We have great programs for schools, too!


We coach children to distinguish between good and bad behaviors, influences and decisions; to socialize and be good friends; to understand how they learn and to value academic success; to be responsible for themselves and their actions and to develop other key character qualities and habits to make them successful throughout their school career and beyond.

We coach teens to deal with their changing bodies and minds, discerning good and bad peer influences, taking the right risks, stopping to think and reflect before acting and living today with tomorrow in mind. All teens engage in some risky behaviors. We partner with parents to guide them through this crucial time in their lives as we help them establish positive behaviors and habits.

I initially utilized Anne as an Executive Coach. I was in my 1st Executive role, young, an in need of outside, unbiased, politic free guidance. Anne helped me set goals and objectives for my facility, myself, and my staff. She taught me how to communicate those benchmarks, clearly communicate our progress towards them, expect results and celebrate accomplishment. Most importantly, she taught me that I could trust my judgment, that I had the tools I needed to lead, and that I could do it… and I have, since. Soon after beginning my time with Anne, I also asked her to work with each of my key personnel that had their own leadership skills to develop or refine, and their own personnel to continuously help improve and train. I also utilized Anne’s expertise in team building and annual retreats. This exercise was invaluable in bringing the new hopes and dreams out of my office, and making them, along with others’ great ideas, OUR new goals and objectives. This created a great sense of teamwork and clarity within our organization never experienced. I would recommend Anne to any leader, Executive or Leader, and organization, large or small. Anne is intelligent, capable, empowering, and a great communicator and facilitator. S. Stewart

She’s pushed me to the max.  To be a better leader, better person, better business woman and I love her for it! My leadership coach Anne is the best !!!

I had just joined the leadership team and I really needed help learning how to set boundaries, have hard conversations and communicate with other leaders effectively.

Anne’s coaching provided me with the tools I needed to be a successful new leader.  I learned how to communicate effectively, specifically, understanding others’ communication styles.  This was huge for me and solved many workplace AND personal challenges.

Anne’s coaching and leadership has helped me become a better leader in so many ways.  It allowed me to let go of projects that were taking a lot of time, but should have been delegated.  Learning this freed up time to work on higher level projects and support my team the way they needed.

I would say that I have grown by leaps and bounds due to Anne’s coaching!  I am not sure I would have been as successful had I not had Anne by my side.  She helped me through some of the toughest times in my career, and I think my organization was better for it.
