Joanne Newlund

Coach / Facilitator

Joanne Newlund is a coach and facilitator at Mission Facilitators. She works to help individual leaders and their teams understand, use, and perfect their leadership and leading teams and companies’ creative side. Joanne has advanced training in executive coaching, emotional intelligence, and has owned and lead several successful businesses. At Mission Facilitators, she is a senior associate with experience in coaching and facilitating team-building training for small to large companies, such as Microsoft, Boeing, Parker Aerospace, San Marco Unified School District, ExxonMobil, HonorHealth, Salt River Project, and Geiger-Cribbins.

Joanne’s belief matches McKinsey and Company’s 10-year global study of senior knowledge workers that found employees who spend the most time trusting their intuition and experiencing the creative state of “flow” are up to five times more effective than their counterparts.

Joanne’s three-part process overlays her coaching, speaking, and training.

1. Discovering. Getting to ‘root-cause’ by listening and asking probing questions,

2. Preparing. Developing game plans for her clients,

3. Leading. Reframing and suggesting new approaches.

Joanne speaks on leadership, using intuition in decision-making and team building. She has traveled worldwide and led or owned companies in healthcare, design, and home construction. She spends most of her time now in Bend, Oregon, or Phoenix, Arizona.
