Anese Cavanaugh

Anese Cavanaugh is devoted to helping people show up and bring their best selves to the table in order to create significant positive impact in their lives. She is the creator of the IEP Method® (Intentional Energetic Presence®), an advisor and thinking partner to leaders and organizations in the design, health care, service, and innovation spaces, and author of Contagious Culture: Show Up, Set the Tone, and Intentionally Create an Organization That Thrives(McGraw Hill, 11/15) and The Leader You Will Be: An Invitation (ACI, 2018).

As a leading voice on intention, energy, and presence in leadership and culture, Anese helps people unlock greater leadership potential, collaborate more inspiringly, create more openly, intuit more bravely, and lead more joyfully and effectively. Top innovators and executives in companies like IDEO, Zingerman’s, Cooper, Joie de Vivre, Fitbit, Vistaprint, Nike, IBM, Freeman Forward, Kaiser Permanente, and others have engaged with Anese to strengthen team health, maximize leadership impact, and optimize company culture. She’s also worked with leaders, employees, practitioners, and organizations in the following industries: legal, law enforcement, military, mental health, sales, marketing, design, finance, education, real estate, hospitality, health care, inner city youth programs, social entrepreneurship, and foster care.

In addition to consistently growing and teaching the IEP Method® — and teaching others to do so as well, she writes regularly for Inc.com in her column “Showing Up”, has appeared in publications like HBR, The Huffington Post, CEO.com, the NY Times and others, serves as a regular guest of multiple podcasts and radio shows, guest lectures at educational institutions (like Stanford, University of Michigan, Brandman, SAI), and speaks on stages around the world about Showing Up.

Her next book, CONTAGIOUS YOU: Unlock Your Power to Influence, Lead, and Create the Impact You Want, releases this Fall with McGraw-Hill.
