I am Ann C. Holm, a Professional Certified Coach who will help you develop your strengths while accounting for blind spots. More than flashes of insight, I will help you build and sustain new neural pathways to truly uncover your potential.

Catalyze Growth

Inquiry and insight will inform your journey as we work together to build and sustain new foundational neural pathways to optimize your strengths, identify blindspots, and catalyze transformative growth.

Create a Roadmap

A clear, actionable roadmap will guide and support your way forward, providing direction and understanding around all facets of your personality preferences.

Reach Your Goals

My signature development protocol educates, equips, and empowers you to reach and maintain your personal and professional coaching goals.



People often get in their own way, resulting in harsh judgments of themselves, others, and circumstances. We emerge from reading inspiring books or taking seminars with enthusiasm to change, but because we lack an expert guide or an overarching roadmap that creates sustainable momentum, we fail to achieve our goals.

Energy is wasted in this cycle of self-sabotage even though it can even feel like you must behave this way to be effective. The solution? Self-awareness and mental fitness 

Reaching your true potential can be boiled down to these two factors. Being self-aware and mentally fit empowers you to be flexible with your behavior, communicate with influence, and lead effectively.

As an experienced coach, I lead you through the process. My signature coaching protocol and mental conditioning activities support you becoming your best self, leading to increased confidence, peak performance, and enhanced life satisfaction.






When I first engaged with Ann a decade ago, I was going through a really tough time, both professionally and personally. I felt like I had lost my way and developed some bad habits. I wanted more, but I didn’t know how to get it. Working with Ann helped me recognize both my strengths and weaknesses. More importantly, we together developed a path to my goals that enabled me to leverage my strengths while avoiding the pitfalls that had tripped me up so many times in the past. Ann helped me to see my potential to influence others and encouraged me to start a blog that eventually became my business. Today, The Logistics of Logistics podcast is one of the leading business news podcasts and I would have never started it had I not met Ann – she even came up with the name!”

Educator Bandwidth: Reclaiming Your Energy, Passion, and Time

Think of bandwidth as the energy that powers the prefrontal cortex of the brain—the center of executive function. This small area of the brain uses a tremendous amount of energy. We need that energy to make good decisions, focus on cognitively demanding tasks, be patient and empathetic, and engage in necessary self-care, such as eating well. You can increase the amount of “bandwidth” you have using specific behaviors, similar to how you can increase fuel capacity by installing a bigger fuel tank in your car.

However, use up bandwidth for one of the above functions and you’ll be running on empty for the others. Learn about your current brain energy and bandwidth—your willpower, patience, and concentration capacity—and the practices that will help you and your learning community reclaim energy, passion, and time.

Working with Ann was the jumpstart that I needed to make major transformations in my life.

In our time together, she guided me towards a way of making wiser, more impactful decisions. This change has improved all areas of my life. Working with Ann led to improvements in my relationships with my spouse, my parents and even myself. And after years of struggling to find a better path, I’m in a more fulfilling career and living my purpose in life.It t was a wonderfully rewarding experience!


“I used PQ reps to focus myself before speaking at an IT Security Strategy conference”

Felix Asare, Cybersecurity Officer

“Positive Intelligence has been great to increase mental strength. When I use PQ reps I become more focused, and less stressed. These exercises have made not only my work relationships better, but also my personal relationships. I have learned so much about myself during this process. I am so grateful!”

Operations Manager at Freight Tec

“We would like to thank you for the magnificent job you [and Jane Kise] did at our Truly Nolen International Convention in the Dominican Republic. The presentations and workshops were outstanding. All the participants found the material very interesting, helpful and appropriate for all the different cultures [representing 28 countries] in the meeting.”

Jose Lutz, CEO

“We received rave reviews about your training. Some were surprised that the training was so much fun! Your expertise clearly made this training a valuable learning experience.”

Gail Krieg

“Ann is every inch a masterful coach, but more importantly, she continually seeks more knowledge to improve her ability to help clients. Our partnership benefits from her commitment to deepening her brain science background, the connections she makes among diverse content areas and applications, and her enthusiasm and drive for creating the most cutting-edge services she can deliver.”

Jane Kise, author and Intentional Leadership Framework teaching partner

“Ann Holm is one of those rare personable talents that can take complex psychological concepts and relate them with open simplicity and clarity. She is an expert in her field, and presents her craft in an engaging and down right charming way. In short, she is on point, and the audiences that are fortunate to listen to her, ‘get it.’ As such, it is without hesitation that I would recommend Ann for any speaking or facilitating engagement.”

Stewart Brannen

“Ann is a wonderful MBTI interpreter and coach. Our organization, HIRED, works with clients seeking re-employment, often after being laid-off and uncertain about their employment prospects in the current market. Ann uses the MBTI – III to identify a client’s job search or career “blind spots” as well as re-energize and refine their search. It’s quite common for these long-term unemployed clients to land jobs within 3-6 weeks after their coaching session. Ann’s a priceless partner in our mission to serve our clients.”

Brian Torkkola

“As a young professional, I have demonstrated that I possess the skills necessary to be successful. I will admit that I was not sure what the MBTI-III would be able to do for me. After the feedback session with Ms. Holm, I am now a firm believer in the value of this tool. I was not surprised to find my Meyers-Briggs type to be ENTP. I am fairly predictable in this sense. What Ms. Holm was able to do for me with the Step III tool was isolate my blind spots and help formulate strategies to make me more productive.”

LT Nguyen, MD

“I would like people to know about the talents of Ann Holm. I have witnessed her skills at taking MBTI data and not only help make sense of it, but present it in a manner that motivates insight and growth. I am particularly impressed that her style of providing feedback continuously keeps her client involved and does not relegate him/her to a passive role of receiving information. If you have interest in going to your next level of insight into the use of your personality as an instrument for making a difference at work and in relationships, you would benefit from Ann Holm’s coaching.”

Dr. Gregory E. Huszczo, Professor of Organizational Behavior and Development

“Thank you so much for the time you spent with me on Tuesday. I’ve taken a number of personal assessments, but this is the first time that I have walked away thinking it was fully me and not just me in general terms.”
