Founder & CEO, Dr. Anita Enterprises, Inc.

Dr. Anita Polite-Wilson helps leaders and teams in high stress situations successfully navigate complexity and change together. Her mission includes advising and coaching leaders at all organizational levels on their journey toward accepting and adapting to the unique needs of today’s workforce which reflects more diverse individuals, spanning five generations, requiring dynamic teams that constantly evolve.

Working with leaders for more than 20 years, Dr. Anita has been successful at shifting the paradigm of change management from “check-the-box-initiatives” having little or no impact, to “change-the-culture-behaviors” that will noticeably improve collaborations. She has studied workforce trends for over ten years and creates programs that increase employee engagement, retention, and productivity for corporate, government, and nonprofit entities of all sizes across various industries.

Her research has shown that people who feel connected through joint dialogue will discover that the answers to common challenges are found within individuals, teams, and organizational systems. Considering herself to be “a facilitator of conversations that matter” Dr. Anita defines client success as aligning People, Passion, and Purpose.
