Client Reviews for Ashley Adair

I can’t say enough about how invaluable Ashley is as a mentor and coach. Ashley has coached me through some difficult situations; not only as a manager, but as an employee, navigating through day-to-day ups and downs. She has taught me how to compartmentalize the important to the not-so-important issues and really focus on what I want to accomplish within my surroundings. I’ve gained some amazing tools from her that will live on in my everyday life and I’m excited to see that other people will benefit from her coaching.

From our first meeting, Ashley really made me think about what it was I wanted to do from professional standpoint. By structuring my goals in a way that I’d not thought of before and challenging me to focus on the things that really mattered to me and how I could achieve them, I ultimately found the right career path. Our monthly sessions reignited a diminished self-belief and hunger that inspired me to get back on track and find the job I wanted. Ashley’s caring and engaging demeanor offered the support I needed while still offering a critical lens to my intended outcomes. She has been and will continue to be a massive help toward achieving my career goals.

Working with Ashley for coaching has been incredibly beneficial for my career. I started working with her just as I took over a new management position, just as both of the managers directly above me left for maternity leave. I was in a time of rapid growth in my career, without a traditional support system. This meant I was navigating a ton of stress and ambiguous situations daily, without consistent feedback from a manager. Luckily, Ashley was there to provide perspective on difficult coaching situations, navigating new peer relationships with other managers, responding to constructive feedback from my direct reports, and working through my personal challenges while still being effective at work. I appreciated how we would periodically check in on the progress that I’d made over time, allowing myself to see my progression from a timid new manager who was learning to trust myself, to someone who is confident in my instincts, decisions, and ability to build relationships across my organization
