The [TPFL] course has given me invaluable insights into being an effective leader in public service.
The career development workshop that Thresholds ran for our staff received the most positive feedback that we have ever had for a development course.
It was really helpful to have one on one time to flesh out what I wanted. It's the first time I've ever had any guidance from someone who has no vested interest in my decision and the probing and questioning was essential to help me remember and refresh what it is I actually want in my career.
Crossing Thresholds has been very successful in achieving significant increases in the number of women advancing their careers at DFID.
Thresholds has been great, absolutely invaluable. I am feeling much more empowered about my future plans. And I have also really valued the fellowship and friendship with the other group members along the way, as well as the literature and handouts.
I just wanted to thank Fiona and Lindsay for an amazing Crossing Thresholds session yesterday. It was brilliant and certainly has made me hold a mirror to myself and become more self aware, as well as providing me with techniques. What I think was also so impressive was the way such a positive environment was nurtured for all participants. I personally felt that this has allowed me to focus on the way and potential I have to improve rather than on the negatives!
Being part of the TPFL programme has been a fantastic experience. I developed a much better understanding of what is important to me in my working life, what I want to achieve and how best I might do that.
An excellent programme [Crossing Thresholds] which provided really good opportunities to see myself differently and to think more broadly about my future. Fantastic input from a wide range of senior civil servants. Great peer group support across government departments.
The best thing about Crossing Thresholds was meeting all of these intelligent, honest, fun, genuine, hard working and giving women across the civil service - it was so uplifting to know and learn from this amazing group of women.
I have immensely enjoyed the Crossing Thresholds course. The design of the course was very well thought out with excellent opportunities to work with our peer groups. I found this as useful as the input days.
Thank you so much for your support over the last year. Crossing Thresholds has truly been an amazing experience. It has provided me with a strong network, which has proven very knowledgeable and supportive. I am extremely grateful to the programme and would highly recommend it to others!
[Threshold Programme for Leaders] makes a real connection with what our jobs are about. It’s not about gloss or theory, but what I’m trying to achieve and ways to be more effective in doing that.
Thank you for your support and the way you have responded to feedback and tailored/structured the course – it has been one of the most rewarding experiences and far exceeded my expectation. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this programme to anyone else.
I can't recommend Crossing Thresholds enough! I found it really useful for my career development and actually thinking about where I want to be in 3 or 5 years time. It's the best course I have ever been on.
The whole [Communicate With Impact] course was jam-packed with useful activities and information. Not a moment was wasted or an activity not useful. Best training I have ever been on (and I've done a few!).
