As you’ve seen, I’m now an HRBP at a new company and I absolutely love it! With your help, I secured several interviews and received 3 job offers within a month of leaving my previous employer! Wasn’t the plan, but I saw a few things I liked and thought I’d give it a go! In the end, I found a perfect match, and I am so so happy! Really, I haven’t felt like this for ages and I cannot wait for Monday morning to come!! So thank you. Your help with the CV writing in particular got me in front of people. I always thought I’d “be alright” if I got face to face with people and with a bit of luck too it’s worked out perfectly! Good luck with everything and for one last time, thanks for all your help. I really appreciate it.
Jo is an incredible coach and mentor, totally committed to improving your professional and personal life. By keeping you focused and accountable, yet providing an unbiased point of view, she provides you with a clear vision of where you are going, helping you to define what you want and where you want to be. She takes the time to understand your goals, dreams and aspirations, always finding new ways to support you. She is a dynamic woman who by coming from her heart, has an excellent ability to connect with people, inspiring and nurturing them to move in a positive direction. Jo is a great listener, and asks the right questions to lead you to very solid decisions, making you look at things in new ways. Jo helped me to prepare for a major employment transition and supported me through the transition. She has helped me to focus and prioritise. I have been better able to look at problems in different ways, thus finding very meaningful solutions. I am a better leader today because of the coaching I received from Jo.
Have you ever been told what a great job you’re doing? And then a week later been told that you’re being made redundant? Well, it happened to me and it completely took away my confidence in my own ability. I met with Jo and she was able to completely restore my self confidence due to her vast experience of dealing with people in this situation. Jo is lovely and will share her knowledge with you so you can pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back out there with your confidence restored. Jo is highly recommended.
Jo’s open and approachable style made it really easy for me to share those issues that were holding me back at being the best version of me I could be. Jo helped me recognise and identify the internal negative thoughts and limitations I was placing on myself and by applying the simple easy to use techniques she taught me I have been able to address these and feel more effective in my role than ever. Reading the regular blogs that Jo sends out act as an ongoing top up and reinforce my new positive outlook – I can’t wait to read the book !!! Thank you for your support Jo.
Praise must go to Jo Banks who has been extremely professional, strong and influential throughout our time working together. It is obvious that Jo has elevated credentials within the HR and People Management sector and I feel that I have personally benefited from working with her and I would not hesitate to recommend or ask for her experienced view in the future. Jo has many strings to her bow and is highly proficient in coaching and development and if there is ever an opportunity to benefit from this coaching in the future on a professional level, I would certainly be the first person to step forward and embrace this to enhance my skills which in turn would benefit the business. I see a lot of value in what she does.
I emerged from Jo’s management development programme refreshed and revitalised. Jo’s interactive workshops combine her wealth of business knowledge and understanding of leadership attributes to nurture talent, promote confidence and develop high impact managers. From Jo I learned the importance of considering rationale when faced with seemingly intractable challenges and the power of effective decision making to create profitable relationships. Jo’s charismatic delivery inspires and empowers her delegates, challenging the conventions of typical management programmes.
