Testimonials from Principals and Vice Principals
“I want to let you know you are very inspiring and your level of comfort and expertise is really genuine". November 2020
The Coaching…. “helped me to "leave behind " issues, worries and concerns and to "move on " to the next challenges posed by a leadership role. Anne displayed a wonderful capacity to listen to my sharings and then feed back to me the essence of my own thoughts. Her gentle probing helped me to unravel my thinking. I found it easy to " make a connection " with Anne. Her calm and positive manner provided me with the foundations for our work together to be successful problem solving sessions”.
