Hi, I’m Jen

I’ve been supporting leaders and managers for over 10 years, through 1-1 leadership coaching and management development programmes. I’ve learnt what skills, approaches and mindsets help individuals perform well at work and I want to share that with you.

I used to be a manager of a big team myself and I know that access to management development was the difference between sink or swim when the going got tough. I remember how it feels – the challenges, the pressure and the juggle. I also know that many managers arrive in senior roles having had little to no investment in their growth as a leader and I’m on a mission to change that!

One of the areas I was struggling with was with my confidence and personal presence. My manager put me in touch with Jen and we agreed to undergo 6 coaching sessions. Jen helped me to take ownership of my own leadership style and we carried out a number of exercises to help me understand my motivators and drivers. I have come to understand my strengths and how to best use these to support my team, and Jen also helped me understand my weaknesses- meaning I can recognise what will require more of my energy and make sure I allocate my time better. I would recommend Jen to anyone who is looking for ways they can better understand themselves, improve their confidence and raise their profile at work.  She is a fantastic coach.

If you are looking for excellent coaching, then look no further. Jen has years of experience and great skills. I learnt much from her over the years. I recently introduced a new mentoring programme for young people at the organisation I work for and Jen’s great coaching tips and techniques all came back to mind and came in very useful!

I would highly recommend Jen! She helped me work through some complex questions with the perfect-for-me mix of empathy and humour, and shared valuable tools and techniques that have boosted my confidence and skills. Sessions were thoughtful, creative and inspiring, and I always left feeling energised and optimistic. This was my first experience of coaching and before we started I was honestly a bit sceptical, but working with Jen has enabled me to achieve far more than I thought I could.
