“Very thorough, well-presented and the course exceeded my expectations. The course content was excellent, with so much useful information to now bring to real life situations. I thought it was a brilliant pace and I felt comfortable throughout – I really enjoyed it!” Assertive Communication
ND Focus Conference, Oporto, Portugal Sept 13-14th 2018
From The Organiser:
“The conference was fortunate to have Korinne Le Page of Thrive Coaching and Training who presented on soft skills that are useful for any project manager. This was a necessary inclusion to the agenda for any conference or workshop focusing on project management. One of the traps that project managers can easily fall into is go focus on process and technology but fail to improve communication and other soft skills.
There was impressive depth to the discussions in the workshop about inter-personal skills and communication. The participants were open minded and brutally honest with each other. Following Korinne’s diplomatic guidance, the groups were able to work through real-world challenges that they are currently facing back in their home offices. They were able to walk away with practical action plans that are undoubtedly already being discussed with their teams as of the time of this publication.
Tucker found this focus on assertiveness particularly interesting, since communication and soft skills have always been a passion of his. Tucker has taught workshops and hosted webinars on similar subjects, and was delighted to find himself learning new concepts and methods during the intensive workshop”.
“Dear Korinne, I hope this e-mail finds you well. My assertiveness progress is going really well. I have improved in various areas and am very focused on creating win-win situations for everyone involved, however, not letting my objective out of sight. I am much better in conflict management and quite pleased with the implementation of the tools and strategies I have learned. Both of us have profited from your talk and workshop. I have already passed your contact on to our CEO and have recommended your training”. AP, November 2018

“I decided to do the Life Change Weekend with Korinne after I’d attended her Time Mastery Workshop. I’d found the workshop very helpful and in the next week I’d be able to work more efficiently by just implementing a few simple things. The Life Change Weekend was intensive and helped me look at the blocks that are holding me back from my next level. We also looked at the personal assets that will help achieve my next stage of progress. It was two full days very well spent.” ML
“I attended Korinne’s workshop after meeting her at a networking event. Korinne is extremely pleasant, approachable, and a very good listener. After attending the workshop, and being offered the chance of a trial, personal coaching session, I felt compelled to meet with Korinne again to discuss some issues that I had relating to my career, ‘stumbling blocks’ if you will. Consequently, we discussed these issues, and she came up with a productive action plan that I am looking forward to putting into action. Highly recommended service!” SC

