Dear ambitious career seeker,
I know your dreams are real, you crave to be in a job with purpose and enjoyment where you can influence and make a real impact on others with confidence.
You know you can do it, but your inner critic has been keeping you in a dark and unhappy place where your self- belief is rock bottom and your energy is low. You are out of alignment with your vision of who you want to be…you want to empower and be empowered…you want to speak out and be heard…you want to have a compelling identity, to be seen as a strong and fair person who works with integrity… and above all , you want to be known for your amazing interpersonal and managerial skills and act as an inspiration to others.
In short, you want nothing more than to be in control of your own destiny, have the tools and skills to get you there and an unfound courage that will get you back on track to MAKE THAT CAREER SHIFT WITH CONFIDENCE.
- An ambitious inspiring vision & plan for your future career and promotion
- Star quality confidence and feminine leadership for opportunity and progression
- A deeper understanding of your unique strengths, talents, inner motivations and personal goals and when to use them appropriately.
- Visibility to others as an authentic leader through the creation of a powerful brand/image
- Compelling communication and interpersonal skills to speak up and stand out.
- Understand own and others behavior with a positive energy, intuition, and self-belief
- Control and empowerment, with a strong self-belief and less procrastination, anxiety, and fear.
And most of all……
- You desire to accelerate your growth with confidence
The Problem is:
You’ve worked really hard to get the qualifications and entry into your first “proper” job. You may have worked your way up over the past few years and have learnt lots of important skills and knowledge or you may be looking for the job of your dreams. But something is missing…..
- Are not being taken seriously by your peers and boss.
- Have lost all confidence in yourself as the leader you could be.
- Are working long hours and feeling really de-motivated– Your work/life balance has diminished and you feel devalued.
- Are frustrated that your skills and knowledge are not being recognized but you can’t speak out for fear of losing your job.
- Are not known through the organization for your brilliance and seem to be invisible.
- Have developed a negative belief cycle that is stopping you in your tracks.
- Lack confidence when you go for interviews and keep getting stopped in your tracks.
If you feel powerless and have lost control of your own career path then it’s time to change.
ACCELERATE YOUR CAREER GROWTH AND STEP IT UP WITH CONFIDENCE
Passionate and acutely aware of the importance and the intricacies of the human side of management, Jane Baker is an accomplished leadership and management coach and career consultant to whom I am incredibly grateful. After completing Jane’s coaching programme, things became much clearer! Jane placed emphasis on the need to be perceptive of human relations in the workplace, particularly emotional intelligence and behavior. Jane’s approach taught me that tapping into and anticipating these qualitative factors can help you understand others around you in addition to facilitating both a team’s progress and your own progress within a company or any given professional context. Her focus on the more human aspects of management as well as the importance of establishing your own precise and regular KPIs and goals has stayed with me to this day and there is no doubt that it has helped me get my current position in Paris-based translation company. I am forever grateful to Jane and would recommend her as a premium management and leadership coach.
I totally understand your frustrations, I’ve been there and bought the T-shirt so to speak.
Please, I beg you….you don’t have to give up on your career aspirations because of blocks that have been put in your way— after all you’ve worked so hard to get to this stage.
You can stop worrying about the future right now, put those negative critters away and create a career that you can be proud of.
I’m Jane Baker and I’m here to break down the barriers with you that are stopping you from moving forward.
I have previously worked in the Corporate sector for many years working my way up to manage a multi-million-pound business. I understand the key issues of moving through the “political” minefield in a highly male orientated environment.
I have learnt the hard way in the early years, working against others to get what I needed, feeling isolated and stressed and not being able to get my message across clearly.
My work life balance suffered,
I became an angry, frustrated person who didn’t like herself and my career started to suffer.
My confidence and self-esteem had shattered.
It was a “do something about it moment” or give up. I called a career and management coach where I re-evaluated my behavior, my integrity gaps with the organization and took a long hard look at what was not going so well. I also started to explore holistic methods to help with my wellbeing and to maintain a balance.
I understood the need to create a brand, to understand others behavior, seek out opportunities where my amazing skills could be recognized. I began to realize that I was back in control and could do anything that I wanted. I re-focused my energy, set up a plan and took a chance. It was a success and for many years and I managed a large business with a multi-million- pound turnover.
- I was promoted to Director Level with a feeling of empowerment
- I was in control and confident to take decisions without the impending self -doubt
- My high profile served me well and I was given lots of opportunities suited to my skills
- My communication skills improved and I could speak up and be heard
- My health and work-life balance improved dramatically
- I used my positive energy and holistic learnings for the benefit of others
This success continued and I decided that my experience could help others. I launched www.steppescoaching.co.uk and took my training to another level to serve others.
I was hungry and passionate to use my experience and trained in other areas to complement my business skills:
- An Accredited Business and Career Coach with the International Coaching Academy
- Post Graduate Diploma in performance psychology,
- Accredited facilitator for Emotions and Behavior at Work
- Accredited psychometric facilitator for DISC behavior profiling.
- Fireworks Career Coach
My coaching work over the past 15 years has taken me to work with a variety of individuals and organizations including:
- A high-profile Leadership Programme for Swansea University- working with Directors to help them grow their businesses.
- A woman’s Career Development and Leadership programme set up by the Welsh Assembly to help woman in the workplace accelerate their career into management
- Business Mentor – Welsh Assembly
- Leadership Coaching & Training programmes accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management.
Please have a look at my recommendations on LinkedIn
My success has given me the honor of being shortlisted as both Executive Coach and Business Coach of the Year at the International Coaching Awards.

