Hi I’m Anna, an independent executive coach who specialises in leadership development, fulfilling potential and communicating with impact (and confidence).
I worked in communication, people management and leadership roles for global organisations ahead of starting Jester Consulting in 2013. Now I enjoy coaching and developing people nationally and internationally, working with a range of senior managers, directors and business leaders across a variety of different organisations, in terms of both size and sector.
I have a coaching and development hub in Warwickshire where I am now based (I'm from Surrey originally). I'm also set up for virtual sessions and coach many clients using online video sessions - particularly right now as face to face is tricky owing to coronavirus!
I’m a big believer that human connection trumps all, effective communication behaviours form the foundation of everything else that follows and how we make people feel is first and foremost. This understanding forms the basis of everything I do and the way in which we would work together.
I'd love to hear from you!
Anna is really easy to talk to and seems like she knows her stuff!!
Looking forward to having long term coaching of off her
I’d never given too much thought to coaching in the past but working with Anna was a revelation for me. Not only was she hugely helpful in terms of guiding me through some challenging work situations, but importantly she also showed me how to create a working environment within which I could thrive and simultaneously work toward my broader life goals. Her approach encourages problem solving through guidance to view situations from different perspectives, which is not only empowering but also incredibly effective. In particular I appreciate Anna’s counsel when it comes to the delicate art of effective communication – Anna’s ability to reframe situations based on adopting the point of view of others had a genuinely transformational impact on outcomes. I’d also add that nothing is ever too much trouble for Anna in terms of accommodating her clients and everything that is discussed is always kept in the strictest of confidence. More...
I am a newly promoted business leader in a large global manufacturing business. Whilst being ambitious and capable, I have asked Anna to help me in developing my leadership style and improving my self-confidence. Working with Anna has transformed my perception of leadership and myself. Our sessions are focused and well-structured, and have enabled me to recognise my existing values and strengths, and build on them to improve my performance. Thanks to Anna my confidence as a leader has noticeably improved and my approach to leadership and communication is far more intentional than before. Working with Anna has been very positive and I look forward to continuing this in the future. More...
Anna is very friendly and has a wealth of experience and i am sure she will be a great asset to me and my business.
