Jan’s commitment to understanding our business, meant she was able to deliver tangible and relevant actions. Many of the team have adopted these actions to managing their work performance and wellbeing.  Several of our managers have gone on to private consultation with Jan, as they continue to explore the very real symbiotic relationship between performance and wellbeing.

“As a pharmaceutical industry employee who has participated in many workshops over the years, I have no hesitation in providing a personal recommendation for Jan McLeod to those looking for an engaging, knowledgeable and empathetic facilitator. Jan took the time to understand the needs of our leadership team, asked the right questions and provided helpful insights during the preparation for our workshops. Collectively, we had very positive feedback from those who participated in Jan’s workshops.”

Estee Lauder

  • Magda Lategan – HR Director, Estee Lauder
  • “Jan is insightful, realistic with her approach to health, passionate about what she does with an infectious, fun personality”

“Jan joined as at a leadership program earlier this year as a key note speaker, and apart from keeping the room fully engaged, she had us all go away with knowledge and skills to grow mentally, physically and spiritually. She touched on nutrition in a way that we all could understand – identifying the positives and negatives in what we are eating, the importance of rest and relaxation, the benefits of exercise and ways to nourish the body that we so often neglect. Jan also took us through Meditation sessions at the end of what were quite long and mentally tiring days. The group all found Jan’s calming approach to this a fantastic way to wind down and relax, also leaving us all with tips and ways to meditate or relax when we are either time poor, or have limited space. Jan was not only insightful and realistic with her approach to health, but passionate about what she does with an infectious, fun personality.”

Quay Consulting

  • Rod Adams, Director Quay Consulting.
  • “An excellent program delivering tangible results.”

We engaged Jan and her company to work with one of our project teams that was under considerable stress. We take our people care seriously and could see that the strains of the project were not just affecting the project outcomes but also the daily lives of the team. Jan’s Resilience by Design program was a revelation. The focus on building resilience within the team – physically, emotionally and mentally was just what we needed at that point in time. Jan’s team worked with us as a group and also individually to tailor suggested changes to diet, lifestyle and working practices to make the team more resilient and thus more productive and happy.

Some of the team continued to consult Jan once the initial engagement was concluded and the feedback and end results were exceptional. I would not hesitate to recommend Jan, her company and this program if you want to improve your teams individual and collective wellbeing and their ability to produce quality outcomes under the daily stresses of working life.”
