GO ABOVE
SESSION

90 Minutes


LET’S USE THE OCEAN AS A
METAPHOR FOR LIFE

Sometimes, when you’re on the surface, it’s a wild place. The tides are moving in and out. The waves are churning and crashing on the shore. There are birds flying about and squawking. There’s weather – clouds, wind, the occasional squall. There are boats and surfers and children swimming.

There’s a lot of motion, a lot of stimuli, and a lot going on – and it’s hard to attend to all of it at once. Sometimes, we lose focus and a wave sneaks up on us and tosses us for a ringer.

The surface of the ocean, with all its activities and demands on your attention, is daily life. To go beyond what currently exists in our life, we first have to learn to see differently.

We need to get a different perspective on what’s going on, to soar high and see the big picture. When we zoom out, we see what is – we see where the ocean gets deeper, where the rocks and reefs are, where the surfers are congregating, what the wave patterns are. We also see what’s coming – we notice the weather on the horizon, we see land in the distance.

And we get to consider – “Given what’s on deck and what’s coming, how do I want to meet, respond, and shape my circumstances?”

Locating yourself in the world and asking the question, “What do I want?” helps you decide, navigate, choose and act in context, not absent of it.

A GO ABOVE SESSION IS FOR YOU WHEN YOU’RE AT A CROSSROADS.

A Go Above Session is for you if:

You recognize that, while busy, your overall life is comparably pretty good – there’s nothing disastrously off keel, yet you’ve got questions and can’t shake the feeling that you want something more or different in a particular area of your life.

You aren’t quite sure what this looks like; it’s not really a “problem” to solve. It’s more of a place that you want to sail to that you’re not sure you’ve ever been to before, so you can’t Google how to get there.

And though you are driven and accomplished, with a history of “figuring it out,” often on your own, there are so many competing voices in your head right now that you aren’t sure who to listen to.

You sense that you need a sounding board to help you hear your own voice and to attune to your own inner compass. You’re looking for a vision and set of values to guide how you make decisions moving forward, and a thought-partner to help you articulate yourself.

And that’s what you’ll get out of a Go Above Session.

HERE’S HOW WE’LL WORK TOGETHER

You’ll pick an area of your life to focus on – could be your career, your leadership, your romantic partnership, your sense of community or something else.

I’ll act as a guide by your side, helping you zoom out on current and past experiences in this area of your life so that you can cull insights from where you’ve been. Then we’ll have a look at your horizon together – What’s coming up in this area of your life? What do you want to be true?

I’ll support you to articulate a vision and set of values for the future that are grounded in both your voice and your context.

You’ll leave lit and energized because you’ll be more deeply connected to yourself, your priorities, and the world.

So much of the leader I am today - both professionally and personally - has developed through my relationship with Alice, with her deep empathy, powerful listening skills and just real belief in who I am. At one of the real low points in my professional career, Alice coached me to find my personal power, helping me see the agency I had in both creating the situation and in finding a new path forward that felt aligned to my personal values. Through my work with Alice, I've confronted some hard truths about how I show up in the world and feel ever more resolved in my purpose moving forward.

When I decided to get a coach I was not sure what to expect. I was looking to find clarity and purpose and wanted to find my “way” …that’s when I came across Alice’s from Chaos to Clarity coaching program. Her program goes beyond stepping into the “role” of the lifetime and developing executive presence- it helped me find clarity around my values, beliefs, and passions. With Alice, I was able to identify some of the common stories I have allowed to hold me back professionally and personally and she helped me structure tools that have helped me move past the stories and live in a way that is more aligned with my values and beliefs. One thing I really appreciated about Alice is that she never let me off the hook – she didn’t let me take the easy way out but instead pushed me to think about things in new ways. I would highly recommend working with Alice if you are ready to figure out what you really want out of life and are not afraid of looking at yourself and your actions though with a critical yet loving eye.

Working with Alice took me from a place of overwhelm and confusion, to a place of clarity and excitement for what's to come in my career. Alice not only helped me to define my career values, goals, and dreams, but also helped me to identify blocks within myself that have prevented me from achieving all that I have wanted in the past. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has ambition and drive, but is lost on how to best channel it.

Working with Alice is like constructing a fabulous story – she listens carefully and helps weave together the stories I am telling myself with bits of wisdom and love-based truth to help me construct a more workable narrative.  Alice sits with me in beautiful and uncomfortable realities, helps me imagine possibilities I can’t yet see, and pushes me to action so I can clearly direct my intentions and energy.  She is a brilliant and creative guide who is able to connect and break apart theoretical concepts and then translate them so they are easily understood and immediately applicable.  I seek Alice’s counsel when I want to feel seen, heard, validated, and pushed – she shows up consistently and reliably as a partner, colleague, and friend.  Knowing and working with Alice is one of my greatest joys – she enriches my life, “gets” me, and asks fabulously intuitive questions to help me uncomplicate my life and live more purposefully and passionately.
