I’ve now gotten a chance to participate in the strengths workshop with Ariela multiple times, and each time, I learn something new. She’s an excellent facilitator – the three hours fly by, and she brings such good, positive energy in with constructive opportunities for learning and growth. Our board, our students, our staff, and our overall culture are all benefitting from her coaching and wisdom!

Ariela is an AMAZING coach!!! She helped me identify my strengths and how they apply in a variety of settings. I have learned more about myself and what I need in a professional setting. Ariela is also so inspiring and supportive. She’s invested in learning about you and helping you succeed in whatever field you choose. Words cannot describe how much our coaching sessions have helped me as a graduate student and as an individual. Ariela is a light that shines bright to help guide you on your journey.

We’ve worked with Ariela since early 2019. She’s provided individual CliftonStrengths (StrengthsFinder) coaching and training for our whole company, including facilitating our company retreats for the last three years. She’s helped us better understand ourselves and improve team dynamics. Ariela takes the time to understand our company’s goals and puts a personalized, custom touch on each team activity. We’ve truly enjoyed working with Ariela, in person and online, and highly recommend her services!

Strengths coaching with Ariela refocused my attention on my deep-seeded motivations and drivers, allowing me to connect with my internal, rather than external, markers of success. The process came at a crucial time for me as I was able to draw on Ariela’s assessment when having an important but hard conversation with myself about what path I wanted to follow after graduating and why. I am forever grateful for the role she played in helping me decide on the right career path for me.

Ariela provided the CliftonStrengths training to our Emory Rollins COVID-19 Epidemiology Fellows over the past 2 years. This in-depth and personalized training helped them learn about their unique Strengths and how to apply them in the current public health crisis. I received rave reviews from the participants after the training. We also utilized a similar training with Rollins MPH students in a leadership development program. Even though previously Ariela had provided these trainings in person, she was effective in translating them to the virtual format for a rewarding experience. Ariela was wonderful to work with- responsive and flexible. I would highly recommend her services!

I have truly enjoyed working with Ariela. She is a versatile and gifted coach. She was able to tailor sessions to meet the unique needs of our entire organization. The one-on-one coaching she provided for senior leaders yielded improved working relationships. She has helped engage staff, at all levels, around the topic of Strengths and how to leverage them for professional and personal growth.

Vianca McCluskey County Health Department Administrator, Osceola County

Ariela was amazing to work with! Her love for helping others was shown during the actual program where we brought her to facilitate CliftonStrengths to Emory alumni. Our attendees raved about her energy, passion and empowerment to really help them not just take in all she shared with us but to also feel more confident to leave walking into our lives owning our strengths. I definitely plan on bringing her back in the future!

Yabi Demissie Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement, Emory University

Our professional team at Jewish Federation loved working with Ariela! Participants found her to be relatable and fun, and her workshops were relevant and engaging. The artful way Ariela guided us through reflecting upon our individual and collective Strengths left us feeling empowered and excited to collaborate as a team. We can’t wait to dive into this content even further, knowing that greater self-awareness will improve our work us as individuals and as an organization.

Rabbi Elana Perry Director, Jewish Education Collaborative, Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta

Ariela was wonderful! She kept the entire group engaged throughout and provided a framework to help us understand the ins and outs of putting our volunteer energy to the best use.
