performance coaching

Ashley’s unique method and personal approach to coaching, empowers clients to reach their highest potential as mindful and effective leaders.


Why this Work?

Ashley’s passionate about doing her small part in raising consciousness on the planet. In the wise words of Dr. Maya Angelou, “When you know better, you do better.” Ashley believes that when we invest in our own professional/personal growth, the whole world benefits. She believes that developing into more aware, balanced and effective leaders adds tremendous value to ourselves and to our family members, our staff, co-workers, friends, organization and our community.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their professional and personal potential. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (also known as NLP) is one of the models Ashley uses to help clients increase their personal and professional effectiveness and resilience to everyday challenges. NLP is a highly effective system that aims to change patterns of emotional and mental behavior in order to enable you to achieve more success and mindfulness in your work and every daily life and relationships.

How it Works

Ashley consults with clients one-on-one to mindfully enhance professional/personal performance and leadership skills. Coaching can take place face-to-face, via phone or Skype. Your first interaction with Ashley will be an exploratory consult call to discuss your needs, goals and your “Why” for coaching. Ashley will work with you to build a customized action plan that focuses on transformation and results.

WHAT CLIENTS HAD TO SAY


 

“My leadership coaching work with Ashley helped me grow as a professional, manager and a person!  Ashley’s breadth of professional experience comes through in every session and she combines that real world experience, heart and actionable advice with encouragement and support that leaves you confident to be your absolute best!”

Laura., Director: Junior Achievement of Southeastern Pennsylvania


"I worked with Ashley as my professional coach for one year and it was a phenomenal experience. At the time, I was newer to managing a mid-size team and I needed an expert to help me sift through the many layers of management land I often found myself in. Ashley has a beautiful way of getting you to uncover the root of your challenges, while providing you the support and confidence to fix what may be temporarily broken. I’d leave our coaching sessions with unique insights, practical tools that I could immediately apply on the job and a deeper appreciation for my role as a leader. Working with Ashley was the best investment in my development in this last year, not only as a leader/manager but as a whole person.”

Andrew., Senior Manager: National Public Radio


“When I first met Ashley, I was dying a slow death in a cubicle somewhere frustrated with my career choices and painfully conscious that I wasn't using my natural gifts. I knew I was missing out on life but I was paralyzed by my insecurities, worried that I was wrong about what I had to offer the world. As Ashley coached me I began to identify life standards and form attainable goals out of seemingly unreachable ones. If you know you want more from life but don't know where to start, Ashley will draw you a map. If you know what you want to accomplish but lack the tools, she'll hand you the ones that make the most sense. If like me you're piddling around with your gifts because you're too afraid to use them, Ashley will alternately give you a solid push and a warm hug. I love this girl! Ashley played an integral part in guiding me to where I am today. One year after my coaching began, I've moved across the country to a city that inspires me, getting paid to do what I've dreamed of all my life (no cubicles in sight) with the most important person in my life. If you see her once, you'll be back again. Mental and emotional clarity are very addictive things!

Hana H., Los Angeles, CA


 

"Ashley's coaching has provided me with specific tools to help me navigate life’s challenges and help put me on the path to attain cherished lifelong goals. Her remarkable ability to truly listen to her clients and then provide practical and workable solutions or suggestions in a compassionate and understanding way is what, in my opinion, sets her apart from the competition. Successful people from all walks of life can usually attribute their success in whole or in part to a qualified and motivating mentor. By choosing to work with Ashley you are making the smart choice to invest in yourself."

De A., Philly, PA


"I reached out to Ashley because I was feeling stuck, both personally and professionally. I knew she'd be supportive and willing to help, but it's more than just kindness and encouragement she offers. She has done the work herself and worked hard to embrace opportunities and experiences to grow herself so that she can be a true partner in the process. She has the ability to remove the filters that we unknowingly tend to look through in reflecting on our own experiences, and she offers clarity when it can be difficult to find on our own. In a field that is ever-growing, and sometimes intimidating or misunderstood, Ashley is someone who delivers what she promises, and she does it with unconditional positive regard, honesty, curiosity, commitment and compassion. If you've heard about her or even met her briefly, you probably have a feeling she's the real deal. Trust that feeling."

Sky, M., Boston, MA


"Since working with Ashley, she has helped me think more positively and has given me amazing tools that I will use for the rest of my life. She has also helped me to understand relationships in my life that I struggle with and how to have a better outlook on them. I absolutely love her energy! Before I started working with her I had extreme anxiety and a hard time dealing with the stresses in my life. I can now use the tools she has given me to avoid going back to that place. I enjoy reading my journal and her recaps from our sessions. I'm grateful for the time I've had with Ashley and the wonderful direction she has given me to improve my life."

Andrea A., Las Vegas, NV
