Jessica Pryce-Jones started her career in finance where she learned about numbers, strategy, and leadership. After 10 years in the corporate world, she earned a psychology degree; wanting to understand why some of her bosses were brilliant and others were frankly dismal. Those insights launched a new career in facilitating, coaching, designing interventions, and writing.

She believes in using hard, soft, and intuitive information to get to the heart of complex and opaque professional issues. Tapping into this different knowledge gives fresh insight into how to solve problems, particularly around our worries and our work.

Her clients include multinationals in healthcare, professional services, FMCG, banking, creative, education, manufacturing, publishing, and engineering industries as well as the public and not-for-profit sectors.

She’s also worked as adjunct faculty in leadership development at many business schools including Cambridge Judge, Cass, Cornell, Chicago Booth, Cranfield, London Business School, and Saïd (Oxford); and is a Fellow of Harvard’s Institute of Coaching. She’s published two books ( Happiness at Work: Maximizing Your Psychological Capital for Success and Running Great Meetings & Workshops For Dummies) and her new book, Intuition At Work will be released in Summer 2024.

She lives in France and the UK but works all over the world.
