Forte Consultancy undertook a development center to help us see the skill gap and the preparedness of our people for the next phase of strategy. I myself found the engagement to be very useful and insightful for my own growth and this was mentioned by a majority of our staff themselves. The recommendations provided will help us to see what actions we can take in the next phase of strategic change at FRC
This interactive session gave me new perspective regarding interview process and had very interesting video content. This is a very good program which gave exposure to attitudinal and behavioral value of a interview.
I really enjoyed and learnt about the psychological process of interviewing skills. Many things that we neglected during the interview seems very important now. Also realized the importance of building confidence within the panel to conduct a smooth interview.
Rozaine along with the team at Forte conducted an assessment center for the selection of management trainees for Hayleys Group which entailed a variety of assessment methods through which we were able to select the right candidates. The assessment center was tailor made to suit our requirement. The reports of the candidates were comprehensive and easy to interpret. By using a client-centered approach, Forte predicted much of what we witnessed in the final interviews, initial training and performance of these candidates thereafter.
LEADS commissioned Forté to design and construct an organizational competency framework that encompasses all the various grades of staff in each of its service areas and to thereafter inform the succession plan of the top management with a training needs analysis and individual development plans. The assignment was delivered with professionalism and utmost sensitivity to the culture. The framework no doubt will inform our future recruitment and existing performance management.
Rozaine was commissioned to train the managers on Crucial Conversations and Counseling Skills prior to a significant change initiative that was going to affect many employees. The program was well received and the participants learned the skills of conducting conversations with empathy and to deliver a difficult message that can easily create insecurity and threaten the status of the individuals.
First I met Rozaine at the Postgraduate Institute of Management (PIM) as a Visiting Lecturer for one of my Human Resources modules. I was inspired for the combination of theoretical knowledge and practical approach she had on the respective subject. Then I contacted her, when our organization had the requirement for a Coacher/Facilitator on Business Psychology. I am very much pleased to work with Rozaine as her approach is very professional. She understood the training need and supported our training goal very well. Her breadth & depth of knowledge about the subject and very unique ability to understand the root causes of workplace conflicts, which hinders the workplace performance are quite commendable.
As a person who is directly involved in employee relations of the Company, I found the ‘Counselling Skills’ programme to be very helpful, as it gave me much insight in to how to handle situations, where employees need help or are in distraught state of mind. The programme touches on many areas on practical experience, and learning obtained via the role plays added much value to an individual’s learning. It has been very useful for me in improving professional and personal relationships.
Rozaine at Forte Consultancy delivered a well -rounded program on EI using different methodologies to coach our managers in the succession plan. The program was uniquely designed for Cinnamon Hotels and Resorts and addressed some of the critical situations in the role of a manager and how one could recognize and regulate individual and social emotions. The individual feedback received from the participants has been excellent and the implementation of the learning is happening at a team level.
First of all let me tell you the feedback from the session was very good. The participants left wanting more and they found the skill of giving feedback useful in their post-appraisal conversations.
The training / coaching sessions were very inspirational, energizing, bringing lots of ideas, with both substantial and more knowledge together with interesting and focused discussions and exchanges. Made me think differently about things. Thanks Rozaine, keep up the good work !!!!!
We loved the session you did for us during our family reunion. I’ve never been involved in a session like that in either a personal or professional level. It seemed daunting at first but was such a lot of fun and a great way to get to know my cousins better! What a brilliant idea to invite you for a session with us! We hope you can be a part of future family reunions!
Thank you for your time in spending with us in our family reunion . It was an awesome experience to open up with my cousins and my siblings . All of us live behind the veil pretending to be someone and you set up the stage for us to come out of it. I was shocked to see so much emotion hidden under each of us and I think it was so relieving to open up with our cousins. We have spent several holidays in the past but this was so special because on that day we stepped out of the ghost shadow to become real and I thank you for enabling us to do that.
My wishes for u in all your endeavors!
I would like to commend the wonderful program by Forte. The personality profiling activities and the one to one sessions were absolutely fabulous. I was impressed by the fact that the report revealed so much of my own personality, and the articulation and interpretations by Rozaine on how and where I could use the report to manage situations better were very useful. It was a great learning, and time well spent!
In a span of 30 minutes, Rozaine was able to delve into my inner psych through thought-provoking questions and statements. It truly helped to get more clarity on some goals which were still taking shape. I would readily recommend Rozaine as a career coach and have done so for my leadership team.
Rozaine was very accommodative and was willing to listen and was very professional in her approach. She assisted me to realize the various angles which could be looked upon when solving issues in the workplace amongst people of different levels. Furthermore the importance of being yourself in whichever the circumstance was very encouraging. I received valuable insights for personal development.
Rozaine helped us to look at ourselves through new eyes and by doing so identify our strengths and weaknesses which in the end leads to better performance. We are eternally grateful for that. Thank you ever so much!
It was a largely beneficial and great coaching session that I had with Rozaine as a part of my leadership program. One to One sessions was the awesome experience, because her understanding is incredible about human nature and competitive office environment. It was easy to discuss openly any issues about private and work related without hesitation as her created the environment to express. During our sessions, I received valuable inputs on coaching methods and techniques which am using ever since.
Rozaine worked with us by engaging in a few coaching assignments. According to the feedback that I received from the selected executives, Rozaine’s approach is holistic and covers all aspects of life. She pays attention to detail and is meticulous in her approach.
Rozaine takes time to understand the client and align the methods of training and coaching to suit the need. At 3M, the coaching program she conducted was well accepted and some managers still talk about its impact on their work and life in general.
Rozaine conducted a study for the top leadership team and the findings were very helpful in understanding whether everyone’s voice is being heard. Further she conducted a ‘work life balance’ study that revealed certain insights into how work and work-life integration can be managed and facilitated.
In conducting a diagnostic study of the MAS Intimates facility – Slimline in June 2010, the professionalism, discipline and competence displayed by Rozaine was the reason behind the timely and highly successful conclusion of the project within the scheduled time period. Her focus and concern for the actual need of our organization, and the requirement that we put forward propelled her to offer us a well analyzed and constructed solution. She exhibited the required skill in her field, and the proper commitment to see the project through, qualities that I found worthy of admiration. She has displayed her ability to communicate and work with people belonging to various levels of an organizational hierarchy, while at the same time promoting authenticity and originality among them.
Rozaine Cooray from Forte did a study to diagnose the culture of my company. It was very insightful and professionally done. The outcome was very effective and it did somewhat changed the way we looked at our staff and HR practices.
Rozaine and the Forte team has a passion to serve communities and have traveled many parts of the country to deliver programs for the youth. One of the signature programs of reconciliation, called ‘One Sri Lanka’ was implemented in Seenigama and Matara that opened the minds of the youth in how they can live in harmony and to tackle unconscious bias as a community.
Rozaine and the Forte team conducted Career Guidance for our scholarship recipients and the feedback has been extremely encouraging. We witnessed firsthand how the team engages with the participants and walked them through the process for two days in order to unearth the potential of some of the most disadvantaged yet intelligent youth from different districts of the country. Many have secured good jobs in the workplace or have started an enterprise of their own.
Rozaine and the Forte team conducted a series of workshops for parents and students of various grades. Her friendly approach towards the participants of the workshops was appreciated. The contents including the struggles faced by students in their physical, emotional, intellectual and social development were found useful.
