Nancy provides great insight and perspective to reframe mindsets- which has had a significant impact on how I engage in certain interactions.
“Just do it. Trust the process. For me it has been a very fulfilling journey.”
I came to Nancy with two areas of focus: confidence as a leader & building strong relationships with my peers. During the course of the programme I was able to make strides in both areas. I learned what I want & what I need to be successful in my role… I was able to get buy-in to make team structure changes that will better serve my team, our business, & my own career. Nancy's approach to building up one's "sphere of influence" helped me create lasting bonds with my peers. I've been able to lean on those peers to make changes to improve cross-functional planning, communication, & collaboration. Nancy's guidance during our sessions & the activities in between sessions helped me make measurable progress on my goals… I'm grateful to have started my journey into leadership with Nancy alongside me.
I sincerely and emphatically recommend Nancy. I feel more confident in my leadership abilities and have picked up a number of positive habits along the way, thanks to my interactions with Nancy. There is absolutely no doubt that she is a talented and astute businesswoman, but what I liked most of all is her sincere and realistic approach. Nancy doesn't talk in corporate phrases and provide canned responses, but rather employs an individualized, thoughtful approach to helping each one of her clients in a private setting, where they can feel comfortable to speak candidly on where they want to grow. I have gained more from Nancy's program than any other I've participated in over my career, bar none. If you want guidance with long term impact, go with Nancy John & Seed Leadership. Highly recommend.
After a recent promotion into a product leadership position, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Nancy through the Seed Leadership coaching program. Over the course of the program, we worked on a number of activities designed to build stronger relationships and improve team performance through coaching and feedback. I enjoyed the program's personalized approach, which focused on building an action plan specific to my objectives. The program provided great insight into how the behaviors and approaches that have guided my product management career could be adapted to a leadership role.
Nancy is an excellent coach and I highly recommend Seed Leadership to anyone looking for a personalized, one-on-one coaching program to strengthen their leadership skills.
Through the sessions I have been able to make good progress… especially related to dealing with conflicts and difficult personalities as well as executive presence…. I faced some people related challenges at work, and Nancy was very helpful to think-through and brainstorm on potential options to deal with challenge at hand. Of many of Nancy’s traits, one specific one I want to call out is her ability to ask thought provoking questions with certain level of candor that will push the individuals to deeply reflect and identify the crux of the issues they are grappling with. My advice to anyone wanting to up-level their leadership toolbox and to work on your development areas in a risk free environment, engaging with Seed Leadership / Nancy is a great investment in yourself that will pay great dividends for you in your career journey.
I'm so grateful to have had an opportunity to work with Nancy when I was at an important crossroad in life a few months ago. I was juggling through many professional and personal options, and was in dire need for more clarity in life and effective decision making… Nancy is super personable and our initial conversation just clicked… I learned to develop new perspectives when approaching ambiguous problems and started to discover a pattern of how I make decisions myself. If anything, awareness is the first step to understanding what needs to be changed for the better. This is just one example of many critical lessons I took away from working with Nancy! More importantly, this marks the beginning for an accelerated journey of my continuous personal growth thanks to her coaching.
I'm so thankful to have an opportunity to work with Nancy on her 90 day leadership program... Over these 90 days, I learned to take advantage of my strengths and work on the opportunities identified. There was significant improvement in my communication and decision making. This program boosted my confidence allowing me to take on greater responsibilities. Even though there is structure to this course, at the end of the day it depends on how you want to drive it to help you get better. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking for professional growth.
I am so much more confident since working with Nancy. Working with Nancy is about questions and the language you use... In terms of my attitude, in terms of my language, I have come to better understand how I can improve, and I am improving because the feedback I've been getting has shown that I am improving. I'm very, very proud about that. And that in itself has started building my self confidence... What you achieve is not just for yourself. those around you will be impacted by just the benefits you've got from being in the Seed Leadership program.
Nancy is very dedicated, gives our conversations enough time to dig into, follows up, and caters her approach to my needs. The assigned activities pack a punch! They made me uncover what works for me and what doesn’t. It allowed me to experiment, make little tweaks that I may have been too scared to try on my own… learning about my leadership strengths and weaknesses in this program has been a foundational piece that will continue to yield benefits long after the program ends.
Nancy has helped me greatly improve my emotional intelligence, allowing me to communicate and influence at a much higher level. My interactions with colleagues and partners are much more results-oriented and efficient. This in turn has raised my confidence level, so I gain trust and communicate much more persuasively. I highly recommend Nancy as her coaching has made a big difference for me.
I was lucky enough to take part in the Seed Leadership program as part of my personal development plan… From the moment I met with Nancy, I was immediately put at ease. Nancy is welcoming, insightful and authentic. The one-on-one sessions that I was originally a little apprehensive of, were suddenly like chatting with a friend. This course was unlike any other that I’ve been on. The fact that it’s personalised and tailored to you as an individual is more valuable than anything else. I’m very grateful to Nancy for all her help and guidance in setting me up on my leadership journey.
