Sycol is an excellent example of a cutting edge application of innovative ideas, with a real passion for developing culturally attuned organisations and the integrity that comes with thoroughly living the principles behind the practices. This is organisational development work of the highest calibre – what we could properly call generative change in action.
The Sycol team provided an excellent keynote speaker at our National CPD annual event for Leaders in educational psychology. He engaged the audience well and provided some excellent models and frameworks to enable service redesign as learning organisations. On behalf of NAPEP Executive committee, UK. Mohammed (Mo) Bham
Sycol work in the area of systems improvement is based on sound psychological and organisational theory, research and a proven track record for improved outcomes. For example in the area of school improvement. The Sycol team are able to connect with and engage a large range of different professionals and have a wealth of experience which they draw on to provide real life examples and evidence based practice.
I found that Ioan was highly organised and professional, Ioan is a very entertaining and charismatic presenter, I have been impressed with his attention to detail and he has helped many of our school settings reconsider their professional purpose and principles. As manager of our EPSI would have no hesitation in recommending his work.
Just wanted to let you know we are using your structures and very helpful guidance. We all valued the day and enjoyed the protected time to innovate and move the Service forward.
Thank you for 2 wonderful days of Solution Oriented CBS training. There is so much that I appreciated about the training – your relaxed, friendly style, unhurried pace and your generous sharing of situations in the past where things had not gone well for you all helped to create a learning environment that felt pressure-free and safe. Your periodic recapping and the frequent opportunities that you gave us to pause, reflect on and discuss what had just been delivered and ask any questions, as well as to practise in small groups, meant that at the end of the 2 days I feel ready to start using the 3-Session Programme straight away.
Thank you for the work you have done with the Essex Statutory Assessment Service, it has given them the tools to drive service improvements themselves rather than feeling they we impose service development on them. Presentation after presentation throughout the whole day showed how engaged they are in what they do and why and how they do it.
