- Success Stories
The best part for me in working with Ana Rosa is her approach to the work and her genuine interest in making sure individuals feel heard and listened to. She provides a safe space for collaboration and learning. She is an absolute subject matter expert in her teachings and she’s done the work herself, which in my opinion is what makes a coach a GREAT coach. Some things that helped me when working with her were:
- She is relatable; shares very inspiring stories that helps a person feel connected to the situation and hopeful
- She has copious amounts of compassion and empathy which makes for a great leader
- She is knowledgeable and clearly knows (from experience and from her coaching work) what motivates and inspires her clients to do the work for themselves.
I initially became connected to Ana Rosa via a 6 week course on Shame and Vulnerability that she taught at the Women’s Center. It was through that first encounter that allowed me to experience the greatness of who she is and what she gives to others.
Since then, Ana Rosa has coached both me and my teenage daughter, individually. There are many attributes that stand out to me about Ana Rosa. She has a true passion and love for coaching others that you can feel from the moment you meet her. She has a tremendous depth of experience as a coach. Ana Rosa is a skilled listener. Let me say that again, because in finding the right coach, authentic and genuine listening cannot be taken for granted. She listens! It is through her deep listening that she is able to ask thought provoking questions that shift one’s perspective and ultimately behavior change.
Ana Rosa is very intuitive. There have been many times that, on the surface, presenting issues I brought to the table were not the actual issue yet manifestations of deeper social conditioning and prior lived experiences. In other words, Ana Rosa is able to accurately name the real issue. Ana Rosa offers tailored and practical approaches that are long lasting, leads to personal growth and are regenerative. In working with Ana Rosa, I’ve always been stricken by the vast knowledge wealth that she is able to pull from, inclusive of comprehensive coaching methodologies, philosophies and practices. She is one who “puts her oxygen mask on first” before giving to others in continuously honing her craft and skills.
I am tremendously grateful for the personal change I’ve experienced in working with Ana Rosa.
Working with Ana-Rosa has been rewarding for me as a division leader and for the groups I lead, to include Assistant Principals and Deans. These groups enjoyed working with Ana-Rosa because she is intentional and knowledgeable about the work we undergo every day. Ana-Rosa has taught us that as leaders, we are courageous. She has helped us tap into our talents so we can better serve our students. Ana-Rosa emphasized how necessary it is to become reflective, define our core beliefs, and explore our vulnerability as school leaders. We continue to reflect on Ana-Rosa’s workshop and we hope to continue this journey with her soon!
