Joelle Prochera is an executive coach, speaker, facilitator and consultant committed to bringing humanity, compassion and fun back into the workplace.

Joelle believes that the key to building and maintaining healthy, productive and financially successful organizations is through the caring for and development of people.

Joelle works with leaders and teams to see beyond what constrains them in their situation, to identify what it is they really want and to powerfully go out and get it. She says, "From a place of true leadership, a person can take total responsibility for their situation, their results and their experience of work and life. With this ownership and responsibility for one's own situation comes immense power to go after and achieve your desired results."

Joelle's core value is authenticity. She believes that "it is only when we bring our whole selves to work that we can lead with ease, joy and an unprecedented level of success." She says, "Often, really showing up as yourself seems risky. It requires you to be vulnerable, to be real and be open to having the difficult conversations. However, it is through being fully expressed that you can become a masterful leader who produces extraordinary results."

Through coaching, Joelle's clients have reported a "significantly increased comfort and confidence in [their] leadership role", the ability to "face potential conflict situations without becoming defensive or working from ulterior motives", "decreased personal stress" and "increased self confidence... leading to quicker decision making and more effective communication."
