A leader empowers, inspires, and motivates others.
Quite simply, a leader is someone who leads from within with an outward mindset. How can I be more helpful?
How can I serve others in this moment?
How am I contributing? Leaders understand that a rising tide lifts ALL boats, and they choose the role of building others up.
I can't thank Allison enough for the time and commitment she's invested in me over the last year. She was critical in helping me push through boundaries and roadblocks I set for myself. She helped me "see" things differently and always for the better. I'm incredibly excited and optimstic about my next chapter. She had a lot of impact in this decision by helping me clearly see what I needed and what was most important to me - meaningful connection. Thank you Allison for being you and never wavering.
Before I started working with Allison, I was insecure about my business and worry was a constant companion of mine. It had me hiding who I was for fear that I wouldn’t fit in or be rejected. With Allison’s compulsive curiosity, I was able to let go of worry and trust that I was going to be fine. I came out of hiding and am now confident when talking about my business. I have definitely discovered my own internal strength. There have been a lot of firsts as a result of my work with Allison, and they have shown me that I can be me in both my personal and professional life.
HEIDI, TEAM LEAD
I felt like I was stuck on autopilot, going through the motions, meeting other people's expectations, fighting to keep my work from interfering with my life, lacking the option to leave my corporate gig, and having no idea what I would do even if I did.
Thankfully, I found Allison! While working with Allison, I was able to make some subtle distinctions (of significant impact) about myself and my passions. Like recognizing that it is the act of creating, not being creative that drives me. Allison also helped me (despite my often steadfast resistance) to acknowledge and embrace the fears that have held me back. I now know that I am not stuck on autopilot; I just need to be willing to flip the switch to shut it off. Despite identifying as a leader for as long as I can remember, I finally feel like I am the one at the controls. I am still afraid, but instead of fueling excuses, my fears give me hope that it will all be worth it.
