Coaching is a self-reflective process, allowing you time to explore, plan and reflect on the actions you have taken or are about to take. Coaching is not about getting advice, because you are in control of your direction. Through coaching, your thinking will be explored , encouraging you to unpack the various factors and influences involved and raise your awareness to more and different possibilities and approaches.
At Coaching Focus, we believe great leaders are clear, consistent, confident and considered. Through coaching, you will have the time and thinking space to develop these strengths in your leadership style and make use of a coach’s mindset in every conversation you hold.
Whether you are early in your leadership career or a more seasoned leader, Janine will encourage you to design the leader you truly want to be and help you be that leader everyday.
Are you being the leader your team needs you to be?

Commonly Asked Questions
Will our conversation be confidential?
I am often asked to coach several people in one organisation and I stress with everyone I coach that their story, their challenges and what we work on together is our business and no-one else’s. I operate under a code of ethics where confidentiality is paramount. If we are to submit a coaching report to your organisation, the contents of that report are decided together.
How many sessions are recommended?
6 sessions across a semester would be a minimum, with the sessions spaced three weeks apart. Across a full year, between 10 and 12 is quite common and a good number to get real change in the way you lead.
