"It was both a pleasure and honor to work with Josie Aquino. I had the opportunity to attend a Motivational Interviewing seminar that Ms. Aquino facilitated. She is a dynamic trainer, teacher, and facilitator; keeping all participants engaged as we learned how to better obtain information from our members as well as how we could better utilize these skills in our everyday lives. She was also able to analyze the data regarding our strengths and weakness as a team and then assist in teambuilding to encourage and push each individual to the next level."
"Josie Aquino consulted for our company for 18 months, managing a major overhaul of a critical area at my company and supporting several other major infrastructure projects pertaining to our clinical areas. Ms. Aquino provided both technical expertise and management coaching. Josie is a self-starter who is extremely knowledgeable regarding organizational culture, managed health care, behavioral health, care management, motivational interviewing and analytics. She is detail-oriented and accountable. Josie is well organized, communicates flawlessly, and provides consumable and diverse methods for sharing of critical information. She also provides follow-up, demonstrating the effectiveness of executed interventions. Josie works well with and is very well received by all whom she encounters. Ms. Aquino is a consummate professional- punctual, well prepared, of good temperament with a natural executive presence. Without reservation, I would readily engage her in future projects and for future needs, especially regarding management and executive leadership coaching. She is and will remain an integral part of my professional network and resources."
"Josie’s discipline and natural leadership qualities is an inspiration to all she comes into contact with. It’s no surprise to see how Josie has become such a successful and effective coach. I had the pleasure to be coached by Josie. She equipped me with the tools to unleash my potential, work towards illuminating self-defeating thoughts and habits. Since then I have re-branded my jewelry business and it’s been my most successful business endeavor to date."
"I coached with Josie when I was really stuck about a situation in my life. She was strong and yet supportive with me and I felt like I could explore what I needed to move forward in the situation. I also loved her sense of humor and warmth. I am so grateful for the work Josie did with me. It really helped me change a major direction in my life."
"J. Aquino has all of the qualifications of a prolific coach and advisor. In my observation she's been tremendous in identifying problems and bringing the right groups together for the best resolution. While working with her on a number of projects, within our organization, she was able to effectively manage her regular duties while rallying her teams support to help us become NCQA accredited. I welcome the opportunity to work side by side with her again. A true leader she is."
"Josefina (Josie) Aquino was referred to me at a time when I was facing great challenges. I was new to my position, the politics were stifling and the staff very set in their ways. Josie worked with me/coaching and with the staff/challenging and mentoring. The outcome, for me, was better than I could have expected. She helped me frame issues I was grappling with and then coached me how to approach the issues in a positive, pleasant, and proactive way. She formed workgroups and won the respect of the staff who, in turn, were willing to expose the major barriers to enhancing the internal environment and bringing improvements to work processes. Together, Josie, the associates and myself formed a bond that enabled more change to occur than might otherwise. Josie has a presence that exudes positive thinking; she is assertive but in a way that is challenging yet kind. I would recommend her to anyone for facilitation, team building and/or business planning."
"Without a doubt Josie is a talented and skilled consultant. In my recent experience working with Josie, she brought thoughtful yet critical thinking to a complex project. She engaged a diverse project team effectively and efficiently to ensure problem solving achieved project goals and was delivered on time."
