Jenny Garrett Executive CoachOver the last 10 years, Jenny has coached and mentored formally and informally in various roles at the centre of organisational change. She has held senior marketing roles in organisations such as Schroders and Hamptons International, gaining considerable insight into organisational life from her experience of working in complex organisations, where lines of communication and accountability are ambiguous and pressure for results is paramount. In 2002 Jenny moved into the education sector at Ashridge Business School where she developed her passion for executive coaching.

She consults as strategic lead for the coaching portfolio of programmes within the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, as well as coaching senior leaders attending Lancaster University Management School Leadership Development programmes, senior leaders within the NHS and middle leaders attending a fast track management programme in the learning and skills sector. Jenny also enjoys working in the Arts sector and coaches fellows who receive bursaries from the Clore Leadership Foundation.

Jenny found that an increasing number of her clients were female breadwinners. Her book Rocking Your Role the ‘how to’ guide to success for female breadwinners, released 28th June, 2012  is based on interviews and her experience. See her blog and author website

Jenny’s approach is informed by a number of psychological approaches, such as: person centred , solutions focussed and psychodynamic. It is also informed by her experience of working in complex commercial organisations, art, the latest leadership thinking and her intuition. Jenny would describe her style as incisive, pragmatic, and supportive… her aim is to enable you to penetrate to the heart of the matter in order to move forward in a focused and expeditious way, that you will hopefully enjoy.
