TESTIMONIALS

Michelle - US Government

Allison's coaching is a game-changer!  She's helped me think through some significant life decisions including professional and personal components.  She asks very intuitive questions which have really helped me to see my obstacles through a different lens, so I can adjust my actions and get different results. She immediately put me at ease and I felt really comfortable talking with her.  I highly recommend her!

James - Managing Director, Compliance Consulting Firm

Allison's support over the past twelve years has helped me gain the confidence needed to develop a globally-focussed career that has led me to fulfilling opportunities in Asia and Europe. In my discussions with Allison, she has helped me clearly understand my aspirations and more importantly, she has taught me how to articulate these in my conversations with supervisors and managers. Allison is accessible, she is a great listener but she has also challenged many of my pre-existing notions to help me think more creatively about my career.

David - Global HR Business Partner

Allison has a rare ability to connect with business professionals and help them eliminate obstacles to their success.  She's is particularly effective working with young professionals confronted with work or life transitions.

Jo - Marketing Manager

After hearing Allison present at a webinar, I knew she would make a wonderful life & professional coach. Since hiring her in July 2021, she has quickly figured out my core themes/needs and has been communicating in a way that has produced many AHA moments.  I appreciate her approach and style, as well as her response time in between sessions.  Most of all, she has a great sense for when I need her accountability versus grace during our sessions. I feel honored and fortunate to have stumbled upon Zest Global and highly recommend anyone who wants to move forward in their goals to reach out to her today!

Grafton - Consumer Products Executive

I recommend Allison as an executive coach to any professional looking to really take it to the next level. Allison is relatable, authentic and thorough. Allison will always have your best interest in mind throughout the process. She's an expert on organization, relationships and strategy. Allison was essential as I transitioned to lead a new business area groups. I still use the strategies she helped me craft to transition into new teams.

Allison worked to understand in detail what my goals, responsibilities and career aspirations were and helped determine how I could modify my approach to overcome hurdles and my craft my own authentic leadership style. Allison's strategies and coaching helped me lead successful, organized and effective teams.
 

Luke - Entrepreneur

Allison’s level of commitment and genuineness are difficult to find in these trying times. Her techniques were instrumental in getting me and my business back on track. I can’t thank her enough!

Medy - US Government

Allison has a great style and really listens. I instantly trusted her.  Her questions and insight have helped me make some huge life decisions. Contact her whether you need coaching for yourself or for your team. You will not regret it. Thank you Allison.

Judi - Higher Education Specialist

As someone who is in the yoga and wellness industry (I'm a teacher) and who has worked with life and career coaches as a client, Allison was a breath of fresh air.  She's authentic, asks thought provoking questions which lead to self inquiry and clarity, is kind and funny, observant and intelligent, able to filter and make material accessible, is direct and compassionate and honestly gets result.

She has an AMAZING understanding of what inspires and energizes  people from having an International background which gives her a unique multi-cultural perspective, as well as a keen and almost clinical understanding of what drives and motivates people from her multi-industry experience in the Corporate world.  Her greatest strengths to me are the way she is able to integrate these two:  the professional and the individual.  I find that coaches tend to fall or lean one way or the other but Allison is truly an example of masterfully balancing both.  I have resourced her both professionally and personally to rave results and continue to stay connected and refer her regularly to anyone who is feeling stagnant or looking for support in their growth trajectory.
 

Zest Global is a unique coaching experience and I am so grateful for having had Allison's support and wisdom at crucial moments both in my career and in my life.

Crista - Entrepreneur

Allison is an exceptional coach who asks powerful questions that shifts perspective and supports forward movement.

Melissa - Global Talent Management

Allison is highly skilled as an executive coach and working with her allowed me to elevate my leadership and impact. She started with a 360 and personality inventory that helped me identify how I was being perceived by others and opportunities to become even more effective as a leader. Then through our 6-month engagement, she built a deep level of trust with me and asked me powerful questions at just the right time. Her methodical approach mixed with her ability to make me feel comfortable opening up, enabled me to gain new insights about myself. It was hard work, emotionally exhausting, and a vulnerable experience but it paid off in spades. I changed the way I thought and felt about challenging situations, built resilience, and grew more comfortable navigating through complex and ambiguous projects.Allison is highly skilled as an executive coach and working with her allowed me to elevate my leadership and impact.

Margaret - Attorney

I couldn’t recommend Allison with greater enthusiasm! Her willingness to speak with authenticity is matched by her compassion, just as her commitment to helping leaders (both current and aspiring) through job transitions is complimented by her ability to assess some of the more fundamental “life” issues that can be sticking points for all of us. Allison also has an intuitive ability to think both pragmatically and creatively about her clients’ professional challenges. Importantly, while the field of coaching can find itself burdened by people with very high opinions of themselves and their own career accomplishments, Allison is not hindered by an inflated ego. She is accomplished in her own right, but is led by her experience, her engaging demeanor, and her sincerity. I recommend Allison to anyone looking to make a shift, or simply to have an insightful and skilled partner in navigating the complex landscape of career and leadership that we all face today.
