"Mentor, coach, sounding board, thought partner, supporter - these are the words that come to mind when I think about working with Amy Robinson during the Aspire Higher Women’s Leadership Development Program.  Each session with Amy was an opportunity to learn and develop into the type of leader that I aspired to be.  Amy customizes her leadership coaching to fit the needs of each individual by using different feedback techniques.  Amy helped me process my day-to-day leadership experiences.  Through that critical self-reflection, I am able to apply the lessons I’ve learned to new leadership opportunities.  Amy is outstanding, and I highly recommend working with her through the Aspire Higher Women’s Leadership Development Program or through individual coaching. "


"Amy's Aspire Higher Leadership Development program gave me the push I needed to go to the next level. Her coaching style is thought provoking and straight forward. One of my favorite talks that she gave at a conference is "Get Your Ask Up". Thanks Amy for your dedication to meeting people where they are and providing a framework to move to the next level."


"I had the privilege of working with Amy as a member of her Aspire Higher Women’s Leadership Program, and can’t say enough good things about her approach. Her 6-month program, part-group-coaching and part-individualized-focus, allows for a unique opportunity to not only work on personal vision and goals but also learn from other female leaders who have their own stories, successes, and challenges to share.

The Aspire Higher program is a wonderful investment in growing yourself both personally and professionally. Like most things in life worth doing, the program requires that participants stretch outside of their comfort zone; it takes a great deal of self-awareness, openness to feedback, and willingness to actively participate. Amy has a great ability to ask the hard questions and push for growth, all while maintaining a climate of positivity and genuine care."


"Aspire Higher! is an intense, stimulating and excellent learning experience in leadership development geared specifically towards women. While the program focuses on developing leadership skills within the workplace, it also gives you powerful tools to use in your personal relationships as well.

I was amazed at how much you can learn in such a short period of time. The wealth of material and topics covered would at first seem overwhelming, but Amy’s program outline is planned so that it is all easily absorbed in the perfect timeline.

Amy exhibits a genuine interest in each participant while building a sense of camaraderie among the group. She is an enthusiastic and approachable coach and presents the material in a way that is made applicable to each individual. Amy’s passion for training is unsurpassed.

This experience has been the highlight of my career and has enabled me to expand my scope as an administrative professional. I highly endorse Amy Robinson and recommend her Aspire Higher! Women’s Leadership Development Program."


"In Aspire Higher a unique program for high performing women, Amy imparts skills that can immediately be put into play, resilience in addressing challenges, and a deepening of one's emotional intelligence. Amy has the innate ability to cut to the core of an area for growth, and share insightful feedback and effective action plans in a frank and highly supportive manner. Best career (and life) investment I've ever made."


“I recently completed Aspire Higher and would highly recommend the program to any woman wanting to take her career to the next level. I recently changed careers, and I couldn’t have taken the program at a better time. I learned a lot about myself, how I work with others, and my leadership style. While the program is great as a whole, I really started seeing progress during the portion of the program where we have weekly 1-to-1 phone calls with Amy.  Amy has a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and having the opportunity to talk and ask her questions on a weekly basis was invaluable. Amy is very gifted at what she does, and she works with each participant on an individual basis to help her grow and excel. The information I learned over the last six months will stay with and help me throughout my career.”


"I completed two of Amy's 4-month Women's Leadership Coaching courses, Aspire Higher. Under Amy's guidance, I learned a lot about my personality and leadership style, and she helped me to put specific goals and plans in place for improvement.

Amy is truly inspirational. She will broaden your perspectives and stretch you beyond your comfort zone. She strives for excellence and authenticity in her own life and that of her client. If you want to up your game in your career or personal life, then I recommend you contact Amy."

"Women Leaders plan their lives, are strongly motivated, and move along a forward path. They know what they want, they get things done, they're goal-oriented, and they're willing to take healthy, calculated risks to get where they want to be. Leaders know how to develop their personal power and abilities to be more effective. They have a clear vision, identified purpose, confidence, and while in the process of mastering core competencies that build on their strengths around their most cherished goals, they are also mastering how to compassionately apply self-care routinely in their lives."
