Annie Canning - Canning Life & Business Coaching Rotorua - Clarity. Action. Achievement.

Hi, I’m Annie Canning.

For the majority of my professional career I have worked in Rotorua and the wider Bay of Plenty area.

Before training as a coach, my specialist areas were in human resource and compliance functions across a range of industries and sectors.  As an experienced senior HR and compliance leader I have worked in close partnership with CEO’s and senior management teams to drive business strategy and effect change.

My work today comes from the transitions I have supported businesses through, and those that I have made personally on my professional journey.

Today I specialise as a coach, trainer and consultant, working with clients who are serious about making a change personally and professionally, in a significant way.  I am utterly passionate about people and their development.

My husband, Roger and I reside in Rotorua. Having both travelled extensively, we have an appreciation for the magnificent lifestyle afforded to us here.  We are a blended family with three gorgeous girls, a couple of pooches and a demanding cat.

What does a life coach do?

A life coach is a professional who helps you reach a goal or make a change in your life.  They are like a personal trainer, but with a focus on your life goals.

How does life & business coaching work?

In a nutshell, CLC will get you out of your head so you can start taking action in the areas of your life that you want to change. Using guided questions you are taken through a process that helps you to evaluate and decide which steps to take in order to reach your goal or make an important change. During the course of the process, the role of the coach moves into one of motivator, strategist and accountability partner.

My aim is to help you reach your goal in the most efficient, effective and satisfying way possible. CLC will work with you through the process, helping you identify your goals and establishing a plan to support their achievement. In addition, I assist you in identifying blocks and help you work through or around any obstacles in the way of your success.

What doesn't a life coach do?

I’m not a counsellor or advisor.  At CLC we believe you have all the answers; through discussion, suggestion, brainstorming and reflection, the right path for you will become apparent.

What is life coaching going to do for me? How will it change me?

Coaching will help you gain clarity around what is really going on in your life. It will enable you to re-interpret your current situation in a different more positive way and provide you with tools and techniques to generate those lightbulb moments.

As the process is applied, you will become more aware of your goals and have a clearer sense of direction and purpose. I’m there to encourage and support you, but also hold you accountable and challenge you to extend yourself.

Without a doubt, your outlook and approach to life will be more positive, mindful, strategic and confident.

What does it cost?

Life Style Coaching
Generally we begin with an introductory session where you will set some goals that you will work on in your coaching sessions. Between us we decide how many coaching sessions you will require to achieve your goals. You can decide on a session by session basis, however to gain traction I recommend that you commit to an agreed number of sessions. Session prices are $225 + GST and are approximately 1 – 1.5 hours in duration.

Business Coaching, Workshops and Seminars
CLC tailor’s coaching packages and workshops to meet the needs of the client. Prices vary dependent on requirements.
