Ann has had the pleasure of learning from David and Donna in just about every offer they have made of TED* and 3VQ over the years. Ann is also a graduate of the 2-year Mastery in Polarities program, and often uses a Both/And approach in her coaching to enable more effective collaboration and dialogue. She is a Certified Team Performance Coach, and author of two books on group and team coaching—Being Coached: Leadership and Team Coaching from the Inside, and VUCA Tools for a VUCA World.
