“It truly is lonely at the top. Even though I have been a school superintendent for seventeen years I still face many new challenges that have no clear answers. The problems related to the job can and do pile up and become overwhelming. I find it invaluable to have a leadership coach like Janice to talk with on a regular basis. Our discussions help me sort out issues and get clarity on what to do next. The coaching I get is better than talking to friends or fellow superintendents who sometime sympathize rather than give me honest answers. From Janice I get feedback that oftentimes charts a clear path on exactly what I need to do to next to clear up the issues I am facing.”

“My work with Janice has transformed me both on a personal level and professional level. I credit her for helping me to reach my leadership goals and find a depth of courage and confidence that I NEVER would have gained had it not been for her outstanding coaching abilities. I am no longer the sheepish person who followed the rules and was always quiet and obedient. I am now unafraid of new situations and have the confidence to face challenges in a fearless manner. I speak my truth and feel empowered. I am grateful to have Janice in my life.”

“The job of school administration is one of great stress so it was so helpful for Ms. McDermott to provide our leaders with coaching to relieve some of it. One of the greatest challenges of school administration is also life balance. Her leadership coaching helped our leaders achieve a better balance in their lives. School administration is also about making a series of rapid fire decisions from the mundane to the life saving; leadership coaching helped our leaders make those decisions and live peaceably with them. Even the more challenging decisions were more manageable when our leaders had leadership coaching.”

“Janice has led me to work to see any situation through the eyes of the person involved before making any critical decision. This has led me to seek to understand before being understood. It has been a valuable tool for me becoming a more effective leader.”

“As an executive district administrator of a school district the day to day challenges of “the work” can be overwhelming. The leadership coaching that Janice McDermott has provided to me over the last ten years has been invaluable. I look forward to our coaching sessions in which Ms McDermott provides the time and space for honest dialogue to determine actionable steps surrounding the issues and decisions that I face as leader. She supports me in taking courageous but compassionate actions each and every day. I attribute much of my success and growth as a leader to Janice McDermott as my leadership coach; I believe that leadership coaching has been the most important element in making the “big ideas” a reality.”
