Transformational Leadership & The Future of Work

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
