Gina Gardiner is an experienced Leadership Consultant and Trainer, Speaker, Executive and Life Coach. She supports people at individual or organizational level to develop confidence, leadership and people skills; empowering them to see themselves as the solution. She is also a Neuro Linguistic Master Practitioner.
A serious ski accident in 1983, meant she was forced to use a wheelchair but, in her leadership role as head teacher of a large primary school, it was imperative that she looked at the bigger picture in order to overcome the significant challenges facing her.
Because Gina was in a wheelchair she was unable to access most of the classrooms. She had to look at the bigger picture and develop ways to motivate and engage staff so that they were self reliant and understood how to deliver excellence and take responsibility for their own performance.
Created out of necessity, her approach has proven that once we start to change how we think and how we see ourselves, we start to change our reality and that of those around us. Essentially, this is a huge gateway to maximising leadership potential as well as personal development. It’s also a good reason why in her 20 years of leading the school, it was acknowledged as one of Ofsted’s ‘Best Schools’ twice and included on the HMI honours list as one of England’s most successful schools and had a string of quality and kite marks. The strategies developed there are now being used with great success to help a wide range of business and organizations.
