Jennifer Potter is a highly experienced coach, consultant, mentor and wellness expert, with a track record of delivering exceptional results both in house and as a consultant.
Jennifer is an inspiring, experienced and accomplished organisational and leadership development practitioner. Her work enables individuals and organisations to see and commit to the bigger picture, as well as gain clarity on both the blocks and the dots that need to be given attention and perhaps joined. She is skilled at asking the right questions and challenging assumptions for the greater good.
Before establishing herself as a successful independent consultant, Jennifer worked as a senior leader in a FTSE 100 company for more than 15 years. Her work spans across business planning, marketing strategy, employee engagement, cultural change and internal communication. Jennifer has a strong empathy for the demands of running organisations in today’s challenging environment and the importance of people and team dynamics in that success.
She thrives on taking teams on a journey to high performance.
Jennifer works with individuals and senior teams, to enable both their development and impact as leaders, as well as the strategic direction of the organisation. She believes that a strong clarity of vision and purpose, as well as a willingness to explore individual questions and issues, together with relationships with others, is as crucial for team performance as is a willingness to acknowledge what needs to change. She has worked as a consultant with organisations of all sizes, from start ups and charities like The Watermill Theatre to large corporates such as ASDA, BT and Sainsbury’s as well as working with medium sized digital and creative agencies.
In addition to her development and coaching work, she is jointly responsible for holding and running the Resilience and Wellbeing Network at Oasis. A members network that comes together to share best practise and future thinking about what it takes to create places to work where employees can reach their full potential without burning out.
As a coach you will find Jennifer challenging, playful, insightful and frank. Jennifer holds an awareness of how everything is connected and applies a whole person approach to her work with people. She has a deep empathy for the different stages of life and how systems can be as much of a challenge as the people within them.
As well as holding two degrees (one in Business Strategy and Marketing and the other in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture), and two diplomas, she is NLP qualified, DiSC certified and a seasoned Action Learning Facilitator.
Jennifer is an experienced consultant with a sharp mind and a big heart. She brings theory, experience and a passion for continuous learning both of herself and within the dynamic of her clients.
She is author of Stronger, Braver, Wiser which was published in 2018, is an ambassador for IDAS charity and also works collaboratively with the not for profit On Road Media, and holds a monthly peer group to support the wellbeing of poverty activists.
Outside of work you will find her in nature walking with her dog Murphy, researching wellbeing trends, redesigning her house, or enjoying food and culture with friends.
