Congratulations on an excellent presentation on Persuasion this morning. It was very insightful and by breaking it down into practical tips it makes it much easier to implement on a day to day basis, both in a personal and professional setting. I could have listened to you and your panel of experts all morning!
EQuita were fantastic. It was the best run course with the best content that I have been on in years. I would recommend it to anyone. Their knowledge was outstanding and they came across as highly credible and competent.
I have heard fantastic reports of your recent mediation in a situation where the odds seemed to be stacked against that approach! That scenario is a great ‘ambassador’ for the cause of mediation.
I’ve partnered with Margaret and the team at EQuita on designing a number of Leadership development programmes for Workday Ireland.
Margaret’s clarity of vision, thought leadership and practitioner experience made a huge difference to achieving programme outcomes.
In her delivery Margaret brings an enthusiasm, energy, and pragmatism like no other and sessions have proven to be thought provoking, engaging & fun.
I first encountered Margaret over a decade ago at the US/Ireland Legal Symposium in beautiful Westport. That initial meeting left a lasting impression.
In the decade we have known each other, I have had the opportunity of working with Margaret and engaged her services as a mentor and as a trainer in negotiation mastery.
As a lawyer, lecturer and consultant, I have developed and attended numerous training courses in a wide range of settings. Margaret’s course ranks as one of the best. Not only did Margaret skilfully shape my understanding of negotiation dynamics, she also taught me how to prepare for uncertainty. I now understand the analytical tools and interpersonal techniques for masterful negotiation, whatever the setting.
Margaret has provided mentoring services to me in the past year in support of my various independent NED roles, in Ireland and the UK. Drawing on her wealth of board room and leadership experience, Margaret’s observations have been invaluable in helping me to be the most effective director I can be.
Her extensive qualifications and outstanding professional experience aside, Margaret possesses unparalleled emotional intelligence. Margaret is an outstanding partner and one I look forward to working with in the future.
I undertook the mediation training course with EQuita in order to obtain the skills to be a mediator. My thinking at the time was to be able to use this skill when ever a situation arose that required mediation most likely a couple of times a year. To my surprise the mediation skillset is something I find myself using daily in a very positive way from enhancing understanding of members needs through to engaging with members on problem solving. Mediation skills as I have discovered whilst essential for mediation are also a set of skills that enhances many aspects of my work on a daily basis.
Choosing EQuita as our Strategic Partners has been the best business decision we have ever made.
Working with EQuita and Margaret Considine is a focussed partnership of results-based collaboration in people development. We have had exceptional feedback from every programme each year. This is due in no small way to the work EQuita put in to understand and customise their design and delivery to our needs. The quality of their trainer is second to none in Ireland.
EQuita are a preferred supplier of IDA and will continue to be due to their high standards and service excellence.
The Equita Group Programme on Mediation has impacted my professional and personal life. In addition to gaining the unique qualification of Accredited Certified Mediator, this highly interactive programme has equipped me with the necessary tools and skills to constructively resolve conflict, whatever the setting. The modules are well-conceived, with the right blend of theory and practical application. Margaret and Julie are exceptionaly skilled mediators and highly effective in cultivating the mediation mindset. They are truly committed to each student in the process and champion each individual in achieving their highest potential. I was particularly drawn to the small group numbers and benefitted enormously from consistent one-to one support and feedback throughout the programme. I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone open to positive change in their professional and personal thinking and behaviour.
Breakthrough Global has enabled our people to build a picture of themselves as leaders, better manage their teams and understand what is required of them to be ready for the future.
