“Wentworth 1 was the best personal development course I’ve been on. It made me think in ways I wasn’t even aware of before the course – about myself and how other people react to the way I behave. It’s made me a better leader, a better team player and, I think (!), a better person.”
“Wentworth 1 gave me a real insight into some of my self-limiting behaviours. I feel much more courageous in tackling difficult people! A roller coaster of a week, with all the highs and lows you would expect, and hope for, when embarking on a journey of self-discovery! Seriously recommended. Glutton for punishment I went on and completed Wentworth 2 also!”
“For me the Wentworth 1 course has been a wonderful experience. I’ve learned that being a leader and creating an efficient team has to do with the person within me. It was a pleasure and a relief to find out that showing the real me isn’t scary but is inspiring. I’ve found that I can be the leader that I want to be and that my team can be much better. Last but not least, my wife and children experience a better husband and father.”
“The course is an amazing, enlightening experience. From the minute we started our introduction it was clear this was going to be like no other development course. It has helped me immensely with my confidence and my new behaviours have already been mentioned by some members of my team. I would thoroughly recommend Wentworth 1 – be fearless!”
“A highly challenging and rewarding course that will take you to places you would never imagine and make you a better person and a great leader to boot! The course helped me challenge my inhibitions and made me more confident and at ease to challenge upwards. A truly unique and rewarding life experience.”
“A great experience! Coupled with the feedback questionnaires and discussions from peers, direct reports and line manager, Wentworth 1 provides you with some great insights to make a real difference to those around you and to yourself – both as a person and leader of others.
“I found Wentworth 1 invaluable, it helped me to understand that the emotional struggles I was experiencing were holding me back from achieving my potential at work and in my personal life. It is full on for the week but the continued support after the course has helped to keep me focused on the commitments I made to myself. I met some fabulous people who shared something truly special and I won’t forget any of them. The trainers are funny, sharp and very astute when it comes to recognising what you need to be working on during the week-long course.”
“For me Wentworth is like a rollercoaster. I started slowly to understand myself up to a point where I started to really enjoy it. It was one turn after the other one, up and down, feelings, emotions, all round until the moment it finished. Then it was up to me to have another go, but then in the real world! And you know what ….. it’s amazing!!”
“Wentworth 1 is a very demanding and rewarding course. It enabled me to understand a lot more about myself and the way I interact with others, both in a work and social environment. Taking the principles of the course into the workplace has had great benefits, with more inclusive and productive meetings being only one of the many positive changes I have seen.”
“The Wentworth programme was unsettling, scary, exciting and inspiring all at the same time. It was the most unconventional exploration of my feelings, reactions and self that I have ever experienced. Further to that our facilitators, Andy and Mark, were incredible companions in our journey. They prodded, probed and supported each of us both as individuals and a team. It was a completely unexpected journey that continues day by day in the real world. I will never forget my experience and it will continue to influence all that lies ahead.”
“Wentworth 1 was like no training course I had ever been on before. The days were long and intense, and personal feedback from the participants and trainers was honest and heartfelt. The journey we went on was quite emotional and my team are seeing the benefits of my time invested in the course.
“Wentworth 1 literally changed my life. I am now working in a new country in a new role. The experience was one I will remember for the rest of my life. It’s very rare to have the opportunity to explore your own make up in such depth. If you have the opportunity to attend – take it !”
