About Anne Hathaway

  • MBA, INSEAD, France

  • Qualified Time to Think Coach, Coach Supervisor, Facilitator, and Consultant
My work is focused on helping others - individual executives, newly-formed or existing teams, and the coaches that work with them - to create the conditions in which they can think afresh about the challenges they face, taking their thinking out beyond the boundaries they may have set for themselves and generating the courage to act in new ways. As a survivor of a number of life’s challenges myself, I know that the human spirit is resilient and capable of much more than we can imagine - and that gentleness can facilitate great transformations.

I’ve worked with organisations in both the private, public and third sectors, as diverse as EasyJet and the Human Tissue Authority, with tri-cultural, tri-lingual teams in Brussels, and with multinational groups from Geneva to Stockholm. 

I’ve been a colleague of Nancy Kline, CEO of Time to Think, for over thirty years, and the Thinking Environment approach she pioneered underpins everything I do. I met and first trained with Nancy in 1993 and am one of an elite group of consultants authorized by her company Time to Think Ltd. to teach the Thinking Environment® and its applications internationally. Since 2009, as a founder member of Time to Think’s Global Faculty, I’ve mentored, supervised and assessed the practical work of Nancy’s own student facilitators, coaches and consultants seeking accreditation, and run regular events as part of their ongoing professional development.

In 2018 I was honoured to win the Coaching at Work External Coaching/Mentoring Champion Award for my work with Time to Think.  

My pro bono work includes coaching young entrepreneurs for the New Entrepreneurs Foundation Fast Track programme, and facilitation for the Windsor Leadership Trust.   
When I’m not working:
I’ve been a choral singer all my life (the ultimate team sport) and in the past few years have been working on my solo voice as well. I’m a keen jewellery designer/maker and have a micro online jewellery business on the UK craft makers’ platform Folksy. I love growing things, visiting gardens to look at the things other people have grown (and have tea and homemade cake!), and generally spending time in nature. I successfully led local efforts to win a Royal Horticultural Society community award for gardening two years running, and more recently have started volunteering as a Room Guide at a nearby Georgian property looked after by English Heritage.  

I have an untouched ukulele that is waiting for me to have nothing better to do...
