Feedback and Testimonials

Parent Education

“The Too Much workshops have been so useful. With ease I was able to improve my own parenting with the new insight into nurturing and resilience. I have steadily made successful steps towards greater harmony in our house. I  shared this knowledge with work colleagues and friends.” 2017

“Madeleine's workshops are very interactive and informative. She is very collaborative and flexible by allowing "real life" examples to play out which meant you could easily apply the information to your own context.  I really enjoyed learning about how the "parenting highway" plays out in my own family and how I can easily adjust my parenting by being more self aware.  I enjoyed learning some new language to help my children when they are dealing with their own anxiety. I feel I'm better equipped to help them thanks to Madeleine's workshop.” June 2018

"It works!!!  Sharing this text from my young adult son when his request for cash was declined - 'Okay thanks anyway dad I'm responsible for my achievements AND my mistakes thanks for not bailing me out I'll find a way through xx love ya' - proud dad moment, cheers."    Sept 2018 

Raising Resilient Children

Leadership Coaching

"I am very grateful for the guidance Madeleine has given me and the results which have been achieved within a very short period of time.  My self confidence and self worth had been gradually undermined and eroded while working long term in a difficult and disfunctional environment. Through a series of tasks, readings and scenarios, she was very quickly able to help me gain skills to achieve positive outcomes whilst being heard and acknowledged - communication! Madeleine has enabled me to come back into my own again and once more enjoy my career of choice. Thank you Madeleine".             From Robyn 2017

“Thank you for believing in me, and for getting me to believe in myself as well. I am very grateful for our encounter as it has been life changing in many ways. Yupiiii :)”        Dec 2017

"Since working with Madeleine, I have been able to deal with some challenging areas in my work, in particular conflict resolution. I liked working with Madeleine as she responds very swiftly to whatever you put on the table, and is able to focus you towards a meaningful outcome. Madeleine is an excellent negotiator and can move fluently through many different areas of being - she can meet you in whatever conversation you begin with. I would totally recommend Madeleine as a mentor, coach, facilitator and teacher of workshops. I hope to continue a relationship with Madeleine in the future leading skill development with artists - her dedicated, professional, intelligent, heartful responses are able to shift entrenched positions swiftly. You will not waste time with this woman".

Facilitation and Conflict Resolution

"Madeleine has undertaken a variety of work for Stratos including supporting people after a critical incident, conflict resolution, and designing and conducting workshops to help participants cope with stress and build their resilience. She is very skilled at meeting the the needs of both individuals and groups, while at the same time helping them to adapt to change."

Professional Supervision

“I would like to thank you for opening my eyes to new stages of opportunity and strength. I will forever be grateful for your guidance and kindness. You have been an exemplary and visionary external supervisor. You are truly a great inspiration for me.” 
Feedback from a supervisee who has moved cities,  October 2018

"I have worked with Madeleine for nearly a year now and she continues to provide me with an outside perspective enabling me to be considerably more effective in my role as Chief Executive. In particular her honest and constructive feedback with respect to how I deliver messages to staff and external stakeholders helps me to communicate in a way that respects others points of view, while at the same time not compromising my own messages. Also particularly helpful is the assistance Madeleine gives with respect to making decisions. Her supervision has enabled me to understand the complexity of decision making in the context of my own organisation and to clarify the process. The outcome for me has been a better understanding of the reasons for particular decisions and therefore greater confidence in my decision making. I have also benefited greatly from recommended resources and suggested contacts provided by Madeleine".          Sept 2013

Training

"We have contracted Madeleine Taylor to facilitate workshops for our member organisations and staff for over 8 years now. Madeleine has always been very professional to work with and accommodating in tailoring the training to meet our requirements. Madeleine has excellent communication skills and understanding of how people learn. She works collaboratively with the training participants in devising the learning process and negotiating the outcomes. She has the ability to adapt her facilitation style on the spot to meet the needs of the workshop participants. Madeleine is very effective at managing training participants behaviour that could potentially have a negative impact on others learning.

The majority of feedback of the training that Madeleine has delivered to our members has been excellent. They are particularly grateful for the practical tools they can take away and use immediately in their work place.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Madeleine as a trainer/facilitator."
