Jeanette Cowley

Jeanette Cowley is a Managing Director for Go For Growth. Her business helps companies to gain the most from their team and resolve complicated management challenges.

I consider myself a mediator and team coach as my research and client work is about understanding intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, dispute resolution and focusing energy on what matters. Voicing possibilities by drawing on your personal energy sits at the core of everything I do.

Before founding Go For Growth in 2006, Jeanette  was the Group HR Director for a FTSE 100 business that employed 90,000 staff worldwide.

She was also a Managing Director at Marsh and Head of Human Resources for the UK and EMEA Operations at American Express.

Jeanette believes that the time she spent studying at City gave her the courage to pursue her dreams.

Completing my MBA at an early age taught me how to ask senior people leading questions without feeling inferior, but also developed my ability to analyse problems and sparked my love for debate. This early experience has affected me throughout my career and is still part of who I am.

Jeanette has also started writing a book on reflective leadership entitled Breathe: How Do You Want To Spend Your Next 20 Years?
