About Me

headshot@3x, find the best way of being
Looking for the angel or the superhero? Find it within.

I believe that every person, team, organisation and situation has a perfect way of functioning. This might not be true in practice but let’s work as if it is. Let’s try to find the best way of being.

Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it. I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.

Michelangelo

My role is to help people fly; to set the angel free. I have years of HR and OD experience and roles in a variety of management positions in various sectors. Therefore I bring a range of lessons learned (and perspectives gained) to any project.

Having toured Europe and the Middle East for three years as a dancer, I came home to England needing a job; any job. Hence, I walked into Selfridges in Oxford Street and then I started the following week on a three month Christmas contract. I left seven years later, having worked my way up the store, both literally and figuratively. When I found myself in the Training Team, back then in 1992, I knew I had found a world that would satisfy me for the rest of my life.

What Interests Janet?

What interests me most is what makes people tick in the way that they do. How can one person be assertive and another aggressive in the same situation? Why is one person able to be creative and another not so?Why is it that one person can stand on stage in front of 200 people and present with confidence, whereas another person cringes at having to present to four people sitting around a table. How can the same life experience affect people in such different ways?

And this interest fuels my work and my curiosity.  What I do, you can find out about here. How my slightly eccentric brain chews over things you can find here.
