“Annie is a remarkable coach, possessing that rare combination of grounded skill and experience and the ability to be flexible and meet her client right where she or he is.

“Annie Gelfand is a highly gifted coach and a person of tremendous passion and integrity. I worked with her for a six-month period when I was eager to break free of some unhealthy patterns in my life.
Our coaching relationship far exceeded my expectations.
Annie helped me to see myself as someone with leadership potential — something that amounted to a total shift in perspective for me.
I would highly recommend Annie to anyone who is ready to embrace real change in their life; to anyone who is ready to answer Annie’s favourite questions — “Why are you here?” and “What do you want?” — honestly and without fear.”
“Hi Annie! I just found out that my work wants to sponsor me for a 6 day leadership retreat at the end of the month. I’m really nervous but I’ve been working away at the application (I’m already confirmed to go though) and I just wanted to share one of my answers with you so that you can see what an influence you’ve had on my life.
“What leaders have had the greatest influence on your life?”
“One of the most powerful leaders in my life was a woman who lived across the street from me in my home town, Annie. She is a professional coach amongst many other skills and talents and exudes this aura of self-confidence, nurturing, and empowerment. I used to pet sit for her and eventually we developed a friendship and I have come to see her as both a leader and a mentor in my life. She is the first person that helped me to realize that it’s okay for people to have different paths/ideas than those around you, and that the right path/idea for you is the one that feels right. She helped me to find the confidence to make some very large decisions in my life, including the decision to pursue an educational/career path that I wanted to take but that wasn’t supported by some other figures in my life. Annie has always recognized beautifully that different people have different strengths and different ways to best tackle the world and make a difference. She inspires me to want to keep bettering myself, to keep learning for as long as I live, and to keep working hard to make a positive change in this world. I draw so much inspiration from her and I would love to keep growing so that I too can feel self-confident, nurturing and empowering and help others in turn to see their own strengths.”Megan Collins
“Annie Gelfand has an uncanny intuition among other effective coaching skills that allowed me to find and “step into my greatness”. Her powerful questions encouraged me to acknowledge and grow parts of myself that have led to exciting changes. Be courageous – Go for it – Call Annie today.”Pamela Van Nest
I highly recommend Annie, and I am moved by her commitment to excellence while making the world a better place.
In my opinion, she is an asset to any professional or organization and a truly wonderful person. Hire her, and achieve success.” Thomas Grieger
