Once you understand the history, traits, and culture of each generation, you can then better speak each generation’s language, which builds rapport and trust. The result? Higher sales, improved bottom-line results, and increased employee retention.
There are big changes coming to the American workforce. In order to survive and thrive in the very different workplace of tomorrow, organizations need to know, plan and stay in front of these changes.
Today leaders and managers need winning strategies to avoid the costly pitfalls of high turnover, low morale, and poor collaboration—not to mention the high costs of missed deadlines and incomplete projects.
Powerful leaders know how to listen. Inquiry and listening improve collaboration. When a leader increases her questions-to-statements ratio, she automatically empowers the employee to find an innovative solution on his own.

Transformational Leadership & The Future of Work
Let’s talk about muffins – blueberry muffins, banana nut muffins, apple muffins – and the thud they make as they hit the compost bin, since these particular muffins are rock hard. I should back up. I left the Ivy League for culinary school years ago to become a chef. During my nine years as a […]
Today, I’d like you to join me at brunch, my favorite meal. Before you start salivating over the idea of a Croque Monsieur, I should tell you that you’ll be joining me in the kitchen. Not just any kitchen—the kitchen of a busy restaurant. If you’ve been reading my series on leadership lessons I learned […]
Leadership Lessons from the Kitchen: How to Prevent Difficult Communication from Burning Your Fingers
I would never have guessed at the time, but leaving the Ivy League to go to culinary school gave me the opportunity to learn a lot about leadership. I recently shared four of the lessons I learned as a chef and the response was overwhelming. Since my lessons seem to have hit a nerve, I […]
I found Anne to be a skilled, careful listener. She was able to bring an impressive set of tools, experiences and perspectives to my work in an extremely focused and concrete way. I deeply appreciated Anne’s follow-up between our coaching sessions. She always remembered even the smallest details of our conversations from one session to the next. I feel as though, through the coaching I did with Anne, that I have new-found abilities and frameworks that have made me more successful and productive.- Rabbi Bradley Solmsen, Director of Youth Engagement, The Union for Reform Judaism
Anne is like an athletic coach for leaders. As an ex-competitive swimmer, my coach used to tell me what I was doing wrong, share a different perspective, and work with me to improve my time. We paid attention to start, strokes, turns, breathing and competitors. Like my swim coach, Anne made me aware of blind spots. She forced me to look in the mirror and know myself better, highlighted areas to improve, helped me develop a progress plan, and kept me focused. The bonus? She likes to celebrate short wins and keeps it fun!
Anne has the ability to take a no-win situation and turn it into an opportunity for her client to grow both professionally and personally. Her approach is both disciplined and gracious, always leaving room for new heights.- Daren Thomas, Washington Performing Arts Society
Anne Loehr spoke at the University System of Georgia Human Resource Association’s Spring Conference. She gave extremely engaging and thought provoking presentations.
Attendees remarks included, “Great presentation, we should have her speak to the group again”. There was such great energy in the concurrent sessions she led, the participants did not want to go to their next sessions.- Ginni Siler, USGHR
Practical. Insightful. Entertaining. This no-nonsense look at coaching is a must. Not only for those who manage others, but for anyone that hopes to help the people they work with to be more.- Carole Dickert-Scherr, Vice President, Human Resources, PBS (Public Broadcast Service)
Anne helped me to see through the forest, find a vision, and uncover the stepping stones I need to grow my company. I have doubled sales in 7 months, thanks to the 3 year vision she helped me create! Before working with Anne, I always thought there were only 1-2 solutions to a problem. Now I can see many creative solutions to each problem, allowing me to find innovative ways to grow my business ahead of the competition. I now think before I leap, leading my team to the next level with a cohesive strategy and concrete goals. Working with Anne is like having a “secret ally” in my company, who is always there for me, rooting for me, challenging me to look deeper, supporting me and motivating me to be more successful than I dreamed possible.- Jane West, Director, International Hotel Marketing Ltd.
