Hello, world!

I'm Joia. I'm an entrepreneur, coach, writer, and speaker.

I’m passionate about supporting the world's visionaries, problem solvers and change makers. I strive to challenge and inspire them in becoming empowered leaders. My background and expertise is in client-directed Transformational Coaching and Leadership Development. 

What does it take to be a successful leader?

While there are many differing models and philosophies of leadership, they generally converge around certain key actions, skills, and attributes:

★ Holding a Vision
★ Influencing and Persuading Others
★ Taking Up Responsibility / Ownership for Results
★ Exercising Sound Judgment & Decision Making
★ Understanding Human Motivation / Empathy
★ Powerful Communication
★ Self-Awareness & Self-Regulation
★ Living Up to Core Values & Serving as a Role Model

My own mission revolves around creativity/innovation and happiness. I truly believe everybody can and ought to be pursuing multidisciplinary excellence and living a Creator's Life - it's the necessary (but not often enough stressed!) aspect of achieving the full spectrum of happiness and fulfillment. 

In addition to coaching leaders and entrepreneurs, I'm an advocate for transformational travel - the practice of intentionally traveling to stretch, learn, and grow into new ways of being and engaging with the world. I believe travel experiences provide powerful opportunities to challenge yourself, to develop a more nuanced perspective, and to fuel your ability to create value for humanity.
