Josie began her career as a financial analyst and corporate strategic planner in the automotive and finance industries. She has been fascinated by the intersection of strategy, people, process and change ever since. In 1999, she commenced her executive coaching practice that extended into organisational cultural evolution by 2009. During that year Josie also received the global International Coach Federation President's 2009 Award for her contribution as a cofounder of the professional coaching industry in Australasia. Josie's doctoral thesis involved her as an external change agent within a client organisation to understand how an organisation might transform itself to nurture people and planet- just like a person might - from the inside out. She continues to work in the ambiguous space of adaptive learning and change within organisations and communities. Increasingly her work is turning to teaching others what she has learned about complex challenges and how to move forward within them. Josie continues to research and publish as a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Adelaide's Yunus Social Business Centre and is also a co-founder on the global Climate Coaching Alliance initiative.
