Empowering Potential through Coaching
At Coaching by Annie, we strive to continue what I have always enjoyed in my previous roles: creating resilient teams, guiding organizations toward their business goals through leadership coaching, and empowering employees and organizations to recognize and harness their full potential.
As a coach, I lead with curiosity, honesty, and a genuine commitment to supporting clients through their unique journeys. Having navigated my own life changes and setbacks, I understand the value of new awareness and growth that challenges can foster. I am dedicated to fostering a safe, welcoming environment where clients can explore their potential and approach their goals with renewed energy and perspective.
Before stepping into the coaching realm, I spent significant years navigating various industries such as beer distribution, sports entertainment, retail technology, and EdTech, undertaking leadership roles in human resources.
My most transformative career shift, however, was transitioning from a decade-long tenure in retail management to a more people-centric role in human resources. This change was driven by my passion for facilitating personal and professional growth and my innate ability to connect with people on a deeper level.
Over the years, diverse experiences and challenges have enriched my career path. Still, the most rewarding aspect has always been helping individuals expand their horizons, set ambitious goals, and devise effective strategies to achieve them. These rewarding experiences ignited my desire to delve deeper into the realm of coaching, ultimately leading to the creation of Coaching by Annie.
Additionally, I provide strategic HR consulting services, working closely with leaders and stakeholders to ensure people operations are aligned with business goals. Together, we'll create an HR strategy to facilitate your growth and streamline HR functions effectively. Explore the full range of HR consulting services here.
