“During the transformation journey since Torus group was formed in 2015 Causeway Consulting has been a key partner, providing tailored interventions to support leaders appointed to new roles and new teams coming together. Whether via one to one coaching or facilitation at team away days Emma provides structure and control when needed and at times is invisible, allowing people to be themselves and surface conflict when they need to. Emma is highly respected by leaders and teams and brings with her a wealth and depth of OD knowledge and expertise.”
Penny Aspden, Director of OD, Torus Group
“Causeway have been a great help to us over the last months, project managing the mobilisation of operatives into four new geographical areas. Ruth’s methodical and consistent approach has brought real rigour to our process which has underpinned our successes.”
Paul Roberts, Executive Director, Guinness Property
“We commissioned Causeway Consulting to work with a Senior Management Team in the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group in Manchester. They designed a team and individual coaching and development programme over eight months.
The programme really challenged individuals to think about how they were personally contributing to the culture and development of the team.
Emma created an atmosphere which encouraged openness and inspired positive communication. The work has really transformed the way the team operates and I would highly recommend Causeway Consulting.”
Sharmila Kar, Head of HR & OD, NHS Central Manchester CCG
“If you are looking for an individual who can take complex information and really get you to focus on what is needed to develop comprehensive project plans and documentation, then Ruth is your person. She has a great style of questioning and thinking that is invaluable as a project manager. Ruth has worked with us on several projects and her eye for detail and clarity of written and verbal communication helped the whole process run smoothly – I would recommend Causeway to anyone who is undertaking a major project.”
Phil Royales, Head of GP Mobilisation & Improvement
“Causeway designed and delivered two mentoring workshops for us – one for line managers and the other for their direct reports. From the initial meeting to discuss our needs, through excellent pre-workshop promotion and delivery, Emma/Causeway’s work was focused and highly relevant. The well-attended events led to an insightful report which guided us on next steps. I would highly recommend them.”
Alison Blenkinsopp OBE, Professor of the Practice of Pharmacy, Bradford School of Pharmacy
“We have developed a highly successful partnering relationship with Emma over the last two years. She has been a clear and practical source of external support and has often stepped in at short notice to help us out.
Her work with us has covered several areas – including change management, team effectiveness and development, designing/delivering our recruitment and selection course and individual coaching. Emma has made sure that theories and models she uses with us are relevant and, when applied in a practical context, have enhanced the capability of our managers.
I would recommend Causeway Consulting to anyone who wants to develop and improve their business.”
Caroline Ackroyd MEd, Head of People Development, University of Bradford
“Emma initially came in to work with all of our Senior Management Team. She helped us identify where we wanted to be developing to further improve the way we operate at CGA both through individual coaching and team events. She was quickly able to work with us in such a way that allowed her to challenge us appropriately and develop a level of rapport that is often difficult to establish with external consultants. She is now working with 30 of our next level of Managers to support them in their Leadership Development. I would recommend Causeway Consulting to any organisation that wants to challenge itself and develop effectively.”
Diane Bellinger, Chief Executive, Community Gateway Association
“The best OD specialist I have ever worked with.”
Carol Matthews, Chief Executive, Riverside Group
“Emma helped me identify and understand my beliefs, thoughts and actions. We discussed my motivations, analysing openly and comfortably, and reached many new conclusions together. I have been lucky to be given the opportunity to work with Emma and draw from her inspiration to find improvement within myself.”
