About Anna D. Banks, MAS, CHBC

Executive Director of The John Maxwell Team

As an Executive Director of The John Maxwell Team, I am certified to facilitate, speak, train and coach individuals and groups in the areas of leadership development, professional skills and personal growth. Trained and mentored by John Maxwell and mentors of his world-class faculty, I am equipped with the tools, resources and experience to help you and your team improve your productivity, performance and profitability. Whether you are looking for a facilitator for group workshops, corporate training in leadership, speaking, sales, or coaching skills for your leaders, or a speaker for your next event, I have access to exclusive content that is only available through a certified Executive Director of the John Maxwell Team to help you reach your goals and objectives.

Are you at a turning point in your life? Do you feel that you have a greater purpose? Sometimes, when no one is looking, we dream. We think of everything we should’ve been, everything we could be. We think that it is impossible to follow that dream and that if we follow our dream or pursue our passion, we may have to take a risk.

The roads to achieving our dreams may not always be easy, but it is possible to get there. Success is always possible when we are willing to take responsibility for our growth and take intentional steps toward fulfilling our goals, our dreams. Accountability is a mindset that is supported by the actions of Intentionality. Simply, if we live accountably and act intentionally, we will realize the risk we took was well worth it. The role YOU play in your professional and personal development is critical to YOUR success.

Since 1994 I’ve served as a consultant, trainer, speaker, coach, and entrepreneur. My experience as a special education teacher, adjunct college professor, business owner, global career development facilitator (GCDF), organizational leader, and member of the John Maxwell Team have more than prepared me to assist you with your goal to enhance your leadership skills and/or those of your team or organization. My passion is to help youth and adults stretch beyond their current position and mindset to reach their goals and live their dreams.

I am dedicated to adding value to the lives of students and adults and help them reach their full potential. Using DISC personality profile assessments and John Maxwell Team resources in customized coaching programs, teachings, and speaking engagements allow me to provide you with essential tools that you need to live your dream.
