Executive Coach - London


Joanna has been an Executive Coach for twenty years and operates Distinctions Executive Coaching in the UK, offering coaching services to corporate executives, senior management and leadership teams, and professional individuals working on strategic, leadership, relationship and life challenges and transitions globally.

She also associates to seven global coaching providers globally; alongside running Distinctions Executive Coaching, delivering multinational coaching projects for them.

Her approach includes Integral Coaching, Somatic Intelligence, Systemic Constellations for Business, the Enneagram, and human behaviour change creating meaning, ensuring that she remains current in the learning of these disciplines to maintain a depth of knowledge in her coaching.

Joanna worked in Corporate Banking with Citigroup for ten years, for the most part as a Senior Vice President overseeing multinational clients across industry sectors. She partly managed the multinational business segment for CEEMEA from Brussels and London for some months, covering 16 industries across 38 countries. Her previous experience as a Vice President in international banking allows her to understand key issues and challenges in the corporate and banking world and how they relate to a corporate client’s business environment.

Joanna is MCC accredited with the ICF, a Master level coach, and one of approximately 70 MCC coaches in the UK currently.

Her coaching approach uses models and tools from the Integral coaching methodology, incorporating practices and self-observations covering the areas of language, body and emotion, specific to the client’s requirements. She uses Systemic Constellations in one-to-one coaching, operating from her values of Presence, Awareness, Authenticity, and Purpose.

Joanna’s core motivation is to help clients identify real meaning and purpose in their roles, given the speed and pressures of their external working environments. She does this by enabling the client to shift their perspective – creating self-awareness through mindfulness, building a resilient, grounded inner self, and helping them develop a new understanding of their patterns. In doing so, she aims to unearth latent potential, and helps them learn how they go about using that potential to achieve their desired goals. She also looks at how the client represents him/herself, their life, habits, relationships, body awareness, and self-care, as well as the amount of attention and energy that is available for change.

Joanna has been a key advisor and coach to me enabling my transition into and successful establishment as a senior business executive. She is incredibly effective in balancing listening, coaching and challenge to explore self, values, purpose with a focus on personal and business impact. If you are looking to level up, or simply evolve your leadership impact, Joanna is a wonderful sparring partner to enable meaningful change. Jessica Schmidt
