Empowerment' "After accepting my position as director, I had many questions. Which tasks have a higher priority and which do not? What strategies are best in certain situations? In the end, in my position, you constantly make choices and take decisions. Likewise, regarding communication with my staff, stakeholders and the governing board. Floyd provided me as an executive coach and consultant with outstanding support. In our meetings we discussed my pain points and operational constraints among others. Now, I can put it all into perspective because he placed my dilemmas and pain points in a broader context. In addition, he was extremely respectful by questioning me with critical remarks, so that my problems and leadership 'blind spots' became more apparent. The effectiveness and power of Floyd’s executive coaching and consulting lies in enabling and empowering yourself and your team. In effect, come face-to-face with your strengths and weaknesses. As a result, Floyd helped me gain insight into myself which allowed me to enjoy carrying out my role and responsibilities as a director.
'Four in a row' '"Four in a row" is a popular game in the Netherlands. Essentially, it is a strategy game that requires forward thinking, critical thinking, critical reflections, as well as attack and defense. In my career as a director I have been coached four times by Floyd Mac Donald. Floyd's coaching is authentic. A powerful and authentic leadership approach that matches your skills and competencies is the only goal. In these sessions, you question your own choices and decisions, and get additional insights and practical solutions. In the end, you analyze and discover other paths, perspectives and innovative ways of thinking. The meetings were always pleasant conversations. The sessions provided me with insights and confidence to improve myself. The simplicity and efficiency of our meetings gave me a sense of joy while performing my job. Floyd's sound bite is “have fun and enjoy your job”. Partially, because of his contribution I accepted a beautiful job position as a director."
'Force field' "In the past, I used Mac Donald Consultancy's executive coaching and consulting expertise. After accepting my position as director of a large organization I arranged multiple sessions with Floyd. In these extensive sessions, Floyd demonstrated how to cope and apply a multi-perspective approach in a complex force field, coping with conflicting viewpoints and interests of stakeholders at different levels. Using a lot of patience and perseverance Floyd was able to break through certain entranced patterns, behaviours and attitudes. Our sessions and conversations were intense but he always presented them in a respectful and humorous manner. Likewise, I am very grateful for Floyd's insights and experience while completing my master's. He provided me with additional insights, concepts, leadership & management styles. Floyd helped me develop my own leadership characteristics and management style".
