Do you secretly fantasize about trading in your ‘life of plenty’ for a hammock, a beach shack and a Dune Buggy? If so, lets talk.
You’re a big picture thinker with many ideas ahead of their time. You’re an idea generator. You are a creative and visionary leader. You’re a risk-taker. You make things happen. You stand out amongst the crowd. You shine brighter than most and always have. You’re a clear and articulate communicator and a masterful problem-solver. You have created your life by making your own rules or challenging other people’s rules. You can access ‘the zone’ and work uninterrupted for hours at a time with laser focus. Freedom is one of your highest values. You’re someone who, when a door seems closed to most people, it seems easy for you to open.
Does this sound familiar to you? Me too, and I know that for each of these gifts, there’s a dark side.
As a big picture thinker, do you sometimes get overwhelmed by your own vision? Do you sometimes resist the details and small steps required to get from Point A to Point B and then find yourself impatient with your progress? As someone with ideas ahead of their time, do you sometimes struggle to get other people’s buy-in and that can lead to self-doubt, uncertainty or second-guessing yourself? As someone who has always stood out, do you sometimes revert to pleasing others or compromising your values?
How do these sound? You make things happen and that can mean you have difficulty handing over control to someone else so you spend time and energy on tasks that ultimately drain you that someone else could be doing. You have so many ideas, you are always thinking and always ‘on’ that you find it difficult to truly relax and you live more in your head than in your heart. You’re a masterful problem-solver so sometimes you create problems just in order to solve them. You’re a risk-taker and a freedom-lover so you sometimes speak out against the status quo leaving you feeling unsupported and out on a limb. The flip side to being able to laser focus on your work is the struggle to give enough time and presence to your family.
I understand if these feel familiar because they’re true for me too. I’ll tell you two more things about your world: One, you have an incredible track record of success, and yet underneath that successful exterior you have a deep underlying fear that each success is a one-off that you’ll never be able to repeat and people will eventually discover that you are not as great as they thought you were. Deep down, you have a fear of disappointing people so you are constantly striving to achieve the next thing, and that’s exhausting. And two, as someone who has always stood out as a bright star you will at times revert to pleasing others and compromising your values, quieting your voice and ‘going along’ so as not to risk alienating yourself. Don’t be too successful, don’t be too big, don’t be too much or people won’t like you.
For over 25 years, I’ve been a successful manager, leader, consultant and coach. I was the Pan Regional Promotions Consultant for Asia Pacific at 20th Century Fox International. One of my proudest achievements was getting the attention of the two co-presidents of 20th Century Fox Worldwide and proposing that they create a new role, for me. Not only did they receive my proposal but they went ahead and created the role, amidst budget cuts and a hiring freeze. I created the job that I wanted, and it was the only job of its kind throughout all of Asia Pacific. In fact, I’ve been doing that most of my life. Every role I ever had was completely above my pay grade, and it happened because I created it. In a career in marketing and creativity, I generated ideas that people thought were crazy, but actually generated millions of dollars for the organizations I worked for.
These days, I sometimes sit down with people much like me. I use my 25 years of leadership skills, 25 years of creativity, 25 years of business development, 25 years of bold and audacious requests making the impossible possible and opening doors in order to now challenge and expand people’s thinking. If that sounds interesting, you and I should talk.
First Class Coach
“Before starting the coaching call with Ashley, she asked “what’s the priority focus for the call?” Little could she know that even this harmless little question was enough to inspire instant paralysis, deer-in-headlights-style.

With a gentle spirit but firm hand, Ashley guided me past my own obstacles to unearth the answers I needed. I have worked with coaches in the past and while…Ania Karzek
