PostHeaderIcon What We Do

We meet with you and find out what you really need. This sounds simple yet so often, easy solutions are given prior to a comprehensive scope of work. Easy solutions often result in nods of heads and 3 months later there is little follow up on any recommendations.

We take more of a coaching approach where we probe and help you come up with efficient solutions that work, as you know your business best. Through a solid scope of work we determine your needs. Perhaps the solution is coaching to address habits and attitudes, performance and leadership issues, or training which increases skills and knowledge, or group facilitation/retreats.

Our role is to help surface answers that are often buried or hidden behind familiar ways of conducting life and business. When time is invested in the scope of work process the results are more satisfying. If we don’t have the capability we know people who do, and will make referrals.


What is coaching?

Coaching is an interactive encounter between coach and client, that helps individuals and organizations find actionable answers, so the client can sustain success and even go beyond. Areas include:

Business and career development
Relationships and family
Personal development
Health and wellness

How does coaching work?

Essentially we help you focus on strengths to turn challenges into opportunities and flourish. Our approach is a Strategy Focused Developmental Coaching System that integrates personal leadership with business strategy.
Work Well and Live Well is our motto.

Our intention is for you to feel safe by providing a sage, open and confidential environment. The coach listens, observes, gives feedback, asks questions, and offers challenges, which can stimulate ideas. The client’s role is to talk, share ideas, brainstorm, and ultimately learn how to self-coach.

Typically coaching sessions are held weekly or bi-weekly and are conducted by telephone or in person on a regular basis. Generally the coaching relationship lasts from three to twelve months with an optimal duration of six months. Additionally the coach offers assessments surveys to accelerate client development and bring objectivity to the coaching. In the business setting, the coaching contract is based on business quarter.

We also offer group and couple coaching. (Ask about our discounted packages.)

Risk Free Offer

If within the first 30 days of our coaching relationship, you feel the process is unlikely to make a difference in your life or in your business, we will refund you the month’s fee.

What others say

When I started seeing Alyse, my original purpose and goal was to clarify my own goals and true feelings regarding my career and personal direction in life

The structure within which she works has proven to be a strong tool to help me gain an understanding of myself in a way others have not been able to. What compels my feelings on the issue the most is the fact that her technique is very simple and down to earth – the nuts and bolts of life in a way. It is what I have been searching for in my past therapies, and I am happy to report that I finally feel I am making tremendous progress. There is more to go and I now have a basic understanding and groundwork to improve my life and professional career.

I feel I have made more progress in the last nine months with Alyse than in all the years past with other helping professionals.

Do you have productive employees who understand your company vision?
Are all aspects of your business aligned – values, purpose, processes, people and leadership?
Are members of the team on the same page?
Are you running your life or is your life running you?

If you answered no to any of these questions, then the strategic mapping process can help you get results. The process can be done with individuals or with a group.

If you were going on a long trip, would you leave home without a map? Most people answer no, if you want to reach your destination in the most expedient manner. Yet, how many people go through life winging it, without any sort of map for their personal or business dreams.

Strategic Mapping helps you deal with what is important in terms of business, life or a personal issue you would like to resolve. You will be coached through the process of creating your map by:

  • Taking a deeper look at who you are – examining your assumptions and beliefs, recognizing your strengths, identifying your values and ensuring that your vision is really worth pursuing,
  • Identifying your purpose and getting results
  • Establishing concrete and measurable steps to attain your goals.

Here is what clients have said:

“I feel more confident about the future than I did before the life planning workshops. I feel that with the steps and tools I have leaned, I can better achieve the future that I want. I would never have even thought to write a purpose statement. Now that I have, I refer to it often.”

“The program made me see why I was doing certain things in my life. It made me conscious of my decisions rather than just “going through the motions.” It has enabled me to envision a type of future that I want.”

“We all want to thank you for your exceptional expertise and hard work in helping the NAC in our group development process. The meeting was a great success.”


How do you know what really needs to be addressed unless you bring some comprehensive feedback to the equation. Most people are good decisions makers. They are often making decisions on the wrong information.

How do you get the right information?
Get feedback – through well designed assessments!


Assessments are a great tool to:

  • Understand your underlying behaviors and motivations . Then you can objectively identify what areas need to be addressed, in order to increase personal satisfaction and happiness.
  • Establish more objective data so you can get perspective on multiple life issues.
  • Give you a baseline to clarify differences between what you think about yourself and how you act.

Assessments include:

REISS Profile of Motivational Sensibilities

The degree to which a desire is important can predict the degree to which you will act on that desire. Desires include Power, Independence, Curiosity, Acceptance, Order, Saving, Honor, Idealism, Social contact, Family, Status, Competition, Romance, Eating, Physical Activity, and Tranquility.

  • Provide clarity so individuals and organizations target the real issues, and solutions are based on the identified areas that need modification.
  • Give you verifiable data instead of anecdotal data
  • Improve employee commitment, engagement, and manager expertise
  • See what you really need to do to engage your employees in providing an extraordinary experience for your customers.
  • Measure customer satisfaction and find out ways to improve.
