Jenny Dixon – Performance Management & Training Consultant
Jenny started her first career as an officer in the British army after graduating from Sheffield University and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. Her military service gave her a sound foundation in leadership, administration, training and management. Her final posting (an operational tour working as a liaison Officer to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Bosnia) fully tested all of these skills plus diplomacy, co-ordination & tenacity and culminated in her being awarded a Queen’s Commendation for Valuable Service. Embarking on a second career in her early 30′s Jenny applied her management and administrative experience in both the public and private sectors. She has worked as a business, facilities and project manager and has been responsible for reviewing performance, developing and improving service delivery and management methods across a multi-million pound organisation. As a trainer, she has developed and delivered a variety of training modules to junior and middle managers including leadership, communications, administration and management of both resources and people. A believer that a picture really is worth a thousand words, Jenny is a trained graphic facilitator and graphic recorder and actively uses visualisation techniques in her work.
Jenny’s expertise ranges from pinpointing critical behaviours for top performance to highlighting key motivators and overcoming barriers to achieving goals. She helps leaders and managers at both the strategic and practical level – identifying and facilitating the steps necessary for the leader, their team, and their organisation to develop. As a consultant, she has been particularly successful working with individuals & organisations and across partnerships improving and integrating their performance delivery, monitoring and management systems.
She is passionate about results and develops tailor-made programmes for all her clients that suit their needs to achieve amazing goals. As an NLP Master Practitioner, she is assertive, encouraging, gentle, focused, and not afraid to take risks and experiment. Jenny is uncompromising in the standards she sets herself and exacting in the results she demands for her clients, not afraid of working hard she believes that if something is worth having it is worth working for.
