About Josie

My Story

My career has always been about people; either their personal development or leading and navigating teams and individuals through tough business transformations.

Over my 2o-year corporate career as an employee, interim, and later as an independent Business Change consultant in leadership roles, I’ve been fortunate to experience a range of business sectors from public to insurance, publishing, pharmaceutical, management consultancy, FMCG, banking, retail and law.  I was based in HR, IT and Communication functions.  I was always brought into support people, lead culture change and deliver business transformation.  I did this by using tools and frameworks that put people and teams at the heart of the change.  I learnt very early on in my career that being authentic, honest, and building trust are essential when working with people and leading large change programmes.

Ambitious, driven and focused I built a very successful career, but I had to go through quite a few setbacks, lessons, and experiences both personally and professionally.  I’ve witnessed first-hand toxic work cultures and the impact is has on teams, individuals and ultimately the business and it’s reputation.

Combined with burnout, imposter syndrome, and dancing to other’s expectations of what I should be doing at work – I had enough.

Zero personal life and overcome with a loss of identity, I knew something had to change and took action for my health and sanity.

Who I am now

Getting clear on my next step and the difference I can make was the ultimate light-bulb moment for me and over the years, I’ve come to realise that getting in alignment with what matters most is so important when it comes to the work you do, and being authentic in how you do it.  Finding the right career and role for YOU is life changing.

As a coach, I use the power of coaching psychology to enable high-achievers to grow in confidence and craft a career that reflects who you are.

From my experience in driving change and developing people, I collaborate and work in partnership with senior leaders who want to achieve their business objectives and enable teams and individuals to be the best version of themselves.  Providing insights, a space to reflect and a different perspective, I facilitate sessions to help individuals, teams and companies move forward.

I’m a Post-Graduate in Management, ex-corporate leader,  turned entrepreneur and lover of travelling adventures and personal development – here’s my qualifications:-

👩‍🎓 Postgraduate Certificate in Management (University of Essex)

👩‍🎓 Firework Career Coach (ICF accredited)

👩‍🎓 Management Drives Certified Partner

My Mission

Empowering high-achieving corporate professionals to be the best version of themselves. Where they feel fulfilled, confident and aligned in a career that’s right for them.

I’m passionate about digging deep and uncovering the root causes of unhappiness and preventing them from growing into larger issues where individuals feel they can’t be part of an organisation.

I support senior leaders to nurture their talent and develop their leaders to be the best version of themselves and lead high-performing teams.
Working together to overcome challenges, identify solutions, create a supportive culture, and build effective teams

It’s my reason why I get out of bed each day.

What’s it like working with me?

My coaching style is supportive, I’m here to create the space for you to explore ideas, look at opportunities and empower you to take action and get results.

No coaching programme with me is the same, because each individual is different, you are unique.

Each session is tailored to you, with exercises either during or between sessions, to help you get clarity and direction.

We talk through these in our session and these are often when the lightbulb moments strike.

From the very beginning, honest conversations take place to understand your work challenges, where you want to be in your career, how you want to feel and then we explore ideas, solutions and opportunities that are right for you.

My role is to unleash those ideas and answers that are already deep within you, take action and keep you accountable.

I’m your cheerleader and I will help you believe in yourself and what you’re capable of achieving.
