Julie worked with my leadership team for six months, both individually coaching members and as a team, assessing our strengths and tightening our team operations. Julie made a positive difference to our organisation and client relationships, she is discrete and highly perceptive! Choosing to work with Woodglade Consulting was a good move.
"I have been fortunate to work with Julie in a number of capacities over the past 10 years. Julie knows how to get the best from people ! This ability has come from a combination of her emotional intelligence , her experience as an effective teacher , leader , coach and consultant. Her practical approach to all aspects of improvement helps to demystify things for colleagues opening up the doors for higher levels of performance. She epitimisies everything that a "growth mindset" would advocate -inspiring them to achieve and become high performing individuals .
Julie's knowledge and understanding of leadership has been achieved from her ongoing research and studies of leadership backed up by her extensive practice in the field .Put simply Julie is relentless in her pursuit to get the very best for and from every person she supports . Furthermore she get results!
I would highly recommend Julie. "

"I have worked with Julie professionally for over 15 years. She has an enormous capacity for recognising the talents in others that they may have lost sight of themselves. She knows exactly how to bring out the best in people and makes the whole process appear painless, effortless and seamless. Over the years, I have had many occasions to ask her to work with colleagues and team members in order to develop, improve and extend their skill sets.
Julie is an excellent coach and one of the most efficient and focused senior managers that I have encountered but she combines this with humanity, a good sense of humour and a real sense of vision.
She has good inter-personal skills and is very skilled indeed at supporting staff. She is highly organised and efficient and has the capacity to think strategically. She played a major part in reinvigorating staff who had “lost their way” and had become somewhat disillusioned. Her organisation and delivery of training is outstanding. She is meticulously organised; she plans carefully and learns quickly from experience. She knows how to make delegation work and does so very effectively. Her inter-personal skills are a great strength: she had very good and productive relationships with all colleagues. She has total integrity, is very professional and works very hard. She quickly gains the confidence of both professionals and non professionals.
National Challenge & School Improvement Adviser
Former secondary head teacher in two schools
I was recently appointed Team Leader overseeing a hectic call centre team of ten people. I’d never had a leadership role before and had a few doubts around how to motivate and manage people. Julie coached me through my first six months in the role and gave me all the confidence and tools I needed to succeed.
Sales Team Leader
Julie delivered a number of training and coaching sessions for me personally in my development as a middle leader. In the three years of line management I developed from a new middle leader at a new school to a senior middle manager who was regarded as an example of exemplary practice across the school.
"Julie managed a team of managers that I did some speaking/training with. In what was a very challenging working arena she had managed to maintain morale and ran a team that was a delight to work with and alongside."
