“Anne Hurtubise provided 18-month long coaching programs over a period of 8 years for numerous groups of high potential managers as part of a broad-based leadership development program at Inco. They universally ranked her coaching module number 1 in their program, citing it as one of the most important and inspiring parts of their development.

Anne has a gift for working with managers to bring out their best, cultivate their leadership competencies, and help them manage the complexities and stresses that go with leadership. She focuses on assessing and coaching them in Emotional Intelligence capabilities, which they may then apply to their own teams. She also helps them enhance their physical health and emotional strength.

Anne uses the well-validated 360 degree tool developed by Hay Group, based on solid research by Dan Goleman, as the basis for her coaching. Anne was successful in working with high potential managers from all over the world, often by phone.

The fact that she’s bilingual seemed to help when dealing with managers from China and Indonesia who had to be coached in English as a second language.”

(former) Director, , Organizational Development, Inco Ltd.

Inmet Mining has had the opportunity and privilege to work with Anne Hurtubise, President of Emotional Intelligence Corporation, for the past eight years. Over that time, Anne has worked with many of our executives and senior management team as part of our Company’s leadership development initiative and the impact on and insight gained by the participants in this group has been invaluable.

Anne’s passion for her work is obvious and is demonstrated in the care she has for her clients. Her skills and expertise in coaching and her encouragement of our team has resulted in both personal and professional growth and success for many of our participants.

In fact, six participants of the Emotional Intelligence initiative at Inmet have received recognition for their outstanding leadership skills by being awarded a leadership of the year award while participating in EI coaching. I am confident that this result is a testament to the success of the Emotional Intelligence initiative at Inmet.

I wholeheartedly recommend Anne as an outstanding coach, having both seen within my colleagues (and personally benefited from) the positive value of her work and support.”

I can’t thank you enough for the past year working to figure out what makes me “tick” and how I can “tick” a lot better as a leader. You have helped me see I can do so much more and I can fight back those “pesty” demons. I will have your supportive voice and advice arming me for a long time. Here is a testimonial of the great work you do behind the scenes – for which I am being credited in demonstrated results. 
“I was given an opportunity in 2011 to move into a more senior leadership role which I felt was a stretch assignment in terms of number of staff and breadth of functional areas for which I would be accountable. Working with Anne through that assignment was invaluable to meet this leadership challenge. 
I have come out the program with a greater self-confidence, useful tools and understanding of what I can do to continue to improve and develop as a leader in all aspects of my life. I could never have imagined what a difference this program was going to make. It definitely works if you are ready to look in the mirror and commit to fix what you see. And forever I will remember a key lesson I learned with Anne –  that leadership is not about me but about the people we are entrusted to lead” 

I know you will continue your good work to make better leaders of many more like me.

All the best,


Vale Inco Inc.

I was a leader of a new division where I had to increase productivity. With this program I was able to readjust my leadership style, the staff is more open now, we are able to see humour in this and laugh.  The team is gelling. Productivity and accountability has increased. Hector

On our 2 months program of this special coaching, I was able to understand my problems to communicate with others and tackle my emotional self-control issues. I was able to keep my job thanks to you Anne and I got a raise.

Futhermore, I have more energy thanks to pointing out right food to eat during the day. I also have a positive impact at home. I have more energy so my wife now gives me a to do list. 🙂 Dan

Anne’s coaching helped me to be a more assertive and confident manager. I developped tact and diplomacy.  I can now disagree with someone without loosing my temper. I can share my feelings.  I developped an Iron Hand in a Velvet Glove. Thank you! David

Thanks to you Anne I overcame my fear of public speaking.  I am now looking to do more and more presentations. I have learned what it is to be a leader. Stephanie

The 360 assessment and coaching process was a defining period in my career and life. The process provided an opportunity to see myself and my actions through a much different perspective, that of everyone else.

The Leadership Development Coaching process changed my life not just on a professional level but also a personal one. The characteristics of behavior targeted by the program are not bounded by the walls of any office. It made me a better person which will affect not only my colleagues, but my family and friends.”

Working with Anne was a highlight of my career. She helped me to develop my self-awareness and emotional intelligence, both of which are critical to hone when in any leadership role. She is astute with her observations, thorough with her commentary and feedback, and allowed me to stop, pause and take time to think about past, present or future situations and how best to deal with them based on my desired outcome. I would highly recommend working with Anne one-on-one to take your leadership skills to the next level! Josh MacKinnon

Anne and I have worked together for more than 20 years, going back to Inco days, and she has assisted me in seeing things that have helped fine-tune and improve my emotional intelligence and executive presence. Seeing the significant improvements that she can achieve with coaching, I have offered this opportunity to more than twenty high potential professionals in the Eriez global flotation business over the past eight years, and our productivity, group cohesion, and effectiveness have all benefitted immensely.

There is an undeniable return on investment from this training, and Anne’s coaching has changed my life and our organization’s culture. Eric Bain Wasmund
