Testimonials

“This is the best training I have ever done. The Centaur model proved to be very helpful to myself and other team members. We’ve achieved a deeper insight into our own and others’ personalities and I can now better grasp the human aspects of situations in discussion with colleagues and customers. I have also started managing myself and others in far more multi-layered way than before.”

MANAGING DIRECTOR, AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY (UK) MULTINATIONAL MANUFACTURER

“The Centaur Model is a far more practical approach than any other models I’ve seen. Sandy makes it very relevant to where you are in your development and although appropriately pushy she moves at a speed that helps you to embrace new ways of thinking. Centaur and Sandy have given me great insight into the behaviours, mindset, blocks and values of myself and other people.”

MANAGING DIRECTOR, INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT BANKING

“The way the Centaur Model raised the veil of corporate life for me was staggering. I can now understand why people act and react the way they do. Centaur seems to turn insight into learnable skills which helps me negotiate corporate life and they are just as useful now I am self-employed. I understand my clients better, I understand my suppliers better, I think I even understand my friends better!”

OWNER, BUSINESS SUPPORT AND CONCIERGE SERVICE

“I was sceptical about the suggestion that it is possible to gain insight into individuals’ attitudes life and work by studying their physical form. My scepticism was short lived. As the course unfolded and my knowledge of the Centaur model increased, I realised that it has much to offer. I see now what motivates me and and what hold me back. Equally important, my awareness of the model has allowed me to adopt strategies for dealing with difficult situations within the team and workplace leading to mutually beneficial outcomes, where this would previously have been unlikely.”

“Centaur has had a very positive impact on both my life and my management career. I would recommend Centaur and the team to anyone who wants to become a better persona and a better manager.”

GENERAL OPERATIONS MANAGER, NORFOLK LINE IRISH SEA FERRIES

“Knowing the Centaur model has been invaluable in understanding and building relationships with all people, in both work and non-work contexts.”

MANAGING DIRECTOR, INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT BANKING

“As a partner in a very large accountancy firm, I had the benefit of a number of interesting, varied and challenging roles during my career. Although I was very successful with clients and with my teams, I sometimes struggled with my bosses and the wider ‘political’ dimension of the firm. Centaur helped me quickly contextualise my relationship issues reminding me that the motivations of the individuals I was dealing with were different to my own, and helping me craft responses that led to hoped for outcomes.”

PARTNER, ACCOUNTANCY FIRM

“Working with Sandy for longer than a decade has fundamentally changed my life. The beauty of her techniques lie in their simplicity and ease of use in real life situations. Sandy’s open nature, deep respect and love of human life, coupled with her deep intellect, make her an absolute joy to work with.”

RETIRED PARTNER, BIG FOUR ACCOUNTANCY FIRM

“Sandy is a delight to learn form and members of my team who have since attended her courses have come back full of enthusiasm and praise!”

For Ethical Politics in Corporate Culture (EPPIC):

“My first encounter literally lifted the veil on behaviour and suddenly lots of things made sense. I am now able to approach the minefield of internal politics whilst staying true to my value set and maintaining my integrity which, in a high performance investment banking environment, can be challenging.”
