Professional Resilience Coaching


What Forward-Facing ® Means to Joel:


My journey with Forward-Facing® started in 2021 as part of an Executive Coaching program that my employer sponsored.  In the moments since Forward-Facing® has changed how I approach both my professional and personal life.  It has provided the awareness, the ability to recognize and the tools to regulate.  Once I experienced this process of Professional Resilience and every benefit that it has to offer I knew I needed to share this gift with others.


Coaching with Joel:


Joel Riley is a Certified Forward-Facing® Professional Resilience Coach.  He is a Human Resource and Labor Relations executive with over twenty-four years of experience in leading, coaching and managing all levels of organizations.  He specializes in helping staff through burnout and processing through the difficult and often traumatic events that professionals in this field are helping with everyday.  In addition Joel specializes in and offers Executive Coaching, Career Planning, and Negotiating with Common Sense & Care.  As a seasoned Human Resources leader Joel understands the complex demands and challenges that are part of everyday life.  Joel has served in roles for twenty years in public state government, followed by experience in non-profit, private sector and now full time consulting.  In addition he served as an adjunct professor for over eighteen years at the University of New Haven, in their HR & Labor Relations department.  Currently Joel is a Sr. Executive HR Consultant at Humareso, an HR Consulting FIrm with clients based all over the United States.


Additionally Joel has a unique perspective and awareness around teen suicide and prevention.  After losing his fifteen year old son in 2017 he has made it his life’s goal to offer help in this area.  He believes firmly that the tools that Forward-Facing® offers to professionals can and should also be applied to teens to offer them coping and regulating tools in their tool box as they navigate their often difficult and challenging lives.  Forward-Facing® Teens is a model that Joel hopes to offer schools, teen suicide prevention programs, and youth organizations in the coming months.
