Featured Testimonial

I am the Managing Director of a private business in the UK which delivers outsourced government services for the UK government. The services are aimed at Young People who have somehow fallen through the net, adults seeking employment, young people and adults seeking training, upskilling and last: people looking to set up in business.

I have been involved in this type of work for almost 30 years and I found myself wondering why I was still doing it, what was it that kept me going amidst the government red tape, reduced funding, reduced margins, noise in the system and a lack of focus across government. I had, in a sense, become a victim and I was looking for some new energy.

I came across Mark and his team by chance through a UK contact. I took the first step and visited Mark in action in Belgium, then I took a few bolder steps: I closed the entire business for 3 days to take my whole staff through a 3 day transformational coaching session with Mark and his team. I was so overwhelmed by this, I decided to offer the same training to my entire supply chain of 35 organisations and furthermore I have created a companywide volunteering programme for my staff to attend Mark’s sessions in Europe over the next 3 years.

So, why did I do this, what was it that struck me:

Mark is no ordinary ‘trainer’: he can be challenging, confrontational but it always insightful and precise. He is quick to figure out the ‘’racket’’ at play and deal with it in a transformational way- rather than an incremental, apologetic way. I wasn’t interested in increments, change, better, more… I was hungry for transformation, a breakthrough.

Mark spent 3 days with my entire staff team and there is little doubt that there has been transformation across the business: I can sense this, feel it, but more important my staff are more productive, more efficient, more focussed on the task at hand. I was so taken by this, that I have created a champion network of 8 staff to embed the approach across the business.

Mark has also been able to embed this approach across my supply chain of partners across London, small, corporate and voluntary sector. A new sense of purpose, a sense that we are all in it together. The 3 days he spent with my supply chain was just so good, just so good for them, for my business and for the future relationships between us: more focused, clear, with purpose and clarity

So, what can I say:

  1. Mark and his team are no ordinary team- they will challenge the status quo
  2. Mark and his team can break down the victim culture, deal with it and get whole teams back on track and focussed on performance, including commercial performance
  3. Mark and his team can and do create a positive, sustained culture which can be measured, tracked and lead to success- the tricks and techniques he uses are powerful, personal and dynamic
  4. I am so pleased I came across him in a chance meeting, when I was questioning the ‘’why’’, created so many breakthrough and moved my business on in so many ways- whilst at the same time created so many personal development opportunities across the business- my staff, supply chain and wider networks

We have been exceptionally pleased with the work done by the team of Uncommon Results. They were completely professional and reliable, and they delivered amazing results both with the young people who participated in the programs and the adults who they trained to be volunteers.

I have been in the Prison Service for almost 25 years and I have never seen an intervention which has such a profound effect on so many people in such a short time. The people I refer to are not just the prisoner participants but also my staff.

Your style made it easy to tune into the sense of what you were saying and the exercises really reinforced the learning. We still make reference to effective listening and remind ourselves of the need to be aware when our attention wanders. The sales consultants have found that by being aware of how to listen more effectively to clients they are having a better understanding of what the clients need. They now seldom take notes at a meeting but find that because they have really listened during the meeting they are able to write up a note of the meeting afterwards and recall completely what was said.
