My philosophy

I am motivated to help leaders make a bigger difference through being at their best more of the time 

Deciding who to partner with for leadership development or executive coaching can seem a daunting task. Many consultants will claim they are the right fit for you and your organisation. Here I offer insight to the beliefs and values which inform my professional approach. 

I work with senior leaders because I believe they determine the culture of an organisation through their behaviour, the language they use, and the values and beliefs that underpin that behaviour. My own core values are kindness, openness and courage, which guide me in all I do. 

I am committed to ensuring that everyone, whoever they are, whatever their background and experience, and irrespective of their status feels valued and respected, that they and their contribution matter to the overall success of the business.

I bring a passionate curiosity. I am genuinely interested in, and care about, each and every person in any leadership group or team. I support, challenge and encourage leaders to be real, and to bring all of themselves to the group or team. 

A trusted leadership development partner

I am proud of my professional reputation, following twenty years of successful work as a leadership consultant. Senior leaders trust and rely on me for confidentiality. I am committed to supporting them throughout any leadership development programme in an on-going conversation that ensures the programme is being led from within, by them, with me as their trusted partner. 

I am committed to being fully present for all of my client organisations. I rarely work back-to-back with leadership groups and teams. I allow space for myself so that I too can reflect and learn.

Whether in one-to-one coaching relationships, executive teams or groups of senior managers from across an organisation, my clients know they can trust me to hold the space for them.

Magic just seems to happen working with Anni. I have always admired her incredible knack for creating and then holding the space in which people can bring everything they are and give everything they have; and in many cases give and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Anni brings an intellect and generosity of spirit that together make for truly collaborative and powerful partnerships. Working in partnership with Anni means learning together, challenging one another and delivering great work that makes a difference to people, teams and organisations; and is a lot of fun along the way!
