Janet W


Janet draws on her background as a single site and multi-site Operations Manager. Janet’s senior role in HR heading up the Learning and Development Department for a High Street Retailer which gave her a different perspective and together with her coaching skills allows her to approach situations through different lenses.  In addition to her corporate commercial background her coaching and training practice has allowed her to work in the Public Sector, Third Sector, Further and Higher Education, Manufacturing and Service industry.


Janet has over 30 years of Management, Learning and Development and Coaching background.  When she started work, Janet joined the banking sector and it was here that she realised she had a natural tendency to support others in their development. As time went on she moved into the Retail sector where she discovered the joy of enabling both customers and teams and managers through curiosity, learning and self-development. 

Coaching style

Janet listens, she is curious and encourages you to be too. She creates a safe and confidential environment for you to think out loud.  She facilitates your thinking from different perspectives. She offers you listening space with no judgement, personal opinion or advice where you can effectively explore, identify, define and determine important goals and forward actions.  We learn from each other, we challenge each other.  As an NLP Trainer: Janet can work with you and your organisation to help you understand and influence enhanced communication, motivation, limiting or blocking beliefs; acquisition of new skills to support change and success for leaders and their teams.

Coaching philosophy

Each person has a place in the world to use what skills and gifts come naturally to them. With the right support each person can explore, discover, re-discover that which they previously believed was out of their reach whether at work or in their personal life.  In this hectic environment of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, understanding what is driving us and knowing how to tap into our own resources is even more important that it has ever been.

The world is truly full of endless possibilities.

 Caitlin has made a real difference to my confidence and to the way I approach my business on a day to day basis.
John Baker, Regional Director, The Jockey Club
 It (coaching) unearthed a depth of confidence that I was beginning to question and enabled me to make a significant change within myself and my work.
Luke Joy-Smith, Managing Director - Somerset Social Enterprise
 I connected with my coach on our very first call and I believe that made the whole difference for me. I wish I could dig deeper on some of my remaining issues but unfortunately all good things have to end. I will definitely recommend coaching and have been already doing it for while. It definitely changed my life.
Stephanie Malka, Director NOC Service Engineering – EMEA
 Great to see that there has been a positive outcome from this.
Simon Gosney, Head of Learning and Development
 Tim has provided some high quality coaching support to me through a time of transition both in terms of job, career and organisational changes. He is a skilled and experienced executive coach who facilitated just the right mix of reflection, future visioning, challenge, compassion and stretch. I’d strongly recommend working with him if you are going through a career or organisation transition. Fun to work with, I always left my sessions with him feeling significantly clearer and more content with my overall direction of travel and next steps.
Neil Savage, Director of Organisational Development 2gether NHS Foundation Trust
 “I selected my coach on the basis that she had a completely different approach to my structured way of thinking. Katherine challenged me and took me way out of my comfort zone – scary and uncomfortable at times but eye-opening. These coaching sessions enabled me to see things from a very different perspective, gave me the time and space to reflect on my practice and provided practical tips and approaches as to how I can develop my performance.”
Zenobia Daar, Head of People, Governance & Performance
 Please continue with the programme. For a guy, like Paul, who does not use the word 'fantastic', who then uses it..it must be really good!
Marissa Bartlett, Head of Organisational Development - Mid Sussex District Council
 Everyone learnt a lot about themselves and others. It was the first training in English that one of my mentors had done and it was really successful for him. We have all come away feeling more confident. I have been on many development programmes and I have to say it has been one of the best I have ever attended.
Radka Lankasova, HR Manager, DENSO MANUFACTURING CZECH s. r. o.
 Steve Delivered a professional, relaxed and engaging session. Relevance, interest and clarity of delivering allowed for a very productive outcome.
Andy Castle, VP of Network Operations and Engineering, EMEA
 I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with Steve. He encouraged me to look at how I view myself and my actions, to actively seek positive outcomes to every day situations. My perception of myself has certainly changed due to my conversations with Steve and I would highly recommend coaching sessions with Unlimited Potential.
