Anese is the founder of Dare To Engage®, and a trusted advisor, coach, teacher, and thinking partner to entrepreneurial, creative, and mission focused leaders committed to creating impact in their lives, organizations, and the world at large. She specializes in working with individuals and groups to create a “leadership from the inside out” approach, addressing external factors as secondary and calling all leaders to own and optimize their impact and presence through the power of energy leadership, intention, authenticity, and relationships. Anese thrives working with clients to create energized cultures, healthy leadership, and positive results. Her mission is to help people achieve their highest potential for peace, purpose, self-care, and leadership in order to create positive impact and relationships in the world.
Working with clients to solve problems and create opportunities in the areas of leadership, collaboration, energy management, and life design, she uses a hybrid approach of coaching, consulting, teaching, and “whatever it takes” as best serves the client. To help clients integrate this approach more deeply and sustainably into their culture, she licenses & “stewards” the program internally, broadening reach and giving everyone common language and tools for leadership, collaboration, and “balance”.
Described by clients and colleagues as a “serious but playful force” and a “provocative, loving, and fierce advocate”, Anese is known for her energy, commitment, and ability to meeting clients where they’re at, while challenging them to step further, creating their most congruent and internally inspired solutions. With a philosophy that the more successful and influential you become, the more important it is to “do the work”, her clients commit to growth and playing a more joyful edgier game with greater contribution to each other, their organizations, and their impact on the world at large.
With credentials in kinesiology, coaching, leadership, wellness, and other training disciplines, she brings a diverse and holistic approach to her work. Working with clients like IDEO, Cooper, Doorsteps, Pur Pak, Zingermans, and Youth Guidance, her methodology has been integrated into many of these organizations as well as written about it in best selling business and leadership books.
In addition to a proven track record for impact working individually and organizationally with clients, she’s authored hundreds of articles, written 3 books, was named a “Professional Woman of the Year” in coaching/training/mentoring, and belongs to multiple business circles who are her entrepreneurial family and partners in impact. Fascinated with energy, leadership and the human spirit, she relies on continuous learning and exploration to master her craft. Believing that a physical practice is essential to optimal energy and leadership, Anese engages regularly in Bikram Yoga, cross training, and hiking. Married, with two children, and two dogs, she lives in Northern California.
