Annie Perdue Olson
Teacher - Coach - Facilitator
My passion is to work with leaders who want to build healthy teams at the intersection of great leadership and an active dynamic faith.
I have worked in ministry and nonprofit organizations through seasons of growth and downsizing; transition and restructuring; chaos and hope. I have experienced all kinds of people-challenges and I still firmly believe we work better when we work together.
I have been honored to work with some incredibly talented leaders that commit their time and energy to making the world a better place. Some of my favorite projects:
Leadership skills training programs to leverage the way we are wired to do relationships at work and in life
Coach leaders through the unique challenges of small organizations on limited budgets to achieve excellence
Clarify roles, design organization structures and evaluate processes with a strengths-based approach
Facilitate sessions for strategic planning and goal setting with a unique approach on how to use metrics in ministry
In my work with leaders, I access experience from over 16 years in nonprofit management and pastoral ministry and 8 years as a leadership trainer / consultant. I have a Master of Arts in Human Resources and Change Leadership from the University of St. Thomas, my coaching certificate from Center for Coaching Excellence, and certification as an MBTI practitioner. I use a variety of assessments in my work -- but the best assessment of what your organization needs is YOU. My goal is to work with you to compliment the brilliance in your leadership, teams and organization.
