"I found Jane to be very patient, insightful and knowledgeable throughout. Nothing is too much trouble and she has been available to help every step of the way. Her coaching style is calm and empathetic but also probing and challenging and this has made my supervisions extremely useful and is making me a better coach. The workshops were well planned and tailored to suit our specific needs. There were a number of changes going on in our organisation at the time and Jane flexed the content and timing at very short notice, to work around these changes. Nothing seems to phase her and her subject knowledge is impressive. It was clear from the first workshop that Jane has a depth of knowledge, extensive experience and is well read in the relevant theories and models, as well as the practicalities of coaching and mentoring. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Jane to others, or in seeking Jane’s services again in the future"

As a result of this 2 day workshop my team were able to confidentially hold successful and productive career conversations with members of the organisation, were more aware of, and developed team members potential and were confident to use a range of tools and techniques to develop their career coaching techniques.

These workshops provided team members with the skills, tools and techniques in order to build and develop a high performing team. Following the workshop team members understood where their team was is in terms of team development and had an action plan to embed their learning from the workshop to help them improve their team performance back in the workplace. I co-facilitated with Jane on a number of the learning events and she was an absolute joy to work with - highly collaborative, supportive, flexible and creative. The delegates really appreciated her engaging style of delivery along with her understanding of their specific learning needs."
