Being a driven and ambitious person I initially didn't understand the need for an executive coach but when the opportunity presented itself and I found myself in a position where I was overlooked for career advancement opportunities I signed up. It was difficult to start with as you really need to open up, be honest with yourself and explore the real you. Anna has done a remarkable job of helping me increase my self-awareness, understand the impact I have on others, how I can modify behaviour and language to suit the situation and overall become a much better leader. She has a knack for getting to the why and developing strategies to make lasting improvements. Anna has not only helped me grow as a leader, she has also helped me understand what kind of leader I want to be and build on my strengths and aspirations to get there.
