What She Does

Josie has 20 years’ experience in the FMCG, pharmaceuticals and medical devices industry where as a board director of Beiersdorf UK she was responsible for maximising revenue and profitability. Her expertise and passion lie in the area of people and organisational development. With a philosophy that an organisation can only reach its full potential through developing and motivating its people. In 2000 Josie started the business consultancy Bruck Payne Associates headquartered in Royal Wootton Bassett. Building on a passion for developing people’s potential, Josie works to create a learning environment that enables individuals to develop existing skills and discover unknown talents; and by doing so, add value to the organisation and themselves. In the area of leadership development, Josie has helped clients understand the leadership qualities required to enable them to realise their company vision, and provided coaching, facilitation and tools such as 360o appraisal to encourage and develop their leadership qualities in line with corporate values.

How She Works

Using tools and techniques such as CBT, Myers Briggs, 16 PF Personality Profile, Emotional Intelligence, Situational Leadership, Hogan BRIGHT and DARK side of personality and Action Learning
(amongst others) she has worked at all levels to help improve the effectiveness of individuals, teams and inter-dependent teams, providing coaching on a one-to-one basis and facilitating group workshops. Josie currently leads a national executive coaching and mentoring group for CEO’s and managing directors called Artemis and Apollo for both women and men who aspire to be the best business leaders in their field. She has coached and facilitated executive, director and middlemanagement teams to manage the introduction of major new cultural change programmes as well as the implementation of Values into realistic
behaviours that organisations rigorously adopt into every aspect of business life. In 2010, Josie instigated the Bringing Performance Alive in Education Programme at sixth form
