Pauline "Most valuable time spent in my life"

Rangeland Foods

"The program has helped me in so many ways, from the types of time to the business cases concept. I can prioritise better; I can say NO easily if I don't want to do something or if it's not a valuable use of my time. I think it was the most valuable time spent possibly in my life. I loved the course, thank you so much Annika."

Lisa "More opportunities, less frustration"

Changes I have implemented as a result of this program have had a very positive impact on my life. The group discussions were a major asset to the program, learning from the experiences of others and including their practices in my life greatly helped with my time management skills and in turn increased my energy to enjoy more activities in my personal life improving my relationships which I am truly thankful for. I feel I am in control of my time, I am making conscious effort not to allow others eat my time, my skills at delegating have improved and I no longer feel guilty about it.

Tomas "I have learned not to overdo planning"

It has been very helpful to actually take time to manage time. I have learned not to overdo planning and that it gives structure and a way forward when done right. What I liked the most about the programme were the coaching sessions.

Stina "Helped me take control"

AstraZeneca

"This training has helped me to reflect and take control on how I want to use my time both for work and free-time. What gives energy and what takes energy? What should I do less of and what should I do more of to feel good, not just for the moment but for the rest of my life."

Becky "More grateful with time and life"

This course made me feel more confident when presenting and supporting colleagues.A simple change, like really listening when others speak, can make a big difference. Now, I find it easier to talk with senior stakeholders. Overall, I gained valuable skills from this course.

Eva "I now use these tools and techniques in my daily work"

Director, AstraZeneca


We talked about different leadership strategies, storytelling, and communication. I now use these tools and techniques in my daily work and meetings. I feel more confident in my role.

I learned many useful things. One important lesson was how to interact with team members in a more thoughtful way. I also learned how to prepare for presentations using Manuel's techniques. I enjoyed learning about storytelling and how it can help influence people.

Emelie
"Now I work in a way that suits me and my leadership style."

Global Project Manager AstraZeneca


It was great to be on a course where I had an assignment to focus on. The 1 to 1 coaching helped me stay on track with that and in the group sessions we could interact and learn from each other. During the time of this programme, I have started to take more space and I work in a way that suits me and my leadership style. The feedback from my colleagues shows that it is appreciated with a leader that steps up to the plate even more than before.

Anna

"Insight and awareness about my leadership and what I need to be at my best."

The group discussions have been very rewarding. This program, combined with the work I have done this year with Clifton's Strength Assessment, has brought further insight and awareness about my leadership and what I need to be at my best. I think this is a good course if you are interested in better understanding your leadership style and getting tools and support to deal with different situations

Jennie

"I have come to appreciate and feel comfortable with my way of leading."

Associate Director, AstraZeneca

I wanted to better understand my leadership in relation to others and I have come to appreciate and feel comfortable with my way of leading. Leadership can be done in many ways and I see that people appreciate leaders who are fully themselves. This makes people feel safe and allows everyone to be more of who they are. I enjoyed the course and found the group discussions interesting and helpful.

Anneli

Sr. Director project Management , AstraZeneca

It has been a privilege to participate in this training.

After the program I don't feel guilty anymore. I accept things more easily. I am more aware now of different categories of time and the fact that if I don't look after myself, my glass will be full of waste time and no energy. I want to appreciate Annika for her willingness to help beyond the business she runs. Annika is a " hero" because she helps people change their lives every day, become better and find happiness.

Fredrik
"Everything is clearer."

Director AstraZeneca

I feel more comfortable with my contributions and interactions at work, they are more professional. Very good that this was not a one-week course, instead something that we keep coming back to throughout the year. Main take-away is the general state of mind post each time we meet, everything is clearer.

Li

"Helped me feel in control of my life."

Medical Doctor

Annika is a great teacher and mentor. She is very patient and a great listener. She helped identify areas I could work on, gave me bite-size practical advice to work on and checked back on my progress. She helped me feel in control of my time in this hectic world. I highly recommend Annika and her time finder package!

"A very good learning experience"

Senior Group Director, AstraZeneca

I liked learning about the different leadership styles, understanding that we are all different and that it is good. I like all the different tips. Sometimes I go back to previous sessions when I want to use some of the things we have talked about. I have used the mindmap to see what we have talked about. A very good learning experience and it has been good to get to know everyone, even if we have met virtually.

Mandy

"Great to practice leadership skills"

Project Manager, AstraZeneca

It is great that we have had this monthly. If this would have been an intense course over just a few days I would have forgotten most of it by now.

The conversations with the course attendees were interesting and also contributed to a wider perspective of the different topics that were included in the course.
