Distinctions Executive Coaching is an executive coaching practice operating globally, and based in the UK. Prior to becoming a corporate coach, Joanna worked in investment banking with Citigroup, South Africa, for the most part as a Senior VP, overseeing multinational clients across a number of varied industry sectors. She also managed the international business segment for CEEMEA from Brussels and London, covering 16 industries across 38 countries. Her experience in international business and banking structures has proven an indispensable platform for relating to and understanding the variation of challenges facing her clients.
Using focused and measurable outcomes that are linked to the client’s business objectives and organisational goals, we use integral coaching techniques to help clients develop an understanding of their patterns, unearth latent potential, and learn how to go about using that potential to achieve their desired goals. Ultimately, coaching is a way of working with people so they are able to contribute positively to their organisations and find meaning in what they do.
We provide an effective and sustainable method to grow self-awareness, and enhance executive impact, influence and performance in leadership. We enable individuals to grow flexibility in managing change environments and to increase creativity and strategic planning. Working with us enables development of both individual and team behaviours, as well as the retention of top leadership talent.

One-one coaching between a trained professional coach and a client in a business environment, with the aim of helping the executive become more competent and fulfilled in their career. Executive coaching is a skilful way to develop a leader’s self-awareness – to expand upon how they observe their world, and how their “way of being” affects their impact and influence as a leader.
Coaching tailored specifically around the CEO’s needs. Like every individual, every CEO is different and has a different set of challenges. To understand those challenges, the coach themselves should ideally have specific experience at management level within a corporate environment, and with strong business, industry, and cultural intuition.
Team coaching creates collective awareness around two distinct types of work: taskwork, and teamwork. Sharing, open communication, and building trust in team coaching helps to create a supportive climate where ideas can flourish and take shape. When people feel safe enough to make suggestions or challenge assumptions, we make better, more constructive decisions, collectively, and courageously. Team coaching is tailor made according to your organisation’s specific requirements.
