We all have untapped potential.  Anne works with organisations and individuals who are challenged to discover more about what this means for them.  She offers a comprehensive, powerful suite of growth and development processes that equip and empower people and teams to craft a desired and meaningful future, raise engagement, and achieve inspiring outcomes.

Training and Facilitation

Anne has extensive experience in providing leadership development, building self-empowerment, raising levels of responsibility, ownership and accountability, engaging in role clarity, developing coaching skills and optimising performance.  Her approach in groups is engaging, interactive and stretching.  Anne’s interventions are fresh, unique and designed to provoke deep thought that leads to significant transformation.

Strategic Planning

Strategic planning without strategic thinking is just another annual exercise. But as we look down the time line of the future we are creating, there is much to consider.  Anne involves key people in processes that challenge behaviour, thinking, habits and potential.  Then can we understand what it will actually take to define, agree and achieve our organisational aspirations.

Coach Training

Coach training programmes are brain-based, drawing on current neuroscience research to provide trainees with knowledge and practical skills to profoundly impact on how people think and therefore behave – in and out of the workplace.  Coaches learn to transform insights, the currency of the coaching process, into beneficial change.  Anne also offers mentor coaching to support coaches toward ICF credentials.

Individual Coaching

Anne is an International Coach Federation PCC accredited coach who has worked with hundreds of individuals globally to reach out and attain what is important to them – personally and professionally. A coach is a thinking partner – a specialist who works with individuals to clarify the future, break it down into bite-size achievable pieces, and champion the journey to get there.

Leadership Coaching

Anne is a highly experienced leadership and executive coach working with people responsible for taking organisations and teams forward.  She believes that people, whose thinking is stretched and catalysed, build thinking organisations – places where teams are solution focused and employees are empowered to bring their best to the workplace.

Team Coaching

High performing teams are excited about being successful. Team coaching is just what they need to define clearly what that means, align everyone with the vision, clarify where they are currently and agree what they need to do to get there.  Once they are all on board, they can accomplish extraordinary results.  Team coaching is the process that defines the road map and fires up the process to ensure they can celebrate their success.

  • This course has changed my life. The training was a breath of fresh air, working in a sector where long meetings and workshops are the norm. The process was fast-paced, exciting and challenging, and held very skilfully. I am proud to call myself a coach who was trained by Anne Heslop, and highly recommend the programme to facilitators and leaders who want to truly deepen their practice.

  • This is the best learning experience I have had with a coach.  Anne stretched my thinking but also gave me time to reflect.  She ensured that I took my team with me.  They are now aligned with my vision and are excited to go on this new journey with me.  I gained valuable insights about myself and my circumstances at each session.  Anne was confident, knowledgeable and professional.

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
