Coaching & Mentoring!

Jane’s skills transfer well from education to any other profession or industry, effectively supporting both teams and individuals through different challenges and stages of personal and professional life.

Jane has many years of experience coaching and mentoring colleagues, teams, and leaders in the education field as a headteacher, advisory head and education consultant.  She empowers individuals and teams to become reflective, mindful of their strengths and areas for development, and to take responsibility for effecting positive change.

The coaching model Jane uses is based on the GROW model, employing active, non-judgemental listening and questioning strategies.  Through a supportive and in-depth process, she encourages organisations, teams and individuals to become more accountable for their actions and to develop a more thinking and thereby more productive environment.

Jane facilitates confidential discussions, challenges coachees on their goals and current realities, and nurtures sustained focus on identified development areas, supporting commitment to action.

Through coaching and mentoring, she believes that leadership journeys are transformed and personal lives are enriched.

Coaching is about positive and lasting change! 

Coaching unlocks potential and grows people.  The coaching experience enables sustained and rewarding changes in ourselves and consequently in others around us.
