I am Anna Nichols!
Being raised as a first generation American, I have spent my life helping people understand one another. From translating for my Polish parents, to helping teams collaborate better, or leading major change in an organization. I believe clear, confident communication is an important part of developing as a person and as a leader.
These experiences taught me the value of developing leadership skills in order to be successful as a manager, business owner, or entrepreneur.
Today, I help people wanting to grow their leadership skills by improving their confidence and communication so that they can be empowered leaders in their businesses. I support people in becoming empowered leaders through a journey of self-discovery, identity development, leadership strategies, and mindset transformation.
