Annie is an experienced coach working across organizations with leaders, managers, individual contributors/high potentials and teams.
Her approach is neuroscience based, process focused and outcome driven. She uses a clearly articulated and well-structured process that facilitates results. This process is focused firmly on setting and achieving objectives, and enabling clarity about ways forward.
Making complex decisions and solving new problems is difficult for any stretch of time because of some real biological limits on brain. Annie helps create understanding on how her coachees can work smarter, be more focused and productive, stay cool under pressure, reduce time in meetings and influence other people, which is what change is all about.
AFI helps leaders and teams focus their attention on the right activities and solutions by helping them improve their thinking. Their clients are able to focus their attention on new possibilities, reflect and gain insight, then move into action.
Brain-based coaching leverages the latest neuroscience techniques to create new pathways in the brain, allowing you to think better.
The approach focuses on developing people’s thinking and is based on an understanding of how the brain works.
The brain is a connection machine, we learn new things by making connections of information; thinking, memories, feelings, emotions, encompassing millions of connections or maps in our brain.
Coaching is helps people make connections to understand, learn and develop. Habits, perception, or the ways we see the world are the results of hardwiring our brains. By changing our perceptions, we will be able to change our lives. In organizations, if an employee can change the way they look at situations, their behavior, performance, and results will be changed as well.
Neuroscience is beginning to provide an explanation of how and why coaching works.
It supports the solutions-focused approach as a fast way to change. A brain-based approach also helps explain many other domains of study, including change theory, adult learning theory, positive psychology and the study of creativity, amongst others. This approach is linking a hard science to coaching.
