Reviews for Anne Wicking
I would wholeheartedly recommend Anne as a Mentor. Her depth of business knowledge and experience as a leader and her level of authenticity and genuine care ensures insightful guidance and practical support.
It is often very difficult when you are in senior management or running your own business, to be able to share some of the challenges you face. Having someone like Anne who I trusted and respected, was invaluable. These discussions created the space for me to talk. Anne would place events into perspective, challenge me regarding my actions and assumptions and provide insight in how to navigate certain situations.
Anne helped me gain greater self awareness regarding the triggers that can impact my behaviour and the importance of authenticity in leadership. What I find refreshing is that Anne skillfully guides you through an issue where you gain clarity, insight and confidence in moving forward.
My Total Wellbeing in Focus
Anne has guided me through some of my best and worst circumstances in both my professional and private life.
She opened my mind to address difficult situations with confidence and compassion. I felt assured she had my total wellbeing in focus when mentoring.
Her insights and ability to reflect on how to work with different cohorts of people has meant that my professional and personal relationships have become more transparent, open and authentic.
Being Mentored by Anne is to have someone who listens, provides a safe space to explore be curious and have the courage to really step forward.
I don’t think I have ever made a significant career move without Anne’s guidance.
Anne has been my mentor for 15 years. To provide context – I started my career in film production from the ground up and now own my own production company. She has been by my side from day one. In fact, I don’t think I have ever made a significant career move without Anne’s guidance. I certainly would not be in the position I am today without her knowledge and support.
Anne has a unique ability to sense what you need and the outcomes you want – even when you may be unsure what it is you’re actually seeking. Other times – I have known clearly where I’ve needed to go, but hesitant about the moves to make to get there – she’ll guide that too. I think her advice works in any case, because of Anne’s innate ability and intuition to ask the right questions. She’ll always end up telling me I already knew the answers but – it’s the way she gets you there that makes you feel like you can conquer the world.
There is no one like Anne. I truly don’t know what I would do without her – and highly recommend her to other women as a mentor.
Anne has worked with me for the last 2 years. We have focused on the development of my executive leadership skills, business strategy and HR, as well as an education program focused on developing my skills in Conversational Intelligence. I have gained skills in all these areas and grown enormously. This growth has increased my confidence in my role.
In addition, Anne has been a sounding board and she is flexible in her approach and we focus on what is important to me in my role . Anne is an exceptional listener and she has a wealth of knowledge that she generously shares. Our sessions are relaxed and Anne has taken the time to get to know me.
I would highly recommend Anne to anyone looking for a mentor who genuinely cares and for those who are looking for support to develop their skills.
Insightful strategic advice with a holistic approach
Anne is a wonderful mentor who always takes the time to fully understand the issue and/or objectives at hand.
Her holistic approach, compassionate nature and wealth of knowledge have inspired and supported me in making some major life decisions (both personal and professional).
Her expertise and direction has been invaluable – I’ve always come away from our discussions feeling confident towards next steps and empowered to take them.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anne – she’s both an amazing woman and mentor.
Great motivator and helps you stay focused and strategic
Taking on the CEO role for a not-for-profit (NFP) organization supporting vulnerable members and depending mainly on volunteers is no mean feat.
Anne, with her wide range of experience working with NFP, government, and vulnerable communities, was a godsend.
With her genuine empathy and understanding of the challenges I faced, I leave my sessions with Anne always feeling recharged and motivated.
She is a great sounding board for my ideas and helps me stay focused and strategic. She is an invaluable mentor to anyone who is serious about improving their leadership and management.
