What I Do

Hi, I'm Jackie Smith-Neville - leadership coach and consultant

I’ve been working in this field for over 20 years now and it never gets boring! 

I’ve been fortunate to work with some great clients and colleagues.  I’ve  built some fantastic relationships, and I’ve learnt so much along the way.

My background was in public service – having worked for both Central and Local Government in management and HR positions.  Since striking out on my own in 2001 I have worked with leaders and their teams across a wide range of both public organisations and private sector companies – I still get a buzz from meeting a new client for the first time.  My passion is for helping clients change mindsets, challenge themselves and others and move to greater levels of success and enjoyment.

Here’s a bit about the work I do:

Helping you achieve more as a leader

Leadership now is more demanding than ever.  We are working in global economies, experiencing faster changes and more sophisticated customer and workforce needs. 

But we also have so much more at our disposal – more access to tools and information, more options and opportunities to embrace new technologies and working practices.

I have a track record of successfully helping both individuals and leadership teams to consider the challenges and opportunities in their businesses and to become better, more responsive and responsible leaders.

Working with the Unique You

For me, coaching is all about helping individuals tap into their unique strengths.  The things that energise you and spur you on to achieve greater things in life.

It’s not about telling you what to do or how to do it (after all I’m not you!).  It’s all about helping you identify what matters and turning this into a “glittering goal” – something that’s worth working for. 

It’s about finding inspiration, some resilience and some alternative approaches.  Ultimately it’s about feeling better, being better and achieving success (in whatever form that takes for you)

Developing Great teams

Building great teams is the key to organizational success.

My team building programmes help teams to develop common purpose, appreciate individual style and contributions, foster tolerance whilst working towards excellence, communicate effectively and develop stronger bonds.

The programs can be facilitated business planning sessions or fun outdoor activities but they will all challenge mindsets and habits – asking “Is the best we can be?”, “What more is there?” and “How do we get that?”
