Christian Malone (LLE) Headteacher Heatherlands Primary School
As a growing school we were keen to use the coaching model as a strategy for personal and professional growth for members of our school teaching and leadership teams.
Jenny was able to provide bespoke support for individuals which both challenged personal perceptions and provided the support to help them to reflect upon their own professional pathways.
In a short space of time Jenny has been able to have real impact which has seen positive outcomes for all those involving in her coaching programme. Some of these outcomes have included the building of self-confidence and belief and opportunities for self-evaluation and reflection. On boarding for new colleagues was particularly beneficial in terms of getting the most out of people and making them quickly feel part of the team.
Throughout this process Jenny has provided a professional outlet for effective dialogue to enable all those involved to open up and overcome identified barriers. This approach has not only enabled professional self-improvement but has provided wider impact in terms of professional relationships and whole school practice.
