My coaching experience was not what I expected, because my situation changed unexpectedly and my priorities shifted significantly soon after our sessions started. Jane helped me grow through a crucible moment experience and helped me develop skills and techniques that I didn’t even know were possible for me. I cannot express enough how appreciative I am for my coach Jane, she helped me save my career.
"Jane has initiated tremendous change in me as a leader. During a time of incredible professional transition and development, Jane has pushed my thinking through the use of powerful, open-ended questions. As a result of her coaching, I’ve learned how to focus on my highest priority actions, I have confidence to share my point of view in the presence of senior leaders, and I empower my team by encouraging them to take on greater responsibility and accountability. I have been able to push my limits and discover my true potential as a senior female leader. I am a better leader today because of the coaching I have received from Jane."
“When we began to work together, I was expecting you to give me a checklist of things I should do differently. Instead, you encouraged me to start by understanding who I am and how I come across to others. It took a few sessions for me to understand the value, but now I realize that understanding my personality and what motivates me has built a strong foundation that I can apply to all situations. When we added in the 360-degree feedback, it was clear what was working for me and what needed to change. You did a great job of holding me accountable for practicing new habits all the way through our time together! I was able to really explore some uncomfortable spaces, and it started with a better understanding of myself.”
“I wish we could keep working together! You were so supportive along the way, and yet you challenged me to think differently about how to be effective in this new job. After working with you, I know I can be successful in this role and the next!”
“Thank you again for the opportunity to spend significant time working on improving parts of my professional and ultimately my personal life as well. I know you are not a therapist, but I believe that our professional and personal lives are so intertwined it can be difficult to shift one side and not the other. The knowledge and advice that you provided is invaluable. You pushed me and pulled things out of me that I didn’t know were possible.”
Jane helped me to not feel stuck in my current professional situation. I’m someone who needs to know where I’m headed and through our work I have that well-defined goal and a path on how to get there.
Jane has a skill for listening deeply and offering insights that are valuable. I feel more confident after meeting with Jane several times for a few months.
Jane is a natural listener. Her feedback is based on understanding from the speaker’s point of view and then helping them to self-discover next steps to attain their goals.
Hi Jane, I wanted to let you know that I received a verbal offer this morning that far exceeded my expectations and makes me very excited to take the next step. Your guidance and coaching were instrumental in getting me to this stage, and I’m so grateful. Thank you for your encouragement, your nudges to get me to reach out to my network, and especially your invitation to reflect on what I was truly looking for in my next role. I want you to know how much your coaching has meant to me.
Thank you for being the voice in my head reminding me, all day, I have things to do because I am going to retire next year. This voice, along with your many other wonderful messages of direction and encouragement, has left me with a very positive feeling. We started out with me being terribly stuck and unable to pull myself forward. But we finished with me having a plan and some joy as I go. My sincere gratitude for your patience, continued guiding hand and above it all, friendship.
Jane did a great job of narrowing down my focus areas and interests (that maybe I didn’t even know I had yet) and turning to actionable next steps for those. I’m excited I’m leaving with some clear takeaways.
