I am intentional about DEVELOPING leaders AND TEAMS.
TEAM SUCCESS STRATEGIST
"I find great JOY in partnering with and empowering diverse leaders, visionaries, entrepreneurs, and teams."
The work I have done over the last 13 years, as a Human Resources Director and Business Partner, has afforded me access to some amazing opportunities, organizations, and people. However, at times I have been in spaces that did not promote my professional growth. As a woman and a person of color and despite my role as a coach and advocate for others, much of the career advice I received either over-simplified my experience or recommended levels of conformity that undermined the value of my voice and viewpoint as a diverse leader. Feeling disempowered in my role, I came across a quote that completely changed my perspective.
“The problem contains the solution.” Michael Bierut
The problem: Most leadership development and team building employ a very prescriptive model to engage people and drive outcomes. These models rarely if ever factor in the nuanced experiences of individuals with diverse and intersectional identities.
The solution: I have developed a people-centric approach through coaching, training and "Thought Partnership"helping my clients leverage (rather than diminish) their diverse identities and experiences to fuel professional success.

"The one thing that makes Joy stand out in a sea of consultants and strategists is literally the way she thinks. Joy possesses one of the rarest personality types -- INTJ -- meaning she is an Architect, building people, organizations and businesses from the ground up." - Maleeka Holloway
Now you may be wondering “the way she thinks... INJT? please just keep reading!
Four INTJ Women for Every 500 Women
Female INTJs are rarer than any other group. For every five hundred women, only four have an INTJ profile.
INTJ stands for Introverted, Intuition, Thinker, and Judgment. It's one of the sixteen Myers-Briggs profiles, the most popularly utilized psychometric test in the world. INTJs are natural leaders but prefer not to be leaders. They only take on leadership roles when it's important that they do.
An INTJ woman is hard to find. That's because she is so rare!
An INTJ woman would comprise the following categories:
Introversion: The “I” stands for introverted which means she obtains her energy and personal satisfaction from her thoughts, imagination, and/or creativity rather from external factors like other people, status, and/or possessions.
Intuition: The “N” stands for Intuition. It means that she draws from stored unconscious knowledge accrued through the years from books, movies, other people, experience, and reflection. Generally, the INTJ has top-notch information stored.
Thinker: The “T” stands for thinker (as opposed to feeler), and this means that decisions are based on a process of deduction and analysis rather than what she feels. Bear in mind that feeling is related to emotions and is not the same as intuition.
Judgement: The “J” stands for Judgement, and it means that closure is preferred. Open-ended and unresolved problems and issues are not welcome to the lady INTJ.
Rare Combination of Intuition and Thinking
Less Than 1% of the Population
The INTJ is unusual in their combination of intuition and thinking. The result is an individual with a highly developed imagination and the ability to apply detail to visualization, thus bringing into being original and practical solutions.
Other names for INTJs are strategists and system-builders.

I can say so many things about Joy Pittman, but the biggest thing I can say about her is she can provoke you to really analyze your vision. As a visionary we tend to think big and overlook small details that are important to successful execution. This can lead to frustration and cause you to want to give up and throw it all away. Joy has the ability to help you identity what is missing when it comes to building your vision and making sure you have the right people in place to help you remain sustainable. If you are looking to really move into full time entrepreneurship, building a non-profit or a ministry she is probably the best thought partner supporting this industry to help you really move your business forward. I think, no, I know anything that is wrong in your business, Joy will be able to find the source, identify the symptoms and help you correct it, execute and grow from the experience.

When I think of brilliant, I think of Joy Pittman. She is the true definition of all things smart, practical and well thought out. Her ability to provide solutions rests on the fact that she is the answer to many issues business owners like myself have. I've witnessed her bring clarity and enlightened awareness to the uninformed in structured and impromptu settings. Joy undoubtedly possesses both the knowledge and skill needed to help others navigate and chart out their personal and professional paths. Don't think without her!
