Janice coaches and delivers workshops at all levels within organizations to team leaders, middle managers, junior staff and aspiring leaders/managers.
Past and present clients include: the BBC, the London School of Economics, British Airways, the Learning and Skills Improvement Service and Brighton and Hove city council. A very recent client is Croydon University Hospital.

Blue Sky can support organizations that are:

  • Undergoing change
  • Looking for staff to become more resourceful
  • Seeking greater ‘employee engagement’
  • Keen to develop the talent they have on ‘their doorstep’
  • Actively developing their managers

Feedback after designing and delivering a ‘Preparing for an Assessment Centre’ day to group of senior and middle managers:

It was a very difficult time for the participants because they have to apply this week for the reduced number of head of department posts. I don’t think it was an easy atmosphere for Janice to work in but I have had really positive and appreciative feedback about her facilitation.

Head of Learning and Development

Workshops include:

  • Career Management Workshop
    Maintaining energy and focus in tough times
    Team  Building with Chocolate
    RenewYou – personal development
    Identifying and Working to your strengths
    Managing change through the Energy Investment Model

Workshops are either half or one day in length and are delivered on site, to minimise travel costs and times to participants.

A selection of other comments from participants:

  • Brilliant – really excellent day
  • Level of interaction was great, also learnt a few things, which is always good
  • Great trainer
  • Janice – very approachable and clear delivery
  • Both trainers were really supportive and positive and tailored things to our individual needs, which helped us get the very most out of the day
  • Helpful and well structured, with a willingness to address individual concerns as they arose. Will definitely recommend this course to others.
  • Excellent, I felt that every member of the group received a high level of attention relating to their specific needs.

Bespoke coaching programmes

Janice also provides coaching within organisations and sessions are generally delivered in person on site but other arrangements can be made if the individual prefers a different location.

Each series of sessions are especially tailored to meet the needs of the individual and combine coaching, psychometric questionnaires and self assessment surveys.

Janice coaches individuals through a range of work and career issues such as:

  • Career change
  • Preparing for an interview
  • Coping with redundancy and outplacement
  • Learning to thrive in challenging and difficult times
  • Work life balance
  • Managing difficult colleagues/staff

Further details are available on request.

Feedback after designing and delivering a ‘Maintaining Energy and Focus’ session:

Thank you for a well presented session. I found the core ideas you were presenting very clear and easy to assimilate. I also enjoyed your relaxed and focused approach which put everyone at ease. This definitely added participation, communication and frank debate from all.
