Meet Your Coach

Annette Bechtold, Leadership and Executive Coach and Consultant

Achieve – Communicate – Individualize – Maximize – Ideation

As a leadership and executive coach and consultant, I focus on helping individuals and teams discover their natural talents and gifts. My goal is to inspire them on their journey to achieve meaningful performance and success. Together, we explore unique talents and learn how to leverage them to align with aspirations and callings. Transforming talents to strengths will provide you with direction resulting in greater performance, productivity, and profitability for teams and businesses.

From a young age, I have always felt drawn to helping those around me. I would readily volunteer for any organization, job, or task that helped someone else. From this inherent desire to help those around me thrive, I found myself in leadership and mentoring roles with each organization. During my 38-year career in the health insurance industry, I spent time advocating for employers and individuals to help improve the healthcare landscape, while creating, nurturing, and leading various business teams.  This work and decades of work in volunteer and association organizations, provides real life understanding of the challenges that leaders face.

Feeling a strong calling to continue my life-long passion of advocacy and serving others, I built Forte Consulting Atlanta dedicated to the growth and prosperity of individuals, businesses, leaders, and teams. Ultimately, I want to help them realize their capabilities and achieve more. In my practice, I also offer my talents and gifts to couples, teachers, faith-based communities, associations, and other volunteer-based groups with the desire to engage and enrich their members, congregations, and leaders.

Over the years, I’ve coached hundreds of individuals and teams, in various industries and walks of life.  My goal is to help my clients identify what success means to them and understand and apply their gifts to thrive. This is the key to achieving greater personal satisfaction, confidence, and success.

I continue to actively grow and learn in my coaching craft to better serve my clients. I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coaching Federation, a Gallup®-certified Strengths Coach and engagement champion, a Lead Like Jesus facilitator, Belem Leader coach, a REALIFE® certified facilitator, and Life Calling Institute coach.
