"If you want to change your life, start by taking charge!"

Book Ann Now

"Ann, why should I hire you to speak?"

Because research shows that self-leadership and high-performance skills are directly tied to professional success.

If I teach your people how to take full responsibility for everything they think, say, and do, they are going to become better managers and leaders...and better people.

They'll walk out with specific tools and a step-by-step guide for exactly how to take ownership of every choice and every decision they make going forward.

And that will absolutely benefit you and your organization.

Veterans Are Not Victims

This unconventional and lively program is designed for organizations interested in hiring, training, and retaining more veterans.

It helps veterans transition into the corporate culture and helps corporate employees understand the actual military culture, not the one portrayed by Hollywood or the media. 

This program enhances your onboarding and leadership programs. As a workshop, it is especially insightful for senior management.
