“My work is guided by a core question: how can humans grow into wisdom?“
Alis Anagnostakis, Senior Associate
Her passion for people development grew from an early age, where she devoured books on neuroscience, psychology and the complexities of human nature. She established a career as an executive coach, facilitator and consultant, working with companies such as Vodafone, Microsoft, HP and IBM, and followed her calling into an Executive Master in Positive Leadership and Strategy.
Prior to joining Performance Frontiers, Alis founded two successful learning and development organisations: Zenith Journey and Mind Learners. In 2015, she created the ICF accredited Mind Learners Transformational Coaching Program, where leaders are equipped to become a force for systemic change by pairing the tools of coaching with the power of self-awareness and self-inquiry.
In all her work, Alis acts as a “translator” between the fascinating world of psychological science and the pragmatic world of business – building bridges between the two in ever more creative ways. She seeks to create experiences that deepen wisdom and develop people’s capacity not only to contribute positively to teams, cultures, business and society, but to lead a life well-lived.
Alis is currently completing her PhD studying the impact of transformational learning experiences on the consciousness development of leaders. She is an avid reader, blogger, mother to an inquisitive daughter, partner to a brilliant chef, and a perpetual student of the human mind and heart.
