Realising potential through the power of connections


We believe that improving people’s experience of work leads to better business growth and results. It also has big benefits for their families and how they engage with their communities outside.

It’s a sobering thought that despite all the hard work put into leading teams and organisations the number one reason people leave the job is their boss (Gallop 2015). Research has shown more than 50% of the variation in team performance is down to the way conversations are held.  According to the Gallop study, 69% of both managers and employees struggle to have effective conversations at work.



We have seen how successful organisations share the following:
  • A clear, meaningful purpose that is owned
  • Leaders who consciously pursue this with integrity
  • Conversations that build connection, grow people’s strengths and contribution



We notice how helping leaders create different conversations with their teams has a rapid and tangible impact on their performance.  We draw on new understanding of how our brains operate at work to create impactful leadership development interventions and grow positive relationships for strong business success.

We work either with individuals, teams or larger cross function groups to support you in accelerating the change or growth you are looking to create.

We coach, challenge and encourage leaders at all levels.

As a coach and facilitator in the Birmingham area, Ann is passionate about creating a challenging, inspiring and safe space for leaders to explore their impact and effectiveness.

She is able to quickly understand where an organisation is and what they want to change. She integrates her own background of senior leadership in the health sector with her extensive experience of coaching and facilitation in the commercial and public sector. Her depth of understanding of how the brain responds at work enables her to effectively support managers and leaders in increasing employee engagement with organisational strategy and change.

Ann’s experience and interpersonal skills enables her to rapidly engage teams and individuals from a range of organisational cultures.

She is also accredited by the Coaches Training Institute and the International Coaching Federation. She is an NLP practitioner and has a PhD in physiology and psychology thrown in for good measure.

Ann has been privileged to work with large groups of severely disaffected teenagers. Using a combination of energy, fun and neuroscience there was a resulting increase in their attainment levels and passion for learning. Ann has also worked successfully with multi agency partnerships within communities to develop strategic responses designed to reduce the impact of abuse in women and children.

She lives in Birmingham, one of the UK friendliest and diverse cities with her partner and three children, bounding into adulthood. Each one teaching her something new every day. She loves walking and running in the hills of Wales and Cumbria or swimming in the Irish Sea whenever she can. She has recently discovered the joy of singing and has been delighted to sing with her choir in Birmingham’s awe inspiring symphony hall with its world class acoustics and orchestra.
