Here is what some of my clients are saying about working with me:
Jane is a fantastic coach. She is open and supportive, assists in getting to the true source of the issue at hand and facilitates a coaching process with an ease and flow that allows for coachee owned solutions to be created. The value I have experienced through my coaching relationship with Jane has allowed me to realize new possibilities, deal with issues in order to let go and move on from them, and to truly feel empowered throughout the process. Jane is a skilled professional whose warm and kind personality allows for the building of great rapport and trust in a coaching relationship. I am thankful I have had the opportunity to work with Jane and look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.

I began working with Jane as a coach several years ago, at the very beginning stages of my career. Jane had the ability to recognize my areas of talent before I was even able to do so myself, and worked with me to uncover and direct these strengths. She is a skilled and experienced coach, with the ability to draw out one’s passions and related fears and work together to create tangible strategies to address both.
Jane is caring, non-judgmental and creates a safe, supportive coaching relationship to enable critical discussions and decisions to take place. I have continued to work with Jane for many years, through major life changes and career decisions, and she has been able to help me work through challenges and come up with strategies, while also making me feel confident and empowered. I truly believe that I would not be where I am today without Jane’s coaching and will continue to work with her as my career progresses.
C. M. Early Career Professional
I have had the privilege of working with Jane for my own benefit, as well as referring her coaching services to other senior leaders. I have known of her work as a facilitator and conflict resolution specialist for the past ten years and have benefited from her coaching expertise in the past 3 years. Highly skilled and capable in all three areaas, I believe her background, experience and training in each area creates the perfect complement to enable her to be an exceptional and gifted leadership coach. Jane is at all times professional, keenly aware of client confidentiality and boundaries, and is able to connect credibly with her clients.
Her questioning skills and non-judgmental approach invite a person think through challenging issues, next steps and take action. A particular strength of Jane’s is helping clients think through where they are in their current life and circumstances, to make the best realistic and holistic choices for themselves. She has worked with numerous senior leaders that I am aware of to work through transitions from work into retirement, and a second or third career, which is less explored area of coaching. She also provides extensive service to people mid-career, needing to juggle family lives and full time jobs and other stressors, which may include promotions or changing circumstances at work.
D. R Mid-Career Senior Leader
I have observed and admired Jane’s competence, tact and honesty as a facilitator, consultant and executive coach. I contracted with Jane to develop and facilitate training and tools to support senior managers in their roles as mentors and as a development and executive coach during the 2012 federal deficient reduction exercise. Her services were timely, well received and is highly regarded as an executive coach throughout the federal public service.
As a coach Jane has a keen ability to zero in on client issues by clarifying priorities, direction, challenges and responsibilities through focused enquiry leading to commitment and decisiveness. She is articulate at asking the tough question and yet … is blessed with a demeanor that cannot but help bring a timely smile – no matter what the circumstances. Jane is dedicated to understanding the human relationship and is constantly seeking new methods of learning, and then finding innovative ways to apply that knowledge. She is compassionate, a competent critical thinker and communicator with a strong desire to support those around her to succeed.
L. C Late Career Senior HR Professional
I have been privileged to work with Jane as a coach for over 2 years. Jane’s authenticity and energy creates a safe space for clients to explore what they want, to identify their goals, and to name obstacles in their way, many of which are self-created. She has a masterful way of cutting through the noise – helping her clients quickly zero in on what is at the core of their issue. Jane approaches her coaching without ego, adapting her approach to be in the highest service of her clients. In the same conversation Jane plays the role of acknowledger and encourager while not shying away from asking exploratory (and often challenging) questions.
Jane’s value based coaching, and use of powerful questions allows her clients to explore possibilities while at the same time, create realistic goals to confidently step into those possibilities. Jane is a grounded, powerful coach and I admire her skills, her energy and her passion. I am truly grateful for her support as I (continue) to define what I want, identify where I am holding myself back, and more intentionally design the next chapter of my career…and life.
