It blows my mind

Kirsty Milligan Stylist - Profile Picture

 

It blows my mind that Martin Probst can deliver that kind of mindset change in such a short period of time.

In just one short session I was able to reset my thinking around conflict participation and resolution. From a management perspective his logic is easy to understand and relatable to teams. I highly recommend working with Martin.

Kirsty Milligan
Managing Director

I’m feeling an unprecedented overwhelming calmness

 

Thank you for helping me to understand my purpose in life. For the first time in my life I’m feeling an unprecedented overwhelming calmness and inner peace throughout my whole being. All life’s worries and stresses have disappeared and I’m now beginning to truly understand what you have been teaching me.

With daily realisations and clarity of what I need and want from my life and the profound strategies I’m learning throughout our sessions, I can now begin to set my goals and work with conviction to live my life with authenticity, confidence and fulfilment.

Martin brought sincerity, compassion and a wealth of knowledge

 

I turned to Martin at my time in need and he was amazing. Martin brought sincerity, compassion and a wealth of knowledge that helped me enormously in dealing with my situation.

Martin has taught me the tools I require to maintain and develop myself and all the values important to me. We worked on every aspect of my life, including dealing with my past – which was a huge success in my growth. Martin has helped me enormously and I  recommend him highly.

I’ve gained confidence through making value-based decisions

Suzanne_Moss_Testimonial - Workshop Influencing Positive Behaviours

 

Before working with PROfound Leadership, I felt like I was treading water. I was not discerning about where I was directing my attention and energy, and harshly judged myself. Stress was affecting my health.

While learning and applying the different strategies, I was surprised at how easy it was to apply principles to completely change my perspective to one of positivity and understanding of both myself, and others. I discovered how my thoughts affected my state of mind and mood, and the sense of struggle has gone. Without trying, my interactions at all levels have become easier. I wish everyone could do this kind of work so we could get along much more harmoniously!

As a result of completing the Leadership Program and Coaching sessions, I have been able to dismantle limiting ways of thinking and know myself better; to understand how I created stress in the past and now remember my values instead. I’ve gained confidence through making value-based decisions.

I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to take a leap forward in their business and/or personal life through gaining leading-edge strategies and life-changing understanding in a friendly and easy-going way. If you want a coach who is responsive to your pace and ways of learning, and who really cares about your challenges and progress in between sessions, then Martin is your man.

I enjoyed and looked forward to every session

Camilla Novotna - Profile Picture - Testimonials - Reviews

 

Before working with PROfound Leadership, I was unsure about my communication style – I often found myself in a situation caused by miscommunication. Generally, always considering myself not being a team player, I wanted to learn how to work with my growing team of employees and my work colleagues. Also my self confidence was quite low, impacting my relationships with our prospects / customers.

While learning and applying the different strategies, I have learned to listen first. The engagement and communication with my new team is improving. Mainly, I have really enjoyed learning more about myself, how past experiences have affected me and what beliefs I have formed from those experiences. This gave me such insight into my own strengths and weaknesses and what I want to improve and act on.

As a result of completing the Leadership Program and Coaching sessions, I have been able to get better organized, identify and verbalize better our company’s values, mission and vision that guides now the team and improved the communication with our clients and suppliers.

I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to grow. I feel like I have grown as a person and as an entrepreneur. Working with Martin has improved all my relationships, with myself, my partner and within my business. I also enjoyed and looked forward to every session.

My salary increased by 30%

Maike Schroeder Profile Picture

 

I engaged Martin after my position was made redundant twice in 3 years due to restructures. It was a challenging time and I felt that I needed to get structure into my life again.

Martin not only worked with me on my outlook on life, but also my motivators and drivers. After only 3 sessions, I was much more clear on my goals and within 6 weeks, I got a new job – in fact the job I really wanted. In addition, my salary increased by 30% only because I clearly communicated what I was worth.

Martin is a very professional coach and I highly recommend him! He changed my life!

Completely changed my life

Kleo Merrick - Profile Picture

 

It has been a truly amazing experience to have Martin as my coach, not only have I quite smoking (after 17 years), I have also massively reduced my drinking, and completely changed my life. My attitude towards my husband, stepkids, mother and all my family has improved by 100%. I now take responsibility for my actions instead of expecting everyone else to. Thank you, martin, you’ve helped me to become the woman I always wanted to be, and knew I could be!
