What Our Clients Say

We are proud of the feedback we've received over the years from satisfied and happy customers. Thank you for your comments...

A valuable learning experience

In the past few years, the Ivoclar Vivadent IT department has undergone enormous changes that have impacted the way we work. We have moved from a system based on local engineers to a “follow-the-sun” concept with virtual, geographically dispersed teams around the globe. However, the virtual and remote collaboration of people from different cultures and across time zones doesn’t come without challenges. Mr Bonnes’ expertise and knowledge in this field has contributed to further develop the team spirit and build trust among our international, virtual team of IT engineers. He expertly conducted an outstanding workshop and delivered a valuable learning experience for all of us.

— Ramon Donis, Head IT Infrastructure
Ivoclar Vivadent AG

Best investment

Sean managed to truly engage the team, which is for a topic as “dry” as the Log Frame matrix is an amazing achievement. He did so by inviting them to play, involving them, listening to them, and together building new skills. It was great fun, the lessons learnt priceless, best investment in enhancing our team capabilities so far.

— Bas de Leeuw, Managing Director
World Resources Forum

Internationally experienced

We sought an internationally experienced and proven sales professional with expertise in the high-end, capital goods sector for our annual re-seller sales meeting. Eighty participants from more than 30 different countries attended and Sean Bonnes was able to effectively combine sales theory with our specific market in an exciting and compelling way. He expertly facilitated the group work that revealed some valuable key learnings.

— Oliver Zünd, CEO
Zünd Systemtechnik AG

We are now interviewing far more professionally

It was after we consulted with Mr Bonnes that it became clear that our greatest and most urgent issue was selecting the best people for open positions within our fast growing, medium-sized energy business. Mr Bonnes quickly designed and delivered a hands-on Interviewing & Recruitment workshop to the recruiting managers. As a result they are now interviewing far more professionally and we have recently recruited motivated and high calibre candidates who fit the job profiles and company culture significantly better than before. We look forward to working with Peregrine Consulting and in particular Mr Bonnes to bring our business forward in the future.

— Michael Grabherr, CEO
Mons Holdings AG

Exceptional

With regards to facilitation, presentation and teaching skills Sean stands out from his peers as exceptional. He quickly gets to grips with what is required by a group and using an impressive number of learning aids and tools moves them at their own speed through self-reflection to an improved and more effective state.

Let's Walk 'n' Talk - Episode 7 - Team Effectiveness/Enablement

26 May, 2020 / by Sean Bonnes

Your people working together effectively in teams is your number one competitive advantage. There is no magic recipe, no silver bullet at it were. We are simply all too quirky, full of foibles and imperfections which makes great teamwork elusive.

We have all, however, witnessed great teamwork at different points of our lives, at work or at play. So what is it then that makes effective teamwork possible.

I have seen first-hand how applying the principles from Patrick Lencioni's book, "The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team" has opened the eyes of team members and their leaders at all levels in organizations and enabled them to be way more effective.

Once a diagnosis is completed on your team, applying and learning a few uncomplicated behaviors will help the team to address any dysfunctions that are holding them back from achieving way more than the sum of the individual members of the team.

If you'd like to enable your team to be more effective, please don't hesitate to reach out to me — I'd be delighted to offer my assistance.


Let's Walk 'n' Talk - Episode 6 - Conflict Management

25 May, 2020 / by Sean Bonnes

Conflict is part of our lives each day. Situations will arise where someone else's concerns will be different to ours. We are not speaking here about something dangerous and destructive, rather differences of opinions that can be handled constructively to achieve an outcome that is good for all parties. Some are better than others at handling conflict.

Rather than falling into our habitual way of dealing with conflict, having time to think, and then choosing a conflict mode that suits the situation and the other person’s style, is a massive help in arriving at a better, more productive and constructive outcome.

Knowing that you have choices in a conflict, and then exercising the right choice, enable you to take control in a conflict situation, to everyone's advantage. It may sound like a cliche, but win-win is usually the best outcome.

Please feel free to reach out to me should. you wish to discuss this interesting topic and share experiences and tools that have helped you or could help you.


Let's Walk 'n' Talk - Episode 5 - Situational Leadership

21 May, 2020 / by Sean Bonnes

At its core, leadership is essentially a shared influence process, working with your people, empowering them to accomplish their goals and the goals of the organisation.

The situational leadership model is very helpful to leaders and their teams in getting the job done and obtaining results. Situational leadership is something you do with people, not too them and demonstrates how essential it is for a leader to understand where her/his people are in terms of their competence in accomplishing a certain task and their attitude, commitment and feelings.

The beauty of this tool is in its simplicity and ease of implementation. Once you get it, you've got it! And it then simply takes a little bit of practice to master. The result are spectacular and  you will see an immediate impact on the energy, creativity and resourcefulness of your team.

If you'd like to understand the model better or learn about how it could help you in being more effective as a leader, please don't hesitate to reach out to me for a conversation. I'd love to hear from you. Let's speak soon.


Let's Walk 'n' Talk - Episode 4 - Recruitment/CARD

15 January, 2020 / by Sean Bonnes

As a successful leader, you bring enormous value to your organization by recruiting and developing new people in your team. This is a weighty responsibility, not to be taken lightly and we cannot afford to rely on a "belly feeling" in our selection process as once may have been common.

The recruitment area is also sensitive in terms of discrimination and processes are required to remove bias. During the recruitment process we need to establish which candidate is the best cultural and competence fit for the organization and role and cannot afford to compromise. Mistakes can be extremely costly and are often way in excess of the budgeted annual salary for the open position, not to mention other collateral damage.

As a new or experienced leader, being trained in effective recruiting is not an option. If you would like more information I would be delighted to hear from you and would welcome the opportunity to assist you and your fellow leaders in supporting your organizations efforts to attract and retain great talent.


Let's Walk 'n' Talk - Episode 3 - Personality Profiles (DISC)

27 December, 2019 / by Sean Bonnes

Opinions vary on the value of personality profiles, but what they mostly have in common is to try and understand how and why we act, react and communicate with others. One of the key benefits of these profiles is in helping a multi-cultural, cross-generational bunch of people who may all be working for the same company, to improve their effectiveness in communicating within teams and across teams. It's hard to measure the value and contribution to your triple bottom line, but it has become more and more apparent that this can be a serious differentiator between mediocre and great companies. The most robust and time tested tool that I have seen and used is the DISC profiling tool.

I'd love to hear from you if you'd like more information or simply wish to discuss options for your workforce with the goal of helping us all to be better!
