Dr. Anna Kaminska

Executive Coach for Businesswomen

A Quick Snapshot

I am a Certified Executive & Leadership Coach, international speaker and radio show expert with a doctoral degree and a background in law and psychology. For 10 years, I was a construction and real estate lawyer in Europe, working 70-hour weeks in a male dominated field. Successful? Absolutely. But amidst that success, there was disrespect and inequality. And this is what led me on a journey of self-discovery that eventually uncovered the why behind my feelings of inadequacy, doubt and unfulfillment.

Those feelings are now far gone and my mind is renewed with a fresh perspective. Now I’m here to help other women achieve the same.

The Unabbreviated Version

I was born and raised in Poland. My whole life I wanted to be a lawyer. Not only was I personally drawn to the career, but also people in my life were continually telling me how perfectly suited I was to the profession. And for nearly a decade, it appeared as though they were right…

I received a law and psychology degree from the University of Warsaw, with a minor focus in philosophy. I completed an apprenticeship to become a member of the Bar in Poland, received a PhD in law and studied English Law at Cambridge University. I officially became a lawyer in 2007 and worked at esteemed firms in Poland.

But over time, it became undoubtedly apparent that I was unfulfilled. So I invested in a life coach.

My journey to get to where I am today

When my coach and I first began our sessions, I was looking for an answer to a very specific question: why is this glass ceiling blocking me and how can I break it?

I worked hard to find out what obstructed my path, what limited me and how I could become better.

I discovered the reasons why I sometimes hit this glass ceiling – the reasons were inside me, not outside. 

Throughout the coaching process, one by one I began to answer critical questions for myself… What is holding me back? What is the source of the glass ceiling effect? Is there anything I can do differently? How I can change myself to get what I want? What’s my purpose?

Together, we uncovered that my key interests and skills revolved around people, psychology, relationships and behaviour. This was my true passion. There was a new path for me.

And that feeds right into my compelling vision and mission today:

  • To help women reach the top and be leaders
  • To teach women how NOT to be limited by the glass ceiling
  • To transform subordinate personalities into leader personalities.

I decided to leave law and move into the professional and personal coaching space. I attended coaching school and became a certified coach. I started my business and created my own professional development and personal transformation program exclusively designed for seasoned businesswomen: Breaking the Glass Ceiling. I also began working at a university, teaching young professionals social and leadership skills essential to business success. Every day, I am excited to wake up (some nights I can’t even sleep because my head spins with all the new ideas I want to put into action).

I feel how different my life is. I’m living my best life NOW – not postponing it for the future. Not only am I a changed professional within the workforce, but I’m also a changed person within society. My thoughts are different. My actions are different. My perceptions are different. And it’s because of those changes that I have better relationships, better clients, more happiness and greater success.

 

It’s also what proved to me that the “glass ceiling” is nothing more than an illusion.
