Why you should take this workshop

Employees are interrupted 56 times per day. It takes them two hours to recover. That means they spend 60% of their time—or less—being productive.

Whether you're back in the office or managing your team remotely, inspiring your team's productivity can be a challenge. In addition to the given fact that there's always too much to do and too little time to do it, normal human distractions like miscommunication, interpersonal conflict, and anxiety can overtake the wheels of progress.

The good news is that leaders have the ability to promote productivity in many ways, especially when it comes to team dynamics. When positive team interactions increase, people are more open-minded, insightful, creative, and they absorb meaningful information that allows them to perform better in their roles.

About the coach

Joanna is an executive presence coach, workplace psychologist, and fashion stylist who helps women develop transformative leadership skills. Using her engaging and approachable method, Joanna teaches women how to show up with character, confidence, and style.

Joanna earned her M.A. in Social-Organizational Psychology from Columbia University before taking on leadership development roles at Tiffany & Co., JetBlue, and Daily Burn, among others. After accumulating over ten years of leadership development experience in a mix of corporate and start-up settings, she founded Copper + Rise in 2017.

Joanna founded Copper + Rise to teach women what no one teaches them about leadership. Over the years, she’s realized that leveling up in your career isn’t just about what you know. Women also have to look, speak, and act like leaders--and that’s where executive presence comes in. Joanna defines executive presence as how you speak, how you act, and how you look. It’s the style and substance of who you are. Joanna’s background in psychology, leadership development, and fashion styling is the trifecta she brings to this work.

Joanna’s writing and insights on leadership, presence, and style have been featured in RealSimple, HuffPost, Glassdoor, Fairygodboss, Thrive Global, TheLadders, and more.
