Allison is a seasoned professional that presents herself and our company very well. I have had the pleasure of benefiting from her consulting services in which she facilitated both individual and team development and growth.. Allison has a strong and respected presence. She is extremely approachable and eager to help enhance performance. Allison is an “out of the box” thinker bringing fresh ideas and a creative approach to each unique engagement. I also had the pleasure of having her as an executive coach and drew tremendous energy from her ability to help me realize my potential and goals and focus on steps to help me be successful. Allison builds rapport well with all levels of people and is well liked.
Allison has excellent change management experience, where the process steps necessary for success are her #1 focus. She has the business acumen, drive and breadth of knowledge needed to bring innovative ideas to fruition.
She is a wonderful asset to any organization!
Allison was a wonderful colleague and mentor to me while I was at Beeline. She has a keen sense of recognizing areas of opportunities in many areas of an enterprise structure. Whether it be succession planning, organizational structures, executive coaching, etc. she truly is a master of her trade. I was fortunate enought to have her as an executive coach and she was able help me identify my strength skill sets and as well as my drivers. She did in a way where it was self realizing as opposed to being told. I would recommend her to any organization that needs an expert that is not content with the "old guard" approach to doing things and is always striving to find new and innovative ways to locate efficiencies.
I highly recommend Allison and am so honored to be able to do so. In my time at Accenture, Allison was a strong, effective and fair manager. She was always concerned around managing workloads within her team and tried to affect change where possible. Furthermore, Allison cared about providing superior customer service to our line managers, therefore, her team had a role model from which to learn from. Allison was able to handle conflict effectively and cautiously which allowed her to maintain respect among her team and peers.
When it comes to consulting, Allison “gets it.” She understands the industry, the job market, and what firms are looking for. In addition, she never hesitates to leverage her previous corporate experiences and provide solid and personal career advice. She is very flexible in her approach. After working with Allison, I have built a long lasting relationship.
Alli Polin is one of the most interesting coaches I know. I've been following her blog for a while now. The insights that she shares there are always compelling and useful to me. When I reached out to her to have a conversation (I interviewed her for the SmallBusinessTalent.com podcast), I was impressed by her honesty and her keen intellect. Alli is someone that any small business owner or leader should get to know.
Allison was a recruiter, coach, leader, manager and mentor to me. I found her input and direction to be among the most valuable I have ever experienced and would consider her to be an important resource in the future as well. Her ability to assess situations, recommend creative solutions and manage a wide spectrum of personalities is tremendous. Her evaluations are exactly on target!
Having Allison as a business or personal resource is an asset to any executive or organization.
Allison is such a gem of a person. She has incredibly high integrity, with wisdom well beyond her years. As a board member, she is keenly tuned into what the members want - and more importantly - how to get it for them! A talented professional and wonderful human being - whom I will continue to recommend to clients and friends!
