Joanna (Asia) Jarosz, PhD
Center for Coaching Effectiveness
Joanna Jarosz holds an M.A. in economics from the University of Minnesota and a PhD in Social Sciences from the University of Silesia. Her primary research interest includes the effectiveness of coaching and the application of coaching in enhancing well-being and performance in the workplace. She is a thought-leader and has authored many scientific publications in the field of coaching.
Asia’s model for assessing the effectiveness of coaching, the Cube of Coaching Effectiveness, offers unlimited possibilities to organizations, coaches, and clients alike. In both her academic research and professional life, she brings together the practice and the science of coaching. Asia has worked in the fast-paced tech industry for nearly a decade, and as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coaching Federation, she has helped numerous people grow as coaches and as managers.
Asia’s other passion is music; she plays the cello and sings. She lives with her husband and three-year-old son, Taiyo (sun in Japanese), in Barcelona, Spain, just walking distance from the beach. Her family and friends, their outdoor lifestyle, and proximity to the sea, keeps Asia’s days filled with love and gratitude.
