About Us

Jo has a passion to see people thrive and grow in their work, to support those in leadership to be authentic in their leadership style and develop healthy organisations where employees are engaged, valued and ultimately fulfilled! Jo’s background and experience working in the public, private and latterly the Charity sector in leadership teams has served to convince her of the importance of supporting organisational health and a positive culture for growth and success.

Growth will inevitably take leaders on a journey that exposes vulnerabilities, Courage Coaching recognises the importance of this process and supports the individual and organisation to navigate these to move forward with confidence and courage.

Jo is an Executive Coach accredited by the Academy of Executive Coaching. Jo set up Courage Coaching in 2016 following 12 years working in Education.

Leading well takes courage.

Courage Coaching can support you in your leadership role …the agenda is yours, the programme is designed collaboratively.

What business owners say

about their time with us:

“I was at a junction in my life – I’d just been made redundant from a role I’d been in for 5 years and become increasingly unhappy with. I didn’t want to leap into something else and make another mistake, but was really struggling to identify what was important to me and what I needed out of a job, and how it tied into my happiness in general.

I was introduced to Courage Coaching by a friend and although I have been sceptical about the value of coaching in the past was impressed by the professional way we rapidly set up the first meeting, and how the sessions panned out. An hour and a half of reflection is something I never would have tried before but Jo Ibbott led me on a great journey to a better level of understanding of who I am and what I need. Through some great insight into what I was telling her, practical exercises and being a wonderful sounding board I have prioritised those things which are really important to me and understand what underpins who I really am.

Following our sessions I feel empowered through better personal clarity to consider carefully future roles that are being offered to me and I am looking at some exciting new ventures that will play to my strengths, and provide a better balance in my life. Without Jo I believe I could have ended up “sticking to what I knew”, and being in the same place in a few years time.

Thank you for your help Jo, and I do miss our sessions.”
