Joy believes in supporting people to help them pursue their missions in life. After spending 30 years in technology and becoming an expert in the field, Joy decided to switch to consulting. Meeting a kindred spirit with a similar career path, Cathy Tompkins,  led to the establishment of Foreword, a company that offers leadership development, executive coaching and strategy consulting to help companies and their employees adapt, learn, and prepare for what comes next. 

How does Foreword help people?

Foreword Consulting aims to coach clients into being the best they can be in whatever path they choose, Joy explains. For companies in a state of transition, Foreword’s interim leadership management services help enterprises get an edge over the industry and achieve desired results. 

In short, she says, Foreword helps people—and businesses—move forward. 

Foreword’s foundation is based on three main pillars: executive coaching, leadership development, and strategy consulting. The firm also works with executives seeking to boost their confidence, meet the moment and prepare for the future. 

Joy says her consultancy aims to be the most reliable guide for businesses looking to fill in growth and leadership gaps, and for individuals seeking to level up their careers, Foreword provides the sort of coaching that makes all the difference.

Is career transition a challenge?

It is normal or common to be hesitant to try something new but that is the only way to realize your full potential, Joy explains, because you already have your previous experience within your scope to back you up. “So try something new,” she advises. “Until you try something new, you will never be able to (fully realize) your inherent talents.
