Leaders and Talents are the drivers of organizations. They set direction, build an inspiring vision, create and implement strategies, push limits, and groom employees towards better growth and performance. Unfortunately, organizations often make the costly and painful mistake of tapping the wrong person for a key position.

With Leadership Assessment tools, organizations are able to measure leadership impact and effectiveness, leadership competencies, behavioral styes, and skills.

I started to engage the services of Theo (Fish Camp Learning) for some of his development programs since my last organization. From the experience as a client, our employees who attended his program provided encouraging feedback on what they took away from the program - both in terms of new learning and new awareness. I care a lot about experiential and interactive learning and Theo with his team has never failed me. Theo has wealth of knowledge and experience in various team effectiveness and leadership programs which helped me a lot in finding the right intervention and program for different needs and teams dynamic I have. Post the training program, Theo will also share his observations and feedback. I enjoyed his friendly nature and even temperament. I can whole heartedly recommend Theo.
