The Founder/ Visionary

    We have a number of Debonairs Pizza stores and have been operating for over ten years now, always working on ways for our managers to improve their leadership skills and to realise more of their potential and power in their roles as leaders. The Performance Booster Workshop with Mel and her team gave our managers some space to escape the stores and focus on their personal leadership styles. They were also able to work on their vision and where they see themselves in the future. This is something not everyone spends enough time on and Mel’s methods are proven to assist in this process. They came away from the workshop with new energy and ideas on how they will tackle the challenges that life will throw at them. I can say that the workshop was money-well-spent. How can we grow our business if we are not growing our leaders? The workshop also came at a good time as we were negatively impacted by the pandemic and the looting that took place. Having been through the workshop our managers were better prepared to lead their teams through the times of crisis and we have come out the other side stronger and more unified as a company! I highly recommend investing in your leaders and the Performance Booster is a great place to start.

    Thank you Mel for helping me ask the hard questions and face the facts with regards to adapting my business to the current changing landscape. After only one Zoom session with Mel I now have a clear path to proceed in an effort to adjust my business to the changing needs of clients and the market.

    My experience of business coaching by Mel Tomlinson of Performance Booster was an eye opener, taking me out of my comfort zone, and prompted me to start thinking about the road I am traveling, my objectives and what I really want to achieve with my legal practice.
