Generate the Best In You And Others

You enjoy connecting with others in conversations at work or at home and consider yourself a good listener. Yet you find yourself distracted, uncomfortable with silence, rushing to assumptions, and easy to interrupt. Are you really practicing listening? 

Imagine a culture where you felt listened to, free from judgment, every day enabling you to feel safe, calm, respected, and appreciated? Imagine having deeper connections, improved communication, and stronger relationships? This is the world I imagine and we can all generate that through our capacity and capability to listen first.

When two or more human beings choose to listen in equal turns, we deepen our relationship, we generate possibilities that we thought impossible and we accomplish results unlike before. When we listen, we show how much we care. When people feel cared for, they contribute the best of themselves. 



Before the program, I did not give my full attention and allowed myself to be distracted regularly, especially with technology. It’s been a great experience because I’ve been able to remove distractions more often and give my full attention more consistently. My improvements include more empathy, greater understanding, and more acceptance.


      I would rush to join in the conversation with someone as I was keen to help or to move the discussion along. I have learned the negative impact interruptions have both physically and psychologically. As a result of the program, I’m feeling calmer, more relaxed, and capable of giving the listener space to think.

      I often didn’t listen to my own inner wisdom or guidance. I have learned to grant myself space to think and reflect. It feels liberating to consider listening as an art and a gift rather than an activity.

      I thought I was a pretty good listener, but this was not something I did well consistently. So I wanted to learn more. The value I received from the Listening to Liberate program was a much greater awareness and appreciation for the power of generative listening in liberating the mind of another. I now feel more capable at intentionally listening with empathy and curiosity – without distraction. I’m learning more about myself and others thanks to deeper connections. Plus I’m creating more trust and building stronger relationships through generative listening.


If you want to enhance your communication skills, deepen your relationships, have a positive impact on those around you, generate more trust, and feel calmer and more connected, then this app is designed for you!

Applying the skills from this program will enhance your interactions with others, enabling you to have conversations you never thought you would!

Hi, I’m Jane. I’m an executive coach, author, and speaker on the art and skills of Listening and Compassionate Leadership.

I believe that human beings are intelligent, resourceful and have the capacity to accomplish what we set out to in the presence of being listened to. I see the goodness in others and love to help them find their own resourcefulness to be the best of themselves and the leader within.

I imagine a world where we listen first enabling others to step up to and into their best selves. I believe that to listen is to care, to add value, to inspire, a skill worth mastering. To listen generatively is to liberate the mind rather than direct the mind.


I am a Master Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation, a Faculty member of Time to Think, an ambassador for Truly Human Leadership, a Mum of two grown-up girls. I am an author – Are you Listening or Just Waiting to Speak. I am a speaker on Why Listening is critical in Life and in Business and on Compassionate Leadership.

I have 30 years of experience in people-focused roles in professional and financial services.

I listen, free of judgment and interruption. I practice what I teach, coach, and mentor others. I work with corporate clients, small businesses, and in the community – teaching and coaching in leadership and listening.

I put my clients/delegates first. I consider their needs, their wants and create a safe environment for them to be themselves, rather than someone they think I want them to be.

You matter. I seek to enable you to discover more for yourself and about yourself to accomplish what you set out to. I communicate clearly, inspire others to be themselves, and provide a mindset, a skillset, and a way of being that impacts your life and the life of others for the good of all.


5 minutes invested in mastering the skill of generative listening consistently over time will produce exponential returns for you – guaranteed!
