Velocity Leadership Checkpoint Reviews

The Checkpoint is a fantastic tool, even just going through the questions was really useful at gaining more insight, and then the report was such a great way of putting it all together! Michael is a wonderful coach and it was great to be taken through the outcomes and be guided with some really helpful suggestions. Thanks so much!

If you are looking to maximise the performance of your team/s (even some of your best one/s) I cannot recommend Michael highly enough to build on what you already have.  The CheckPoint profiling report that I completed was one of the best leadership profiling tools that I have come across. I was actually surprised at how well it reflected me, and in a number of areas I had low self-awareness of. As a result I have really been able to move forward and address/tweak how I lead with a much better understanding on the impact of my style (negative and positive) on others. 10/10 rating from me and my team across all fronts!

The Checkpoint process was well worth my time. It’s provoked a lot of thought about how I work with the team. I took some practical suggestions on getting better performance from direct reports as well as working more effectively with people who don’t report to me. Michael was willing to challenge me to highlight places where my assumptions are harming my team, yet it was done in a respectful and educational way. I’m sure I’ll improve as a leader and as a team player from more time with Michael.

I have just completed the VLC (Velocity Leadership Checkpoint) with Michael and found it to be an enlightening process. As a photographer I have more than a keen interest in psychology and have researched at length what makes people tick. Having experienced Myers Briggs and Extended DISC analysis, I found the VLC process a really specific and insightful assessment of areas I can work on. Not only is the unique metaphor around flight really positive, it has many aspects that embedded at a deeper level. The results were very personalised with positive positioning of areas for further development. The VLC is a great way to create insight around behaviours that can be elevate and landed well! Thanks Michael!

I took the Velocity Leadership Checkpoint just as I was taking charge of a new team, it provided me valuable information about the areas I’d need to be wary of and those in which I excelled – helping me know where I needed to depend on other people more/less, and the kind of skills I’d be looking for the team to provide as well as what I’d have to work on to ensure I was providing enough for them. The Checkpoint report that Michael provided and his overview of what it includes have been really useful when checking back in for/on myself. I’d recommend the Checkpoint for anyone leading a team to get some valuable insight on you and where you’re at.

I’ve been privileged to work with Michael for many years as I’ve grown my small business into a large company. Michael has been inspirational in supporting me through my management issues, my own confidence, and how to be a better leader. I’m also lucky to have been an initial client for the new velocity leadership checkpoint tool, it’s a recent initiative and it’s really powerful and insightful. I’ll be spreading it across all my senior managers in the coming year – reflecting on the way I do things, and then understanding areas of strength (and opportunities for growth) – all just just so valuable.

Wow, this Checkpoint is something, it was a super eye opener! A deeper level of insight, knowledge and understanding of how I worked and more importantly a greater appreciation of my areas of genius. Michael really quickly identified my strengths, things I can improve and more importantly which areas I need to stick to, to get the most productivity out of myself and others around me. Honestly one of the most valuable assessments I’ve done so far… I believe everyone should do it – my team sure will ???????? thank you!

I recently did the Velocity Leadership Checkpoint Assessment which was very comprehensive and covered 25 Leaderships behaviors across the five Capabilities. The Assessment report gave me deep and meaningful insights, both at a personal and professional level. But the highlight for me was the debrief and results analysis session I had with Michael following the survey. Michael shared the information very candidly with me as per my request and helped me identify tangible actions to hone my leadership skills. Michael was very professional and thorough in the entire session and made me feel at ease! It was a pleasure working with Michael! I would highly recommend the Velocity Leadership Checkpoint Assessment if you want to increase your self-awareness as a leader or help develop other leaders at your organization.

The Checkpoint process was a brilliant insight into my strengths and weaknesses, and how I have been dealing with numerous issues and pressures in my business and working life – and how this has impacted on my personal life as well. Having worked with Developing Leaders over a number of years, I have found Michael’s approach to be personable, professional and of the highest integrity at all time. I highly recommend their services to you if you want real direction in your business and managerial activities.
