Life Crafting + PQ Testimonial
“I’m happy to report that I finished the UX design course and in just three weeks of job hunting (I only sent about 9 applications), I got a job offer at almost double my old salary! Needless to say, I am THRILLED. Of course, I am a little nervous, but still so excited!
Career Crafting Testimonial
So, I got an offer today for a “hidden job market” role, the first time I have come across such a thing. The title and the salary are more than I was expecting, I am pretty happy about it. Thanks for all your help with this process!
Group Facilitation Testimonial
As a component leader for an INGO, I had the great opportunity to work with Alison several times in the last year. She listens for and helps clients express their best selves. Her thoughtful approach to coaching and facilitation helped me take new ground in putting words to my deeper goals and purpose professionally and personally. Through our sessions, I gained confidence in pursuing meaningful contributions in the professional path ahead. I would highly recommend Alison’s compassionate and impactful coaching services.
Business Coaching Testimonial
Alison’s style of questioning brought to the surface things that were quietly troubling me without me noticing them. Absolutely superb experience. Thank you so much.
We all suffer from self-sabotage. We are our own worst critics and judge. Overthinking and stress lead to reduced potential and adverse health outcomes. The Positive Intelligence program leverages the latest in applied positive psychology and neuroscience research with coaching to support you in enjoying your full potential. Live in alignment, improve your experience, enjoy your present, savor your past, and build hope for your future.
I offer year-long coaching packages to individuals ready to align their life with their careers to build a life they love. Maybe this means finding a better work-life balance. Perhaps it means planning a career pivot or finally launching your business. I will leverage teaching and coaching to support and mentor you to find the life and career you want.
Learn to flourish. Live a life you love.

Working remotely and in person, I will facilitate feedback sessions, strategic planning conversations, employee retreats, and workshops for small to medium organizations or groups.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Positive Intelligence?
Most books & workshops result in learnings and mindset shifts that might change your understanding of why and how you behave, but the improvements are too often short-lived. PQ delivers sustained results by supporting you to build neural pathways that form lasting new habits.
That’s why we call this “mental fitness.”
Treat Root Cause, not Symptoms.
We know the foundational root-level enablers and disablers of optimal performance and well-being through research. PQ aims to rewire the brain at the root cause level. We see this process address three separate “core” mental muscles: the interceptor, the self-command and the Sage. Real habit change requires being able to flip the switch at the moment, not only when you are already in a Sage mindset, which is one reason meditation (or yoga practice) does not have the same impact.
Why Life & Career Crafting?
If you cannot see it, you cannot be it. Research shows that those with a vision and the experience of being connected to something bigger, a sense of purpose, experience more joy and satisfaction with life. Crafting a vision for your life supports you in living in alignment with your values and dreams. Learning to construct and honor limits gives you a sense of freedom and control over your life. Whether it’s Job Crafting, Career Crafting or Life crafting, I’ve got the tools to support you find your path.
Why Do I Coach?
Intrinsic change is the most satisfying and the most permeant. Coaching allows us to take what we know and make our plans and choices. And yet, sometimes we don’t know how we feel or what is truly important to us until we say it aloud. Your goals and outcomes are yours alone; unlike many people in your life, my goal is not to fix you. I think you are perfect just the way you are. As a Coach, my work is to support you to get from where you are today to where you want to be tomorrow. What I excel at is supporting you to make the changes you desire. As a coach, I am not afraid to make observations or ask questions that dig beneath the surface. I also excel at reading between the lines and noticing what makes you as an individual shine.
