Your attention to detail, ability to guide the team in reflection and have us dare to dream was amazing and well received.

I’ve seen dramatic changes in our team. It’s been a pleasure to go to the meetings. I feel like we’ve moved forward and made decisions and holding each other accountable now, too. Manager, Planning and Controls

Alida is an amazingly skilled “shadow consultant” to me. Two things stand out about her talents: first, her skillful, crisp questions help me unpack a sticky situation in 10 minutes’ time. And the scores of models and activities she can immediately draw on bring solid theory and fresh ideas when I am creating new workshops and off-sites. She is one of the most talented coaches and consultants I know. Cheryl Lower

Principal, Fulcra

Alida created a safe and productive environment for me to learn, grow and plan. She provided a useful structure to find the strengths that I should leverage and areas for improvement. She was encouraging and respectful of my thoughts and ideas. She is a clear and articulate presenter. And a strong facilitator. Samantha Rabinowicz

Alida was an incredible resource for us as we developed a brand-new coaching protocol, trained 25 instructional coaches, then supported the coaches in their growth throughout the first year of our project.  She brought a wealth of coaching experience and know-how to our project, but she always made sure that her advice and support was relevant to our specific context and needs. She is a great listener, and she always helped us to find solutions that would work for our project. Claire Gogolen

Alida is one of the most impressive consultants I’ve worked with…She is also personally someone I look to for coaching and support. I have grown so much by listening to her, observing her and taking action with her direction in mind. Angela Sebaly
