What Our Clients Are Saying

Close quote icon - light blue

“We hired Jo to work with an customer-facing team that was not functioning cohesively. Jo’s work with our team was incredibly valuable and productive. She helped us create a framework for our shared goals and values, facilitated teambuilding exercises and enhanced our communication and conflict resolution skills. The team is working more collaboratively and functioning on a much higher level as a result of our work with her.”

Barbara Darrow-Blake
Chief Development Officer, Alameda County Community Food Bank

“I started working with Jo when I realized the business needed a different type of leadership to transition from being a start-up to a bigger company. And my team did develop; we turned a corner and grew. I chose to work with Jo because she quickly understood and synthesized my experience, even when it was hard for me to articulate. She got the picture and presented it back to me with different options of how I might think differently and find the most effective way of moving forward.”

Ginny Fang
CEO, Golden Gate Global

“We needed our small team to gel as fast as possible during our reorganization. They did, thanks to Jo and her team. Jo helped take on the responsibility of making sure that the team was working effectively so I could focus on the day-to-day operations. She has helped me in developing, maturing, and feeling comfortable in addressing tough issues; you develop the confidence that you have the right coach.”

Naveed Shams
Head of Global R&D, Santen

“Our coaching has given me a better understanding of my strengths and how to use those to be a better leader. I see the world in a different way now, truly understanding other people’s strengths and weaknesses. I made significant changes during my time with Jo, improving how I navigate new situations professionally and personally. Jo is amazing, frankly. She is so perceptive and so skilled and really understands how to grow, how to improve.”

Ann Silverberg
CEO, NorCal Affordable at Related California

“After just 8 months working with Jo, I’ve succeeded at achieving every one of my intentions–something I never thought possible! Her gifts include discernment, connection and understanding, along with her ability to inspire the best version of me. Jo not only helped me achieve remarkable results in my existing position but also to position myself for a new career opportunity that has ended up being an ideal fit.”

Karla Ortiz
VP, Sales, CiscoHome

“My coaching with Jo has been transformative and fundamentally changed my life. I now understand the way I process information and interactions and can think more clearly about how to respond, allowing me to manage any situation much more effectively. I would definitely recommend Jo to other executives who want to increase their leadership skills and presence.”

Jeanne Adler
CFO at Huneeus Vitners

“I started coaching because I was having a rough time at work after I had been promoted to SVP. I needed some help to understand how I could make the shift from being a manager to being a leader. When Jo first started with me, our company had ended the year with very bad financial performance and my team was a big part of that. I needed to know how to turn those results around. My management quality index went from in the 60th percentile to 100% this year, a change that happened because of my work with Jo. I now have the highest score in terms of managing change in the company as a leader. I completely changed how I structure my time and lead.”

Amy Yao
Chief Actuarial Officer, Blue Shield of California
