"I found the tools you showed me made so much sense that I was quite looking forward to going into the meeting - this had the great benefit of being able to see the bigger picture.  It worked extraordinarily well - he just needed to feel that he was being heard and had influence - the tools of reflecting back his behaviour and how it made me feel got us way past the usual barriers.  He went from a grizzly to a teddy bear in the space of the meeting - still got a long way to go - but it does now look very promising."
Innovation Manager, Orthopaedics Manufacturing Company
