“Jane created an environment for me to really stop and think about what was holding me back in my career. She allowed me the space to not to just simply externalise issues but to understand how my behaviours (or my lack of “leaning-in”) were actively impacting the future. I had deep seated assumptions which were impacting my everyday – and these incorrect assumptions were bringing the past into my future. Shaking off these assumptions allowed me to grow in confidence and actually reengage with the business. The impact on me, my team, and the perception of senior leaders has been transformatory.”
Working with Jane has been invaluable in plotting out my overall approach and strategy to hone my overall commercial business case. Using the sessions as time-out working sessions helped with immediate challenges. As a result of our coaching, I have successfully delivered three high profile presentations and adopted the soft listening skills. I would describe Jane as engaging, professional, someone who genuinely cares about the coachee and their outcomes, and tries innovative ideas and techniques.
Jane’s overall approach and ability to listen enabled me to undertake self-analysis and work through my own thought process as to how I could improve a situation or approach it differently. It was very evident to me that Jane gained an excellent understanding and appreciation of my overall role in the firm, my key interactions, as well as the specific challenges I faced – and helped me to assess things in a different way and be able to adapt my approach to achieve better outcomes.
I feel that my coaching programme has been truly transformational for me and I am so grateful that Parthenon made the investment in coaching. When I started my coaching programme I felt that the points I was working on were amorphous and difficult to tackle (i.e. confidence, empowering my teammates, work-life-balance, etc.); however, working with Jane really helped me to identify the things that were standing in the way of being the person I wanted to be at work.
I’ve really enjoyed my year working together with Jane. She brings a calm and positive approach and has a brilliant ability to create a safe and comfortable environment where clients can feel at ease. Jane has helped me to maximise strengths, overcome development areas and work out the type of leader I want to be. Her coaching has equipped me with brilliant tools and techniques that are easy to implement and which I know I’ll continue to use going forward in my career.
A year on from working with Jane, I have experienced some tangible results in relation to my leadership effectiveness. I have received more than 20% increase from our recent employee survey with a 100% employee satisfaction in my leadership effectiveness from my direct reports. I valued our experience of working together and Jane facilitating the conversations so that I came up with the solutions for myself.
I’d have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Jane. Weworked together on a recent project and I found Jane’s naturalempathetic style, collaborative nature and clear focus onachieving the desired outcomes just what was required. An exceptional coach.
