Imagine the Power of Being Understood!

Anne Murray’s use of humor to teach people how to understand themselves and each other sets her apart from other facilitators. Using the Myer Briggs type Indicator, she leads teambuilding and leadership retreats nationally. She teaches team members that all of us are irresistible to some, and yet, obnoxious to others.

Anne coaches leaders who are technically brilliant, but interpersonally oblivious, to be more effective by improving their “people” skills. She is paid to teach grown people to act nice.

She delivers keynotes and special sessions for national, regional, and state associations; where she is lauded for her depth of knowledge and humorous delivery.

Anne has presented programs throughout the states and parts of Canada.
