I am a manager with 10 years experience trained in personal performance coaching who just happens to be passionate to learn, research & write about management, productivity & well-being. The same as you, soon enough into my role I’ve realised the training provided is not enough and does not give all the answers to situations I was being confronted with. Soon enough I realised I need to not only be great at prioritising and multitasking as the workload grew, I also needed coaching skills to not only communicate and feedback my team, but also put my points across with senior management. Dealing with difficult situations and people can be stressful and could affect you greatly unless you have tools and techniques to cope with stress in and out of work.
I am honoured to be The coaching Academy Life Coach Of The Year & Coaching For A Cause Awards 2016 nominee.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been involved in personal development for over 10 years now.
As I was developing my skills as a manager, I kept coming across different niches of coaching and NLP and the benefits that both industries can make on not only the work but also personal life. So between 2015 and 2016, I got trained in both. I am a certified Personal performance coach and Master in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. And in 2017, I’ve trained as a Cognitive Behavioural practitioner.
In past 3 years, I have coached a variety of clients with all different challenges, career transition, the progress in career, life/work balance, confidence, fear of failure, fear of success, overwhelm and so on. We all are thriving for huge feelings of satisfaction, happiness, fulfilment however to achieve that you need to be super clear on what those huge words mean to you. Once you are clear on that it is just a matter of adapting the right mindset, changing those limiting beliefs into empowering ones, gaining back your confidence and consistent action taking.
"Jana has helped me to maintain my focus on the actions to achieve my final goal. Through our sessions, she has helped me to identify some limiting beliefs and to clarify the way forward, available options and to become aware of the real magnitude of my tasks/actions." - Carmen Prieto
"Jana coached me around improving my confidence in my day to day job. Before I started working with Jana I had a lot of self-doubt and major lack of confidence I felt that I didn't deserve to have any form of success and that success was only for other people. Jana helped me to view and explore my limiting beliefs and where they originated. Through the coaching I received, I was able to really that those limiting beliefs that I have been holding on to are no longer true." - Anesu Byron Mukoi, UK
Over past year, I started focusing on managers who I work with daily, I started to notice that they are stressed out and overwhelmed by demands and ever growing workloads. Most managers don’t start with becoming manager in their mind, they are great at their job and because of that, they get promoted. However management is a whole new beast. It requires more skills that you needed to this point. It's about working with people, now you have a team you need to assess and develop, you’ve got to not only coordinate but motivate all different types of people with different motivators. You’ve got to have business and finance knowledge. You’ve got to understand costs attached to pretty much any decision you make and with that comes a lot of stress and uncertainty.
