I work in a large corporate organisation which has all the usual issues; big directorates operating in silos; an ‘us and them’ mentality between managers and the frontline; a need to do more with less in order to keep up with our competitors; and a desire to build a high performance culture.
Over the past seven years, wm consulting have worked with us extensively to build that high performance culture. They have facilitated executive business planning repeatedly, helping to shape the future strategy of the organisation. They have then brought that strategy to life through our people by developing and implementing innovative leadership and coaching programs for our senior leaders right through to our frontline managers.
wm consulting are a pleasure to work with, ultra professional, solutions focussed and results driven. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to really change the future of their organisation. wm consulting can be relied upon to capture “hearts and minds” and focus an organisation’s people on what really matters: working together constructively to achieve common goals – a rare talent in today’s business environment.- Transition Lead Manager
Partnering with Ban Weston for our leadership team has delivered remarkable results in both skill development and behavioral shifts. Her interventions were innovative and tailored to meet the specific needs of each group. Our measurements have continued to represent substantial positive return on our investment. Ban is the ultimate professional and I am very confident she can add significant value to any organization.- Senior Change Management Manager
Ban Weston was engaged by our organisation to recover and re-establish the HR function following a series of incidents involving strong internal tensions at junior and senior levels. Her combination of high conceptual intelligence, strong inter-personal skills and consistent professionalism enabled her to deal with the key issues quickly, restore order and establish a new framework for ongoing organisation development.- CEO
Ban Weston’s involvement in the development and implementation phase was a critical factor in the successful launch of a transformational performance management system for our organisation. Her talents as a facilitator and thought leader were key to the successful delivery of this complicated project.- Senior HR Manager
The leadership Program delivered by wm consulting was the first of its kind for our organisation. I believe that the Program had real benefits for me personally and my direct reports. The Program provided us all with leadership style techniques we could apply when managing upwards, sidewards and downwards. I can see real changes in the management team and have received positive feedback from our stakeholders in our management approach. Overall the leadership Program was excellent.- Group General Manager
We engaged Ban Weston (wm consulting) as a strategic HR Consultant to assist with implementing a new performance and development system at The University of Sydney whilst I was the HR Director there. She quickly grasped the concepts and aims of the project and had excellent interpersonal, client engagement and Project Management skills. Her extensive background experience in the OD and HR Consulting fields assisted her to fully meet and exceed our demanding and differing internal client expectations in this large and complex institution. I recommend Ban highly.- HR Director
The coaching I received by wm consulting was invaluable. It was a real opportunity to reflect and understand the way that I have been operating. I learnt so much about myself, recognising and capitalising on my strengths was just as useful as reflecting on how I can be more effective as a leader.. Ban Weston was great at steering me in the right direction in a very skillful way. She is confident and an inspiration. The coaching was a life changing experience for me at a professional and personal level.- Manager
I worked with Ban over a period of 14 months with a group of Senior and General Managers mostly engineers. Ban facilitated a leadership programme with 12 modules with this group on a variety of leadership topics ranging from Coaching to DISC. She also conducted one-on-one coaching sessions and debriefed 360s with them. When we started the sessions they were very antagonistic following some very negative feedback they had received on their internal customer service.
They also were adamant that they were not a team and did not need to be one as they believed they needed to work in silos and then pass on any information to team members who were impacted by their decisions and actions. The mood in the initial workshop was aggressive and the body language was daunting. However Ban managed to turn that group around over the following months.
The team became a much closer group , understood the need to work as a team and even held a celebration for their “graduation”.
Ban is a warm, confident and skillful facilitator and she brings a breadth of experience and her psychological background to her coaching.- Head of OD
