"If you have those emotional competencies - then you are far more likely to have great competitive advantage and be successful".

(#86) Leadership coach Jackie Fitzgerald talks to AICPA & CIMA's Peter Simons about the most vital quality of ‘adaptability’. When businesses need to be Agile for the digital age, personal adaptability is a great place to start. She shares what "emotional capital" is, why it's important, and how it can boost personal career development as well as business prospects



Jackie Fitzgerald has spent the last 9 years coaching hundreds of clients who run their own businesses, or who work at a senior level in professional service firms or the corporate world. Prior to coaching she had a successful career in international telecommunications finance, working for Cable and Wireless plc on major subsea cable and satellite projects, then spent 10 years running successful global joint ventures in the UK, the USA and beyond.  Jackie is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and attended executive development courses at London Business School and INSEAD. She has an MA in Coaching and Mentoring Practice from Oxford Brookes University (2014), a combined Honours degree in French and Spanish from King's College, London, is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and also a keen Liverpool fan.
