JL Work Solutions Ltd was founded by Business Psychologists Julie Wacker BA (Hons) MSc and Laura Chard BA (Hons) FCIM MSc. Their expertise and approach to helping people at work is based on being grounded in both business and psychology. In addition to 30 years collective commercial experience, Julie and Laura each hold a Master's degree in Organisational Psychology from the University of Manchester and level A and B psychometric testing qualifications for the British Psychological Society registration.
Julie understands the motivational challenges of the sales role after having worked in sales in the technology and telecommunications industry. She uses her experience and expertise to work with organisations to ensure their sales people are equipped to deal with the specific challenges of a sales role. Julie's fresh approach to sales training uses solid psychological principles to develop resilience in sales people and to increase and maintain high levels of sales performance.
Laura has a background in marketing working with organisations such as BT, Manpower and LEGO. As a senior executive, Laura gained an understanding of the business environment and the importance of people's character for success. With a specific interest in integrity within the workplace, Laura provides insight to this characteristic and how leadership progression requires a growth in personal attributes as much as talents, skills and abilities.

We believe that skills are only part of the story of success at work. A fundamental part of success is an individual's attitude and behaviour. Our ethos is to encourage individuals to generate exceptional results through specific personal character awareness, attitude and behavioural change.
- It is as much about 'who' you are as to 'what' you do at work.
- Maintaining success after achieving it requires more than the skills you have.
- You can 'learn' the 'way you think'.
- You can achieve results you didn't think possible.
