”Then COVID arrived and we had to pivot and be versatile like everyone… my email was to let you know that during the toughest business challenge we have faced during my career, I’ve seen some unbelievable performances from every single member of my team.Sales Manager - Danny
Out of my time with TCYK I learned that to be performing at our best I really needed to empower all of my team to be Leaders Achievers in their own space. It resonated but like a lot of things, slipped from the front of my mind and I actually forgot to concentrate on it… my team and wider company had been steaming along ok but not without the usual pressures. Then COVID arrived and we had to pivot and be versatile like everyone… my email was to let you know that during the toughest business challenge we have faced during my career, I’ve seen some unbelievable performances from every single member of my team. I have no doubt in my mind that this has come from exactly what we were trying to achieve and it was happening all along right under my nose only emerging during adversity. I guess that was unconscious competence?!
”Thank you for bringing this style of course to the world, it's a little bit of all of the best bits of the wonderful teachers in the world - you've absolutely nailed it.Miranda KnaptonBusiness Manager, Blue Summit Construction
The way you own the good, bad and ugly of yourselves, show it and give permission and support to me to do the same was simply epic.
Taking time to remind myself of who I am, the bits that could do with some attention and the pieces I’ve over inflated through time was invaluable.
The biggest value piece I walked away from the course with was permission: to be me, to do it in my style, to own all parts of me.
Also a shit ton of new tools in my belt to not only help my role as a leader within all my life roles but also to be able to support others in their leadership discovery.
Thank you for bringing this style of course to the world, it’s a little bit of all of the best bits of the wonderful teachers in the world – you’ve absolutely nailed it.
”Both of you are not only brilliant but thoughtful, hugely experienced and just down to earth good humans.Head of Operations - Rachel AdamsSoda inc.
Wow thank you so much Tonia & Sacha. I’ve been on a lot of development and leadership courses but this 2 day adventure BLEW all the others out of the water. Both of you are not only brilliant but thoughtful, hugely experienced and just down to earth good humans. The content, structure and practical learnings are immense. I’ve already recommended loads of people to get a spot on your next course. Āku mihi maioha ki a koe.

”The trouble with Sacha and Tonia being such keen bullshit detectors is that you end up having to be brutally honest with yourself, revealing your own vulnerability.Director - Kylie HarcourtHGB
The trouble with Sacha and Tonia being such keen bullshit detectors is that you end up having to be brutally honest with yourself, revealing your own vulnerability. That’s what happened to me in two days, but the outcome meant that I have never had a sweating palm or a nervous moment leading my boards or my business since. I’ve reflected back and tried to ascertain the moment that it all came together for me, but I can’t define just one. It’s the collective learning and understanding that the strong personalities in the room also felt like me at some point. It’s understanding that it’s actually okay to feel vulnerable, face it and say fuck it, you’re in charge. I haven’t had another professional development experience that has been comparable to the learnings I got in those two days.
”This course was very powerful for exploring all that inside-out leadership means.Kim MacfieThe Limbic System
This course was very powerful for exploring all that inside-out leadership means. I am a consultant in the communications arena, and have attended a lot of courses and training in leadership but have never had it presented the way it is presented by The Company You Keep. The times where Tonia and Sacha had us interacting with one another and with the course material were powerful, memorable and instantly translatable. Sacha is an outstanding speaker and facilitator, and Tonia ensures participants experience and know how to truly deep dive to the core of their own leadership style and attributes. A dynamic duo who powerfully present courageousness.
”She has worked with hundreds of our team in workshops and training days. Every single time she nails it.Anna LyneHead of People and Culture - Les Mills
Sacha has made a significant contribution to our leadership teams over the past 10 years. Leading our leadership development programme, she has worked with us to create a 2.5 day experience that is truly transformational and has enabled our leaders to grow and given them the tools they need to step up. She has worked with hundreds of our team in workshops and training days. Every single time she nails it. The very best presenter/facilitator I’ve ever worked with Sacha keeps up to date with current thinking and builds from a solid foundation of experience and life lessons. I don’t think you’ll find a better leadership development trainer anywhere.

”The whole experience was entertaining and educational – I didn’t expect to laugh and learn as much as I did.Leadership Programme Feedback
It’s never easy taking a good hard look at yourself but it’s so worth it. I have new understandings about how I operate and a clear action plan for taking my team from where they are now to the next level of performance. The course had just the right amount of challenge and I appreciate the practical tools that I can apply as soon as I get back to work. The whole experience was entertaining and educational – I didn’t expect to laugh and learn as much as I did. Thanks.
”I’ve had to think about my rough edges and how some of the ways I behave at work don’t really help me or my team get to where we need to be. This programme has been excellent.Leadership Programme Feedback
Ouch. I feel like I’ve just had a really hard massage. Or been polished with a bit of sandpaper. Really good though. I’ve had to think about my rough edges and how some of the ways I behave at work don’t really help me or my team get to where we need to be. This programme has been excellent. I wasn’t sure about going at first because I’ve done a course already but this one was amazing – very grounded in real life business experiences – theory put into action which I thought was a great way to learn.
