I created J Gadd Associates in March 2014, combining a unique blend of leadership and performance coaching with a proven employee engagement approach, underpinned through independent review. We deliver effective tailor made solutions, which improves performance of individuals and organisations. I was delighted to welcome Philippa Meaden as my first Associate in November 2014.
Early 2015 saw us being joined by Libby Unsworth and Kathie Robb as Engagement Associates and later in the year Garry Davis came on board.
Our Values: WORKING TOGETHER. It's people who make the difference.
We are a non-political organisation and do not make donations to political parties or single partisan causes. However, we do believe in playing a full and responsible part within the community. For us, this is more than simply a CRS box tick, which is why we describe our contribution as RCS; ‘Real Community Service’. We provide one day a month, pro-bono support to the charities we care about.
We are proud to be support members of the EOA, an organisation established to promote and support the values of employee owned organisations.
J Gadd Associates
We enable people to harness their full potential, creating a shared ownership for the organisation and personal responsibility for their success.
Our unique approach combines proven experience of successful employee engagement and qualified business coaching. We work with people who truly understand your organisation, you and your people.
