Alyson Garrido: Throughout my career, I have always gravitated toward helping others.
Coaching is a natural extension of my drive to act as a resource for people. This prompted me to enroll in the International Coach Academy (ICA) for my Professional Coach Certification. I chose ICA due to their rigorous requirements, including creating my own coaching model and power tool. Their cutting-edge curriculum also aligns with the requirements of the International Coach Federation, which accredits coaches to ensure consistency and development.
I found that I thrived during my time in the Human Resources field. I gravitated toward the dreaded “employee relations” cases. The satisfaction of helping someone successfully deliver a difficult message or craft a thoughtful performance review was exceptionally satisfying. I envied the Executive Coach who I worked with in planning and facilitating retreats for staff development. It was during this time that I started to contemplate becoming a coach myself.
My early career was spent working in Customer Service and Quality Assurance. I quickly began managing a team and found my passion for the performance review process and staff development infrastructure. I thoroughly enjoyed helping my teams capitalize on their strengths and grow professionally. It was also at this stage of my career where I saw the importance of honing one’s value system and core beliefs.
My journey has led me here – to my own practice as a Career and Life Coach. I can’t wait to learn a little more about you and how we can work together to help you achieve your goals!
