Client Testimonials

“One of my biggest challenges as a leader is trust and confidence in myself. Working with Aurora has been more than just getting little tips and tricks to manage this–I’ve worked with her to build systems and processes that make handling management challenges easier and we’ve deeply explored what emotions are behind my leadership-related anxieties. This has enabled me to better identify and observe my internal reactions to situations, use that data to make  more objective decisions, and match my actions to my values, which she helped me identify. Working with her has made me much more comfortable as a leader, which in turn has made me a better leader.”

Caroline, Department Head in a Global Corporation

“I honestly believe I would not be the confident, inclusive, and thoughtful leader I am today without the coaching support I have received from Aurora. She truly meets you where you are, offering emotionally intelligent insights while holding you accountable to the improvements you seek. I am always eager for our sessions as I know I will walk away a better manager, leader and person!”
