“I began working with Jazka in 2012 when she was hired to design and deliver the first Making Every Contact Count training programme for the Voluntary and Community Sector in England. She has since designed and delivered Behaviour Change training for support staff in alcohol reduction, physical activity, brief advice, healthy eating and coaching through change. We still commission Jazka to write and deliver training courses and hire her as a consultant to help us with impact evaluation, reports and partnership working. We are always impressed that she is able to predict funding requirements, which keeps our workforce and partners across Sussex ahead of the competition. I would highly recommend Jazka’s training courses for their value, relevance, creativity and practice-based learning. An engaging, intelligent trainer with consistently excellent feedback. Jazka is able to take difficult concepts and share these with staff in a way that keeps them engaged and informed, but also stimulated and entertained.”
“Jazka has been key to the successful development of our Managers at Rakuten Marketing Europe over the past 18 months. She has coached Managers through organisational change, shifting roles, building resilience and developing enhanced communication. The Analysis Reports we have received from Free Range Professionals have helped us measure the impact of coaching on our managers’ performance. Furthermore, her support has made a significant difference in manager performance and retention. The only challenge is managing the waiting list of Managers wanting to work with her!”
“Jazka listened to the description of our project, researched the background material and quickly understood it so well. She was able to design a training course which completely delivered on our objectives, even in areas where we were unable to articulate exactly what we needed. Jazka had the ability to synthesize our aims and use them to creatively deliver training to young volunteers which totally engaged them for a full day. As a trainer that can be a massive challenge but the novel exercises, opportunities for feedback and learning-checking, as well as the stimulating resources made the experience feel fresh. As a commissioner I felt valued and listened to, the training package produced was excellent and fulfilled our on-going needs. One of the most professional and reflective training providers I have had the pleasure to work with; invaluable to our newly created project. I really appreciate Jazka’s insight and intuitive style.”
“Some of the benefits of coaching for me are the chance to reflect and problem solve. Jazka is also really knowledgeable in people management and external to the organization which makes a real difference.”
“I do not like confrontation and the role-play really helped me plan how I am going to speak to x. I would have never planned this out on my own. I really need to start planning what I am going to say before meetings as this is really useful.”
“I just go about my daily work not thinking and come and talk to you every few weeks and you ask me lots of questions that make me reflect. I’ve now found myself thinking about things differently during my working week.”
“I have become more aware of myself as a manager since taking part in coaching sessions.”
“I have been waking up most mornings this week thinking about how I am going to handle this situation and our coaching discussion today has helped me formulate a plan.”
“I didn’t realize how much there was to learn in managing teams. Thank you, you’ve been really helpful.”
