Janine gave me some fantastic coaching where I went away committed to an action that I had previously felt very uncomfortable about. Thanks to the confidence I had gained, I went one step further in what I’d planned and achieved a great outcome. Janine was the opening in which this whole shift happened so I can highly recommend her if anyone is stuck.
These testimonials from some of my clients should help demystify things a little:
The relationship with a coach is very personal, it relies on honesty, trust and empathy from both sides. Janine enables this whole process to happen seamlessly, she guides the conversation, helping you to address and work through your issues and in doing so, helped me reach conclusions that I would not have reached on my own. I have developed good habits and processes that have not only helped my business but also helped me to manage myself and the way I work. I understand myself better and know not only what my weak points are but also how to avoid, correct or overcome them.
The coaching sessions left me feeling exceptionally positive and had cleared any specific obstacles so I could move forwards with enthusiasm and excitement. Janine helped me step back from the issues, allow me to evaluate what I had already achieved and give me the time to re-appraise my goals and set out clear ways to achieve them. I felt guided by Janine but not led, all the ideas and impetus came from myself. Janine’s skill is her ability to help me alter my perspective and solve the problems myself. This leads to a longer lasting solution where I have actively developed skills to help me achieve my goals.
The sessions were like talking to a helpful friend who kept you focussed, on topic and provided insightful suggestions. Janine was able to help me dissect the key phrases we say each day, or obstacles we see and can’t find a way around, and look at them in a new light. Neither blunt nor pushy but a real facilitated experience helping me push myself to identify my blockages and how I wanted to work around them, or even reclassify them as mere bumps to gloss over rather than huge obstacles to divert my attention.
Despite culture/langauge difference and communicating through video call instead of in person, she impressed me with her inspiring coaching skills and boundary pushing questions. I definitely benefit a lot to make breakthrough both in work and more importantly on my personal development journey.
When you’re coached by Janine, you find that every session leads to an ‘aha’ moment! You realise something new about yourself – whether that’s a strength, something you need to work on or just an understanding of who you are. I found it incredibly empowering and allowed me to develop in new ways. It’s a fantastic process and I would recommend anyone looking to develop themselves to look to Janine
Janine helped me to achieve true breakthroughs in dealing with complex workplace issues. Janine had a way of challenging and probing deeply to allow me to think outside my traditional comfort zones. I highly recommend Janine’s Executive Coaching skills to anyone searching for a breakthrough at any level of management – she can help to get you there!
Janine has a unique way of challenging you and building up your confidence to have the courage take on big ideas, take accountability for relationships and drive towards results that you would otherwise feel were previously out of reach. I would highly recommend Janine as she delivers proven results!
Janine has been my business coach for almost a year. In that time we have cemented a fantastic and constructive relationship. Janine has been a great sounding board and advisor and with her varied international experience brings a cultural relevance to her advice which is especially helpful. She challenges my thinking and always builds on my competences and capabilities with a forward looking approach to support my professional career and personal development. It has been a pleasure to work with Janine and I hope to continue to do so.
Janine is a rare mix of being a caring listener, but with a healthy dose of tough love. Having been in senior roles herself, she truly understood how I was feeling. Janine helped me separate my emotional response from the business situation and channel my energies into moving forward. What I especially valued was the follow-up notes, prompts and tools she shared. Not only could I feel progress, I could see it too.
As my coach, Janine has done a tremendous job by being a resourceful sounding board and an action-taking catalyst. Janine helped me to gain clarity, think through critical issues and develop strategies to move forward. She asks challenging questions and encourages me to take risks whilst being extremely supportive. I have developed techniques that help me more effectively set expectations and to deliver feedback; and I have increased my ability to recognise opportunities to practice new techniques learnt. Janine’s approach is straightforward and goal-oriented. where results are easily measurable. I strongly recommend coaching from Janine, especially for senior leaders/managers who want to evolve to a higher level of personal and professional satisfaction
Janine inspires trust and respect quickly and from a wide variety of different personalities.
Janine has worked with our management team for the past 8 months, at a time when we have bought together two businesses and so wanted to align these two groups under common strategic objectives.
She initiated two streams of work with our newly-combined management team:
1) Understand our own and each other’s behaviours and motivations, then provide us a framework in which to interact so that we can build strong relationships with each other
2) Define common (key) objectives which underpin our business plan or the coming budget year
I’m very thankful we met Janine – we could not have achieved what we have without her. Her professional ability (proven throughout her career) is key, but her ability to engender trust from a group of strong and varied personalities is a rare and brilliant quality.
