She’s a Professional Credentialed Coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF), with broad experience across diverse professions & sectors, including engineers, health professionals, IT professionals, SME entrepreneurs, educators, & corporate leaders.
Typical coaching conversations include: clarifying values-purpose/vision; enabling trust; communicating with influence; delivering on priorities; work design for performance; personal & team effectiveness. Assisting clients to review, plan, & lead beyond challenges/ competing demands, requires a systems perspective. Judy works from a model of Human Performance, understanding that it is the interplay of the Environment/Task/Person which optimises performance or regrettably constrains performance.
When it comes to addressing ‘thriving’, she draws on her experience in work analysis; recent research in neuroscience, positive psychology; & use the ‘Map of Meaning’ as a template for crafting work for deeper engagement & success.

Judy is interested in how the deep work can be done with the pace of changes in technology & consumer expectations.
