Executive Coaching

coachingJoanna Miller has a long track record coaching executives on issues related to career transitions, career planning, on-boarding, team building, succession planning, performance enhancement and skill and competency development. She previously led a management assessment practice for a major human capital firm. Joanna has recently been trained in the Columbia University Coaching Certification Program. The Columbia Approach to Executive and Organizational coaching is theoretically grounded in the Science of Human Performance and is based on three coaching foundations of: (1) guiding principles, (2) coaching competencies, and (3) a three-phased coaching process (Jackson 1991 & Maltbia 2001). This multidisciplinary approach to coaching emphasizes integrating theory with practice drawing from psychology, neuroscience, organization development, business management, and leadership research.
