I had in the past tried other forms of coaching (personal training/nutrition counseling/career counseling) with temporary success but wondered if Alicia’s different approach could help me achieve more permanent results. Because of Alicia’s caring, sensitivity, sincerity and ability to deeply listen, she helped me gently realize the root of my issues. Even if I wasn’t sure what I wanted to discuss at my session, or didn’t quite feel up for ‘exploring’, I always left a session feeling excited and empowered. I feel vested in the strategies I have learned and feel I can recognize when I need to call upon them. Alicia is 100% focused on helping you succeed.Roseanne H.
I am so very thankful for the coaching I received from Alicia. I utilized her coaching at a time when I was inspired to take major action in my life and implement major change. My weekly sessions helped me stay grounded and focused through this process. I often felt overwhelmed, thrown off-course or filled with self-doubt. Alicia helped me see my own power and creativity and guided me to my OWN answers and solutions to the potential stumbling blocks I was experiencing. This was a very empowering process where I felt totally heard, listened to and respected on a deep level. I now have a greater understanding of myself and my own inner wisdom.Jen Hogan
During our coaching sessions Alicia provided a safe, non-judgmental space where she helped me become clear about what I wanted. She helped me sort through the self-talk that was getting in my way and identify outer obstacles while offering suggestions, guidance and support to work towards obtaining my goals for a happier, peaceful life. As a result of Alicia’s coaching, I once again honor my beliefs, my needs, my worth and myself. I also have a new business plan and am moving forwards towards my financial goals. Alicia made a huge difference in the way I view myself, others and life.Jane Petrin
Alicia was hired to help our executive level staff come together and identify new goals, and objectives for working together in a cohesive, value driven manner. Alicia has a great reputation in the field and after our initial phone call with Alicia, we were sure we had someone with the right skills and framework to begin helping us change and grow. In the team coaching process, we learned about our stress reaction levels, and how our energy affects our relationships with our colleagues and staff. In beginning to understand the importance of the energy we bring to every interaction, we became better prepared to infuse positive energy into our staff culture. As an executive-level team, we were able to let go of many of the plaguing issues of the past and focus on what we wanted to put forth into the agency for the future. We came together around these values and began to rebuild relationships with one another. Our team began to demonstrate strengths-based and relational practices with one another, modeling this for the entire agency. If you need help in changing staff culture, Alicia can be of great assistance. Her style is open, non-judgmental, and focused on solutions.Kim Selvaggi
Our senior management team’s ability to productively focus on defining and implementing the agency’s strategic direction was being impacted by personal differences of opinion and perspective. Having Alicia take our team through the Results Accelerator for Teams™ helped us achieve a higher level of self-awareness and comfort level in acknowledging and accepting personal vulnerabilities and opportunities for growth. Overall, individual growth has contributed to a more authentic level of teamwork and ability to contribute at a strategic level. One of Alicia’s greatest strengths is her ability to relate to a variety of individuals in a manner that leaves one feeling “safe” to explore and look inward. She makes sure to highlight and acknowledge the positive attributes while guiding attention to development areas. Alicia’s calm, respectful and focused approach keeps the conversation going while allowing for individuality.Marie MacLean
