Discovering self-imposed limits


​“The questions I was asked about my business and life were quite challenging and sent me on some real soul-searching. It was an interesting process to uncover some of the root causes of my attitudes. Once I had recognized these root causes, I had a springboard to confront my inner fears and self-imposed limits.”






"I look forward, with excitement, to continuously grow. Thank you for your patience, your preparation, your skilled insight, your inventiveness, and your creativity.”




A new perspective


“My challenge now will be to continue the good work that Joan has initiated, by setting myself new goals and assessing them continuously. I now have the ability to be able to ask people for feedback, which gives me an ongoing outsider’s perspective.”




Absolutely invaluable


“Joan is an inspirational coach, who has an excellent knowledge of the recruitment process.  Her professional experience meant that she quickly identified what skills I had that were most pertinent to the roles I applied for, which reduced my stress. She did an excellent job of working with me to significantly upgrade my resume and to prepare a customised cover letter. As a consequence, I felt confident approaching the interview process and was successful in the two applications that I applied for. Her ongoing support was absolutely invaluable.”





An excellent outplacement methodology


“I would thoroughly recommend Joan Flatt for her services in staff outplacement. Outplacement, by its very nature, results in a situation where the very staff you are aiming to care for are outside the organisation’s reach. Joan was able to gain the trust and confidence of parties on both sides of the relationship. She was able to reassure managers that their people were in good hands, and also gain the trust of outplaced staff that she would be working in their interests and that she would be able to help them to find a pathway forward. Joan was able to motivate and influence the managers and outplaced staff to trust in her methodology. In the end, all parties were happy with the results as the outplaced staff have moved into different roles with a new professional focus.”
