Jessica Grant

Enterprise IT Business Analyst 

I had the opportunity to have Anita as my coach through the NEW Rising Stars program in 2020. Although 2020 was a challenging year for all of us and it was a virtual event, Anita made it easier to navigate through all things career development. I highly recommend her as a Leadership trainer/ coach because she is able to provide insight and tools to use to ignite the inner-leader in the people she works with. She was also able to ask probing questions to get you to think differently about a situation or scenario, which is so helpful!. I really enjoyed my experience with Anita and looks forward to future opportunities.

Christine Boule

Client Insights Principal

I didn't realize how much impact Anita had on me initially, but over time the value of her coaching has really emerged. First, I am in a new role that I am really excited about, and I would not be here if I hadn't taken the time to consider where I want to be, why I deserve to be there, and how I was going to make it happen. Anita found a great balance of listening, encouraging, and challenging as we worked through the exercises. Moving forward, I've already identified the kind of role I want my next move to be, and I'm working on the steps I need to go through to get there. I cannot thank Anita enough for her coaching over the past 6 months!

Mara New

Vice-President Sales & Development

My work with Anita has been incredibly inspiring and has helped me to be a better leader and strategic thinker. Anita has a way of taking your thoughts and re-framing them for you that creates unbelievable awareness and visibility into opportunities for growth. I have learned more about myself in a year of working with Anita than I would have ever thought possible. My work with her is interesting, rewarding, and it makes me stronger every step of the way. Every session brings new insight and a sense of possibility. I would recommend her as a coach for any executive looking to evolve and grow. She's phenomenal.

Jim Moody

Director of Real Estate Services at Integrity Law, P.A.

Being, mostly, a practical, material, return-on-investment, kind of guy, I often look askance at the idea of coaching, counseling, structured introspection, and the like. I always look for the end result, value, especially when choosing to spend my time and energy, which is in demand and pulled in a hundred different directions. 

That said, I can't recommend Anita...more

Nancy Curtis

Consultant for IT and Business Transformation

I've know Anita since grad school, and when she began Possible Conversations I know she was the right person to help me clarify and accomplish critical personal and professional changes. Anita's skills are impressive, but it's her own emotional intelligence that makes her so effective as an executive/life/leadership coach. Call her, you'll be happy for the conversation!
