Speaking and Workshops

As an inspiring key-note speaker and workshop leader, Anne brings energy and expertise to any gathering. Her most notable events address the keys to navigating change, equipping leaders in building resilient teams, and thriving through live's big transitions. 

Team Retreats

Many groups call themselves teams, but they lack the shared identity, influence and impact that true teams deliver. Through retreats, workshops, coaching and facilitated meetings, groups shift from "me" to "we" with outstanding results.

Executive Coaching

For over ten years, Anne and her expert team have served Fortune 500 leaders in growing their talent, performance and organizational culture - creating meaningful change and lasting impact.

"Anne Harbison wins the ’Nobody Else’ awards in terms of leadership, culture and people development. Nobody else brings the level of insight, thoughtfulness, and relevant life experience to the types of complex challenges we face today. Whether as a 'guide on the side' (a consultant and coach) or a ’sage on stage’ (speaker), Anne brings a unique and time-tested wisdom to her clients.” "
