Meet Joan

Joan was in the corporate world for years. What she noticed was that there are a lot of people who live a life someone else created for them rather than being deliberate about who, what and how they want to be.
Often, people don’t think the way they want to live and work. Rather, they just go from one required task or challenge or accomplishment to another. Your best work and living comes when your values, knowledge, skills, abilities, competencies, and capabilities are in alignment. When you’re “out of sync” it can really jam up the works.
When we take the time to evaluate what really matters—be that personal or professional or corporate America—great things happen.
Joan has been fortunate enough to find her passion and live her own truth. She is dedicated to paying it forward. We are not part of a one-size-fits-all society.
Let’s get together and figure out what approach fits best for you. So you can be your most extraordinary self.

What Joan's Wonderful Clients Say

  • In the course of my work with Joan, I have cried hard, laughed harder, and grown into a confident and strategic leader. As Joan once told me, “some days you are the windshield, and some days you are the bug.” Thanks to her coaching there are fewer bug days, not just for me but for my team because we have all benefited from Joan’s coaching and tools to communicate proactively, establish clarity around roles and responsibilities, to positively resolve conflict.

    Barbara McKenna Director of Strategic Communications
  • Joan is a great listener, supportive advocate, and true leader to help you make changes which will have a meaningful impact on you and your company.

    With Joan’s guidance, I was able to identify key areas for development, collaborated with key advocates to help support my efforts, and ultimately make meaningful changes by developing the long-term habits needed for success. Through her efforts I was able to expand my engagement with other coworkers and empower leaders on my team to greater achievements.
