When I need pragmatic changes that will stick, I call Ann. She’s the best.
I’ve done a lot of strategic planning, board retreats, and other facilitated activities, and I’ve never worked with anyone else who comes close to bringing the same value to the table as Ann Latham does.
All the consultants we considered had good references and experience. We chose Ann because we believed she would hold us accountable for what we needed to achieve, even if it made us uncomfortable.
Ann is especially adept at making good choices about further discourse and exposition, pursuing the most fruitful issues and avoiding time wasted on others.
On a collaborative project with Boeing, Ann did a tremendous job in identifying barriers to the success of our project.
We emerged with a powerful and strongly supported strategy that has created tremendous new excitement about the organization’s future.
She is sharp, efficient, candid, and has a very effective style and approach that facilitates action and empowers an organization’s leaders.
I would readily recommend Ann. She is extremely effective in leading a group in strategy and problem solving. She is also flexible and easy to work with. I found this to be true during our planning and our two days together as a group.
We tackled thorny issues, made important decisions, and developed an excellent strategic plan. I just wish I had access to her insights all of the time!
I have learned as much from Ann about focused, action-oriented leadership in two months as in a decade of first-hand experience.
The process we engaged in was outstanding and the outcome of our work is truly exceptional.
Ann is one of the best business speakers I have heard.
Ann cuts to the chase and distills what is important while still honoring the intentions of each individual.
Ann is just a terrific speaker. I was hoping for a single gem of wisdom. What I got instead was a solid hour packed with gems.
Ann over-delivered with her impactful presentation full of real-life scenarios and specific ways we can transform the way we think, plan, work, and interact to become “Ultra Productive.”
Ann showed me a different way to optimize our precious time by focusing on clarity. Thanks for the eye opening session.
Ann, I love your Clear Thoughts newsletter. I read every edition. They’re all fantastic, and highly relevant to Medtronic.
Ann’s book, Clear Thoughts, is the fresh, grounding breath of perspective that every executive needs.
‘Wow’ sums it up nicely. The way she works is impressive. On top of that, I really enjoy working with her.
Ann truly helped us achieve profitable, predictable growth while improving the quality of our methods and processes.
If you haven’t worked with Ann, heard her speak, or subscribed to her newsletter, you are missing a great opportunity!
Ann uncovers common ground, creates opportunity, and guides the group to shared conclusions in remarkably little time.
It worked! They were all prepared and engaged and we accomplished our goals.
You are clearly a gifted facilitator and helped us achieve some important outcomes. The ROI was there.
I hadn’t realized how entrenched I was in so many time-wasting habits until Ann made them transparent.
