Nancy Glynn

Nancy’s work with executives focuses on peak performance that is sustainable for both executives and their organisations. Her background as an internationally-based global executive, combined with her unusual first career as a classical performing artist, results in a unique approach that is both evidence-based and creative. She is a pathfinder for leaders to tap into their sometimes dormant abilities, while expanding their repertoires to become more agile in successfully navigating the growing complexity of today’s world.

“Nancy is not only an excellent listener. She brings me tremendous clarity, encapsulating the issues and helping me to frame, reconfigure, and tie them to a plan of action in ways that I find extremely valuable.”

CEO, RETAIL PROPERTY COMPANY
