“I first came in contact with the Bono techniques at a European Summit for veterinarians in Monte Carlo, where the Six Hats technique was used to obtain feedback in record time of 100 professionals from all over Europe about a veterinary product. In my Veterinary hospital we use this technique routinely to give and receive feedback, to discuss products and services, to lead meetings, to make decisions as a team or individually, to clear conflicts, to negotiate. As a coach: I use this tool to increase self-awareness of my clients, help them broaden their perspectives in such a way that they can expand their options when making decisions. It has had a huge impact in my hospital, where it has been implemented as an inherent part of our company culture. It has improved the cohesion of the team, as well as the leadership skills within the organization. When I went through my DBTS certification, I had already been using the technique in my hospital for at least two years. However, when I dug my hands deep into the training course, provided by our great expert, I finally really understood what it really meant; I learnt a multitude of details that otherwise I would never have appreciated. And also thanks to the dynamics created with the other students with similar interests, it was a plus to learning, in terms of the way in which we teach the subject”.

The experience has been impressive, in results, in dynamics, in effectiveness, staff enthusiasm. Her training capacity, leadership and personality are key to its success. Personally my experience has been very satisfactory, both at the professional level as staff”
