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. While I currently consultant and coach others on their leadership journey, I did not always feel empowered to lead both in my own career and in my role as and HR leader, department head and people manager.
When I sought support and guidance from some of my bosses and senior leaders much of the advice I received either invalidated my experience or advocated levels of conformity that minimized the value of my knowledge and skills as well as my viewpoint as a millennial, a woman and a person of color.
And then I came across a quote one day that completely changed my perspective.
“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.”
Instead of just trying to keep my head down and staying under the radar, as I had repeatedly been advised, I chose to do battle.
Standing on the foundation of my experience as a senior HR leader in both the not for profit and corporate spaces I empower my clients to leverage (rather than diminish) their identities and individual experiences to fuel their personal and professional success and the success of their teams, businesses and organizations.
If that sounds like the type of support you've been seeking
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.
