Welcome to Distinctions Executive Coaching

We draw on our 18 years of experience coaching global C-suite leaders to improve business performance, develop as leaders, identify their Purpose, allow talent to thrive, and improve retention in organisations.

Who we are

Based in the UK, Joanna is a professional integral corporate coach through USA-based New Ventures West and the University of Cape Town, South Africa’s Graduate School of Business’ Centre for Coaching. She is MCC accredited through the International Coach Federation (ICF) with over 2,500 hours of coaching. She coaches individuals and teams in the UK and across the world.

What we do

Using focused and measurable outcomes that are linked to the client’s business objectives and organisational goals we use integral coaching techniques to help clients develop an understanding of their patterns, unearth latent potential, and learn how to go about using that potential to achieve their desired goals. Ultimately, coaching is a way of working with people so they are able to contribute positively to their organisations and find meaning in what they do.

What Clients Say About Us

‘Through your corporate coaching I believe I’ve gained a far greater awareness and understanding of my motives, ways of behaving and goals in life. You have provided me with the toolset to manage these insights; playing to my strengths and managing my weaknesses. All in all my sessions with you have been an eye-opening experience that I believe will make the management of my career and personal life easier and more balanced.’
