As an Independent Executive Director at The John Maxwell Team, I am Certified as an Executive Coach, Teacher and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.
I am the founder of Joan Lugards Consultancy Services, a leadership consulting, training/speaking and talent management company. My drive for leadership awareness has been driven by the maxim that everybody is born with a leadership trait. However, becoming a leader with influence is what inspires me and it is on the strength of this that I agree with John C. Maxwell that if you don’t have influence, you will never be able to lead others. An effective leader’s influence impacts greatly on the followers as it brings about transformation and change, and this translates to development and growth in the organization.
My zeal to help others find their “you” and chart the right course in life led me to join the John Maxwell Team. Prior to this, I spent over 17 years working in the financial sector in Nigeria, working with a global bank, as a leader in customer service, bank operations, product, sales and marketing. Working with people of diversity propelled me to pursue a Masters degree in International Human Resource Management as well as a professional certification of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in the United Kingdom.
My focus is to help you add value to yourself and others in your organization by daring to make your dreams become your reality. I love to teach and train people. There is nothing I love more than to see the joy in people’s faces when their desires and dreams become achievable goals.
