Joanne Brem
Executive Coach, Facilitator, and Consultant

Joanne is a leadership consultant and executive coach who brings over 15 years of expertise and experience to the field of organizational leadership development and effectiveness. Her prior business background is distinguished by 17+ years of great success selling in the information technology industry with Amdahl Corporation (now Fujitsu Computer Systems), Honeywell Information Systems and Burroughs Corporation (now Unisys). As a top performer in these extremely fast-paced, competitive environments, she learned and integrated into practice the principles, dynamics and skills of developing long-term relationships built on trust and delivering consistent results, while inspiring an environment of optimal creativity and collaborative teamwork to make it happen - all which intrinsically informs her coaching approach. Since 2006, she has served on the executive coaching faculty for the annual Global Institute for Leadership Development (GILD), and is a learning team leader for the annual Women In Leadership (WIL) Summit, both produced by Linkage, Inc. For seven years, she facilitated a monthly CEO business advisory roundtable for a SF Bay Area Chapter of the Women Presidents' Organization, a membership organization for women CEO's and/or owners of second-stage entrepreneurial companies (revenues of $2-50M).

Coaching: Joanne coaches Directors to C-Level, helping them cultivate the inner mindset and develop key skills and strategies needed to sustain peak levels of creativity, innovation and productivity while effectively driving needed changes throughout their organizations.

Her areas of expertise include cultivating authentic executive presence, effective influence across the organization and building long-term strategic partnerships, developing big picture and systems thinking, leadership communication, conducting crucial conversations and resolving conflict, strategic planning and execution, and executive transition.
