Ask yourself

Here’s the truth:
There’s a fundamental lack of understanding about the BS of HR and how you end up at WTF every time. 
My Approach?
We start with your reality rather than the corporate script.
Every time.
People Brilliance Officer
: One who exposes the gifts of each team member and thereby also contributes to a collective shine.
Who I Am:

I’m a sassy, straight-talking People Brilliance Strategist with 25 years experience, a lot of certifications... and scars from my own beautiful, soul-busting journey. With one hand rooted firmly in the corporate world and the other in a yoga pose, my kind of woo woo leads to sustained transformation.

CEO at Turnitin

“Anne led the HR team as the Chief People Officer at Turnitin for 4 years and in addition to functional expertise, my lasting impression is her deep commitment to building a culture of authenticity.  Anne is direct yet kind; she tells it like it is and always leads with a unique combination of strength and vulnerability.”

Old Way:

Reward hard work with external promises of titles, pay and privilege.

New Way:

Anticipate human needs, help people grow, and offer an experience, so they have intrinsic motivation to do their best.

The Truth:

It’s a blend of both, but your spirit must be planted firmly in the new way.

“Anne brought us a stronger focus on our culture and our people strategies and processes.  We had a solid HR foundation - people were being hired and paid and everyone knew the rules to play by.  What was missing was the emphasis on culture, leadership style, and organizational development.  Anne helped us develop a deeper understanding of our business, leadership and our people.  Anne is my partner and a vital sounding board for making better organizational decisions and to guide the IRONMAN Group to an even stronger culture.  For a company like us, that is not quite ready for a full time Chief People Officer, Anne plays a powerful role is helping us get better."

where do you find yourself?

The Challenge:

You squeezed money out of the budget and created a strong, tactical HR team.  You've met hiring, on-boarding, and ops management needs.  Now there’s a new gap: People Strategy. It’s too early for a Chief People Officer, but you need to scale, increase employee engagement and create a meaningful company culture. And fast. 

The Approach:

An on-demand, part time Chief People Officer.

The Challenge:

Your peeps are talented and paid well. Customers are solid. Your company gives back. There’s beer in the fridge. All the pieces are in place. But your culture is NOT amazing. Everyone seems to be working hard at the cutting edge of...mediocrity. The environment feels flat. Why? 

The Approach:

A deeper understanding of your people and what’s actually going on.

The Challenge:

You’re a high-performer--always have been, but now you’re muscling through the monotony. You’re checked out. It’s not the job--it’s YOU. Are you playing small? Are you blocked? You KNOW you should listen to the whispers so you don’t have to hear the screams, but what are they saying?

The Approach:

A no-bullshit-but-hella-compassionate style of coaching.