A One Day Journey to Someday Isle:
“The setting was priceless and you created a very safe space to share, cry and relax for the day. I had lots of takeaways from morning routines to feeling that I am not odd after all. My Journey to Someday Isle is well on the way, thank you.” NG
“Hi Korinne, thank you so much for Saturday you really have galvanized me into action. My dream of becoming a life coach doesn’t seem that far away! I felt it was exactly the right balance of information and group discussion. Wonderful, wonderful day, I have taken away so much from it. Thank you” SG
“Hi Korinne. Thank you so very much for today. You facilitated a brilliant workshop. I learned a lot and it made sense. Fantastic work. I am so glad I came. Was slightly dubious it would be of help to me as I felt it was more suitable for my friends than me which is why I booked on so that they would.
Anyway, I found that it doesn’t matter what your goal is, it is still a goal. It didn’t have to be life altering or Work related. I found it very helpful and hope to catch up with you again and attend another sometime. I discovered what I didn’t know I needed and exceeded my expectations. A very soothing aura but commanded our attention too.” MLG
“I loved the venue and how relaxed the day was. It wasn’t as “heavy” as I was expecting! I expected it to be good, and it was ? I really liked the space given to listen to each person. Often in groups, it can feel rushed, but there was a genuine interest in each participant, which felt very supportive. I thought the flow of facilitation was excellent in terms of content provided by you and space for people to talk.” SR
“I went along to one of Korinne’s retreats, on the recommendation of a dear friend, not really knowing what to expect. From the off I met with like minded people who not only embraced my joining them but embraced all that Korinne had planned for us. The whole experience has had a fantastic impact on me and has brought me together with some wonderful people who I am certain will remain in my life for a very long time to come and as close friends.
I admire Korinne’s ability to facilitate, listen and be warm and totally endearing. She genuinely cares about the benefits you will achieve. I am delighted to have been introduced to her, the experience and the wonderful people at the retreat. Les Cotils exudes peace and tranquility and was the perfect venue for this event. Thank you Korinne for bringing some sunshine to my world” A.B.
“I thought Mindfulness would be of benefit to myself and to help others I come into contact with. It actually helped me to discover the areas in my life where I needed to make changes myself which was a revelation for me.The course was well run and informative but also gave all those present the ability to speak freely about their own lives and troubles everyone keeps hidden or didn’t realise were affecting their lives.”
“I am putting some of the recommendations into practice now and am looking forward to the development of further sessions to expand and develop what I have learned so far on this new journey of Mindfulness. Meditation will become part of my daily routine to filter the stresses and strains of a hectic work and home life. I would recommend this course to everyone who wants to discover how modern life can compact on you emotionally and how to cope and alleviate the stress which comes with it” E.P.
“Here are some observations on the Mindfulness Workshop: I missed Professor Williams’ talk at St James because of a severe cold, so am pleased to have the title of his book. “Mindfulness” and “Meditation” appear largely synonymous, so Mindfulness is a good idea. I think your two minute meditation a valuable suggestion and intend to introduce it just before or just after my exercise routine. Thank you for a well presented and informative workshop”. M.B.
Life Changing Retreat:
“During one glorious weekend in early February 2017, I attended a retreat at Les Cotils Hotel in Guernsey, hosted by Korinne Le Page of Thrive Coaching.Her poignant title for this Retreat was “Life Changers”, and as I soon discovered, this was entirely appropriate in what it did for me and, (as I later found out) for the others in the group too. That the whole weekend was a resounding success, was not just due to the meticulous planning of a talented organiser, but also the insight and intuition of a truly gifted individual.
Although this is the first weekend retreat I have been on, I would guess that, (as in all things), it is possible to categorise the organisation of such, within a spectrum. At one end, are those who turn up, go through the motions, take the money and run. At the other end of the spectrum, are organisers who are fundamentally excellent, for, not only do “they” go the extra mile, they encourage “you”, gently and subtly to do the same.
The depth, breadth and width of their knowledge and experience is obvious, but, far from allowing this to over-complicate their lectures and teaching, they go beyond, to a functional simplicity of what is needed by this group, right here, in this moment. Korinne Le Page undoubtedly falls into this latter category. But don’t take my word for it ladies and gentlemen, sign up for a seminar or retreat, and you’ll find that the cost is small, for what I believe will, over time, repair your soul and make you whole…if you allow it!” SJ
One-to-one Coaching Testimonials:
“I have always experienced anxiety when asked to speak in a large group. As part of my role I am expected to participate in meetings or similar situations and I have found myself becoming increasingly anxious when ‘put on the spot’. I found out about the service Korinne offered via Facebook. I think it helped that I did not know Korinne and I read the profile and felt she could help. The sessions were held via telephone on a weekly basis which was convenient for me as I have an exceptionally busy life like most people. Everything discussed was in confidence and I felt I could be open with Korinne as she was easy to talk to.
She enabled me to think about how I could develop coping skills prior to approaching a particular event involving me speaking to a group of people. I have found it easier to speak in meetings since I commenced the consultations and although I remain nervous about certain situations I can see that in fact people are interested in my view and that I can express my opinion as well as everyone else and my opinion is valued. We also addressed some issues from my childhood which has influenced my self esteem in adulthood.
I would highly recommend Korinne as a coach to anyone who is struggling with the pressures of work or needs support regarding public speaking or similar issues” CLS
“Korinne has a wonderful warmth. She quickly creates a safe environment where one feels free to share issues and areas to work on. By the end of an hour my life felt in focus and I knew where I was going”. G.L.

SLP via GTA
“I was at a very low point in my life and Korinne helped me to see clearly where it was all going wrong. She is very easy lady to talk to and has some great coping mechanisms to help people like me who may sometimes feel that life just isn’t worth living.
After about 6 sessions I was feeling a lot better and am thankful that I met her. She is a very calming person and I knew it was the right thing to do seeing her once a week. Thankfully I’m back on the road to recovery and making great progress each and every day. God forbid, but If ever i get in to a similar situation I know she’ll be there to help me calm down and focus on addressing the root cause of my problems. J.C.
