 What People Say

​There are some people who come into your life and you know instantaneously that your paths were meant to cross. Asila Calhoun is one of those individuals for me. Last September, I moved to the DC area from Los Angeles to start an exciting new job. I had been with my previous employer for 12 years, so this was a major move for me, both personally and professionally. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Asila during this period of significant change and transition. Asila and I connected right away. Her friendly demeanor immediately put me at ease and created a safe space for candid dialogue. My coaching with Asila helped me identify areas where I would subconsciously minimize my work and accomplishments. She helped me reclaim my power and my voice. Asila gave me the support and guidance that I needed to effectively navigate the transition to a new city and job. THANK YOU ASILA! Thank you for the guidance and support. Thank you for helping me find my confidence and my voice.
