Consultancy, Development and Mentoring

Seeing people thrive in their role and want to come to work is pretty special.

To know they are well equipped to do their job and feel supported as a human being is the ultimate company success.

I help companies to achieve just that.

To motivate, educate and support their managers and employees to feel valued and confident to come into work and do their job every day.

I teach solutions and techniques that are easy to implement to manage stress, avoid burnout, create a work life balance that supports an individual’s wellbeing.

As well as soft skills courses for managers, both new and established to build on their confidence, emotional intelligence, dealing with difficult situations and getting the best out of their teams and people.

Professional Biography

Co-author of the #1 Amazon Bestseller – Uncaged: The Rise of the Badass, Josie spent two decades helping companies like Unilever, Royal Bank of Scotland and Pearson to transform their business and develop their people.

Josie stepped down from leadership roles in the corporate world after being professionally bullied and suffering with burnout.

Her experience on the struggles that take place in the corporate world, led her on a mission to not only raise awareness but to change the dynamics in the working world.

Josie works with HR teams across a wide variety of businesses; supporting their managers with soft skills development, overcoming imposter syndrome, leading effective teams and wellbeing techniques to avoid burnout.

A blogger for Psychologies Life Labs, Josie shares her experiences of working in the corporate world and the importance of remaining authentic in your work life through her blogs.

We invited Josie to present a half-day workshop on employee wellbeing to our HR network.  Josie designed and delivered a programme that reviewed an organisations overall wellbeing strategy before looking more closely at mental health and mindfulness techniques to help reduce stress.  Josie’s presenting style is a breath of fresh air; she is so positive and engaging.  The feedback received from all delegates without exception was excellent. She shared her knowledge, facilitated stimulating group discussions and we have gone on to re-engage Josie on a number of occasions.

I contacted Josie initially to arrange stress resilience training for the management team. After speaking with Josie to discuss my requirements we agreed that a leaders wellbeing workshop would be more beneficial. Before the date of the workshop, Josie and I had another catch up and discussed the specific circumstances relevant to my company so that Josie could prepare the presentation and share with me prior to the workshop. We discussed the presentation and Josie was able to make some minor amendments based on my feedback to ensure that we were covering what was relevant to my company. During the workshop, Josie got the managers to think about their own wellbeing and also to consider the overall wellbeing strategy of the company, using real examples and statistics to support the theory. Overall the workshop was engaging and relevant and really got the managers to see the importance of overall wellbeing within the workforce, sparking numerous discussions throughout the session. I will now be looking for Josie to provide some stress resilience training for another area of the business.

Haven Power’s 2018 wellbeing strategy focused on mental wellbeing. One of the activities was to refresh our Stress Management at Work training for managers. To support us with the design, we contacted Waddington Brown for Train the Trainer workshops who in turn put us in contact with Josie. Knowing our business and listening to what we were hoping to get out from this session, Josie tailored her approach and provided us with bespoke training. At the end of the day, we were equipped with a wealth of knowledge and given practical tools on how to manage stress at work. All delegates individually benefited from a better understanding of our own causes for stress and Josie gave us some great ideas on how to promote International Stress Awareness Week at work which we put in place and were well received by employees.
