Emily Golden, MCC

Recognized as an expert in emotional intelligence in the workplace, Emily Golden incorporates her years of corporate human resources experience into her high-performance coaching practice.

She is familiar with the challenges executives face, including time management, overwork, and the potential for burnout. Her clients emerge re-energized, equipped with the tools that help them create a balanced and meaningful life inside and outside of work.

No stranger to the delicate balance of work-life juggling, Emily was a top performer when a troubling diagnosis struck her family. Her daughter was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome in 2010. Despite the emotional toll, Emily’s perfectionism kicked in and she was determined to be the best employee, mother, and partner for her husband.

The trouble was, at home, she was thinking about work. At work, she was thinking about what she needed to do for her kids at home. When her son was also diagnosed with the same syndrome, Emily shifted her focus to finding a workable balance that honored her capacity in her work and personal life.

She realized that her talents for seeing both the blind spots and the skills in others in her corporate position translated seamlessly into coaching high performers looking to advance professionally while avoiding the trap of burnout or golden handcuffs.

Combining her leadership and work in human resources for over 17 years, 3,000+ hours of hands-on coaching, and 500+ hours of coach training, Emily has created a powerful coaching method not typically offered in corporate America.

As a master certified coach, Emily combines the best of diagnostic methods including the EQi 2.0 with her step-by-step guidance and powerful support, so you can make fulfilling career choices to support the life you deserve.

If you’re ready to show up more powerfully in every aspect of your life, to get on and stay on the path of your choosing, then it’s time to work with Emily.

Allyson Hernandez
Allyson Hernandez, ACC

Allyson knows that once her clients activate their true selves – that’s when the magic happens. Allyson is passionate about encouraging and empowering her clients to drive results by tapping into the qualities that make them unique, revealing blind spots, and developing their growth edges.
While she’s spent 20 years working in Corporate HR, Allyson has also managed a dual career as a professional actress, singer, writer, and composer. She draws on my unique blend of experiences with enthusiasm, humor, directness, and a heavy dose of empathy encouraging clients to embrace their “extra” and get comfortable with not blending in but standing out.
How did she become a coach? After going through a Leadership Development program through Women Unlimited, Allyson was challenged to find a way to combine her passion with her work. She didn’t think Theater and HR could possibly go together until she embraced what was possible. Coaching corporate business folks on their speaking voices led her to enroll in a year-long coach training program with IPEC, one of the top ICF accredited programs in the US in 2015 and Allyson never looked back. She holds Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credentials through the ICF (International Coaching Federation) and truly loves her work.
