About Joanna

I catalyze leaders and their teams to grow stronger and go faster after their goals by leveraging their strengths.

Do you have a strong team of leaders?

I love working with teams that are already strong, but ...something is keeping them from being exceptional!

That something can be a strained relationship between teammates, lack of clarity around roles, goals or processes, or too much focus on the team’s gaps.

This past year, I helped many strong teams become more engaged and productive by shifting their focus from wrong to strong. Gallup research proves me right. Teams that take on a Strengths-based approach see up to 29% increase in profit and up to 15% increase in employee engagement.

As a Ph.D. chemist by background, I have learned that I am a results-oriented catalyst to my clients. With a mix of hands-on activities, tangible “Thrive Tools”, and Gallup research, I help leaders reach their goals. Frequently, my clients describe me as warm, engaging, and insightful and that makes me smile.

Would you and your team like to have a culture of deeper trust, more meaningful relationships, and tangible business outcomes? Then, I would love to partner with you and help you leverage your team's strengths as you go after your goals.
