Jerry brings to Élan over 35 years of developing people in all walks of life and is a highly experienced coach and supervisor. Jerry believes that any organisation is only as good as the commitment it makes to its people’s development.
Jerry’s approach is to work with the grain of the person he is coaching and has found that the first step in personal and professional development is to increase his clients’ self-awareness and confidence. As a starting point Jerry often uses personality type psychometrics; helping people see and appreciate themselves more clearly. Thoughtful, wise and accepting, Jerry creates the space for honest transformational conversations in which he is able to offer considered feedback as well as to listen without judgement. He enables clients to have the conversations they might otherwise avoid and to build on their strengths in a clear-sighted and pragmatic way.
Jerry is also a poet, finding his inspiration in times of solitude and the flow of the natural world.
