"Our organisation is going through major rapid change and in this environment managers need to manage well, but also become leaders who are able to share a vision and then lead with clarity and courage. Sam Sellwood has been training our leadership team over the last 12 months on resilience, caring for yourself, and is now facilitating the 'Mind Leaders' program over the next six months. Sam is a great communicator, connects quickly and easily with individuals as well as the team. Her presenting style is professional and is laced with humour and managers leave each session with great practical tips to take back to their workplace.
