Coach Trainer
Federal Coach
Coach Mentor

I help busy federal executives to disconnect from workplace chaos in order to reconnect to their most effective and authentic selves. Recharged and balanced, my clients then provide the inspired leadership their organizations and teams must have.

My federal clients report a direct link between our coaching and outcomes such as effective time management, work-life balance, better delegation, clarity on personal and professional values, selfcare, mission accomplishment, adaptive leadership, trust, and team morale.

Can Federal Agencies Afford NOT to Coach High Potential Performers?
White Paper by Anne Kelly, PCC
2017

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) supports “A coaching culture across the government”. Yet Federal executives face budget uncertainty, hiring freezes, reorganizations, and other challenging situations. When faced with resource constraints, the temptation is to cut investments in important developmental processes. My White Paper describes the need for coaching as distinguished from other developmental processes, suggests who are the ideal coaching candidates, and summarizes the key benefits and successful strategies of coaching.

Coaching, Facilitation, & Training - How To Choose?

What clients say about Anne:


“Anne is a truly masterful coach. She is compassionate and professional while holding a completely safe space for me to be transparent, explore, and discover my own answers. She's a great guide on the path.

She gave me lots of space to explore (I like lots of space) and brought me back to my focus in a way that didn't interrupt my rhythm and flow. Great questions, redirects, and reframes!

Anne is an amazing support and superb coach. If you have a direction, hire Anne; she'll support you to achieve your goal!”


Joanna Davis, MCC-pending, Coach For Life Faculty


“Anne is calm, insightful and deeply supportive. She has a great ability to hold the space for the coachee to think, reflect and have insights, and she provides steady guidance over the duration of the engagement, yet always keeps the coachee in the driver's seat.

I loved the way Anne continued to reflect my thinking and feeling, helping me build a sense of my cognitive and philosophical journey. It really helped me understand my old patterns of thinking and my new patterns. At all times, she was deeply respectful and nurturing, yet challenged me around my thinking.

If you have deeper questions about life, then Anne is the coach for you. I whole-heartedly recommend Anne as a coach.”


Chris Ridler, Director - Leadership, Coaching and Performance, Performance Potential

“Anne Kelly is one of the top 5 Inspired Learning Facilitators I know of in the world! She creates an amazingly safe, inviting, and comfortable learning environment that promotes open sharing and sharing of best practices among the learners.

I love her natural humor and easy flowing operating style. I find myself smiling throughout the entire class and I always take away a new insight, learning or deeper appreciation of each class’ focus. Thank you for being a great coach, great Inspired Learning Facilitator, and great human being!”


Peter J. Reding, MBA, MCC, – Co-founder Coach For Life


“Anne, you have been such a wonderful co-facilitator. You bring sparkle, creativity and humor to everything you do and that has been such a wonderful contribution to the Deeper Conversations Coach CCE Program class. Thank you for your commitment to the class participants and to your role as facilitator.”

Jamee Tenzer, PCC, BCC

“Thank you, Anne!! I echo exactly what Jamee said :-) -- We are so fortunate to have you and your many gifts with us for the Deeper Conversations CCE Program, and the participants equally so!!”

Pat Herber, ACC, Leadership and Life Transition Coach

“I had the great pleasure of meeting Anne in 2007 during her certification as an Inspired Learning facilitator. What really stood out for me was her range of expertise, passion for learning, and ability to deliver a rich, well-designed, experiential session. And this was just in the first months of knowing her!

She understands what it takes to design a session with purpose, practical application, inspiration, and sensitivity to different learning styles. Combine this with her ease in front of a room, excellent coaching skills, and generous spirit….well I just find this to be a powerful package. Indeed, Anne brings a unique approach and blend of talent to help individuals, teams, and organizations move forward in a positive direction.”


Deb Waterstone, Certified Coach/Learning Consultant


“Anne gave me one coaching session and a book to read, and I have kept her advice in mind ever since. In fact, I have passed a few of these tips onto others and they have been very helpful. Anne is intuitive, welcoming, knowledgeable and is good at pointing out the gaps. I would recommend her highly.”

Darcy Richards, Frederick, MD

“Anne C. Kelly is a gifted coach, facilitator and trainer. I have had the joy and honor to participate in the Metro DC ICF Facilitation and Training Community of Practice that she organizes and leads. She is wise, kind, compassionate and genuine. She listens deeply, asks insightful questions, demonstrates flexibility in her approach and infuses joy in every session.
I am so happy to have found Anne and the meaningful group she facilitates to support other ICF professional coaches in continuing education and deep connection.”


Deborah Jane Wells, EMPOWERMENT, Board-Certified Coach, Author and Reiki Master Teacher


“Anne demonstrated excellent and high-level facilitation skills during our small group training, coaching and professional development program. She was encouraging, positive, creative, caring, and showed up as a learner as well as a facilitator. I found her to demonstrate a deep level of competence and confidence especially with the ICF core competencies. I would highly recommend Anne as a mentor, facilitator, coach and trainer based on my experience.”

Anne joined Frederick News-Post reporters Kate Masters and Colin McGuire in their studio to discuss best practices in coaching, how coaches have different styles (including ruthless), as well as “the most effective learning process in the world.” We closed by taking Life-Coach questions submitted by the newsroom staff.

Peter J. Reding, MCC, and Anne Kelly, PCC, discuss “ The most effective learning model in the world - guaranteed.” Listen in as they consider the leap of faith that enabled this critique-free learning environment to come into being; the human body’s physical reaction and shut-down mechanisms in the face of critique; how facilitators and teachers can attract their perfect match in “Inspired Learners”; and the ICF Core Competencies and powdered wigs!
