Mary Jo Ammon, President of Ammon Consulting LLC, specializes in working with leaders and their teams to optimize their own and their team’s performance. Mary Jo hails from New Jersey, where she started her career helping leaders in Johnson & Johnson operating companies around the world adhere to a corporate set of internal control guidelines and procedures. Mary Jo started working at J&J as the Tylenol crisis was unfolding, and had a front row seat to a master class in leadership, as CEO Jim Burke expertly navigated the complex needs of a broad and diverse set of stakeholders. This experience clarified Mary Jo’s calling to work with leaders in their quest to lead with integrity, nurture employees, and delight customers, all while navigating the myriad requirements levied by a host of stakeholders. Upon relocating to the DC area in 1985, Mary Jo got the opportunity to do just that. Between 1985 and 2004 Mary Jo worked for a single employer under three different letterheads as a result of mergers and acquisitions: Coopers & Lybrand LLP, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, and IBM. During that time, Mary Jo honed her craft, always seeking innovative approaches for enhancing leaders’ satisfaction, effectiveness and outcomes. After three years in a leadership position at Grant Thornton LLP, Mary Jo struck out on her own in 2007 so that she could do more of what she loves, advising and coaching leaders. Mary Jo is a certified coach, and has completed advanced coach training through Newfield Network and George Mason University. She is certified in the use of the Lominger© competency suite and 360 tools, MBTI© and other coaching tools, and is a Leadership Practices Inventory© Certified Coach.
