Jo Clare, Principal Coach for Career Evolution

We are delighted to that our Associate Jo Clare will take up the responsibilities of Principal Coach for Career Evolution this month.  Jo takes over from Kate Howsley, who has been working as our Principal Coach for the past 11 years.

She is also an Organisational Development and Leadership Consultant, and an experienced Facilitator.  Commented Jo: “I am looking forward to working with our clients to support them in helping their leaders and teams to achieve their full potential through coaching and development. I will be helping them to establish the culture and environment where everyone feels welcome and can fully contribute, using their strengths, skills, and experience to deliver great outcomes.”
