CoachAnovick.com, Developing Potential, Producing Results.
Interests: CoachAnovick: Our mission is to be a force for positive change, to inspire and enable people and organizations to do more, to achieve a higher degree of output or self-actualization. A change agent helps you realize what could or should be and converts that shared vision into a governing sense of action. In coaching individuals one-to-one, we begin with the end goal in mind, we focus on changes that will stick. I’m passionate about what we do as change is difficult for most people. Through my ability to listen, communicate effectively and motivate my clients achieve significant results.
