About Jennifer McCanna PPC

Leadership & team coach, organisational development consultant

As an ICF qualified coach I am focused on getting transformational results for my clients and their organisations.  I do this through very quickly putting clients at ease, listening, facilitating thought provoking conversations and encouraging new ways of thinking.

I work across the public, not for profit and corporate sectors and have particular experience in coaching directors, heads of department and operational managers and preparing clients for senior management roles. I often use the Emotions and Behaviours at Work diagnostic to focus on competencies relevant to leadership, and to build clients’ emotional intelligence. Resilience and working effectively within a context of change often feature in my work with this client group.

I’m also an experienced and creative workshop designer and facilitator with experience of delivering a wide range of face to face and remote learning events on subjects including coaching skills for managers, navigating change, management and leadership development and performance management. As a team coach, I work with teams of leaders and managers, or operational teams, to help them focus on results by becoming a more highly effective team.

Jen is incredibly encouraging, dedicated and supportive. Our sessions are focused and each have clear objectives. She expertly explores all angles with me and enables me to uncover perspectives I may have missed. Jen is the first person I call on when I’m facing a significant challenge or change. She’s been there every step of my leadership journey and has really enable me to perform to the best of my ability. Jude Sadler, Head of Project Research and Information, Action Aid.

Jennifer balances perfectly a friendliness which puts everyone at ease with a focus on the task at hand which ensures things get done. Brendan Walsh, Managing Director, Bowland Solutions.
