“I credit my growth and all the future opportunities I have received thanks to Josette’s guidance. She and I engaged early on in my career at Marketo. Her guidance positioned me to take on leadership opportunities in the Americas and in Europe, allowing me to bring the best out of my teams. It’s because of her approach that I am able to tap into the potential of each of my country teams and achieved over $115 Million in growth over 3 years.
Josette has a style that makes people instantly comfortable with her and quickly hones in on what areas might need strengthening while driving towards a common outcome. Her experience as a c-suite executive and officer of Balcor/AMEX is truly a value-add for leaders seeking to take on those responsibilities. The thing I liked most about her approach is that she immediately cited a prior executive situation she had from her past, giving me a strong sense of confidence.
Josette’s ability to speak in practical terms and her ability to relate to many contexts—not theory—is what makes her a sought-after advisor, coach and mentor. I personally, professionally and enthusiastically recommend her–you won’t go wrong with Josette.”

“I initially worked with Josette in relation to my previous company’s Executive Development Program. In my international role, her keen insights were immediately beneficial and impactful. Her extraordinary perspectives on internal and external personal interactions and partnerships were invaluable. Josette also guided me to a higher level of awareness with a comprehensive self-assessment and a corresponding action plan that made an important impact on my career progression.
I commend Josette for her unwavering reliability, trust and excellent communication. I look forward to continuing my coaching relationship with Josette as I embark in my new international role.”
“Josette is a pleasure to work with and she is a phenomenal coach! She made every meeting comfortable and made it easy to share my thoughts and strategies with her. She also provided me with unbiased advice that was difficult to find within my workplace and she was a ready source of counsel whenever I needed it. She was critical in developing a leadership philosophy and helped me make changes in the ways that I provide feedback to my staff and push them to grow.
Additionally, she prepared me for my next step professionally and I truly appreciate that. In trying situations, I often find myself asking “What would Josette advise me to do?” She is a mentor and a great individual!”

“As an experienced leader you may fall into your own comfort zone and complacency. I was always one to challenge myself and so when I sought out Josette’s services I didn’t know what to expect. Josette has a wonderful style that is engaging yet very thought provoking. She provides current and evidence-based resources with her suggestions. She keeps you on task and motivated to meet your personally designed development plan. She is a great listener and will bring back many of your own reflections/observations in the development process.
I would highly recommend her to any leader who wants to take their skill set and ability to impact others to the next level.”
