Hi! I’m Jacqui

thumbnail_image0.jpeg

A New Yorker from an immigrant family, it was ingrained in me that explosive growth happens when you step into the discomfort, work hard and risk failure.

 

What forced my parents and grandparents to leave everything and start anew instilled a determined spirit in me.  I learned to thrive on the thrill of a challenge and as a child I used sociodramatic play to solve problems.   As I got older, I maintained my love for play and apply deep curiosity and creativity in everything I do.

 

Throughout my career I have applied these skills and beliefs to help individuals, teams and organisations get comfortable taking relational risks and to be honest with themselves to create the value they seek.

 

I bring with me over 15 years of coaching, consulting and socratic advisory in Financial Services, underpinned by a number of accreditations:

 

  • Executive Coach - Senior Practitioner - (EMCC) European Mentoring & Coaching Council

  • Analytic-Network Coach - International Coach Federation (ICF) 

  • Systemic Team Coach (AoEC) 

  • BA Psychology & Pre-Med - Emory University

  • MSc Organisational and Social Psychology (cum laude) London school of Economics

  • Post-graduate certificate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy - Middlesex University

 

I have lived, worked and trained across the US, UK, Europe, Southern Africa and Australia.

 

When I’m not working, I chase the sunshine, geek out on podcasts, enjoy HIIT and yoga and playing with my two young children.

Principles underpinning my work 

Be Clear 

To me, too much is left to assumption and interpretation.  I believe in saying it as it is, always linking back to purpose. Clarity of purpose and objectives are hygiene for high performance. Everyone around you also needs to coalesce around these and see how they can co-own the path to success.
 

Be Centred

Adapting to rapidly changing conditions requires people in organisations to continuously learn from experience and to cohere in multidisciplinary diverse teams;  Self-awareness and being centred is absolutely critical to creating the openness and curiosity needed to learn and pivot quickly.

Be Real

Organisations exist in increasingly volatile, non-linear and unpredictable environments.  We need to be considered in creating the  conditions to fuel progress in this context. Being real is who I am and how I help you to create these conditions.

Be Systemic

Organisations are shaped by both social and technical forces; Leaning too heavily on one risks solving for the wrong problems. We work at both levels.
