Anna Conrad, JD has guided hundreds of individuals, teams, and organizations to achieve greater success through organizational development, succession planning, leadership development, training, and facilitation of strategy sessions, but Anna didn’t start her journey as a leader, so how did she end up one?
With a lifelong dream of pursuing a career that would help change the world, Anna attended the University of Denver law school. Several years later, while practicing law and teaching at various universities, Anna was recruited by a Fortune 500 company to facilitate leadership development programs. It didn’t take long for Anna to realize that she could make as much of a difference in the world by shaping the leaders of the future as she could practicing law.
From there, it becomes history. Over the next 15 years of her career, Anna developed her own skills to become the type of leader – and person – that she wanted to be. Anna has held leadership consulting and coaching roles with renowned brands including First Data Corporation (former parent company of Western Union) Comcast and Qwest (currently CenturyLink). Realizing she could only make so much difference working with an individual company, Anna set off to start her own firm.
In August 2007, Impact Leadership Solutions was born. Anna is committed to not only effectively developing leaders for her clients, but also to helping the world lead more effectively by sharing her knowledge of leadership. Anna embodies her principles of leadership in both her personal and professional life, which is why she’s able to communicate it to her clients so well.
She has worked globally with Fortune 500 companies, law firms, judges, government agencies, and companies of all sizes delivering cutting edge programs that emphasize leadership, interpersonal communication, corporate culture change, teamwork, and personal accountability to improve individual and organizational performance and profitability. Clients include Western Union, Crocs, Encana Oil & Gas, MDC Holdings, CoBank, Comcast, Level 3, Williams Production, Long View Systems, CoBank, Colorado State Judicial Department, City of Lakewood, CBRE Global Investors, Riverstone Residential, and dozens more.
Anna has been published globally in trade journals on leadership, professional development, and succession management. She is a highly sought after speaker, trainer, and author.
