"Jane introduced us to a way of being really clear about how we want to behave at work; as a team, with our customers (parents), the children and supervisory authorities. We use the framework we built to check-in with how we are doing as a team on a regular basis. We are much better at talking about behaviours and are quicker to recognise the times when we could improve. It has been a very positive experience for all of us and I feel we are better because of it. Carol. Early Education Specialist and SME."
