About Us

We help leaders implement change through executive coaching and leadership development, so their people and businesses grow, exceeding expectations and fulfilling potential.

We believe that people are capable of change and want to be their best. Our passion and purpose is to create a space that enables change to happen. We achieve this by encouraging new perceptions, challenging assumptions, and upholding our belief in the potential of people and therefore in organisations. We facilitate greater team and group effectiveness, enable dynamic leadership, and encourage collaboration and partnership in organisations. In everything, we strive to maintain open, ethical, ‘real ‘relationships with our clients, both individuals and organisations.

We offer a range of services including executive coaching and coach development, team and leadership effectiveness, and strategic recruitment. We work with a team of talented psychologists and coaches who bring passion and a wealth of experience to the table; our associates are highly qualified in their fields of expertise, and handpicked to best fit your projects and initiatives.

Saints Academy is the youth organisation run by Southampton Football Club, a Premier League team, and was established to encourage and develop young footballers in the South of England.

 

Anna Springett has provided leadership development coaching to Saints Academy since 2016 to support coaches and leaders with their professional development as the Academy seeks to continually leverage its leadership potential.

 

The club's Academy Director: “Anna has supported me personally on the Premier League Elite Academy Managers programme through a series of mentoring sessions.   These have proven to be extremely valuable and helped me to really reflect and think deeply into my personal goals, the way I operate and the challenges of my very diverse role. I would certainly recommend Anna to those in leadership positions looking to grow and develop further”  (Matt Hale, Academy Director, 2020). Iain Brunnschweiller, Coach & Player Development Manager, also commented, adding: “Anna has provided outstanding support for a number of our elite coaches over the past few years.  She is extremely personable and creates a safe environment for her mentees to explore their reflections and learnings, whilst effectively pushing back when necessary.

 

Her work has been transformational, and the feedback from the coaches has been excellent” (2020).

First Community Health and Care is a community healthcare provider and part of the NHS family. They deliver community healthcare services in east Surrey and West Sussex and have been rated as Outstanding by CQC.

In partnership with the CEO, Anna Springett Consulting designed a leadership and culture change programme which was piloted in 2018, to enable collaborative system leadership during times of change and uncertainty. The programme continued successfully into 2022, with in-depth evaluation revealing a significant shift in leadership mindset across all participant groups who had finished the programme. When Covid19 led to restrictions in face-to-face delivery, the sixth programme was temporarily paused, and participants from all six groups were offered bi-weekly virtual reflective spaces facilitated by Anna to support them during the challenging pandemic situation.

After the initial 8-week period had passed, comments such as ‘I am not ready for these sessions to end’ and ‘I cannot tell you how much it has helped me’ led to further support being offered as First Community, along with the country as a whole, started to emerge from Lockdown.

Anna Springett Consulting continues to work in partnership with First Community to deliver leadership development support to its frontline clinicians, leadership teams, and support staff.

The First Community’s Business Services Team provide organisation-wide support to all departments and services across the business, providing business partnering support for estates management, finance, IT, data analysis and management information.

Rachel Buckenham, Head of Contracts, says: 'We approached Anna to work with us as a team in 2018 to support us with team building and customer care training, and have continued to work with her as our team coach since then, with seven team events to date (2021), including three virtual sessions during the Covid pandemic period.

She designed each team session based on our specific needs at the time, most recently reconnecting people that are predominantly working from home with one another and with their office-based colleagues, and supporting team discussions on new ways of working as we come out of the pandemic.

Team members report that they feel better supported and less stressed, and we now have collectively agreed plans to shape new working patterns as we emerge from the pandemic period.’

Adrian Baillieu, Director of Finance and Resources, says: ‘Anna continues to be an invaluable source of professional support to my team, and her expert facilitation of events has left me free to join in with the productive conversations that result from her input rather than having to facilitate the sessions myself.

The team look forward to the events that Anna hosts for us, and our understanding of one another and of the contribution that we individually and collectively make to our company has improved as a result.’
