Riding the COVID-19 wave, together – overcoming the complex leadership challenges, together

If you are reading this, then you are like most of my clients, a successful entrepreneur, CEO or business leader, someone who is committed to make a difference, at work and in life.

One day you were challenging yourself to speed-up growth and the next day you were making plans on how to survive the upcoming crisis. Sounds familiar?

The dream of an extraordinary year 2020 vanished suddenly as COVID-19 has taken your hopes away. Your business seems to be falling apart, your strategy doesn’t fit anymore and you are wondering, how you are going to keep your leadership team together. Wondering how are you going to make it through this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment (VUCA). 

So here you are, standing on a brink of a steep cliff and managing a crisis, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. Trying to stay calm on one hand and on the other, give energy to your employees. Trying to manage your fears and the fears of the people you lead. Wondering how to find that much needed calmness and ease with uncertainty and how to communicate with the people around you.

It is a challenging time for many of us, and we need to learn how to create opportunities from our challenges, how to turn the negative into positive. I myself went through so many different crisis and had to learn how to cope with them and make the best out of every situation. Even though it didn’t always come naturally and it wasn’t easy, it was a growth experience and has opened a whole new world in front of me. Every crisis was a gift – let’s find out yours.

Let me be your sounding board, your advisor and supporter, whatever you need right now, and I will help you transform your current situation, one step at a time, to a place of alignment, renewed energy and completeness. I will guide and support you to lead yourself, your team and business through this crisis, with authenticity, courage and from the heart.

We are all in this together and the secret to go through this is to be human, to be present, to show up and to care.

Because when life gives you lemons, it’s time to make some lemonade! 😉

The balancing act between empathy and being tough; there is room for both emotions and hard business facts; Joy knows how to navigate and accompany in both worlds – and to unite them.

C.M., Global Product Operations Lead, Pharma Industry

Working with Joy has been a life changing experience, personally and especially professionally…

M.B., Managing Director, Fortune500 technology company, Italy division

…thank you for your time and the words, questions and remarks you are using to break my nutshell…

S.A., Managing Director, Fortune500 technology company, Germany

Truly inspirational, authentic and passionate individual, solid professional experience, warm personality allows her to really challenge and push you to open up and be honest with her and yourself.

J.I., General Manager, luxury brand

Personal, experienced and engaging are a few of the first things that come to my mind when I think back on working with Joy.

I had the pleasure of working with Joy during the Arrow Leadership Excellence Program 2018 – 2019 during which she was the facilitator as well as my coach and she shared with me a wealth of experience, advise and tools in regards to leadership.

I was particularly impressed by Joy’s ability to ask the right questions and with that trigger personal reflection and initiate growth. As a coach and facilitator Joy earns my highest recommendation.

Rens van Dorst, Senior Manager Global Operations at Converge (Arrow)

“Journey with Joy. What started as a mere trouble shooting exercise to support me in a challenging professional change process, turned into a joyful journey from the difficult starting point into the present and to a promising future.

With her positive, friendly spirit and a wholistic approach to my specific situation, Joy guided me through the depths of the challenge, not shying away from raising difficult questions and giving me concrete exercises to solve which brought me closer to the answers I was looking for. And what was the really astonishing thing about this journey: I even found answers to questions I had not raised so far, at least not in my professional environment, and in completely different contexts then I had expected.

So in a nutshell: it was my big pleasure to work together with Joy and I can only recommend her as a coach, especially if you are willing to open yourself to follow her guidance.”

Robert Ranftler, Head of Legal & Compliance, RHI Magnesita

One of my direct reports has been working with Joy for about 5 months and it is incredible how much has she developed and grown as a leader. Improvements are really impressive. This has been acknowledged by others stakeholders in the company as well.

I would recommend to any executive starting in a new role or facing challenges in their current one to work with Joy.

K.A., Business Head, Pharma Industry, USA/Austria

Thank you again for your input and guidance Joy. Your thirty minute power coaching session fit nicely into my work day and provided valuable guidance for tackling my areas of concern in an important upcoming meeting scheduled later that same day. I found your coaching style very professional yet personable.

Filipp Kogan, CFO, International Product Development, Inc., Vienna, Austria and the USA

Joy has the ability and intuition to sense what is at the heart of an issue and then analyses it through poignant, direct questions. Through this process, she is able to create a new empowering dimension where everything is possible.

Through her coaching sessions, Joy teaches you tools that can be applied in your everyday life to help you move towards your goals and dreams.

I really enjoyed our sessions and left feeling transformed.

 

Davide Calvi, Owner, T.Telecom Consulting Ltd, London, UK

I worked with Joy to gain clarity and certainty for my business decisions, to help me re-launch my business with greater ease. She not only supported me through this part of my life, she also helped me shift a number of personal blocks that were holding me back. Joy is great at calling out real truths when you’re stuck in your own warped view of things, skilfully guides you to figure things out for yourself and at times puts on her mentor hat to help you get out of your own way. I can highly recommend Joy as she’s a fabulous champion for you and your dreams, and passionately coaches you to achieve your goals more easily and effortlessly.

Carola Moon, Portrait Photographer, Carola Moon Portraits, Oxfordshire, UK

It has been a great pleasure to work with Joy and I highly recommend her.

In the beginning it seemed unlogical to do online coaching sessions but this soon disappeared as snow for the sun. Joy is a great listener and intuitively feels what interventions to do and knows what kind of questions to ask by her expertise. And that works! Keep it up Joy and reinvent the world, one person at a time.

Joost Veldman, Fundraiser, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I have found my coaching experience with Joy extremely valuable. She brings a unique combination of real life experience along with a true passion for coaching, which has been instrumental in my personal and professional growth. Joy has helped me identify the challenges I was having, her ability to ask the right questions has helped me to uncover the root causes of key issues. Joy is an exceptional coach and I’d highly recommend her.
