She offers her expertise through one to one programs, group programs and enterprise wide programs. 

Coaching

People skills for high performers

  • Developing people skills in technically strong leaders.
  • It’s about helping them develop and coach their staff, build strong relationships and networks, and increase influence with stakeholders and clients.

Engagement excellence for senior executives

  • Advancing key influence and engagement skills for senior executives.
  • It’s about understanding people politics, navigating the power and relationship dynamics of senior stakeholders (boards, executive teams, industry players) and driving organisational outcomes. 

Presentation impact for committed communicators 

  • Developing a credible and confident communication style.
  • It’s about engaging presentations, visibility and impact in meetings, and a clear communication style that gets the message across.
“A coach is someone who tells you what you don’t want to hear, who has you see what you don’t want to see, so you can be who you have always known you could be.”
— Tom Landry

Profiling

Motivational Mapping for high performance

  • Understanding why you think, act and communicate the way you do.
  • It’s about decoding interpersonal clicks and clashes, understanding behavioural drivers at a below consicousl level and leveraging individual talents for improved performance and satisfaction.

Facilitation

Offsite and on track

  • A facilitated leadership offsites that allow your team to deal with the hot issues without getting off track.
  • It’s about open communication, committed conversation and covering what you wanted to, to get what you needed to

Meeting matters

  • An antidote program for long winded, unstructured, or unproductive meetings.
  • It’s about hearing all voices, covering the core and owning the outcomes.

Team Traction 

  • A team development program to fast track high performance for new teams.
  • It’s about improving communication and connection, understanding and leveraging strengths and accelerating team performance.
A great facilitator needs to have an acute intuition about the group in front of them and what will resonate with them. Anneli does this time and again, using appropriate models to introduce theory into the content to help people understand their own behaviour and that of others with greater clarity. Anneli comes with my highest recommendation of facilitation skills in any employee or manager group where better leadership, communication and accountability behaviours are the goals.

I worked with Anneli as part of an off-site aimed at building trust amongst a new leadership team and getting a clearer understanding of the team’s drivers and personal preferences. Anneli was brilliant in her ability to connect with my team, facilitate a conversation and provide tangible suggestions on how we can better understand each other’s motivations and make the most of the team dynamic. Thanks so much Anneli!

“In a recent gathering of Women Entrepreneurs from WCEI, Anneli Blundell captured the essence of the importance of communication and it’s impact on the effectiveness of an organisation. Anneli offered thought provoking methodology and suggested ways to the group that would improve our productivity using techniques that will enhance our businesses and relationships with both staff and customers.
In her excellent presentation, it was evident that Anneli had considerable expertise in this discipline and possessed an ability herself to communicate effectively to her audience.”
