual. The organizational coaching was perhaps more radical. The aim was to be very inclusive of the entire division, and to re-energise individuals within the bank who were losing their drive. The offsites were always quite high energy, with lots of fairly short presentations or activities rotating. Julia was never a presenter at any event – always a facilitator. She is a big fan of visual media so all teams were encouraged to present through films or plays. It was remarkably successful – with the most unexpected people emerging as dramatic talents. Julia also believes that hierarchies can be paralyzing if they create an atmosphere where juniors are fearful of speaking out, so the events always tried to be very democratic, with juniors presenting to seniors or working in mixed teams. At the time, we had established a complete dominance in our business and many people in the division were obviously becoming bored, complacent or looking for the next challenge. The work that the division did with Julia was very effective at re-invigorating the group and getting some of the most effective individuals excited again about the opportunities for the future.
