Anna Heywood Profile
‘Anna provides support, challenge, structure, follow up, care, development, self-awareness and toolkits for improvement! I have absolutely no doubt that I would not have developed in the last 10 years in the way that I have without her coaching me.’

Global People Director, High Street Retailer

Anna Heywood is a Chartered Organisational Psychologist, working as an executive coach and facilitator, specialising in leadership development for individuals and teams. After attaining her MSc in Organisational Psychology from UMIST, where she focussed on behavioural change, she worked for various leadership development & coaching consultancies. Anna has spent many years managing and delivering organisational development programmes to improve organisational capability, culture and leadership performance.

Her interests lie in developing leaders and teams to allow them to reach their true potential, through increased awareness of themselves, others, their relationships and the complex systems within which they work.

Anna has a particular passion for helping leaders navigate the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous nature of the organisations they work within.

Inherently curious about what makes people tick and why we behave in the way we do, as a business psychologist, Anna brings both psychological & business appreciation to her work. Her experience of working with leaders and teams has highlighted the importance of aligning individual & team development to the needs of the organisation to ensure return on investment and improved performance.
