Jo was able to get to the core of my coaching goals quickly and clarify the development areas that were meaningful and impactful at this stage of my leadership journey.
During the course of the coaching I felt both supported and challenged to implement and embody my ‘new ways’. I have been able to grow significantly during this time. I thank Jo for her presence, curiosity and inspiration through her guidance and tools. It has been an engaging and enjoyable program.”
