I'm Intentional About
Developing Better People
Joy is a Human Resource Development Consultant, Business Strategist, Public Speaker, Educator, Author and Sprinkler of Black Girl Magic. In 2017, Joy decided to leverage her 10 plus years of Human Resources management experience to help individuals become better leaders, empowering them and to build and develop better teams.
That decision gave birth to JVP Legacy LLC, a boutique consulting firm that provides leadership and team development coaching, consulting and training with a special focus on supporting new and emerging leaders of diverse backgrounds.
Joy currently holds a Master’s degree in Human Resources Management, a Bachelor’s in Economics, SPHR and SHRM-SCP certifications and is pursuing her JD at Rutgers Law School in Newark, NJ.
Now that we are done with the formalities…
While I completely love doing and being all the things mentioned in my bio… there is more than a passion for people driving my mission. Despite my role as a coach and advocate for others, I did not always feel empowered both in my own career progression and in my ability to call out some of the challenges that impacted employees of diverse backgrounds.
When reaching out for guidance much of the advice I received either downplayed my experience or recommended levels of conformity that undermined the value of my voice and viewpoint as a millennial, a woman and a person of color.
Well, one day I came across a quote that completely changed my perspective.
Instead of continuing to seek permission I chose to do battle. Through people-centric coaching, training and "Thought Partnership", I empower my clients to leverage (rather than diminish) their identities and experiences to fuel their personal and professional success.
If that sounds like what you've been seeking
“Sometimes we are blessed with being able to choose. the time, and the arena, and the manner of our revolution, but more usually. we must do battle where we are standing.”
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 find the source, identify the symptoms and help you correct it, execute and grow from the experience.
