Join Anne's Network

Hello. I'm Anne Doyle, author of Powering Up! How America's Women Achievers Become Leaders.

For the past four decades, I have been on the front lines of a generation of American women who helped redefine the world of work. I've also been tested in some of the toughest leadership laboratories: sports locker rooms, the global auto industry, political office and parenting.

Today, my focus is the unlimited possibilities just ahead as women and the most diverse workforce in our history begin powering up into leadership.

Strategic advantage awaits those with the vision and courage to create innovative paths for this new breed of leaders. Here are ways I can help:

On Anne's Mind & What Others Say

Thoughts on Mothers and Mothering

"Becoming a parent is one of the scariest things you'll ever do. It's a decision to spend the rest of your life with your heart walking around outside of your body."
"Anne takes it to the next level in all that she does. You could not select a better speaker or trainer than Anne Doyle. She understands the issues and how to convey important concepts in a meaningful way that moves and enlightens audiences."
Rick Kamel
President, PRbytheminute.com
"Anne Doyle has taken the best experience of her years in media, the auto industry, and public relations and transformed it into a unique and powerful executive communications practice. She is both direct and sensitive, focused yet visionary, capable of stimulating change. She knows the key to getting high-level people to overcome personal shortcomings."
Dr. Richard T. Cole
Professor, Michigan State University
"How fun do you imagine it was for Anne Doyle to go toe-to-toe with men like then-Tigers president Jim Campbell? How lonely do you suppose it was to be the only woman, standing outside a locker room door, taking a deep breath and forcing yourself to walk in? Talk about grace under pressure."

Anne Doyle developed hers in hot seat environments and she passes them on to present and future leaders with the enthusiasm, skill and depth of experience of a true professional who has 'been there and done that.'"

"Insightful as a sage. Hard hitting as a journalist. Inspiring as a coach. A senior executive who has successfully navigated across several industries to come into her own in the new generation of leadership development."

"In places that reeked of testosterone, Anne Doyle spent years breaking barriers for women and letting in fresh air. From the locker room to the board room, she was a woman working and winning in a man’s world."
