It is no exaggeration to say that this was the best development I have had.  You have a wealth of experience and knowledge, able to answer even the most obscure questions with factual examples and confidence.

She is a confident, focused and challenging coach, providing a balance of empathy and understanding with high task focus and a desire for change.  Her experience ranges from 2-hour career coaching to year-long coaching programmes.  She enjoys getting to the heart of matters and working with individuals to make real changes.  Her background in line management and consultancy allows her to blend both organisational sensitivity and an understanding to people, to help individuals perform and develop within the environment in which they work.

Whilst Jane is structured, to the point and pragmatic, she is also supportive, empathetic, courageous and creative.  People she has coached often describe that they better understand frustrations they have been suppressing and are able to get things in perspective.

Integrity is key to Jane in life and in business.  She believes in trust and honesty and places a high value on the importance of confidentiality in the coaching relationship.
