Testimonial: Nicola Tiley – Allan Gray

"The concepts taught on this course apply to every person who has interactions with others. The TA models have given me additional lenses to use when looking at life. I found it immensely valuable to understand what my drivers are, and how different people have different drivers. I have also gained a deeper understanding of how I think and view the world. The group I did the course with also added great value with their different worldviews and standpoints. Every week after our sessions, I could see the concepts play out in real life. I was able to identify my own psychological rackets and games, and explore these with Marguerite, which helped me realize the life position I was reinforcing with the game. Marguerite explained all the concepts really well, bringing in real-life examples from her previous experiences which helped further my understanding. Marguerite is highly skilled at asking deep, probing questions in a coaching manner that allows the respondent to reach their own solutions. Marguerite has a wealth of knowledge and expertise. The course met and exceeded my expectations. I found myself marveling at Eric Berne’s insights gained through his observation of people. I will use what I’ve learnt in this course throughout my life.
