I worked with Ali to come up with a plan of attack for an incredibly busy time of our business and wondering how we were going to get it all done without ruining our health and wellbeing at the same time. Her simple, structured, logical and common sense approach, gave me the confidence and clarity to move ahead confidently and to be able to lead my company through what seemed like an insurmountable period. Getting it out of my head made all the difference and into a plan I wanted to follow, was invaluable.
Ali provides the balance that the creative visionary needs. She takes your vision, even if it’s expressed through jumbled words and drawings and creates a well-organized project to execute. Ali is strategic and remains focused on the why, the what, and the how. Ali knows how to give your legacy project legs to stand on.
Alison’s Planning Day was an incredible opportunity to jumpstart problem-solving a challenging issue that our not for profit organization was experiencing. The structure made it so simple to identify the key aspects of the issue and create an extremely specific and targeted plan for the next six months. What I didn’t expect was how relevant the project structures and strategies that Alison presented would be for our entire organization, from the board to our program participants. The tools were so concise and simple and yet have the ability to yield a high-level result, it has really opened my eyes to utilizing tools from the project world in the not for profit disability sector. In the weeks, that have followed the Planning Day, our organization has been able to effectively implement the plan that was created and has already adopted the tools within our Board of Directors. We look forward to trialing these tools throughout our entire organization in the coming months and are very excited about being able to improve the consistency and quality of our programs.
Being someone who loves to take action can have its drawbacks. It is sometimes overwhelming because there is a long list of tasks accumulating. I’d often work on a task for the simple fact “it was at least doing something”. Since being introduced to the Now, Soon, Later method it has changed everything.
In just 5 minutes I can clearly map out the most important tasks that I need to do NOW that will get me closer to my goal, the tasks that are important, but in the scheme of things can be completed SOON and the tasks that are important, but can be completed LATER down the track. This simple method has provided a clear path to getting things done in a fast time.
Lasso those thoughts into a do-able plan
To be honest, Alison, I really felt that you listened to my dream and my wonderful, scattered thoughts of potentiality. The whole she-bang. Then, with (your superpowers of) guidance and clarity (let’s not forget, patience) you enabled me to lasso those thoughts and funnel them into a do-able project plan with your Now Soon Later concept. What a fantastic tool for organizing my ideas, defining roles, prioritizing tasks, and making the process of project fruition a joy again; it’s priceless! And as my accountability coach, your continued support and guidance will be most welcome. I can’t wait to check in with you on my progress. I am filled with joy as I see the foundation of my success being built from my own ideas with the help of you, a true visionary and my new personal project manager. I love what you do. I love what I do. And I love what we do together, what a team! Thanks for being a part of my team and my success. I am truly grateful.
If you have a legacy project and are feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of so many things to consider and do, Ali can help to synthesize through the clutter and to distill the essentials into an easy to follow Plan. Ali’s experience, calm manner, and no-fuss approach help people to break the project down and focus on the things that matter, a step at a time.
