Tell me about your working with Ala.
I think there are some misconceptions about what coaching is. Specifically, that a coach does not tell you what do to do solve your problems. Ala did not give me the answers but she partnered with me to unlock the answers that were right for me. Through coaching with Ala I realized that I had all the pieces to the puzzle all along and her coaching helped me to figure out how I wanted to put them all together.
How has the use of coaching improved your business and/or personal life?
Ala challenged my thinking and explored my values and beliefs to get at the essence of what really matters to me. This included determining what I want to do in my life, why I haven’t done it yet and how I want to move forward which achieving the goals I’ve set for myself.
Coaching with Ala was transformative and helped me to set myself up for success.
- The ability to change the inner dialogue I was having with myself and limiting beliefs that were holding me back. That created positive change in my relationship with myself as well as others.
- Through my coaching I gained confidence and feel empowered by my own abilities to create change in my life.
- She helped to bring new awareness to themes that kept coming up during our conversations. She helped me reframe things I didn’t even notice. She helped me to recognize my blind spots and brought new perspective – really holding up the proverbial mirror and reflecting back to me what she was hearing and observing.
