Finding your unique way

Welcome to Élan Coaching

Welcome to Élan, Anna Sheather’s coaching and supervision practice offering services that support personal growth and change, whether as a leader of a top flight organisation or as a private individual.

What’s in a name…

When setting up Élan in 2006 I was looking for a name for my practice that gave me a sense of what I felt coaching was all about. Élan really felt right. When you explore the definition of élan you will see that it is about our personal presence and the way we live our lives. Someone with élan has a certain something about them, a confident unique way in which they live and work. They have a presence that is inspired by, and shows their enthusiasm and passion for, what they are doing.

When we have élan, we are living our lives in a way that is true to ourselves.

Meet the Élan Coaches

All the coaches that work with me at Élan are people that I respect and value through the work we have done together. I have met some through training programmes, others through supervision and one or two through recommendation. They all bring a wealth of experience and knowledge, not just as coaches, but also as seasoned professionals with backgrounds in a variety of walks of life.
