Expansion Coaching

Integrated Heart-Head Leadership

When you are energised and excited by what you do, and find meaning and purpose in it, you integrate head and heart and bring your full self to everything you do.

Gráinne McAnallen

Integrated Heart-Head Leadership

I am an executive coach, helping individuals and organisations to align more fully with their purpose, a purpose that harnesses both their heart and their head and allows them to bring their full potential into the world.

My Integrated Heart-Head Leadership Programs, which focus on working with the whole person and on identifying and strengthening a sense of purpose, seek to support inner transformation so that you can change your world, and the world, from the inside-out.

Purpose & Transformation

My ten years researching and investing in hedge funds and my experience as a parent have been equally valuable in shaping the coach I am today, representing both my outer journey and my inner journey.

I have come to appreciate the power of aligning your outer goals with your inner purpose. Your purpose guides all of your decisions, whether you can articulate it or not. When you get clarity on your purpose and bring your life into alignment with it, all parts of your life become an expression of your purpose. The results is greater fulfilment internally and greater impact externally. 

Corporate career

Before becoming a coach, I worked as an analyst and portfolio manager in the hedge fund business for 10 years. In my early 30s, I was living in New York, researching, investing in and managing relationships with the most highly regarded money managers in the business. Typical investments were $100MN-150MN and I had ultimate responsibility for $1.6BN.

Being part of a highly successful business gave me a tremendous sense of purpose. However, it was only when I became a parent, that I started to appreciate the true depth and meaning of purpose.

Parenting

Parenting has been a transformative experience for me. In developmental terms, parenting has provided a stream of constant disruption that has forced me to re-evaluate who I am and how I show up in the world, as well as providing a positive incentive to be the best person I can be. 

Parenting has not only broadened my perspective, it has given me a longer time horizon than I had before. Parenting has made me a part of something much bigger than me and my story. 

Beyond this, parenting has taught me lessons, crucial to business, that no MBA or professional program could. I acquired a greater curiosity about people and the influences that shaped them, true patience that emerged from a deeper compassion for self and others, an ease in putting other’s needs first knowing that their success and my success are intertwined, a commitment to do what is right even if it makes me unpopular, and a strong belief in our collective humanity and connectivity.

Integrated Heart-Head Leadership

I am an executive coach, helping individuals and organisations to align more fully with their purpose, a purpose that harnesses both their heart and their head and allows them to bring their full potential into the world.

I focus on working with the whole person and seek to support transformation by working with clients simultaneously from the inside-out and from the outside-in.

Purpose & Transformation

My ten years researching and investing in hedge funds and my experience as a parent have been equally valuable in shaping the coach I am today, representing both my outer journey and my inner journey.

Through these two very different experiences, I have come to appreciate the power of aligning our outer goals with our inner purpose. Our purpose guides all of our decisions, whether we can articulate it or not. When we get clarity on our purpose and bringing our life into alignment with it, all parts of our life become an expression of our purpose. The result is greater fulfilment internally and greater impact externally. 

Corporate career

Before becoming a coach, I worked as an analyst and portfolio manager in the hedge fund business. I worked in London and New York, researching, investing in and managing relationships with the most highly regarded investment managers in the business, with ultimate responsibility for $1.6BN.

Being part of a rapidly growing business gave me a tremendous sense of purpose but it was only when I became a parent, that I started to appreciate the true depth and meaning of purpose.

Parenting

Parenting has been an eye-opening experience for me. In development terms, disruption and transformation go hand-in-hand and parenting has provided a constant stream of disruption over many years and continues to do so. This disruption has compelled me to constantly re-evaluate who I am and how I show up in the world, as well as providing a positive incentive to be the best person I can be. 

Parenting has also made me a part of something bigger than me and my story. It has broadened my perspective and given me a longer time horizon than I’ve ever had before. 

From a business perspective, parenting has given me a maturity, crucial to business, that no MBA or professional program could have. I have acquired a greater curiosity about people and the influences that shaped them, true patience that emerged from a deeper compassion for self and others, an ease in putting other’s needs first knowing that their success and my success are intertwined, a commitment to do what is right even if it makes me unpopular, and a strong belief in our collective humanity and connectivity.

My experience of parenting has made me very conscious of a massive, untapped resource within organisations: the parts of every employee that get left at the door when we come to work.

For this reason, I coach the whole person, helping you to acknowledge the value of all the parts of yourself and empowering you to bring your full self to everything you do.
