Jo is a Certified Master of The Leadership Challenge and Certified LPI Coach. She holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Coaching Skills, is a Certified Somatic Coach practitioner, an NLP and Transactional Analysis practitioner and is accredited to use MBTI® Step I and Step II, FIRO-B®, TMSDI, Hogan HDS and 360 and SDi.

Working mainly with senior leaders, Jo particularly enjoys facilitating culturally diverse groups, team coaching, and one-to-one coaching. She specialises in helping clients to identify and tackle the real issues with which they are dealing in the workplace. In particular, she helps people to build their confidence and positive self-belief leading to new behaviours that underpin effective performance.

Her approach is collaborative, practical and outcome orientated. Jo has over 20 years’ experience working in the corporate environment, from the financial services sector to energy and manufacturing. As a consultant, she has coached individuals from a broad spectrum of industries (including insurance, telecommunications and pharmaceutical). She has direct experience of leading teams and complex multi-stakeholder projects, often on a virtual pan-European basis.

Outside of work Jo’s family keeps her connected to what is important in life. She also enjoys yogalates, running, swimming, catching up with friends, travel and the odd glass of wine (though not always in that order…)
