"I hired Ana to help me work on a project. Little did I know what lay ahead for me:
- a terrible divorce happening,
- physical disabilities that complicated my will to live, and
- a campaign to run for NC House of Representatives in a very rural, Republican district.
Ana helped me to clarify what I wanted and needed to navigate the tumultuous waters of personal, physical, emotional, financial, and time challenges successfully with relative ease given the magnitude of what I took on and the variety of different forces affecting me. "
“I’m a lot more serene…I changed my direction, and I’m moving ahead and not spinning my wheels. I no longer am so compulsive about everything. I found my true north, and am now writing my legacy. I’m ahead of my 5 year plan!”
Competencies with Outcomes:
- Improved Personal Communications and Self-Awareness;
- Increased ability to delegate,
- Created support systems personally and professionally;
- Developed a culture focused on values and teamwork in her practice;
- Dramatically Increased Self-Care, Balance, Health and Fitness to regular daily practice;
- Expanded public awareness, network of peers, and state and national resources.
Before I started working with Ana, I felt challenged by key relationships in my personal and work life. It was exhausting, that feeling of being stuck and frustrated. I was like a hamster in a cage, not able to organize my thoughts and activities in a way that, in my mind, was productive. I wanted to do something but I didn’t know what.
Six months into coaching and I have increased my enjoyment of life and fun time by 50%, my self-awareness and effectiveness in relationships by 80%! I feel more confident in my communication skills and my role at the office, knowing myself as a leader with purpose. That is what, I discovered, had been missing. With Ana’s guidance and feedback, I renewed my obligation to the firm with new enthusiasm.
Ana is very intuitive, experienced and prepared. Most helpful for me were Ana’s powerful communication tools and her insight into interrupting thought processes that don’t get me anywhere. I look forward to continuing to develop my leadership and my legacy in the community.
Audrey Fannin Muck, Filmmaker, national board member of NOW.
· I increased my organization skills by over 80%;
· I stepped up my game by 88%,
· And I increased my communication skills by 85%.
In a coaching environment, Audrey developed new competencies that helped her to focus, be organized, work with deadlines, and to play much, much bigger: “I was even able to go to Europe for a month while others continued to work on the project!”
Meet Eunice, who decided to run for school board. In just 4 months, Eunice built a network of experienced political experts, created a liaison with the school administration, and developed a serious team dedicated to her success. Her appointment book is full, a banker has offered to be her treasurer, and she has donations coming in. AND, the official launch date is not for four months.
Eunice says, “Four months into coaching, and I have increased my ability to delegate by 40%, my life balance has increased by 40% and my time management by 30 % . I’m in control, creating the life I want, minute by minute. I have a new way of thinking, a team, and money in the bank! Ana has been my partner every step of the way!”
I know so many more people than I knew 6 months ago. People recognize me...I'm speaking out and up more. I make my presence known.
"Thank you, Ana, for changing my life by introducing me to my inner leader, improving my relationships with my family and the Better Business Bureau team, and for being a stand for me: always. Who you are for me is accountability, compassion, energy, insight and encouragement!"
Brian Wright, Executive Director and CEO for Better Business Bureau of Northwest North Carolina
I began giving myself better self-care, keeping my word with company managers, and talking about the corporate vision with the leadership team. I became aware of my strengths and values, and created a structure for my networking so that my family had more time with me. In addition to selling some very large contracts, I noticed that I was influencing company leaders to communicate with more integrity. I’ve added 67 companies to my database, raised $5,900 for a non-profit, and I’ve been invited to join their board. I am mentoring other professionals as well.
I am a catalyst for change and a stand for integrity. I now know myself as a person who causes growth in other people, the company and myself. I feel deeply satisfied when I am a contribution to others. I strive to be a leader that people look up to.
