Cannot recommend highly enough
Legal Marketing Manager
I cannot recommend Anita highly enough. She has a wonderful talent for actually hearing what you are really trying to say. She has plenty of experience, which enables her to quickly understand and analyze different situations. Anita always makes herself available to discuss situations as they arise – considering how quickly career directions change, this is enormously valuable. Without interfering, she has allowed me to discover for myself the appropriate path I should take. Most importantly, Anita has helped me develop habits, which I hone daily, that will serve me well in whatever direction I decide to turn. That sort of guidance is priceless.
As a person who changed careers -- field, position, and geographic location all at the same time -- I was fortunate to have Anita in my corner. She supported my year-long process, encouraged me when I was doubtful, and gently guided me back to basics whenever I got off-track. And her experience as an HR professional was invaluable to me during salary negotiations. Anita always responded to my messages and concerns right away, and when I got the job of my dreams, I think she was more excited than I was! Thanks, Anita.
Serenity and strength
Serenity and strength is probably the best way to describe Anita.I had the chance to work with her during an intensive coaching session for executives and she really impressed me by her capability to listen. Anita was able with just one question or one word to move a complete team in another direction... the right one! I absolutely recommend Anita Attridge for any executives that would like a discreet wise advisor that do not look for the spotlight but for the right light. A true tranquil force!
