Over the last 15 months we have engaged Piotr’s services to help us to drive our coaching efforts and, together with members of my team Piotr has been hands on in both the design and delivery of the programmes we have run. As Piotr is so driven by results this has pushed us as an organisation to be very clear about our measurements and I personally appreciate how Piotr keeps bringing us back to these. It is rare for development consultants to do this and it is one of the reasons I enjoy working with Piotr.
If someone had asked me six months ago how many new clients I would sign contracts with, I would have been afraid to give this number. It has become reality though! I have managed to triple my turnover and my profits have jumped, too. I have let some of my “bad” clients go, as they would take up a lot of my time and order hardly anything. I have decided to work only with premium clients and I am surprised that there are so many of them out there!
Piotr is genuine, no-bullshit, and 100% direct, which was important for me while choosing the coach, or replacing the coach I had been working with for a few months. I got to the point at which I needed a real kick in the ass, and my previous coach was not able to challenge me the way I needed. Piotr did that during the second session – buy making me realise how much I had been fooling myself. I didn’t enjoy that but looking back I know it was exactly what I needed. If you are looking for a coach who will just listen and ask you questions, don’t contact Piotr. If you need someone who will actually make you give yourself kick in the ass, reach out to him.
Thanks to my sessions with Piotr, I realised where I was in terms of developing the clinic I own and manage. That led to working out the strategy I have been consistently implementing for the last five months. I know my priorities and I am no longer involved in stuff that used to take up much of my time but did not translate into business development. I did not have to wait long for the very measurable results - during the last 4 months we have increased the number of our patients by over 30% and at the same time our profitability has jumped by almost 15%.
Piotr was recommended to me by a colleague who attended one of the open workshops Piotr facilitated in London – as a very competent, high – energy and straightforward coach. At the beginning I was a bit skeptical, but at the same time I knew I needed someone to support me to achieve my most important professional goal – setting up my own consulting business in the education sector. The fact that Piotr made it very clear – right from the start, that he only works with people who are 100% committed made me think and commit. After seven months I was running my own business that was generating a profit comparable to what I had made as an employee, a little less than a year before. The investment was worth every single penny!
First of all, I have to say that Piotr is very different from all the other coaches I have met, and I know quite a lot of them – as I have been in Learning and Development for over two decades – first as an employee, and since 2017 – as an independent consultant. If you need someone who will push you out of your comfort zone, if you are really ready for a change and committed to working bloody hard – he is the guy. Rather than “catching you on doing the right things”, he will tell you straight in your face that you suck. He is definitely not the coach for the oversensitive types. He is the coach for those who are after success and they mean it.
