Testimonials

My business took a turn when I met Jo Hale. What an inspiration Jo has become to myself and the growth of my business. I have achieved so much in a short space-time since I met her. I have already introduced 4 new services into my business, which I was a little apprehensive about but Jo gave me the tools and support to do this.

Jo made me realise my potential and also presented questions that hadn’t occurred to me. Jo made it easy for me to push myself into taking on challenges and achieving them, instead of thinking about them and not taking action. I feel I have moved faster thanks to Jo, the guilt has gone, as I know I am trying my best to grow and achieve my goals thanks to our regular meetings and set agendas.

If you want to grow with your business then Jo Hale is the person who can help you achieve this.

We have focused on introducing frameworks to enable ISL Recruitment to attract, recruit and retain high calibre candidates who will be critical in delivering ISL’s growth ambitions. The coaching has focused on creating clear roles, and a structure for the business to crystallise recruitment, development and career development routes to grow talent from within the business. Sara and Jo have supported the development of performance management mechanisms and competencies for measuring and supporting high performance to reinforce the strong company values, that underpin the ISL customer proposition.

Jo helped me to think about my next career steps and also with planning how to do a great interview. I have now got my new job and am enjoying my career change; have been trying for ages to make this step. Jo helped me see that the step wasn’t that big.

Jo is a highly regarded and truly inspirational leader and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly driven to achieve, Jo is a focused leader who gets the best out of her people, injecting a genuine sense of fun at the same time as achieving her targets.

Matt TippingManaging DirectorDouble Retail

I have been in my job for ages and wanted a new challenge, I wasn’t sure what that was, being a senior manager it can sometimes be a bit lonely. After a few sessions with Jo I realised that I just needed to refocus my efforts and we built a plan for the rest of the year that I feel really excited about achieving.

JaneOperations Director

Jo has been instrumental in our ‘growing up’ as a company – as part of the Growth Accelerator-funded programme, we’ve been guided by her through a strategy process, put in place project management systems and are now setting up a proper – and long overdue – process for managing, developing and giving clarity to people in the business about their roles and objectives.

Jo has a real gift, of being firm but human, challenging yet empathetic. She’s hugely experienced, good fun and deeply professional. We’ve come a long way in the last year, and we have a lot to thank her for.

Toby SawdayManaging DirectorSawdays Publishing

SDI is  fascinating, having a report about me. Everything was useful but most useful was understanding the team. I really enjoyed it, it was incredibly eye opening.

Sidonie WarrenManaging DirectorStudio B

Sara and Jo’s work with us was built around an understanding as to how each team member operates and thinks, from planning the business plan, challenging us on our thinking, 1 to 1 support and general advice.

Emma CarterHead of SalesExcalibur Communications

Sara is a strategic thinker and offers smart, creative solutions for growing businesses. Sara provided a clear and systematic approach to reviewing and developing our CPD needs. Her approach was structured and sensible and allowed us to create a clear vision for the people in our business now and in the future.

Nicola RayManaging DirectorModern

Jo has an amazing skill that she is able to unlock and ignite an individual’s passion and belief to achieve their goals or develop their skills. An inspiration to others, she is authentic, fun, engaging and passionate and has helped my team and myself – she ignited our belief that we could succeed. I would highly recommend Jo as she can make a real difference to any organisation or an individual.

Armadillo have been working with Sara and Jo for the last 18 months and during this time they’ve provided support and training to a number of teams within our company. Their SDI training has been invaluable and every team member who has taken part has been inspired to develop themselves and others further.

The tools they share with each person are practical and easy to implement after training, something that isn’t the case with other training courses. They clearly tailor their courses to suit your needs and will spend time to fully understand your challenges. This make the training course 100% relatable, relevant and actionable. What is an added bonus is that Sara and Jo are always available for advice and provide ongoing support as and when needed.  Something that the team value, look forward to and respect.

Claire GiddyGroup Account DirectorArmadillo CRM

Sara has been instrumental in helping us build a highly motivated and effective team. She has helped us develop the right team structure for growth, develop our values and understand how to interview and select the best candidates.

Stuart RayNew Business DirectorModern

Frustrated with the dilemma of not knowing where to take my career; Head4Performance helped me establish what was important to me. I’m now pursuing my future with renewed vigour and clear direction.

MarkSales Director

The SDI process is fascinating – and spookily accurate in pinpointing the areas where you’re strongest and working in your comfort zone, and the situations that make you uncomfortable under pressure.

Really useful seeing the implications for us as a 2-woman business, and I can imagine it would be invaluable if you’re trying to get a bigger group of people working together.

It shows you where the strengths are in a team, and highlights where the gaps are. SDI is a great business and relationships tool

Sharon TantonCreative DirectorValuable Content

I have worked with Sara and Jo for 5 years. What impressed me most when first meeting with them was their approachability, professionalism and desire to do what was right for their clients. During this time I have consistently received excellent feedback regarding their ability to identify development solutions and the quality and impact of their delivery. I have great trust in their abilities and if I was running my own business, and looking for the types of service that Sara and Jo provide, they would be top on the list of people I would call.

DanielleBusiness Owner

Sara , as part of the Growth Accelerator-funded team that’s worked with us for the last year, has brought creativity and a very visual approach to tackling their projects with us. Nifty with a coloured pen, imaginative in how to work with more creatively-minded people, she’s been an important part of driving an important growing-up process for us as a business: from putting in place a strategy framework to crafting people processes to making something as dry as a ‘project process’ come alive. No mean feat.

Personally, since working with Jo at Head4Performance, I am working harder and am more focused than I have ever been.

Jo and Sara were  key to the Senior Management Team at Excalibur pulling together and formulating its business plans. They used many skills and aids to assist the team including SDI. Before H4P was involved we were a group of talented individuals, we were able to move on working as a close team, once their work with us was completed.
