Joanna Lovering is an executive presence coach, workplace psychologist, and fashion stylist. For over 15 years she has developed talent strategies, facilitated management courses, and coached emerging leaders through c-suite executives to show up in every room with character, confidence, and style. She brings her redheaded spunk, empowering enthusiasm, and caring heart to her work. Areas of expertise include program design and facilitation, emotional intelligence-based leadership coaching, executive presence, communications consulting, and public speaking. Her work is heavily influenced by neuroscience and group dynamics research.
Joanna earned her BHA in drama direction and psychology from Carnegie Mellon University, and MA in social-organizational psychology from Columbia University. She has held leadership development roles at Tiffany & Co., JetBlue, and Daily Burn, among others. She founded her own executive presence coaching firm in 2017.
Joanna’s writing and insights on leadership, presence, and style have been featured in RealSimple, Fast Company, HerMoney, HuffPost, The Muse, Glassdoor, Fairygodboss, TheLadders, and more. She spends the majority of her discretionary funds on Broadway and off-Broadway shows, travel, and shoes. She also plays piano, sings her heart out at karaoke (her go-to song is “Eye of the Tiger”), and loves all creatures of the furry kind. Fun fact: her graduate education at Columbia University was paid for with a merit scholarship and royalties from a principal role in a series of national commercials.
