The Value Experience One-on-One With Joanna
One-on-one calls with me, Joanna Bloor, where together we map and activate your professional future.
I don’t play by the standard rulebook. This is not your traditional executive coaching program. My single focus is not on incremental results, but rather, on achieving transformational results.
Here are a couple of things you should know before jumping in as I’ve found sharing these expectations upfront means you get a better experience.
I am your professional Potentialist.
I am now taking on the role of “potentialist” for you. By being your potentialist, all my questions are focused on crafting and creating positioning language for the Future You. It means I’m both listening for unique and compelling information about how you’re going to solve problems in the future AND considering how to position those same assets to a potential decision-maker.
I’m not the only one doing the work.
You will have work to complete before and after each one-on-one session. This is not busy work; each set of exercises follows the “market research – create – beta test” model allowing us to experiment and validate our approach as efficiently as possible. Like taking any product to market the first version is never perfect and customer feedback is critical to its success. I’m here to be your adventure guide (I have the map and a bag of specialized tools) but this is YOUR adventure.
I’m not a therapist, I’m an amplifier.
While I’ll end up being your biggest cheerleader, you’re not working with me because you need a hug. You’re going to experience some tough love. It’s likely I’ll call you out for being boring but I won’t be a jerk. I also won’t let you sell yourself short. I play in the modern world where you are a multidimensional, brilliant human, not simply a title or a resume submitted into an applicant tracking system.
YOU are the expert in your industry.
Here’s where this experience becomes collaborative and fun for me too because I get to learn about your expertise. I’m an expert in creating language to talk about the future you, whatever your industry. I have 30+ years of experience marketing, operationalizing, and selling products that didn’t previously exist. Your experience + my experience = a great team! I’ve worked with everyone from the military to a minister, from entrepreneur to educator, and everything in between. You are the expert, it’s my job to craft the language that articulates your awesome expertise.
It’s YOUR career adventure, and you get to choose.
Look at me as your guide on your professional adventure. I’ll help you consider decisions using my unique set of tools and deploy the necessary equipment (job decision instruments, design documents, networking tools, etc.) as you need them. These are all included in your One-On-One Experience. It also means that unlike traditional executive coaches, I don’t have a standard, pre-determined plan for you. Like any choose-your-own-adventure, the starting point for the journey is the same for everyone but where you go from there is up to you. Each person’s experience will be unique because well, you are unique.
