Who’s Joyce Layman?
If I told you I deliver information through keynote speaking, professional development training and business coaching, you might put me into the typical buckets, but clients will tell you that the work I do is far from typical because of my unique skill set.
My passion is inspiring people to step out of their current habits and into new opportunities that are already surrounding them. I leverage my extensive experience in the science of mindset and the art of business connections to help my clients create an advantage over their counterparts and competition. Not just theory – I’ve experienced it first hand. I’m a former wallflower in the world of business networking. Speaking in public was my second biggest fear, and like Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory, I was stuck on the proverbial couch. Then I made a BIG shift.
Taking the leap meant growing my business in ways I never imagined including publishing two books, creating online courses and hosting a podcast that hit iTunes New & Noteworthy list two weeks after launch. I’ve shared strategies and tactics on the national stage as well as with private clients since 2008. More than motivation, I’m intent on helping others achieve their ‘next’ in business.
I’m committed to cutting through the hype and do what matters to help clients achieve their next level in business.
Tired of the hearing the same topic in a slightly different way? Then it’s time for keynotes and breakout sessions that provide tactics, motivate and inspire you to take action.
Are you leading a team, in business development, career transition or starting a new venture? A targeted approach gets faster results.
Goals, challenges, and opportunities don’t come in a one-size fits all package. It’s time to get results that are as unique as the challenges you are facing in your business.
After 23 years of non-productive networking, I was fortunate to meet Joyce at what I had determined to be my last networking event. She asked what results I was getting from my efforts. I shared with her that for over two decades, I had provided quality referrals to many and had received very little in return. She said, “I can help you fix the problem and turn your networking into a valuable asset capable of growing your business exponentially.” The fee I paid for her consulting is absolutely the best business development investment I have ever made. My only regret is I didn’t meet her 20 years ago. It is without reservation that I recommend her services to you. Do you and your business a favor…retain her.

ONLINE COURSE OPTIONS
If you are like most people, the courses you’ve taken may have been long on theory, but short on delivery. It’s time to change the paradigm. The IMMEDIATE INFLUENCE and UNSTUCK courses are all about focus, energy, and action. These online courses are available in a 90-day curriculum of modules complete with downloadable tools, resources, “how-to” guides, and so much more. You have access to the modules for a full year. Immediate Influence officially launches June 3rd. Unstuck is close behind.
The Mental Technology of Leadership
The Mental Technology of Leadership course helps organizations, departments, teams, and individuals unleash their potential and increase performance to obtain their desired outcomes.
Change is always happening, it typically happens fast, and often happens all around us. Transition seems to take more time and for the most part takes place inward in both the mind and heart. So the real question is…when change is implemented how well do you and your people transition? Many studies and research, including The Blacnchard Companies “Making Change Stick”, state that 70% of all change initiatives fail. The question is why? The answer is… an insufficient focus on culture, internal resistance, and lack of outside expertise in establishing a formal approach to bring about the desired change.
The Mental Technology of Leadership course is NOT soft positive thinking and “just believing.” The content is based on decades of research in cognitive science and high achievement. It’s designed with real life examples and practical concepts that resonate with the participants both personally and professionally. The course can be facilitated live or via an online course format.

Joyce is a pleasure to work with. She has been instrumental in helping our organization navigate through change. Joyce is an excellent listener and is genuine in helping our organization. She is passionate about her work and she creates energy in the room. I admire her high-quality work and she continuously adds value to our organization.

Just Another Leap
Everything that you are familiar with today was once unfamiliar territory. There was a time where you didn’t know how to walk, talk or read. But you do all of those things effortlessly now. If you took a similar approach to everything else you learn in life, you’d be amazed at how quickly you progress. It starts by learning to leap. Speaking at TEDx allowed me to tell my ‘there to here’ story in 16 minutes. Click on the image to watch the video. You’ll see there’s a perfectly timed technical glitch about 2:45.
You don’t need a net to leap – you just need to leap. The UNSTUCK Course is launching soon. If you’d like to be notified when it’s ready, send me a quick note here.
