Hello, I’m Jacqui
I help women create their own path to success.
Women often tread a fine line trying to balance competing expectations about what success is. Sometimes, trying to do so can take us off course.
While you’re busy doing the juggle, it’s easy to drop the ball labelled ‘me’. Who’s got spare time and energy for themselves?
Yes, we all have obligations, practical realities, that restrict our choices.
We also have the freedom to choose what we do with the space that’s left. I help women find that space and use it.
My career – like my life – has taken a long, winding road, but now I’ve found my path I can see the importance of all the twists, turns, and missteps.
But I do wish I had some more help along the way.
Those sidesteps made me who I am today, I’m not dismissing the power of a mistake. However, with the benefit of some guidance, the younger Jacqui may not have suffered so many sprained ankles, blistered heels, or stones in her shoes while treading her path.
As a coach, I’ve learned how to guide others to find their answers by listening to their inner voice.
Importantly, I’ve also learned that taking one step forward is more empowering than setting audacious, and often unrealistic, goals.
Ways We Can Work Together
Have you lost sight of why you’re doing what you’re doing? Are you at a crossroads and uncertain of where you’re heading? Do you feel like you’re failing at balancing a successful career and being true to yourself?
I work with women who want to redefine success so they feel true to themselves.
Are you at a crossroads and uncertain of where you’re heading? Are you trying to reconcile being successful at your various roles in life with staying true to yourself?
Because this means different things to different women, my individualised coaching services are tailored to your specific needs. I am a compassionate but challenging partner who invests in your success. I will help you gain clarity about the path you wish to tread and support your progress towards your goals.
Is your life too busy to fit in face to face coaching? What if you could access a coach as, and when, it suits you?
I created my self coaching journal with you in mind. It’s designed to help you define what success means to you and to guide you to attain that success. The journal uses a unique process developed coach, consultant, and mentor. It’s me in a beautiful, hand bound journal and comes with e-mail support.
Would you like an engaging and dynamic speaker for your next event? Do you want to discover simple steps every woman can take to advance gender equity – and create success in their own terms?
My presentations will leave you with a fresh perspective on gender equity, and what it means to be a successful woman. You’ll also be empowered to take immediate action in your own life, and to help others do the same.
Do you have some questions? If you’d like the chance to spend 20 minutes with me online or over the phone, you can request a time to do just that. I’ll happily answer your questions, and we’ll go from there.
