Joelle’s coaching was invaluable. It was helpful to have another perspective on what the different issues I was facing meant, and what to do about them. Joelle gave me encouragement and techniques for addressing the problems. With Joelle’s coaching, you always leave with something practical and develop a plan that is actionable, realistic, and even measurable.
Executive Vice President
I have been a client of Joelle Jay for over seven years. I hired Joelle to help me focus on team dynamics within my work group. She is a professional who is available whenever her clients need her, even for a busy executive with a full schedule. She stays focused on her clients’ primary objectives over time, so that goals are achieved. Coaching is an emotional and financial investment, and one of the best ways I have seen leadership supported at the highest levels.

Coaching has made me more efficient. I get more work done, and the work I do is better. I pay better attention to detail, I have better focus, and I’m more organized. At times, Joelle has asked me to explore what I’ve done well so that I might unpack these successes and draw from them as I plan future activities and strive for “authentic leadership.” Coaching provided me the clarity I needed to be a better leader.
Senior Vice President
Coaching helped me to “hold steady” during a very turbulent time – a remarkable accomplishment given the new responsibilities, change, and stress I was experiencing! The coaching model was new to me, but it helped me learn to help other people find their own answers instead of having me solve their problems…and that also took a load off of me. I’m a much stronger leader now than I once was.
President and Manager
Coaching is so valuable to professionals who don’t have time to slow down! It forces you to stop and reflect on what you’re doing. It gives you a chance to focus on what’s most important to you and to be sure you’re going in the right direction. My time with Joelle has been fun and invigorating while she helped me rise to the challenge of my new position. My success would have taken longer without her!
Joelle’s enthusiasm in our partnership encouraged me to continuously reframe my challenges in the positive. I recommend her as a coach!