Module 1 – Setting the Scene
What promotion do I really want? This a soul-searching session where you will firstly learn how to create a vision board for your future career and carry out a detailed confidence and skills assessment exercise to assess development and confidence gaps in your career. This will help you to focus on specific areas, identify key strengths and areas that you will need to start to work on. Once you have done this you will be tasked with setting some SMART goals that we will work on during our 1-1 coaching sessions. The confident you will start to emerge and enable you to plan for the future.
Module 2 – Understanding Behavior & Self- awareness
You will understand how behavior can impact progress both on self and to others. As part of this module, you will be undertaking a detailed psychometric behavior assessment which will be given to you as a report providing insight into the “real you.” WARNING…This exercise can sometimes be a “lightbulb moment” of discovery. You will be using the report to start thinking about how to shift patterns of behavior for future growth and how to effectively portray yourself to others through effective communication, and of course I will be challenging you to think differently on our 1-1 session.
Module 3 – Increasing Your Confidence for Success
This module will help you to re-frame negative thought processes that continually rule your life and stop you from moving forward in your career. You will learn techniques to challenge the so-called “integrity gap” between yourself and others that may be out of synch with your values and beliefs.
You will remove your negative critters for good and understand the “imposter syndrome” using proven cognitive behavior techniques so that you remain positive and open-minded to change.
Module 4 – Discover & Define & Your Personal Brand
Personal branding is so much more than what people see, it is how you make them feel. It’s not about getting people to like you, it’s about getting people to know and trust you and this is why you have to think of yourself as a brand. To really connect with people you have to evoke an emotional response.
This module will help you develop a clearer understanding of who you are, your perceived image and what you need to work on. You will create a value statement that can be used to communicate your shining star qualities to key decision makers in order to move forward in your career.
Module 5 – Speak Up Stand Up How to Communicate Your brand
Once you have a strong brand that you are starting to live by, you will start to identify your key stakeholders and implement some useful strategies to communicate with them. You will start to build a strong reputation and know how to speak up with clarity, identify influencers and know how to correspond with them in an assertive but positive way. You will identify career opportunities quickly with influencers who are starting to trust the “confident” you and you will put a plan in place to implement a branding promotion exercise to accelerate your career to the next level.
Module 6 – Building Your Support Base & Action Planning for the Future
As you’ve worked your way through each of the modules, you’ll have identified good opportunities for promotion, and thought about the skills you need to develop. You’ll know who you need on your side, and you’ll understand what you need to do to build a great reputation. This is all nice to be aware of, but it’s of no use to you if you don’t create a workable plan for applying this knowledge, and taking advantage of the opportunities open to you. This module is reviewing the last 3 months, identifying your support network and creating a plan for the next 12 months.
You are on your way to accelerating your career to success.
Hi Jane, further to working with you and your amazing coaching abilities, l've landed my dream job. Thanks for your support and giving me the confidence to believe in my ability. I am now a Production Manager at a company that sells high end branded merchandise and corporate gifts globally. You have changed my life and I can’t thankyou enough.
Your Coaching Programme has been profoundly life changing for helping me to realize my abilities. I loved the behavioral framework and mapping it to other people to help me speak their language. Such an insight and because of your ability to really delve into my hidden core, I am more confident, relaxed and authentic. I applied for an internal promotion and got the job! You are amazing source of inspiration and many thanks for all your help.
Following on from my coaching programme with Jane, I now have developed a really positive mantra and feel positive about being able to believe in myself. I realize I am my own worst enemy when it comes to criticism and pressure and I have realized that I've got everything at my fingertips to get where I want to be, I just need to do it! I loved the career wheel exercise and knowing what I need to put right to get my life back on track again. Having a list of clear goals for everything that's important to me has given me the focus to really go out and do it! The DISC profiling really helped put things into perspective and enabled me to understand that I am in the right type of job for my personality. Our one to one coaching sessions have been invaluable – what a great programme.
Jane really has made a huge difference to the individuals she has been supporting on this coaching programme. Having been through the coaching with Jane myself, I can recommend her personally and found her coaching style to be balanced by addressing individual areas for development whilst also ensuring that they benefit and work for the business. Her challenging nature has got me to work and approach things in a very different way. Jane is very personable and professional. In short, everyone needs a Jane.

SO, WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAMME DIFFERENT?
STEP IT UP WITH CONFIDENCE is no ordinary career development programme.
I truly believe that everyone should be encouraged to go after what they want, and when confidence is the thing that is stopping them from going after their dreams – it makes me sad. Recognizing that something is missing in your career and vocational life and taking the initiative to change must come from within.
This programme is a transformational process which starts from looking deep inside yourself. I believe that understanding our mind and behavior provides a foundation for change and will have a huge impact on providing a launch-pad to clarify your vision, create a solid direction and then apply the fabulous skills that you already have, even if you currently don’t know you have them!! YOU WILL RE-CONNECT TO YOUR TRUE SELF
You’ll leave with practical tools for taking your career to a whole new level, a mindset for success and a profile that will accelerate your opportunities. I will share all of my secrets to help you move through your blocks and remove the fear to allow a path for progression. There are many courses out there which will give you career skills but this is VERY different. We are on a journey together and I will be with you throughout the whole process of transformational change, challenging your thought processes, …. how exciting is that!!
MY PROMISE TO YOU – GUARANTEE
You will experience a transformation in your consciousness and a NEW awareness of your true power and possibilities.
Without a doubt…. after 3 months you’ll leave the programme knowing you can
STEP IT UP with confidence and accelerate your career.
