Jane Storer

As an executive coach, Jane works with Directors, team leaders, managers and senior teams from a variety of industries. In her individual coaching, her focus is on supporting her clients in developing their leadership style and skills, maximising their personal strengths and accelerating performance in high-pressure roles. As a team coach, Jane is experienced in improving team effectiveness, addressing the challenging dynamics of global teams and supporting strategic change initiatives.

Coaching Style

Raising self-awareness and understanding personal impact are the starting point for Jane's coaching approach. Clearly defining goals, being prepared to challenge what is going on beneath the surface and a focus on achieving sustainable change make for a results-driven coaching programme. Jane aims to create a safe yet stimulating coaching relationship in which her clients can unlock incredible amounts of potential and confidence.

Maternity Coaching

Jane joined the team at Executive Coaching Consultancy in 2009 and works primarily with Directors before, during and after their maternity leave. Having had personal experience of balancing the role of mother to two children with working full-time as a Director gives Jane a valuable insight into the challenges faced by her highly successful, career-oriented clients during this period of transition.

Background

In a career spanning more than twenty years in the Arcadia Group and House of Fraser, Jane has a proven track record in the development and implementation of strategies in a highly competitive environment. As a Buying and Merchandising Director for nine years, she was responsible for a large team and a multi-million pound budget. Building a team of highly-motivated, loyal and well-respected individuals gave her immense satisfaction during her time in that role, and the lessons she learned provide a useful reference point in her coaching. Her business experience gives Jane a level of insight and gravitas that her senior clients value.
