"The Core Coach Training at the Gardner Institute is everything you need to become an effective coach. It is a challenging, interactive, and informative course that guarantees mastery of the essential skills of coaching. In this course, you will learn and practice the core competencies that make coaching a unique system of discovery and growth for clients, and along the way, you will experience dramatic growth yourself as a professional coach. The course provides the opportunity for you to meet and network with others in the field and to create dynamic alliances that will serve you throughout your professional career. I recommend this course for anyone who wants to coach clients for success and for anyone who wants to be a successful coach."

"Through the Mindset for Success program and coaching with Jayne, I was able to identify the limiting beliefs hindering me from reaching my full potential. Better than any training program or business book, the Mindset for Success program forces you to focus on what matters most...what you silently tell yourself every day. We are only limited by the invisible boundaries and rules that we place on ourselves. This program helps you identify those beliefs and rewire your mind to get different results. Mindset is a very effective program that creates tangible results for anyone willing to put in the honest effort.
I started the program focusing on the daily journaling to uncover my own limiting beliefs and did the hard work to rewire how I viewed myself and the world around me. I've seen not only a significant improvement at work with regards to confidence, but also a rewarding shift in my job satisfaction, and overall personal fulfillment. This program is powerful, because it does much more than create awareness of why you are who you are. This program facilitates making permanent changes to overcome the limiting beliefs you have been operating by for most of your life.

"The greatest aspect of working through the Mindset dialogues is that it has truly transformed who I am as an individual. When I first began working with Dr. Gardner, she challenged me by stating that some of the best executives continually reflect on who they are personally and through this self-analysis their leadership continually evolves and improves. Through the dialogues I have come to recognize what inhibits me as an individual and what I need to do to overcome these obstacles. The growth through this process has been phenomenal and I am very pleased that I agreed to go through the dialogues."
