Discover your Great Spirit – it’s a way of Being

“For as long as I can remember, my passion has always been people – to help people grow and develop.  I’ve always had the gift of seeing potential in people and in fact, for along time, I believed everyone could do this whereas as now I understand it is something that makes me unique.”

Jo Hutchinson Founder Great Spirit NZ

Can you imagine how incredibly rewarding it is to see tomorrows leaders in action today, not only following their passions, but leading with heart and focussed on creating positive change in our world?

If you feel compelled to make a positive difference in this world, then I’d love to help you succeed.” Jo Hutchinson Founder Great Spirit NZ

My life’s work has involved holding different leadership roles in corporate New Zealand where I’ve loved working with people from all walks of life and all ages.  I then stepped out of the corporate world and into the world of small business and learnt what it takes to succeed.  On my journey, I travelled to Egypt and South America experiencing first hand the local culture, understanding the people, the poverty, their issues and their entrepreneurial spirit.  This enabled me to deepen my understanding not only of myself, but of all people and enterprise.

These days, I work as a freelance Coach, Mentor and Facilitator with a special interest in Leadership  – helping to seed our next generation of leaders.

We are each born with a unique potential and a specific purpose.  Some people know from a very young age what it is and for others it is a process of discovery.  It matters not what age you are, but that the seed lies dormant within, waiting for the right time to burst open.

My work as a Coach, Mentor or a Facilitator is all about helping you discover your purpose, then live it so that you can contribute your unique potential to create positive change in our world.  I focus on Women as Leaders, our Emerging Leaders, Change Makers and Budding Entrepreneurs.  If you feel compelled to make a positive difference in this world, then I’d love to help you succeed.” Jo Hutchinson Founder Great Spirit NZ

Discover Your Great Spirit

Igniting your Great SpiritWe live in exciting times where change and growth are everyday occurrences.  Navigating life with its many twists and turns can be an exhilarating journey as we discover and learn about ourselves as we go.  Discover your Great Spirit is the inner journey of remembering and re-claiming your inner wisdom and true potential so you can joyously express it out in the world.  Discovering your purpose is one thing – actively living it is another. It takes courage, commitment and inspired action to live it.  Your contribution is important.  Your skills, talents, passions and abilities make you unique and the world needs what you offer and the difference you can make.


Live Your Life Purpose

Finding your PurposeEveryone has a unique purpose and something unique to offer and contribute to the world.  When you live your greater purpose, you will feel an unlimited supply of passion, motivation and inspiration to fuel your life.  There will of course be challenges along the way and these are simply designed to help you grow and evolve.  It takes courage and commitment  to live fearlessly, to embrace the life of your dreams and make a positive difference on this planet.  Discover your purpose, then make a plan to live it day by day.

You Can Make a Difference

Change and GrowthIt is no longer enough to think about ourselves.  We must take a collective responsibility to address the issues we face on the planet today to restore balance, harmony and peace. Everyone has the right to be treated equally, with love, and respect.  We are each a thread of a much larger tapestry, something much bigger than ourselves.  Everything is connected and the journey in life is to remember and re-claim our inner wisdom and live life from the heart.

The ancients knew how to live in peace and harmony with the Earth and today, many of our indigenous people still live by these truths.  They understand the inter-connectedness of all things and can hear the voice of spirit in all things.  The time is now to bridge the wisdom of the ages to life today on our planet and create our future Earth with a higher vision of love, peace, harmony, joy and well-being for all.

Live your purpose – that is the  journey.  It’s time to step up to this age of change, to contribute to the greater good, to remember who you are and why you are here, to be at ONE with the Earth and all that reside on it and to use your talents and skills in ways that make a difference.  One person can make a difference – Be that One.

Jo Hutchinson is passionate about people and their growth.  She is a Personal Growth Coach, a Leadership Mentor and Facilitator of Change.  She helps people unlock their potential, feel empowered to live life with passion and purpose.  What are you waiting for?  Create the life you are destined to live now.

I loved my sessions with Jo. She is a highly skilled, perceptive, clear facilitator. Jo gently guided each session in a way which allowed me to gain some powerful insights regarding my thinking and behaviour in a particular area of my life. As a result I was able to make powerful changes. This has made an amazing difference to my life! I wholeheartedly recommend her.

I would like to sincerely thank you for your support and guidance to help me through me recent difficult moments. Prior to seeing you I was “stuck”, and overwhelmed – in relation to matters of great significance and importance in my life. Through your coaching, you provided me with a very clear perspective, and helped me to formulate a plan.

Thank you so much for your energy, input and encouragement. I really enjoyed the session and I am amazed how much it has helped on day 1. I wore blue today and have just completed my CV and sent it off for a role I saw a week ago. Thank you again and I will keep you posted.
