The Power of Choice in Bolder Leadership

Individual Coaching

Want some space all to (and for) yourself to explore what’s really holding you back from becoming all you were meant to? 

Then this option is for you, and you deserve this special attention. 

(Not to mention how happy all the people who will be influenced and inspired by the newer, Bolder version of you will be.) 

Here’s how it works: 

What you can expect when working with us:

Regular (about every 3-4 weeks) 1-hour conversations (if virtual)

And, if we meet in person, we would suggest 1.5-2 hour sessions

Each of these conversations strives to reach “mini” goals – each of which lead up to the over-arching goal you have set for yourself.

Between each coaching conversation, a small piece of homework is usually suggested, which could take one of many different forms: an article to read, a clip to watch or some writing to do. This is meant to reinforce your learning in between our sessions and, very often, to bring to light new understandings of yourself.

Connection, Connect

Working With Teams

Are you ready to see the eyes of the humans working for/with you light up with the joy of belonging to something meaningful? 

And to see them enjoy connecting in meaningful ways with their teammates?

Would you like to see that joy turn into increased productivity, creativity and impact?

Then this option might be for you.

Here’s what our clients are saying:

“With Colleen as a coach, the journey has always been exciting. Progress has been made, week after week, and she was always encouraging me to keep moving forward while remaining patient. I am definitively recommending Colleen has a Coach: for yourself or for your team.”

– Frank Druet, End User Computing Director, ADP

“I am so grateful for this new way of relating, leading and inspiring – which I know will become more of a way of life with all of my stakeholders. And I am doing so with less self-doubt, more confidence and more purpose – probably the greatest gift I could have received from this time with Colleen.” 

– Sanae Mousannif, Head of Market Access & Public Affairs; Janssen/Johnson & Johnson

"Organizations Don’t Change, People Do."
– Richard Barrett

Inspiring Bolder Transformation

Many business coaches specialize in helping their clients with tactical and transactional activities. At ALI, our leadership coaching works with international leaders to facilitate transformation on a much deeper level.

That’s the tenet we operate from. In other words, it’s not one individual or team. Even with a changed policy, who can determine the course for an entire institution? Instead, organizations are made up of individuals who, when operating in alignment with each other and with the vision and values of the organization, together create transformation for the company. So it’s not the organization itself which charts a new course, it’s the people within it who do.

We believe that transformation always starts from within. Based on this principle, we help individuals and organizations to identify and understand their true goals so that they may align their actions and behaviors with their core values. This guides them to achieve lasting transformation – and to higher levels of personal and professional freedom, joy and fulfillment.

Commissioned by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the Global Coaching Client Study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers found that of study participants reported:

Is Coaching Worth The Investment?

80 %

Of companies reported that they at least made their investment back. But really, how can we put a price tag on the long-term benefits of experiencing greater freedom, joy, and fulfillment?

“You live, you learn.
You love, you learn.
You cry, you learn.
You lose, you learn
You laugh, you learn.
You choose, you learn
You ask, you learn.
You live, you learn.”
-Alanis Morissette
“You Learn”


Change Versus Transformation

Just like the caterpillar becomes a butterfly, that’s a true metamorphosis. It calls for a shift in mindset in the individual – and the organization. A shift in our consciousness happens, and returning to the “way things were” is no longer possible. 

That’s our definition of transformation. 

If you’re seeking lasting, meaningful fulfillment, you make a transformation – not a change.


Say Hello to the Bolder Version of You

Truth be told, it takes a lot of courage to be authentic in today’s world. So often we are asked what it means to be bolder. The answer is always the same: you get to decide that. It’s different for everyone. That’s part of what authenticity is all about.

Our purpose at ALI as change leadership facilitators is to help you transform into “bigger” versions of yourself. Your skills, education and confidence have taken you this far. Yet deep within, you know there’s so much more.

What Does Transformation Look Like?

Our clients often say that they are better able to get in touch with their true selves. They more clearly understand where their limiting beliefs about themselves and about what’s possible originate, and begin to muster the courage needed to step out of that old way of being which no longer works…into a life and career which are infinitely more fulfilling.

That might mean leaving a less satisfying job to take on a more fulfilling one, stepping away to focus on family, speaking up to claim your inner power, going after that promotion, or expanding your reach (or any combination of those). In short, it means you get to shine even more brightly…

Now let’s take those bolder moves – and soar to higher levels – together.
