“Over the years, I’ve seen so many leaders gain confidence, certainty, and conviction in their lives and careers. What they all have in common is the willingness to be vulnerable — to say what they really feel, who they really are, and what they really need. That’s the source of power that sustains, and that’s where I like to work.”
Anita is an executive coach, group facilitator, and certified NLP Practitioner based in San Francisco. She leads the Knowledge Program at First Round Capital, where she helps hundreds of technology founders and executives connect with one another, candidly share what keeps them up at night, and learn what they need to build better companies. Throughout her previous experiences at Deutsche Bank, MTV, Nickelodeon, and her MBA program at Wharton, she’s helped individuals achieve deep introspection, and given them a platform to share stories that inspire and build community. Whether it was launching a women’s peer group within the bank or a storytelling series for business students, she leads with curiosity and empathy that empowers others to find their voice. What are they thinking about? What do they want? What makes them comfortable enough to share and create change? Anita has an innate ability to find these answers collaboratively and to support clients on their journeys to become the most effective and intentional leaders they can be.
