Sarah has a system that works to pull out core issues, and she does a wonderful job of creating accountability, which as a leader I need in order to keep my business moving forward. She is a fantastic listener, genuinely cares, and I love how she has a coaching worksheet or tool for nearly every challenge I have in my business.

Sarah’s business coaching has been transformative for my business. It has allowed us to create culture by design verses by default. Sarah is great about setting actionable goals and actionable steps for me to take to reinforce the lessons that she teaches in her coaching. Through taking those actions, I’ve developed new habits that transformed my life and view.

I have worked with Sarah for a number of years for individual Executive Coaching and facilitation of business meetings. I’ve also utilized her to help my company implementation of the EOS System. In all cases, I have had outstanding results. She is well trained, organized, engaged, and unafraid to call things as they are. Our best results come from an longer term engagement where she really gets to know the people and dig into the most challenging issues to help breakthroughs occur.

I have had the privilege to work with Sarah as my coach for the last couple years. We have been working on some significant subjects during this transitional phase of my life. During my coaching sessions, I am comfortable discussing everything and she handles the intensity I bring to each session. I’m proud to say with her help to make me the best I can be, we are well on our way.

Like most leaders in large organizations, my calendar is full, but I always look forward to my coaching sessions with Sarah and make them a priority. Sarah’s questions and insights have helped me to see old issues from entirely new perspectives. The progress I’ve made in achieving my work-related goals is having a positive impact in my personal life as well. This is one of the best investments I’ve made in myself and in my career.

In working with Sarah, it’s hard to describe the insights that are occurring primarily because, it seems, there are so many. I’m grateful to Sarah for helping me unlock those insights. Thank you for imparting your knowledge and wisdom, and giving me so much to contemplate.

Sarah has been working with our team and the progress has been amazing. It hasn’t always been easy, but we’ve come to a point where our team has a better understanding of their roles, responsibilities, how they fit together, and what needs to be done. I know that everyone on our team has enjoyed the journey and the results. It’s unbelievable how far we’ve come!

My individual coaching sessions have gone so well, ExitBig engaged Sarah to implement EOS, which is setting the course for my company to accomplish our goals in the future. Her skill set to help my team work through challenging issues has set us up for success. I would highly recommend Sarah to anybody as an EOS Implementer. It’s been a game changer for us.

It is rare that someone can come into your business with no prior knowledge of your specific organization and make such a positive impact in such a short period of time. I am particularly impressed with Sarah’s ability to help us work through issues with careful questioning, as well as her ability to guide us through without solving the problem for us.

EOS is one system I believe every entrepreneurial business should implement as soon as they have the capital to do so. It has provided our firm with stronger direction, better clarity of our objectives, and has created a system for resolving problems while aligning our goals for the team. Sarah has done an excellent job of working with us. Her character and genuine want to help is something that resonates the second you meet her. Her facilitation of the EOS system has been done to the highest degree.

Sarah has facilitated a YPO forum facilitation for my YPO Forum. I feel it was one of the best all around forum facilitations I’ve ever experienced. I’m fortunate to have been in EO and YPO forums for over 18 years and Sarah did excellent. She was great at getting the group to share the 5% very soon into our facilitation and our group rated Sarah with all 9’s or 10’s (out of a 10 rating)

I have worked with Sarah side by side for several years now individually and with my organization. I believe Sarah’s background brings a unique perspective to the business place. She has been phenomenal at mining for conflict, that may otherwise be overlooked, resulting in deeper interpersonal relationships and a more successful business. Sarah has skillfully helped us navigate significant change within our organization, including the implementation of the EOS platform.

During our EOS Annual Planning Days, Sarah facilitated a discussion on team health specifically related to communication. After education and coaching, we were able to recognize signs of destructive communication as well as the negative effects of artificial harmony. Sarah’s coaching has led to more authentic communication where team members are willing to risk voicing their opinions which has resulted in a higher functioning team.

Anything I could say about Allison would be an understatement. Her coaching has supported me through the loss of one child and the birth of another. She’s grieved with me, helped prepare me for birth and motherhood, and guided me through the postpartum period. During some of my most difficult periods, Allison has always been a compassionate voice of reason. During some of my most celebratory moments, she’s right there being the cheerleader that everyone deserves. Her empathy, precision of thought, and clarity of language make her one of the most gifted and impactful teachers I’ve ever met.

Allison’s strength is in her subtlety. Our conversations resonate long after our sessions. I’ve had many moments where I’ll remember something Allison had said to me days or even months prior, but only in the moment where I must finally apply her advice do I fully understand what she was trying to communicate to me all along. I trust Allison implicitly. She’s often said to me, “I’m cheering you on from afar” and I believe her.

Kimberly

Coaching with Allison literally changed my life. Allison taught me that I was ultimately responsible for what I wanted, and empowered me to dream big, take chances, and whole-heartedly support myself for the first time in my life. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of the work we did together. I am constantly remembering things she said, advice she gave, and tools she taught me – all of which continue to help me manifest this life that I love.
Moriah
MoriahStudent and mother of three in Baltimore
Coaching with Allison is the best decision I have made! We worked together at a time when I was overwhelmed and felt like I was just a mother, student, and homemaker, but I knew I wanted to do more. Through her coaching I was able to break through mental and emotional barriers so I could see clearly what I was offering and what I had to offer. Her encouragement helped me to follow my passion for supporting military families and helped me to make my business a reality. Allison has an amazing intuition during coaching calls and you feel safe and free to be completely transparent with her. I always feel better after a coaching call. I truly feel she improved my life immensely with her encouragement, coaching, and insight! So much so that I purchased her coaching services as a birthday present for a friend! My friend came back to me with raving reviews as I knew she would.
