Helping Leaders and Teams
Do Their Best Work

“Spending time with Hanna was one of the best investments I made in myself and my career last year.”
– CFO, Series C Tech Company

“Hanna helped me uncover my default thinking patterns, and she has pushed me to challenge those default thinking patterns to be more flexible. The result: I’m happier, I’m getting more done, I’m showing up for my team in a more positive way, and my work/life balance is in much better shape.”
– VP Engineering, Roblox

“Hanna has provided me with brilliant advice and steady support through a major career transition, stressful management challenges, and periods of rapid personal growth. Between our conversations, I always get surprising and useful insights from her thought leadership columns on Forbes—an added bonus.”
– C-Suite Executive, Series B health tech company

“I always look forward to our sessions and would recommend her to anyone seeking to expand their wingspan– whether through amplified leadership, higher individual performance or enhanced team effectiveness.”
– Global Head of Legal Department, Asset Management Firm

“I help leaders build their capacity to deliver results sustainably. When things get tough, my clients know that I will be there for them—supporting, challenging, and helping them keep perspective.”

Today’s leaders and executives face increasing complexity in a time of rapid technical, environmental, and social change. Their organizations and teams need them to provide stability and guidance while adapting to changing conditions. They must think creatively and strategically, build a strong team, communicate effectively, make hard choices, and take responsibility. At the same time, leaders experience their own internal challenges—stress, frustration, uncertainty, and fear. Working with the system as a whole or with key individuals, I help my clients become more self-aware and effective and also find more fulfillment in their work.
