From Broadway to blacksmithing to divorce, death and Dubai, Annelies M Gentile, MA, PCC is no stranger to change. She is a pioneer thought-leader with a presence-based approach to resilience, helping professionals navigate change, mindfully, creatively and successfully. Having traveled 22 countries and 47 US states, Annelies discovered that most people want the same three things: to be heard, to feel safe and to hold a sense of belonging. How we get there is what triggers conflict and separation. Getting comfortable with what’s uncomfortable is important and matters to all of us.

Her education includes a master’s degree in coaching (Maryland University of Integrative Health), additional graduate studies in creativity, conflict transformation and peacebuilding (European Graduate School in Switzerland), transformative leadership (Tai Sophia Institute), and is professionally accredited with ICF (International Coaching Federation).

Her client list includes leaders, entrepreneurs, and executives from companies to fields of government, healthcare, law, education, non-profits, arts, tech, science and sales including IBM, City of Raleigh and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Annelies believes the secret to success is compassion.

She lives in Raleigh, NC with her sweetheart Greg Whitt of Learn more about Annelies and her new book From Chaos to Calm :: Leading Change from the Inside Out at

Summary Statement
In an increasingly disconnected world, it’s important to find creative ways to reconnect to ourselves and one another, especially when facing or leading change. When we step back and tune in, we can see that chaos is a calling to lead differently, to listen differently, to facilitate change differently. It's an invitation for transformation and resilience, for radical acceptance then radical creativity.
Coaching Philosophy
I believe we’re all in this together and when we regard each other as human beings not human-doings we can move beyond criticism and stuck, and get to the best part, which is creating and solving problems together. Excellence isn’t just acquired, it’s lived.
