You were a sensation! That of course was to be expected, as (the person who recommended you) is a hard judge of facilitators and does not impress easily.

I have engaged Siebert a number of times in recent years and will continue to do so into the future. He has an excellent understanding of strategy across ... industry, academia and government and is able to develop strategy that can be operationalised for positive outcomes. Since involving Siebert in strategic planning within my branch, the branch has gone on to exceed KPIs and be recognised as a leader across government in our field. Siebert is particularly skilled in involving employees at all levels in strategy creation and ownership which positions the work for success. I have no hesitation in recommending Siebert for Strategy Development and Planning.

The Being Group brought extensive experience to the development of Cenitex 1-3-5 Strategy that delivered a comprehensive, contemporary, and implementable ... strategy. They delivered in very short time frames high quality products.
Frances Cawthra
CEO
Cenitex
Over the last three years we have worked with Siebert on a couple of occasions as we have looked to make our business more commercial following its conversion ... into a State-owned Corporation. Most recently Siebert has helped work through a bottom-up strategic planning process. This has involved small regional meetings with senior and middle level managers and finally a two-day workshop involving 90 of our staff in Sydney. The process Siebert has run for us has worked particularly well. He has enabled meaningful engagement by our staff, collated their ideas where useful but able to diplomatically keep things on track where more speculative. Importantly he has very skilfully reworked our Vision, Mission and Values into a new Statement of Purpose and Values utilising a wide range of input from the organisation. He worked closely with myself and my senior management team throughout the project which has produced a bottom-up plan that we as senior management are happy to sign off on and take to our Board. It has been a very worthwhile process.

The independent counsel you have provided to senior management has been of great assistance to not only developing them as managers but also as people.
David van Aanholt
CEO Asia Pacific
Goodman Limited
Having had the benefit of his consultancy and expertise in my previous senior managerial corporate role at a listed ASX group, Siebert was one of the first ... people I turned to when I established my own company. His advice, which I have continually sought out over the last 10 years, is always considered, insightful and practical. Siebert has an unmatched ability to not only understand the overall strategic goals of a company but to understand the individuals within, and then help management chart a course for the business while also unlocking each individual’s own potential. Siebert has, both through his direct interactions and through the leadership advice he has imparted on myself and my senior team, ensured that our entire team feel connected to the goals and direction of our business and motivated and empowered to achieve.

I have had the pleasure of being introduced to Siebert this year. Siebert’s measured and thoughtful approach to leadership has had a profound effect on my ... approach to managing a complex program of works. Siebert has managed to distil ideas and concepts I thought to be complex and convoluted, helping me effectively motivate, lead, and connect with a large consultant team.

Mr Neethling is an excellent facilitator. He adapts to the needs of the group, understands the needs of the client / outcomes required, and uses relevant case ... studies, examples and stories as powerful learning tools in his sessions.

Throughout my leadership journey I have come to understand the importance of collaboration, not just as a feel good ‘buzz word’, but as an imperative ... business tool and an essential future-focused leadership capability. In a world of competing agendas and priorities, sophisticated collaboration skills are critical for meaningful outcomes.  That’s where Siebert came in for my teams! I have called upon Siebert’s expertise throughout the previous year to support leadership teams to understand the power and potential of collaboration and the practical tools and strategies that can be applied for the type of collaboration that accelerates enterprise agility. Siebert also explores with leaders the pitfalls and obstacles of collaboration and how to avoid and overcome these. The icing on the cake for me is Siebert’s engaging. He always impresses the room with his unique balance of master storytelling, interactive activities and practical strategies for leaders to take away and apply to their practice.
Allison Doyle
Service Manager, Medicare

Your presentation hit the right note exactly. I’ve had a lot of people talking about it to me, both on the day and since. Thank you again for your time and a ... thought-provoking presentation.
Catherine Dolle
Business Continuity Manager

Siebert facilitated my team planning day and it ran like a well-oiled machine from start to finish. His use of story-telling, visual imagery and engaging ... activities challenged the team to think and act differently. The pace was high but we never felt rushed. There was a good balance of practical activities interspersed with management theory and lots of laughter. We moved fluidly from one activity to the next – steered and supported by Siebert. It made me realise that the difference between a ‘good’ facilitator and a ‘great’ facilitator is huge. Siebert’s professionalism, knowledge and passion for building better teams are evident in his facilitation style. He has a way with people that instantly puts you at ease and makes you want to participate.
Joanna Battersby
Director
NSW Department of Family and Community Services
Siebert brings a very structured but versatile approach to change management and mentoring that is engaging, encouraging and thought provoking. He is a very ... values-focused person who seeks to improve your performance because he wants to, not just because you have asked him to. He tailor makes his approach to suit your style and comfort zone, although he will use the opportunity to stretch your reach and vision and get you into a place where the not so comfortable but important issues are dealt with in a meaningful and productive way. I always looked forward to my time with Siebert over the three years that I had the good fortune of involving him in my work life.

Siebert is a highly engaging speaker. By using his personal experience from having worked in several countries around the world, he was able to captivate our ... audience in way that made them question their own approaches and identify personal areas for improvement. He is motivational, but at the same time grounded. He balances strategy on one hand with down to earth execution on the other. His talk balanced strategy implementation with everyday actions, giving his audience a great framework to effectively reach the goals we strive towards as an organisation.

What a wonderful experience we had with The Being Group. They put together an absolutely amazing video for us and patiently listened to all our special ... requests, and advised us on things to do. We couldn't be happier with the outcome. We threw scramjet technology, TRLs and all kind of space terms at them, and they soaked it all in, understood what was important to highlight and executed the project to the highest standards. We give The Being Group five stars — and hope to give them many more for future projects. You guys rock! Thanks a million.

I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you for a great Benchmark course, I thoroughly enjoyed it and got a lot from it professionally. After past ... experiences, I backed away from wanting to manage people and be in a position of leadership because I didn’t think I had what it took. I now realise after completing the course that I just didn’t have the right tools and knowledge. I’m now inspired to become a leader and manager again and can’t wait to put the knowledge into practice. Would you happen to have a PDF version of the Benchmark workbook that I can keep digitally for future reference? It was a pleasure to meet you, and I hope to see you again soon on one of the Masterclasses.
