“Joyel is a breath of fresh air! I invited Joyel to provide group training on the topic of Management vs. Leadership and she did an amazing job and shared so many valuable gems and strategies. I have also had the pleasure of working with Joyel one-on-one for executive coaching and I found her to be kind, gracious, intuitive, to the point and reaffirming. She taps into the answers and solutions that are already within you. I highly recommend her for speaking engagements, leadership/executive training, and coaching. I wish Joyel continued success!”

What People Say About Us
D. Williams Adams
“Dynamic. Poignant. Approachable. Joy. Those are the first words that come to mind when I think of Joyel. I had the honor of seeing Joyel speak at the Society for Foodservice & Hospitality Management’s national conference in late 2021. Her strong messages on mentorship & culture, and drive & ambition, were delivered with grace, compassion — it’s like she was able to meet people exactly where they were on their journey. That must be because Joyel is unafraid to share her own journey — no matter if the direction isn’t a straight line — maybe especially because it wasn’t a straight line. Joyel gave hope for making small, deliberate, and intentional changes that over time, make a big impact. I truly feel lucky our paths crossed — and plan to stay engaged with her other business services beyond speaking. She’s that good!”
“Joyel delivered an impeccable presentation at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Prior to this encounter, I’d never heard Joyel speak, but was impressed by her digital presence and resume…SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Not only was she punctual and professional, she was also relatable and funny with anecdotes and real-life experiences. Her talk was centered on tackling goals and staying consistent. The entire enterprise was invited to the event and it was a major success. I could not be more grateful for the high caliber presentation that Joyel provided, and any company would be lucky to have her speak to their team.”
“What can I say about Joyel that most people don’t know. PWNC Foundation was very fortunate to have her be a part of our 6 series workshop. Like the leader she is, she came and delivered on the topic of Leadership. Joyel and PWNC have been wanting to work together for a while and we are so glad that we were able to have her be a part of an awesome group of women. If you are looking for someone in the expertise of LEADERSHIP, look no further you found her. I look forward to working with this amazing woman again. BTW, Joyel came to PWNC’s very first event over 2 1/2 years ago, if that isn’t loyalty I don’t know what is. Thank you Joyel for being a part of the PWNC community. Continue to rise!”
Joyel is awesome, inspiring, and motivating. If you’re down on your job search and don’t know where to go, she can help!
Joyel has worn many hats for me – first a colleague then career coach. She is optimistic, practical, inspiring, insightful, tactful, discerning and endlessly surprising but if I had to pick a single word, it would be: impressive. I’ve been consistently blown away by her suggestions during my career struggles. If I pose a question to Joyel, then afterwards I always am confident that I have “The Answer”.
Big shifts wrapped up in Bite size doses! Joyel helped me prepare for an interview by showing me how my CURRENT skills were TRANSFERABLE to areas where I felt that I was lacking. She also helped me realize that CO-WORKERS don’t always see all of your STRENGTHS, you have to SHOW them HOW & WHY you are the perfect person for the JOB! Thank you Joyel for helping me see past my limiting beliefs.
If you are looking for a career coach that is willing to help you grow, provide challenging homework assignments (…and yes, they are extremely effective!), hold you accountable for your progress, serve as your number one cheerleader and is easy to reach and work with, then I would highly recommend Joyel Crawford!
If you are seeking help with updating your resume, preparing for an interview, or just general career coaching, look no further. At the end of 2017, Joyel helped me refresh my resume and more recently provided coaching as I attempt to make a transition in my career. She explained how I can capitalize on my various skill sets and work experience. I now have the confidence to move forward with pursuing career opportunities. Joyel is a gem to work with and I’m so glad I found her.
I scoured the internet, I took a chance, and am truly glad that I did. I had a phone screen one week. Two interviews in one day, and was informed that I was hired the next day. I will definitely stay in touch with her service!
