Grow with Jan Taylor Coaching

Become the leader you want to be

My aim is to help school leaders like you

Are you ...

... a new leader?  If so, then I can help you define and gain clarity about your role.  We will work together to identify your strengths and look at ways to apply these in your areas of responsibility.  Through working together I can help you build the confidence and self-awareness needed in establishing yourself as a leader within your team.  We will identify the tools you need to influence others and lead your team successfully so that you add value to your organisation and have an impact.  We will also create a strategic plan for your growth so that you can become the leader you want to be!

... an aspiring or emerging leader?  If so, then I can support your decision making about the steps needed to take you into the next stage of your leadership journey.  As above, working with me will help you to identify your strengths and support you in developing the confidence to succeed, whether this is for a promotion or just a change in role.  Together we will work to identify what's right for you so that you can become the leader you want to be!

... a more experienced leader?  If this is you, then working with me can help you to define your leadership, align your values with those of your organisation and help you gain greater clarity and focus for your goals. It may be that you are feeling overwhelmed, overworked and undervalued and if this is the case then a chat with me can offer that supportive and confidential space to enable you to offload.  Sessions will empower you to take decisive action, help you build your team around you and lead  successfully from the front and within your team.  Become the leader you want to be!

... a leader who wishes to strengthen a team? I can work with individuals within a team to recognise the skills they bring to the organisation.  We will work to identify and align both the individuals' and the teams' values and look at ways to develop individuals so that they quickly add value to your organisation and become the leaders you wish to grow. 

If any of these leaders are you and you would like to ask me a question or discuss what working with me would be like, then schedule a consultation with me today.

Coaching Services

Supporting Your Success

You may be grappling with leadership challenges.  You may feel overwhelmed and burdened by self-doubt that is preventing you from being the leader you want to be.  You may feel you need to develop a new sense of purpose and confidence to achieve your goals. All these feelings are normal and probably felt by every leader at some point in their career. 

You have made that first step in looking at my website and you may be considering if coaching is right for you.  

I aim to provide coaching services that give you the tools for success to enable you to be the leader you want to be.

In addition to 1-on-1 consultations, I also host group programmes for those who are interested in developing their leadership within a group setting and wish to network with likeminded others. 

Occasionally, I also host workshops on specific areas of leadership.

For all services, email support is provided between sessions so that you never feel alone.

One to one coaching Session

Guidance, Support, Challenge & Inspiration

There are three types of leaders that can benefit from one to one coaching:

  • New leaders need time and investment to enable them to grow into their role.  They need to develop the confidence and presence to lead and manage effectively. 

  • Emerging leaders need to be provided with the opportunities for growth if an organisation’s aims are to be sustained long term.

  • Existing leaders can benefit from support in their leadership journey.  They need to be given the resources to continue to grow as leaders, be resilient and remain part of a strong team so that they continue to add value and impact on their organisation.  

All leaders need a confidential and safe space to offload and reflect on the multitude of challenges they face.

Research shows that having a coach can greatly benefit any individual in the workplace and accelerate their growth, whilst also adding value to the organisation (quickly)!  So if this is you, or you feel that someone in your team would benefit then book a free discovery call with me and we can discuss how we can work together.

Recent clients have given the following benefits of being part of a group coaching programme:

It’s been extremely valuable.  You get to speak with like-minded people and really think about ways to develop your own leadership skills.

It made me reflect on my next steps and the kind of leader I want to be.

I’ve gained increased confidence since being in the group.  It was also helpful to listen to other leaders in similar positions feeling the same way i.e. imposter syndrome.

The new 12 week programme commences 2nd November 2023.
