What Jane’s clients have to say:

Jane Gaynor provided me with the resources necessary to take a proper assessment of my family, business, personal, spiritual, physical fitness, short term and long term goals.  Jane held me accountable for taking action on the items that I said were of importance to me for my growth and development. Although I am a driven person with an 'A' type personality, Jane was able to help me laser focus on a few things that were hindering me from being at optimal performance.  If you are interested in maximizing your potential while unleashing your inner passion Coach J is an absolute must.

I once heard a quote at a seminar I attended, it was, "Invest in yourself and your business will thank you for it."  After working with Jane, I believe this quote to be absolute truth. I am in a completely different space, both personally and professionally since I've been working with her.  Her perspective was invaluable as she was able to help me identify my "blind spots". These blind spots were keeping me from progressing to my desired level of performance. The best gift she gave to me was to help me truly understand my own value.  Once I understood this, I was able to multiply my earnings. I could not have done this without her expertise and world class perspective. Thank you Jane!!

I was fortunate to have Jane as both a mentor and then a professional coach. Jane was instrumental in helping me develop my personal vision, create an actionable plan, and drive solid results in my career. Her inherent empathy and motivating attitude, along with excellent listening skills, sensitivity and overall positivity provided me with the platform to increase my confidence and deliver to my true potential.

I started working with Jane after receiving a promotion at work. I was worried there was an expectation that I had to change who I was in order to fit into this new role. Jane helped me discover that I could be successful by leading through my authentic self. I’ve learned how to carry my values into all that I do - both personally and professionally - and that has made me a much happier person. The answers to my dilemmas are within me and Jane provided me with a road map to find them.

I have taken away so much from Jane’s coaching and I am grateful for her knowledge, optimism and support. Jane is incredibly intuitive and asks great questions that allow me to think and reflect. With her help, I was able to ‘see through the fog’ and take a look at what I personally value, and incorporate that into my everyday life - professionally and personally. With this clarity, I was able to make significant shifts and feel confident in the impact today and in the future.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Jane in a variety of settings including workshops she’s led, small group settings she’s facilitated, and one-on-one coaching. The environment Jane creates is always fun, safe, and thought provoking. I always feel supported by her which allows me to be open and honest, enabling insightful conversations. Jane always encourages me to be my authentic self, and she creates an environment where I’m comfortable doing that. I wouldn’t hesitate to attend another session Jane leads.

I have never had a feedback/coaching session like this.  She really helped me look at areas of focus for myself. She helped me come up with areas of improvement and related her own work experience.  She was highly credible. I actually felt like she cared to help me.

Jane was an absolute charm to meet.  She offered great insight and made many connections for me.  It was a very positive experience and one that actually made me make a few personal realizations about how I avoid conflict and why.  Fantastic experience. I would choose Jane as my coach anytime.

The Benefits of Coaching

 What is Coaching? 

Coaching is a strategic partnership between coach and coachee, designed to empower the individual to maximize their potential and achieve success. Coaching provides support, structure and objective feedback.  The responsibility of the coach is to be a guide for their client - to listen, support and enable.

 Why Coaching Works 

The Coach is a facilitator of discovery, an enabler of learning and a cheerleader for your success!  A coach holds the space of possibility and believes the coachee to be capable. The coachee accepts personal accountability for their choices and takes action in making the shifts needed.

 Coaching has the power to deliver great results. This is based on three factors:​
