General Manager, Financial Services Industry

“When I first started working with Jeanette I had never worked with a coach before and was not completely sold on the value.  I was so wrong!  From the first meeting Jeanette has been invaluable.  Her gentle, probing approach has supported me through a promotion into a more senior role and helped me be successful in that role. Recently I had a challenging situation and a well-timed coaching session with Jeanette led to the following comment from my manager “you went from being broken to a shining light almost overnight”. I now see not only the value that an excellent coach like Jeanette can bring but also the magic she creates in helping me be the best I can be.”

CEO, Financial Services Industry

“Jeanette has a tremendous ability to guide people with a warm and supportive approach. She intuitively understands and responds to the professional coaching needs of both executives and young leaders. Our organisation has benefited at every level from her insight and skill, and she has helped us achieved profound cultural change.”

Marketing Executive, NFP

“Jeanette’s coaching has had a positive and enduring impact on my leadership style and capabilities. In particular, her coaching was invaluable in equipping me to support my team’s effectiveness and performance in a time of significant workplace change and uncertainty.  More recently, during a period of personal career change and reflection, a series of open and constructive conversations with Jeanette has helped me to formulate a framework for a new path forward.”

Partner, Global Professional Services Organisation

“In a short period of time Jeanette’s coaching led to a step change in our execution capability and significantly increased our resilience as an exec team. Jeanette challenged me to embrace the adversity we faced as an organisation and to bring confidence to the uncertainty and authenticity to my leadership approach.
