Anne M. Papinchak


After  twenty plus years of  “in the trenches”  individual and team leadership experiencee, now as an independent consultant and coach, I partner with my clients to create Great Cultures by developing GREAT Leaders and GREAT Work.

At my best, I am a serving  leader and thinking  partner with strong business acumen,  with a proven track record for delivering result through others. As a strategic change leader, I have learned to influence without direct authority.

I became a Professional Certified Coach (ICF-PCC),  because I love the immediate results we can have  by assessing  strengths, identifying key opportunities for development and creating a reasonable-business relevant - action plan.  I then hold you accountable to the objectives you have set, strategize on approaches,  and work with you to collect real-time feedback to assess results.  My  clients (individuals and teams)  realize their power to name their purpose, create what matters most and bring forth the courage to grow and experience new results in business and life.
