From New York to California
The cooperation we have with Encourage, is delivering a lot of value. On coaching, training or consulting they deliver inspiring valuable support to the Intrum group by combining great academic knowledge and operational advices with goodwill and a meaningful culture. High ethical standard and proactive advices has supported us in our Human Resources journey of development on many areas such as performance management, training developments or leadership principles.
Jag har varit VD i IT branschen i mer än 25 år och har en djup insikt inom det mesta som har med IT att göra. Men det är ledarskap som är min passion. Därför är jag så genuint tacksam för att i många år ha haft Mats Eklund på Encourage som kvalificerad samtalspartner och även moderator när jag velat ta mig och mitt ledningsteam till nya nivåer
Having found Encourage has been a blessing for both me and our company. There cannot be more than a handful of people who understand business, consulting and human behaviours, interactions and drivers to the level their CEO Mats Eklund does. His unique background & training combined with excellent coaching, and interpersonal skills has provided me with a sounding board and healthy reference points for business and life.
We cooperate with Encourage on a regular basis as our second opinion partner in our own recruitment of new consultants to Alumni. Mats’ assessments of candidates are always of the highest quality and he always challenge us in our view of the specific individual and how well he/she will match the position at hand. As an advisor, Mats is crisp in his recommendations, very thorough and a highly sympathetic individual to work with.
Our challenge was to further grow, while maintaining our effectiveness, hence the need for increased leadership capacity. To provide the necessary tools we introduced the program amongst all our leaders. It delivered above expectations, not only did we mange to enter the ”larger” organization successfully, we also kept vital processes intact and strengthened our corporate culture with increased job satisfaction for everybody as result
Encourage has been a good partner in developing our processes including recruitment and talent inventory. Mats has guided us and led us on track, he has also been involved with our customized leadership training, and made splendid efforts for that. Mats is great to work with, he has expertise and is very humble.
Thanks to Mats, I have now a job which I would never have thought I could get.
Encourage has been a very valuable resource for us in our work with both our recruitment process and in developing our management team with the help of Myers Briggs. Mats is a very good consultant, he quickly grasps the situation and makes a crystal-clear analysis. He has an unusual combination of a sharp brain and a humble kindness
I came in contact with Encourage when I was about to leave my job and was looking not only for a new one, but also, for a change in career path. Throughout a process which started with overall priority setting and ended with me deciding on a new job, my sponsor was an invaluable speaking partner, making sure that I considered all important issues and coaching me, in an honest but candid way, to find the answers.
Jag har under flera år regelbundet via EY träffat Encourage. Varje coachingsession har gett mig inspiration, varit utvecklande och stödjande i mitt förändringsarbete som ledare och människa. Möten har alltid varit professionellt förberedda och har också innehållit mycket värme och humor. Det som varit viktigt och inspirerande för mig, är att mötena varit stödjande men också utmanande och gett mig många insikter om mig själv. Jag har gått från varje session med en “feel-good” känsla med också med några nya viktiga frågor att fundera över.
With a highly diverse background and a true devotion to coaching, my sponsor had the ability to reach people in all strata of life. Working with him as a life coach is a truly challenging but rewarding experience. If you are ready for a change and have the guts to go after your dreams, he can help you find your own path to success. I remember every session with him made me laugh, think and understand more about myself and the world around me and had me walking back out with a smile on my face and a positive outlook on life.
