Josie, has been fascinated by the intersection of strategy, people, process and change since her early career as a corporate strategic planner. In 1999, she commenced her executive coaching practice and was President of ICF Australasia in 2003. During 2009 Josie received the International Coach Federation President’s 2009 Award for her contribution to the professional coaching industry in Australia.
A passion for a sustainable world fuelled Josie’s doctoral thesis that involved her as an external change agent within a client organisation to understand how an organisation might transform itself to
nurture people and planet– just like a person might – from the inside out. She has developed expertise in complexity, organisational sustainability and adaptive leadership.
Increasingly her work is turning to teaching others, those in positions of authority and sustainability practitioners, how to move forward within complexity.
Josie continues to research and publish as a Visiting Research Fellow Yunus Social Business Centre (University of Adelaide) and she is also a co-founder on the global Climate Coaching Alliance initiative. Her latest book is Big Little Shifts: A practitioner’s guide to complexity for organisational change and adaptation (2020).
