Ann Daugherty :: Summary

“Jo’s workshop was such a huge success. All the reviews were positive. The attendees came away from the workshop inspired, better equipped to lead their teams, get more visibility for themselves and to take greater charge of their careers. After the first workshop, we absolutely had to ask her to give several more. Jo’s presentations are well-constructed, visually pleasing and have immediate, practical utility. Her warm, approachable and generous personality comes through with professionalism and purpose.”

“100% of the participants report that she is an engaging and effective facilitator”

“Our fast-paced synthetic biology startup has a young workforce that is hungry for training and needs to develop a broad range of soft skills. Jo helped us craft several workshops aimed at developing managers, leaders, and individual contributors to train them how to have effective career discussions, and how to engage in difficult conversations, among various other programs. She listened to our needs and developed learning experiences to introduce materials and approaches and her design always involved action learning and real-time simulations. She has facilitated these workshops several times and we continue to bring her back to do more. In all instances on workshop evaluations, 100% of the participants report that she is an engaging and effective facilitator. We look forward to working with her again!”

“The positive feedback I have received after her presentation was phenomenal.”

“In my current position as Director of Career Services and Alumni Advising for the Office of Career Strategy at Yale University, I selected Jo to lead a presentation as part of Yale’s Career Management Webinar Series for Alumni. The positive feedback I have received after her presentation was phenomenal. Her expertise on the subject matter is outstanding. It was terrific to work with Jo. She exceeded expectations, went above what she was asked to do while maintaining remarkably high standards. In addition, Jo is now serving as an external career coach for Yale University’s Office of Career Strategy.”

“My team said that it was the most helpful work they’ve had…”

“Jo conducted an excellent training and team building daylong workshop for my full leadership team. After working with Jo as my coach, I knew she would be the perfect person to hire to help my team overcome some fears around failures and collaboration that had cropped up working together to move our product launch decisively forward. Jo quickly understood the issues I was up against with my team and designed and executed the perfect day filled with learning, team-building, and productive strategizing. My team said that it was the most helpful workshop they’ve had and we are already putting her strategies into action to make tough decisions and accelerate our product launch. Given that most of the team lives overseas, I am also impressed that Jo’s material could translate so well to such a multi-cultural team.”

“Jo is vivacious and fun, warm and approachable.”

“Jo spoke recently at a Women in Leadership breakfast that I co-host. What a joy to have her! She is vivacious and fun, warm, and approachable. Despite our early morning start, she was quick to engage us and get us to begin to flex the skills that were the subject of her workshop entitled “Mastering the Art of Results: 3 Essential Skills to Create High-Performing Teams, Stand Out & Get Promoted. We received great feedback about Jo’s presentation and activities. Our guests got a lot of value from the information she shared.”
