Executive/Leadership Coaching Testimonials:

“I thoroughly enjoyed our coaching together. Your focus on neuroscience became very logical for me to understand and apply in my everyday life, including personal and professional. Without knowing the science behind any of it I always felt it was a bit like “shooting in the dark”  I especially liked the neuroscience behind goal setting and have implemented this throughout my organisation that everyone should pursue on their own, including the “where I am now” versus “Where I want to be in 3 months time out of 10”. Your coaching allowed me to coach others effectively, with the hope that they coached others also like a chain reaction. The books you recommended to read (David Rock’s books for example) were also excellent, I’ve told many others about these books and very glad to have known they existed thanks to you. Many thanks for your guidance and coaching.”

I was introduced to EnHansen Performance through a leadership course titled “NeuroLeadership TREAD: Neuroscience sheds light on how to lead more effectively”. As a senior manager, I was looking for a new way to engage with my staff, and through training & coaching I have been able to successfully adapt my style and move towards the use of ‘thinking questions’ to assist my staff arrive at solutions, rather than them being dependent on me to provide an the answer. Understanding the way in which others think, respond emotionally, or are motivated has enabled me to stay calm when confronted with staff conflict and has improved my ability to work with others and coach them to achieve. My leadership has significantly improved as a direct result of utilising these strategies and my peers have commented on my confidence and calmness under pressure and the impact that has had on those working with me.

“EnHansen Performance provided Cairns PDO Transport and Main Roads with over 30 PRISM Brain Mapping assessments during NeuroLeadership workshops for our managers and the Senior Regional Leadership team. She had come recommended after the work done with TMR in Townsville. The workshops provided insight to each of us about how our brains work and this was powerful in understanding ourselves and others. The PRISM reports became a useful development tool for our leaders to work with to create more cohesive and effective teams. They were packed full of useful information from career development to mental toughness, emotional intelligence to strengths and areas to develop. We found them surprisingly accurate and gave us all a universal language for understanding each other. As a management team of predominately engineers it gave some scientific basis to the art of leadership and promoted emotional intelligence in a structured and logical way – playing to the strengths of engineers, whilst still engaging with staff overall.

Kristen Hansen also provided Executive Coaching for the five of us in the Regional Leadership Team over 8 months. We benefited both personally and professionally and found the sessions both introspective for personal growth and cohesive in ensuring the team worked better together with shared goals. It worked so well we continued on for a second programme. We gained cohesion as a team and a common language to communicate better with one another and our teams. Kristen was a strong advocate of each leaders journey and the teams commitment to improving our region – she was engaging and a hard task master when required, but equally quick to support and mentor throughout the process. I would advocate and recommend for Kristen to be engaged in other departments as well as other branches etc of TMR – she understands the leadership challenges of Government and the struggle between technical excellence and strong leadership skills.

Sales Coaching Testimonials:

“I would highly recommend Kristen as a coach for anyone in a sales role no matter how experienced they are. She is very bubbly, attentive and adaptable to the needs of the individual and practices what she preaches. I personally have asked my Manager to set aside budget for me to work with Kristen again in the future.

I really enjoyed each session with Kristen and get a lot out of them. One of the mantras she uses with me is that “people buy from people they like”. I think in the past I thought that being the ideal rep was having all the knowledge and data to answer every question you were asked and worried that it would seem unprofessional to discuss anything outside of this.
She has given me a number of things to think about prior to, during and after each customer call. One example is to consciously ask about the customer (learn something about the family, weekend plans etc) and actually listen to the answer. This might sound silly but in the past I probably didn’t actually listen carefully because I asked the question already pre-empting the product discussion to start! Thinking about voice modulation has also been important recently given that there is a lot of information to convey about product x in some calls. Reading of emotions and acknowledging them is also something I am working on.”
