Testimonials from Clients:
“I was excited but hesitant of joining Anne’s Women’s Group Circle. I had been in group circles before and understand how tantamount instilling leadership and facilitation through process can be in such a large and important group for women. Given her presence and leadership in other capacities that I had experienced I trusted that I could show up and see what unfolded. Now, it is the highlight of my month.
Coming together in circle with other women allows me to self-reflect, connect with a community of women, and learn how to be a better listener- both for myself and others as a student clinician (such an important skill at this time point!). Developing values, strengthening clarity around emotional and interpersonal dilemmas we encounter has been particularly important.
I highly suggest this practice for anyone who calls themself an emotionally intelligent leader and for anyone looking to have difficult conversations. Anne creates a space conducive to building insight and clarity. At the same time, she provides the supports you need for continuous development. It’s an incredible opportunity, everyone should try that is in a leadership position (at any level), try it!“

“I had the pleasure to work with Anne as she planned and facilitated a full day retreat for a diverse group of stakeholders engaged in advocacy work together. From the early stages, Anne asked relevant and thought provoking questions of leadership in order to understand the group’s needs and plan for a meaningful retreat. I appreciate that Anne is intentional and straight forward as well as clearly very knowledgeable about group dynamics and facilitating meaningful conversations. The group appreciated her effective facilitation and came away having achieved our goals for the event.”

“Anne was a member of a small team who conducted a case study with us at **** in South Africa. She was helping us to understand our corporate culture and the levels of staff engagement, all within a framework of Appreciative Inquiry.
We were extremely impressed with the speed at which Anne gained insights into what was not only an unknown company to her, but also a very different national culture. She listened attentively, and fed back succinctly, confidently and with valuable advice and observations. Anne left us after a few days only, but she and her team left us with a workable set of advice and solutions that we were able to apply. I would recommend her for her quick mind, her work ethic, her professionalism and her focus on delivering value.“

Consultation & Coaching
We will explore needs by gathering information about what is happening inside your organization or for you as an individual(s), set goals in partnership, design a plan of action and utilize new ways of communicating to promote change. By generating new ideas from those closest to the work you most hope to change, that change is most likely to stick.
Similar to the consultation process, we will begin by asking questions. We will determine what structural supports are most needed to build community and to repair harms.
Team development is fundamental to every aspect of your work; whatever it may be. This has many points of entry and can support the resolution of nearly any challenge you may be facing.
Identity & Belonging
If you acknowledge the benefits a deep sense of belonging and connection in the workplace provide, you will make way for better outcomes. Talk to us more about how we can work with you in ways most fitting for your environment.
Meeting Design & Facilitation
Critical for efficiency, for meeting desired outcomes, and for mission and vision alignment.

Graymake works proactively in all work we do. Planning for the future is woven into every area of business. We will begin with an initial assessment to determine where you are and your readiness for this work in order to support you in being the best organization you can be. It is never too early to begin.
