Welcome to Acclivity Performance

Could your organization use an infusion of teamwork, motivation & leadership?

Acclivity Performance can do just that with customized training, organizational development, and audience-favorite keynote presentations. 

Leading Without Authority

The greatest difference between leadership and management is that while management is denoted by title, leadership is an art that someone at any organizational level may demonstrate. Over 90% of leadership occurs from the middle, not the top of the organization.

I attended the Women’s Chamber of Commerce luncheon where you spoke, and I cannot help but sing your praises!!  You are truly a Wonder Woman and I very much appreciated your openness and candor – it was quite refreshing and moving, to say the least!  I just can’t thank you enough.  I walked out of there feeling so uplifted and energized, and from the comments I heard from other ladies, I know I’m not alone in that regard.  Well done!

– Melinda Clary, URS Corporation

Our company recently use Anne for two types of training, and it was amazing. Our small company walked away motivated and with the tools we needed to move our company forward in the right direction. Our team walked away with information that we could use right away and we are already seeing great results. I would recommend her to any business! 

– Kathy Tautenhahn, Owner, Amazing Spaces

I was fortunate to get to hear Anne speak recently.   I hadn’t been to the group’s meeting in a while and went solely because of the reviews I read about Anne and her speaking style. I wasn’t disappointed! Her talk was funny, engaging, motivating and inspirational. She really connected with the audience, getting us laughing and sympathizing throughout the discussion.  Anne is one of the most entertaining and motivating speakers I’ve heard at a networking event in a very long time. I’m so happy that I attended!

– Melissa Ek, ekMEDIA

I saw Anne speak about leadership at the 2011 Texas Association of School Administrators conference and was totally impressed. She has an excellent way of presenting information in an entertaining yet educational way. I could have listened for another hour, and for me with so many other demands competing for my time, that is saying a lot!

– Loren Traylor, Vice President of Business Development, Appleton Learning

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful presentation you gave to our division. When we returned to work, it was as if our division was transformed. People who don’t ordinarily smile were smiling, and people who have never really said much to me, expressed their appreciation. Thank you for coming out and giving us the jump start we needed to go from good to GREAT.

– Lisa Harrison, Texas Parks and Wildlife

I was privileged to meet Anne for the first time at a recent networking event. What a breath of fresh air she was! Not only did she have good advice, but she enthused the audience through laughter and charm. The room of women were able to connect to Ann through her stories, and the genuine person that comes across when she speaks. If you get a chance to hear Anne, I highly recommend it.

– Yvette Brooks-James, Advanced Business Machines

Anne’s presentation set the positive tone I so needed to hear yesterday morning. Angels show up when we least expect it yet when we need them the most.  Anne is amazing!

Anne’s presentation was a success from the word GO!  As a communications organization we are adept at public relations and publicity but, we were unprepared for the crowd we had and ended up having to set up an additional table for all the attendees who came.  Her talk received not only the most people in attendance; but also, the best reviews.  At a recent leadership transition meeting one of the participants commented, “Anne was my favorite speaker all year!”
