Jon’s aim is to create an environment where individuals and teams can progress through having a clarity of focus, a sense of identity, purpose and a passion for what they do.
“It always amazes me to see what people are capable of achieving, that they didn’t know they could do themselves, given the right environment and self-belief.” JW
His aspiration is to continue to challenge and support people in identifying and achieving their true potential beyond what they thought they were capable of, and in turn share their energy, enthusiasm and drive with their colleagues and provide a positive contribution to the organisation they are involved with.

Areas of coaching I deal with
Fees will be discussed following an exploratory meeting to clarify what specific coaching is required, the number of sessions and where the coaching is to take place.
I am available in the evenings during the week and Saturday mornings.
It is important that Jon meets with the person or has a Skype or telephone conversation, before any coaching starts to clarify what outcomes are expected and for the coachee to feel that they are comfortable being coached by Jon.
