Why 6 months?

Less time is simply not long enough to really dig into the work, especially given Joan’s very practical approach.  In addition, 12 sessions in six months compels clients to make a real commitment to make the most of each session with a dose of urgency.

Can't I just hire Joan for an hour to pick her brain?
We’ve tried it and it doesn’t work for clients or for Joan.  The real benefit Joan offers is with an extended and intensive coaching  engagement.  And Joan doesn’t feel she can add real value in a single session.

“I think Joan is a gift. I was hesitant and from the first moment I felt at ease. She makes it easy to be honest because she truly listens. She challenges you to move towards clarity in defining goals. I would recommend her to any org in transition or looking to spark the next phase of their journey.”

Michael McElroy

Founder, Broadway Inspirational Voices

“As a founder of a new and rapidly growing organization, having a thought partner was invaluable. Joan helped us make tough decisions starting with the structure of our organization and strengthening our board. Joan is wise but lighthearted – clear and her advice is immediately actionable.”
Maria Teresa Kumar

President, Voto Latino

“Joan teaches, mentors, instructs, strategizes and diagnoses how I can be the best that I can be. She not only gets it from the CEO’s perspective, but also the Board chair’s side. I’m far clearer about what my strategic priorities are.”
