This month, we are shining the spotlight on leadership coach Jackie, a coach with more than 1,400 hours of practice.
Named the most influential executive coaching and facilitator in 2021 and the most influential businesswoman in executive coaching in 2020, find out more about who Jackie is as a coach, her approach to coaching, and what attracted her to the work of The Leadership Coaches here.
Who Are You as a Coach?
I am Jackie, a PCC coach and digital leadership development facilitator. Having worked in the corporate world for over 17 years, I empathise and understand the context, complexities, and dynamics that this environment brings to individuals, leaders, and teams.
I have developed a wealth of experience in enabling others to achieve their career and personal goals, which has provided me with a strong foundation for success in my coaching.
I work with global, commercial leaders in different ways, crossing cultures and languages to support them to overcome their challenges, enabling them to become the best version of themselves.
I listen, challenge, and create the space for clients to explore the "why" so that they can ultimately improve the "what".
I continue to invest in my own professional development as I believe that enables me to provide the best service possible to my clients.
What Is Your Approach to Coaching?
I believe that the client is the expert on themselves, their challenges, and the solutions that they put in place to improve their sense of being and therefore their performance. I do this by giving clients confidential time and space to reflect, increase their self-awareness, and accelerate their thinking.
Using a wide range of coaching approaches and tools I flex my approach and partner with them to find that “lightbulb moment” and gain clarity on the way forward.
What’s Your Superpower?
I am a grounded voice who gets to the heart of the matter with laser precision. I do this through deep listening and holding the mirror up. This allows me to challenge thoughts, perceptions, and concerns that ultimately ensures transformational change takes place.
What Do You Like About Working With The Leadership Coaches?
There is a clear alignment between my own personal values and the values of The Leadership Coaches - integrity, excellence, and advancement.
I love the diversity of the work that The Leadership Coaches do, both the range of sectors and businesses as well as the different people supported. This allows me to create relationships where people feel they can be open with me and share their thoughts and challenges.
My joy comes from spending time with people, to find the answers they seek, rather than telling them what to do.
