I believe that we find some of our greatest meaning and purpose through our work, and that cultivating an energised and happy workforce is critical if an organisation is to thrive. Despite decades of trying to separate who we are at home and at work, or in trying not to feel our feelings, we are feeling beings, and developing the emotional intelligence of staff and leaders is what I do.
Welcome! I'm Jacqui Sjenitzer ('shane-itzer'). I have a Masters degree in Occupational Psychology and have trained with The Coaches Training Institute and The Daring Way™ leadership team.
I'm a coach, psychologist, facilitator and trainer, and the main purpose my work serves is in creating spaces for courageous conversations that transform the way things are, for individuals, for teams in organisations, for coaches.
My masters-level academic research focussed on the impact of the strengths of courage, authenticity, gratitude and resiliency on wellbeing in the workplace.
I've been a people development specialist for over 20 years, with a robust background in learning and development, facilitating change for people in organisations, and managing and delivering the learning and development function. I'm fascinated by, and addicted to, finding out as many ways as possible that we can feel energised and alive, and happy and thriving at work.
Whilst I like a lot of fun, I’m serious about integrity, and adhere to the ICF (International Coaching Federation) ethics. I'm fully insured.
