  • As a Director of CVCRS I have I have noted a positive change in how those members of the team, who have accessed the coaching sessions provided by Arpinder, deal with certain situations. I have particularly noted:

    • How a coachee has gained more confidence in wider team settings and is able to contribute more to discussions and feels a lot more comfortable in doing so;

  • Arpinder was a trainer / workshop facilitator on a team building programme following the signing of a partnership agreement between Birmingham City Council and Atkins. The challenge for Arpinder was to bring together staff from both organisations, at different levels in a workshop environment. Arpinder achieved this in a fun, enthusiastic and informative way. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

  • Through my coaching sessions with Arpinder, I have developed self-belief, a greater sense of confidence, and the ability to see a variety of options which I have not considered before.  Having Arpinder as my coach helped me to feel supported, challenged and inspired to take actions. I looked forward to every session and to be on a journey of self-discovery. In the frame of the sessions, Arpinder asked me a set of some very powerful and effective questions, encouraged me greatly, celebrated my successes and happy times, and helped me to keep on track. Arpinder is such an inspirational professional; she gives her full commitment to her clients’ success, listens to them carefully, encourages them along the journey.

  • I am delighted to offer my recommendation for Arpinder and her work with me over 2011 and 2012. At the time I was working as Assistant Regional Director of the HE STEM Programme in the Midlands and East Anglia. I was responsible for organising and delivering an extra-curricular course where groups of science and engineering undergraduates and recent graduands worked together to identify possible solutions to a challenge affecting the city of Birmingham. For this, the groups needed to understand teamworking, how they fit into a team and how to make the team an effective one before they could possibly work together within the constraints of the challenge.

    In 2011, for our pilot course, Arpinder offered advice and support to the programme, invaluable mentoring and suggested activities that we could include, helping out wherever possible. She then worked with me to make the necessary improvements for the second course, in 2012.

    In 2012 I was able to use Arpinder’s services more effectively: she provided the first day’s teambuilding, understanding team roles and team activities, which enabled the 6 teams of 8 to gel immediately and start to work together. There was a lot of fun had that day, as well as a lot of learning, and students talked regularly about the different characteristics they displayed. Having delivered her activity she went over and above my expectations by remaining in touch with me throughout the students’ course and even came back to help with the final day where the teams present their idea in a competition. Information on Arpinder’s contribution can be found on the legacy website, at http://hestem-mea.org.uk/projects/grand-challenge/grand-challenge-2012-participant where the team skills materials which she provided can also be viewed.

    Arpinder works in an immensely personable manner, teasing out the best of her clients: I felt more of a friend than a client and her collaborative style helped us to create an excellent experience for the groups who took part in the course. She went on to support another university’s equivalent course, again bringing extra value to the experience.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Arpinder and Kaur Values for all activities relating to personal and business development.
