Annette Bechtold, Leadership and Executive Coach and Consultant
Achiever, Communication, Individualization, Maximizer, Ideatio
As a leadership and executive coach and consultant, I focus on helping individuals and teams to discover their God-given 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 provides direction. This allows for greater performance, productivity, and profitability for teams and businesses.
From 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. My 38-year career in the health insurance industry, I spent my time advocating for employers and individuals to help improve the healthcare landscape, while nurturing and leading various business teams. This work and decades of work in volunteer and association organizations provides real life understanding of the challenges leaders face.
Feeling a strong calling to continue my life-long passion of advocacy and serving others, I began the pursuit of a dedicated practice. I built Forte Consulting Atlanta dedicated to help individuals, businesses, and teams to plan, build, grow, and prosper. Ultimately, to help them be more. In my practice, I translate and offer my talents and gifts to many individuals, groups, and organizations. Some of those I work with are 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.
