Jo likes to create lasting relationships with clients, enabling them to take a more proactive approach to managing their businesses and leading their people in order to build the sustainability of their business. She works with them to get the fundamentals in place in the short-term, then helps them to create a longer-term plan, and the processes to execute it.
Many of Jo’s clients have enjoyed significant growth whilst working with her. She helps them ensure the right building blocks are in place, become laser-focused on the current and future needs of their customers, and build significant capability into their leadership teams.
Jo understands the issues business owners contend with, such as having to balance managing the business day to day whilst thinking strategically about the future. She knows that while many business leaders have a good grasp on what they need to do, they need some support to make it happen and to build the disciplines that sustain growth.
