Paths and destinations to utilize my potential.

I want to express my gratitude for your guidance over the past three months. Our first meeting was held in the same week that I opened my own store front after working in other’s locations for three years. Since that first meeting I have experienced the following milestones: I have had my highest grossing single day. I have doubled my average client flow per week from when I opened. My monthly client volume during this “slow” time has been 75% of my previous “peak” volume. I have cut down my cycle time with new clients by 25%. I have increased my over all efficiency by 75%. I have the structure to obtain the home I wanted in 20 years within the next 3 years and the BELIEF that it will happen. Many are over flowing with potential. You have offered me paths and destinations to utilize my potential. For that, I am eternally grateful. Thank you.

I am sharing a total success!

What I mean is that I would not have been as successful if it hadn't been for your working with my foundation executive. With your coaching, the chair and I were able to work more effectively, in a strong partnership, and as team -- something she said she'd never experienced in the past with this organization. She said when she gets frustrated, she asks herself, "What would Anne say?". I finish my year as foundation president feeling like I left it in better condition than when I started. Thank you.

You are truly one of a kind!

My opportunities with Anne Kirvan left me feeling the following: Self empowered! Motivated and inspired! Focused and re-charged! De-stressed and able to see a clear plan of action! Ready and set to go! Anne Kirvan gained my trust quickly after one session. She took a cluttered idea or what I called a “mess” and handed back an attainable monument. I believe my visits with her are only a glimpse of her capabilities. I would recommend Anne, not only to grow your business, but to build your potential dream life! Thank you Anne for pulling out fantastic energy and putting it to good use! You are truly one of a kind!

I love working with someone who shares these values and has a keen ear for truth. Anne, thanks for making my business and life better than ever. If you are looking for the best person to facilitate the creation of your best life, I recommend Anne Kirvan without reservation. You are lucky to have found her!

Better Team Work Through Coaching

★★★★★

I decided on coaching to help me gain a new level of confidence and hold myself accountable to achieving goals. Specifically, I wanted to return to being true to myself and my values. As a result, I have new tools that allow me to look within and choose my response in situations and with people. I am definitely more comfortable and confident now. I know this isn’t quantifiable, but there is a difference with my personal accountability and in the way I’m leading my team and working with our clients at work. It’s great talking with Anne and having her shed new light on various things I say, to considering things/situations from different perspectives. Coaching has helped me create awareness; it worked to build my leadership and enhance relationship building skills.

Key was to Challenge without Confrontation

★★★★★
5 5 1
The subject of the course was about improving relationships, but as everyone enrolled quickly learned, this begins with developing a better understanding of yourself. Anne’s style was effective in that she was able to challenge us individually and collectively without being confrontational. This was key because the group developed an extraordinary level of trust between the participants as well as with Anne. Without this level of trust it would have been impossible for the coaching to be effective.

Anne Kirvan is an engaging conversationalist and an empathetic listener, two qualities necessary in a performance/leadership coach. From the minute you meet Anne and begin a conversation, she engages you by asking the right questions – some questions that you want to answer, some questions that you want to avoid, some questions that require some thought. In every instance, she leads you to ask yourself the most important questions – what is important? And what do I want?

Working with Annie helped give me the skill set I needed to go about my life more efficiently in many ways. At work I was more able to deal with challenging obstacles and conflicts in a calm way. I found what matters were important enough to me to necessitate confrontation and which I could easily let go. In my personal life I felt I gained more confidence from a better understanding of myself, my needs, my values, and also what I did not need or care to have in my life. I would recommend working with Annie to anyone interested in leading a more thoughtful, organized, and balanced life, or who is working toward attaining a goal.
