Jess started her career in finance where she learned about numbers, strategy and leadership. After 10 years in the corporate world, she did a psychology degree; she wanted to understand why some of her bosses were brilliant and others were frankly dismal. Those insights launched a new career facilitating, coaching, designing interventions and writing. Coachees and delegates tell her she’s warm, funny, challenging and rooted in practicality. Most importantly, she believes in using hard, soft, and intuitive information to get to the heart of complex and opaque professional issues.
Tapping into this different knowledge gives fresh insight into how to solve problems, particularly around our worries, work and wellbeing. www.webpsyched.com She’s worked as adjunct faculty in leadership development at many business schools including Cambridge Judge, Cass, Cornell, Chicago Booth, Cranfield, London Business School, and Saïd (Oxford); she’s also a Fellow of Harvard’s Institute of Coaching. Finally, she’s written two books (Happiness at Work: Maximizing Your Psychological Capital for Success and Running Great Meetings & Workshops For Dummies) and she’s trying hard to finish a third, Intuition at Work. When she’s not working, she loves weightlifting and walking her dog in the woods.
