“Understand and apply this simple coaching model immediately and transform your workplace!”Marshall GoldsmithNew York Times bestselling author of Triggers, MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
"Anytime Coaching is absolutely one of the most practical guides to effective coaching I have encountered in my 20 years as a certified coach. Cover-to-cover the book is full of valuable tools. The integration of new findings from neuroscience and mindfulness helps leaders and coaches deepen their understanding not only of the “what” and the “how” and “why” of effective coaching.”

"Utilizing her extensive knowledge and research about the intersection of neuroscience and leadership, Wendy Swire has developed a high-quality presentation on the theme of “Neuroleadership.” Her presentation balances information and practical activities to provide participants with a solid understanding of how their brains function and impact their leadership style and decision-making processes.”

"I particularly appreciated the way Wendy organized the information that she presented. The concepts had the potential to be big and cumbersome, but she made them logical, digestible and actionable. Her conversational delivery style coupled with her mastery of her subject made for an enjoyable, challenging and helpful presentation. "

“Wendy made a fantastic presentation to our HR Division on Conversational Intelligence. It was thought-provoking and practical, and left us wanting to know more! Many of our team members who missed the early session decided to join a later session because they heard from the first attendees how great it was. Wendy is extremely knowledgeable, energetic, bright, and funny, and I look forward to having her speak to us again soon. I also see a lot of practical uses for Freddie Mac in Conversational Intelligence techniques – particularly in individual and team coaching.”
