Do you manage a team which is going through change and uncertainty? Could you use some new tools to help you motivate and influence others? Do you want to feel ready for the next step in your leadership career? 

Heading up a team is a tough job: Getting the best from a diverse team of individuals, delivering against objectives and trying to find time on top of the thousands of emails for some strategic thinking.

I am passionate about supporting managers to feel confident, skilled up and ready to really enjoy their work. I run management development programmes that equip new & experienced managers with tools and approaches so they leave with new insight, ready for the challenges, and the opportunities, ahead.

I’m really excited to launch two new events for managers who could use a bit of extra support in 2021: 

The FREE 5 Day Work Relationships Fast Track is a week of proven tools & bite size daily actions to give your work relationships a boost, with support from me all the way through. Everyone welcome, no strings attached.

From Frazzled Boss to Inspiring Leader

My signature 12 week programme introduces my 5 Cs model that skills up and supports managers to become Confident, Creative and Calm, teaches core Coaching skills and equips them to be expert Communicators. It is a blend of 1-1 coaching, group sessions and independent learning that goes deeper on how to build a high performing team and adapting and developing leadership style, all through the lens of managing a remote team. Signs ups for the next cohort will be opening in June 2021, please click on the link below for more information and to join the waiting list or if you have any further questions please do not heistate to contact me.

 

I also design and deliver bespoke management development programmes for organisational clients, facilitated virtually or face to face. Do read this case study of a management development programme for managers in over thirteen countries, facilitated remotely. Contact me if you’re interested in discussing a bespoke option for your team.

What my clients say

Jennifer led and devised two workshop days on leadership coaching (in London and Sheffield) for Department for Education senior managers (Grade 6 civil servants). Jennifer devised an engaging session, which also included real life coaching session. Jennifer has a natural warmth to her and quickly put participates at ease. The session included high quality material and suited our brief exactly. The day was thought-provoking and gave participates the opportunity to reflect on where they are now and where they might want to be in the future. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Jennifer again for a similar session.

What my clients say

I really enjoyed working with Jen, as we co-designed the programme from start through to delivery and evaluation. Jen used her coaching skills in a number of ways throughout: in the programme design stage, helping us define our needs, expected outcomes, while keeping ownership of the course and its success. Then, during the webinars, she effectively balanced between supportive and challenging, to create a safe environment for line managers to learn. It’s been a delight working with Jen, and I’ve been able to rely on her facilitator expertise, while keeping the work fun!

What my clients say

It was really wonderful to work with a team who really made the effort to move towards where the team’s understanding and comfort levels are. No jargon, a comfortable atmosphere, prep and follow up. We have already had three people provide unprompted positive feedback – which shows how comfortable people are with this approach. Thank you so much.

Working with Jen is a pleasure. She’s very responsive in the planning stages and confident and capable facilitating a room full of diverse colleagues. She recently ran a team coaching day for my globally dispersed team who had only just met, focusing on agreeing effective ways of working together. She got great results in a short space of time. Jen’s instantly likeable and great at what she does. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
