About Joyce





                                   Joyce Leonard   

Based on a 25-year Gallup Organization study of over 1 million employees and 80,000 managers in over 400 companies, it is found that:

bulletTalented employees need GREAT managers
bulletTalented employees may join a company because of it's CEO, its generous benefits, and world class training programs, but how long that employee stays and how productive s/he is while there is determined by the relationship with his/her immediate boss
bulletThe most valuable aspect of a manager's job is in creating and building relationships with their employees

Effective communication is key to achieving bottom line business results, customer satisfaction, and    employee retention.  In my twenty-two years in a Fortune 500 company, I have seen some managers and leaders move mountains and others drown entire organizations—all due to how they communicate.

I will work with you to improve your communication skills, style, and format, engage and motivate your teams and employees, have better working relationships with your teammates, and increase your overall effectiveness and productivity. 

My skills and expertise are delivered through a variety of formats: one-on-one  coaching (in-person or over the telephone), team meetings, group facilitation, seminars and workshops, and speaking engagements.  All my coaching and presentations are customized to meet your specific needs.  Here are my specialties:
