I came into Compass Within looking for a way to right size my career. With the help of the modules and the calls with Dr. Ariela, I was able to not only redefine my goals for my career and my personal life, but establish concrete steps to achieve them. I highly recommend the program to anyone looking to chart the next steps in their journey.
Through Compass Within I was able to explore my inner strengths, some of which I didn’t realize I had. I especially appreciated gaining vocabulary to describe what I am capable and interested in doing and learning to decipher it from what I feel expected to do. So many times we are unaware of what help we need in moving to the next steps in our careers but Ariela’s wise words helped me home in on what matters most to me and how to represent myself in order to get it.
Compass Within is the perfect blend of insight, reflection, and Ariela’s masterful teaching skills for pulling it all together. There is so much wisdom packed in each short video, and the exercises and coaching sessions helped me apply everything to my life. Compass Within was just what I needed to reconnect with myself and finally chart the path I really want!
There are so many amazing aspects to Compass Within. It’s not just the inspiring videos that made me love with Compass Within. It’s also the coaching calls in which Ariela and I had deep conversations about each concept, and I learned how to apply them to my daily life. This program really makes you stop and think about yourself and understand who you are. I am 15 years old, and Compass Within has had a tremendous impact on my life.
Compass Within taught me what my strengths are and how to use them in the best way possible, as well as how to keep the best of me for myself. Ariela was great help, always knowing what questions to ask, helping me understand how to approach different situations, and guiding me in the right direction.
When I started Compass Within, I was burnt out and unsure of what I wanted to do next. With Ariela’s compassionate and intentional guidance in the program, I got to know myself better. Now I feel reset, confident, and equipped to pursue opportunities that are truly a good fit for me— not just something that I think I ‘should’ work! The videos, questions, and exercises in this program have rejuvenated me during a transitional time in my life, and I look forward to applying them as I continue in my career.
Ariela is a powerhouse people-developer. Prior to meeting Ariela I was in a stagnant place creatively. After time with Ariela, suddenly my strategic and creative spark was back and in full-throttle. Ariela’s coaching instinct is impeccable. She knows how to pique your curiosity, and bring you along on this journey to a better self. She’s brilliant, and has so much knowledge to share. She’s a teacher with the mind of a strategist and heart of an activist.
Ariela taught me a new language and a new way of looking at people. This improved my relationships because I was able to understand myself better and able to communicate with others more effectively.
Having Ariela as a strengths coach was one of the best things I did while moving through a career transition. Her thoughtful questions and insights helped me think more holistically about my strengths and then become clearer in what I need in order to feel energized and fulfilled through my work.
To Ariela, it’s clear that you are a person first with a lot of potential in your endeavors. Ariela puts in every effort to help you be your very best, both personally and professionally. Ariela’s dedication to creating a safe, inclusive space for those she works with is second to none. Since working with Ariela, I have become more introspective about my strengths and my future goals!
Ariela is so supportive and extremely easy to talk to no matter what issue you’re having. I finally feel proficient at job interviews! Before working with Ariela, I used to get so stressed out the night before a big job interview but now I don’t sweat it. I am confident using the tools and techniques she has given me that I can tackle any tough question a future employer asks me. Ariela’s ability to integrate my past work and life experiences to illustrate my character and work ethic to land jobs has been such a gift!
The Compass Within program could not be better timed! The program led me down a path of deep discovery both personally and professionally. Compass Within provides a series of tools for people who are interested in making a shift in their careers, using a holistic approach to navigating change and decision-making. As the developer of Compass Within and an experienced Clifton Strengths Coach, Dr. Freedman is well-equipped to guide professionals who are feeling “stuck” in the workplace on their change journey paths. I am grateful for Compass Within for helping me gain clarity! I can’t wait to embark on my next professional adventure!
