“I have known Josie for some nine years and have had nothing but positive experiences with her. She coached me the first time we met and I was very impressed by her insight, her skill and her persistence. She has won several awards for her coaching. She has the very unusual ability to be able to complete a large number of coaching sessions in a day without tiring or fading.
On the personal side she is a very good mother of two great children and her people skills are outstanding. She is also extremely bright, quick on the uptake and worldly wise, and I have no doubt that she will be an asset to any program.
Since all the things I want to say about Josie are superlatives, I thought I should add some weakness to show that my view is balanced. The truth is that I can find nothing about her to criticize.
If anyone deserves to be called a Master Coach it is Josie Thomson, except she is very feminine. I have known her for many years and she has coached me on a number of occasions very successfully, and I am no push over. She is challenging, tough and persistent in the most gentle and caring way. I have grown much from working with her. Furthermore she really enjoys coaching people and devotes an inordinate amount of her time doing so without getting bored or stale.
When coaches really genuinely enjoy coaching, they give of their very best and Josie does just that. I would trust her with my vulnerabilities any day.”
