Anna approaches executive coaching under the premise that we can move forward without “armor,” and embrace our integrated, authentic selves. She helps clients navigate today’s dynamic business world with its continually increasing demands of delivering productivity and results with fewer resources.
She encourages executives to view their workplace as a proving ground to encounter their own strength, express their values, and clarify their intentions. She provides a judgment-free, supportive environment to expose blind spots, create connections between seemingly unrelated ideas, and uncover patterns of behavior that would benefit from change.
Anna works with executive clients to assess their behaviors and intrinsic motivators, empowering them to alter unrewarding work habits and step out of their own way. Her clients learn to lead with confidence, integrity and focus, inspiring their teams to bring their best selves to work.
