Joy Poole is a Fast Forward coach who helps leaders to identify, articulate and GET what they truly want out of their careers and lives. In order to achieve this, Joy guides clients to use their own curiosity to gain clarity on their values and whole life vision, to remove barriers, and to identify opportunities and plans to pursue their BIG goals and dreams.
Throughout her 20 years in tech, consulting, sales, and executive leadership, Joy has developed a deep conviction that success comes when we are clear and bold in our goals, but focused and curious (rather than fearful) in the process. This belief has led her to speak and write extensively on related topics including Exponential vs Incremental Thinking, Techposter Syndrome™, and utilizing curiosity to overcome your inner critic.
Joy is trained in coaching by the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching and is a practitioner of the Energy Leadership Index. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and Executive Programme certificates from the University of Oxford and the London School of Economics.
Besides coaching, speaking and entrepreneuring, other activities that fill Joy up include pilates, running, travel and generally trying new things as much as possible. Joy, her husband, and their 5-year-old son call London home.
