Anne Loehr: Generational Guru, Author & Transformational Leader
Anne thrives at the intersection of leadership, relationships, and connections. Her books, online learning programs, keynotes, and workshops seamlessly blend insights and experiences from Leadership Development and Management Development as she teaches clients how to leverage diversity in the workplace.
Throughout her career, Anne has lived and learned at the crossroads. She graduated from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Management and moved to Kenya where she owned and managed eco-friendly hotels and safari companies for more than 15 years. East Africa shaped her worldview, challenged her fortitude, and taught her firsthand the power of authentic leadership.
Anne left the USA to turn around a Kenyan hotel, but she also became fluent in crisis management, facing down lions, tsunamis, rivers that carried away camp generators, and plenty of interpersonal and community conflict. Five hundred employees from different tribes did not just come together and succeed by themselves—Anne’s leadership transformed their lives and work, just as earning their respect and trust transformed her. At the time she couldn’t find top-quality leadership, coaching, and team effectiveness facilitators for her employees, so she educated herself and put her knowledge to good use.
When she sold her companies and returned to the USA, she brought along her passion for leadership development and executive coaching that helps leaders communicate effectively and deepen their working relationships. Authentic relationships are shaped by courage and respect, and Anne’s work continues to show that transformational leadership can lead to increased employee retention, higher sales, and a healthy bottom line.
Today’s workplace cries out for new approaches to leadership—change continues at a lightning pace and technology keeps the pedal to the metal. Leaders and managers now contend with 4 generations in the workplace, not to mention a potluck of other cultural differences. Anne was named the “Generational Guru” by The Washington Post, thanks to her unique insights on leveraging the best in each generation and giving her clients an edge in their business.
Anne’s work has been mentioned and/or featured in Newsweek International, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Elle (Canada), Outside Magazine, CNN Money, The Sunday Times (UK), The Guardian (UK) and other international publications. She writes leadership articles for Fast Company, Huffington Post and Washington Business Journal.
