“Jo is, professionally, a very powerful coach, consultant and advisor, in addition to being a very pleasant person to have around”
She manages to have strong impact; firstly, through her natural charisma, accessibility and openness. Secondly, she facilitates the board room process from a kind of “sideline” approach, but clearly stepping in when the flow of the process requires this. Thirdly, Jo clearly senses how well or not team dynamics are going, which forms the basis of her flexibility to adjust programs to best fit the given situation. All this is supported by academic and practical experiences with state of the art coaching and consulting concepts. Jo assisted the Management Team of DFE Pharma to move to the next level of sophistication in team working in a very diverse and multicultural environment.

“Jo was able to set up programs in which the discussed and agreed individual goals were trained”
After intensive and open intake sessions, Jo was able to set up programs in which the discussed and agreed individual goals were trained in group sessions AND whereby all persons were convinced about a personal approach to each of them!
“I had changed for the better”
Every encounter with Jo was a fantastic moment to take a step back and reflect in a way that I did not get around to during my daily work. The great thing is that during my year of coaching with Jo, my team and my surroundings noticed that I had changed for the better.

Jo is an outstanding senior coach, facilitator and leadership expert. She offers a space in which people feel immediately trusting and supported simply because of her exceptional presence. In addition, Jo is a highly qualified executive coach who naturally has the ability to bridge different worlds. By doing so she unleashes the potential of individuals, teams and organizations.

“I look back at an intense learning process with sessions that continue to have impact a long time afterwards”
Starting from a loving and inquisitive attitude, Jo joined me in a process of discovery. As a coach, I experience her as clear and focused as well as empathic. She works deeply from the inside out. Her humour and provocative questions holds up a mirror and challenge me. Her deeply effective techniques help me expand my awareness making unconscious processes become conscious. I look back at an intense learning process with sessions that continue to have impact a long time afterwards.

“She does not intervene when it’s not necessary, and lets people steer the process themselves which has a much greater impact and people feel ownership of the outcome.”
Jo has a powerful way of working because she trusts in people and is able to tap into the groups own power and resources. She does not intervene when it’s not necessary, and lets people steer the process themselves which has a much greater impact and people feel ownership of the outcome. This greatly contributes to more permanent and lasting results.
By being open to the themes that come up in the moment of coaching, and then by flexibly responding, Jo ensures that the underlying core issues that really matter are addressed. She finds the right balance between reason and emotion, and between reflection and engagement. Jo knows how to harness people’s energy during the coaching sessions and can engage and inspire participants in the process.

“And also, good fun!”
Confrontational, compelling, and cuts straight to the core. And also, good fun! Most important to me are the results I have achieved in my development areas. Being coached by Jo felt like I had a ‘tailor-made suit’, while many other programmes I have experienced as standard ‘off-the-peg suits’.
“Jo has a beautiful way of walking beside those she serves during challenging and uncertain times”
Jo Boniszewski is a gifted transformational coach and facilitator. What sets her apart from many others are her deep insight and awareness, and her broad capacities for both intuitive and intellectual understanding. She is open and welcoming, delightful and often playful. At the same time, she brings a powerful, grounding, and supportive presence. Jo has a beautiful way of walking beside those she serves during challenging and uncertain times, empowering them to stand in their own strengths and find clarity and resilience for the way forward. She has a remarkable sense of when to gently yet firmly take charge, and then when to disappear into the background at just the right moment.
I've worked with Jo in multiple capacities over the last few years and always look forward to the next opportunity. She listens, senses, and perceives beyond the obvious and can quickly cut to the essence of what is happening. Jo deeply understands that transformation within an individual, a team, or an organization happens from the core of who they are, what they believe, and how they think. Therefore, she works from the inside out, creating a space that encourages powerful and lasting shifts. She calls forth the best from all she serves.
If you are ready to work from the inside out and to take big steps forward, I highly recommend Jo Boniszewski.

“Jo was able to pull us back where needed, adjusting the process if required and in a very pleasant gentle way still move the whole team towards the necessary goals”
When working with Jo on preparation of Leadership Team sessions, her knowledge of team- and individual processes were immediately clear and resulted in the use of models which have proven to get us results. Next to this Jo’s skills in listening, analyzing and managing what happens within such sessions were of great added value. She really is able to hear, feel and see what is going on and asks the right questions to make us think and reflect. She was able to pull us back where needed, adjusting the process if required and in a very pleasant gentle way still move the whole team towards the necessary goals.

“Combining conversations with exercises encourages me to look further than just the initial consequences of my actions”
Jo creates a personal atmosphere where I can have all the space I need to cut to the core. Her professional approach allows me to feel comfortable quickly. Combining conversations with exercises encourages me to look further than just the initial consequences of my actions. Jo capitalizes on my own strength and potential. Her way of working helps me to discover answers outside of my own thought patterns. This is sometimes an uncomfortable process, but it always stays in the boundaries that I give.
The coaching process enabled me to establish direction during a turbulent period. Testing ideas and receiving feedback and inspiration from someone who was solely thinking of my own interests has helped me to make choices without burdening my environment. This allowed me to head into a well-considered new direction, while maintaining the confidence and the support of the people around me.
