Anne is inspired by the capacity of the human brain to think about things differently and the possibilities we all have to experience the world and what happens in our lives in new and creative ways. One of her favourite books is Viktor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning’, the great testament to man’s capacity to respond as he chooses and to retain his freedom even in the most adverse of circumstances.
Anne is passionate about inspirational leadership as the key to enabling positive change in the lives of individuals, organisations and the world we live in. As a coach Anne specialises in developing and supporting leaders and emerging leaders in professional services firms. She works alongside her clients as they grapple with the increasingly complex challenges of leading agile businesses, coping with constant change, and engaging and inspiring their people - some of the smartest on the planet!
Anne has successfully coached more than 150 Partners, C-level/ Director- level executives and emerging leaders in over 40 professional and financial services organisations. They say she has inspired and motivated them to lead more effectively and enjoy more fulfilling lives. Most importantly she has enabled them to coach themselves and their teams, meaning that the benefits are self-sustaining.
Anne draws on her personal and professional experience over 25 years as a practising lawyer, academic and senior international executive in global law firms. She combines her interest in human psychology, family systems and neursoscience with a deep understanding of the challenges of leadership in the professional services sector. Anne brings to her practice a broad international perspective born of her family background and many years living and working across cultures.
Anne offers a practical, solutions-focused approach. It is designed to help clients reflect, learn and change. She describes coaching as a way of‘thinking systematically about the world’ Her aim is to enhance clients’ quality of thinking, develop their habit of purposeful reflection, and encourage specific action and implementation beyond just talking. Ultimately, she wants to enable clients to lead more effectively, and help them and their organisations achieve their commercial objectives. With her background in law, she places great value in relationships, and is contactable between sessions.
Anne is a half-German, half-Irish, completely European Brit. She grew up in the Royal Observatory, where her stargazing led to a lifelong interest in the big picture and in how things connect. She has worked around the world, living for a time in Africa, on Karen Blixen’s farm. She has two grown-up sons, and loves art and books (Stalingrad is one of her favourites).
