It is my genuine pleasure to recommend Janet Sernack’s ‘Coaching for Innovation’ program. I completed the program in early 2017 and I found it robust, inspiring, and intensely practical. Janet is a dedicated teacher and coach who took pains to create a safe yet challenging learning environment for this virtual course. She is also a marvellous role model for risk-taking and continuous learning.”
