Janet interviewed about her approach to coaching:
One of the first areas of focus for me was building my sense of belonging/confidence within our senior management team. This was driven primarily by the fact that I decided to go to college and always wished that I had gone to university and obtained a degree. Within the first couple of minutes working with Janet she took a very direct and logical way of addressing this which made me feel more at ease.
I really appreciated Janet’s genuine, inquisitive approach and her sense of humour. I would recommend Janet for anyone who is looking to change their perspective and learn how to look at things from a different/higher level.
Overall I feel that the time I spent with Janet has had a substantial positive impact on my leadership development and has given me a perspective that will remain with me forever.
It has been an absolute pleasure to meet with Janet over the past two years. Janet always listened intently, asked the right questions and made it easy and more collaborative to discuss topics of concern. I have gained a lot of valuable insight into my leadership journey and I know I will continue to benefit from the discussions and coaching I received from Janet for many years to come.
