"I inspired myself, by answering your questions. I am busy at work now, And happy to be so; Thankful & Grateful ❤️ You have already made a difference in my life,
Thank you." - Robert D.
The more stress and the less time you have, the more appropriate our coaching method is for you.
What are the dangers and lost opportunities of not having optimal mental and physical health on your work performance and life quality?
How much is going through the grind using a scattershot approach costing you from your potential exponential success?
How many potentially great opportunities are you passing up because of not having enough time in a day or because you are too tired after work?
Tons of people are bouncing around from course to course and program to program—desperately trying to find something that will make a difference for them (I used to be one of them too). Without a foundational strategy for sustained IMPLEMENTATION and support in place, investing in expanding your skills could very well be a waste of time and $$$$.
You want to be equipped for life’s challenges, feel confident and in control.
Why waste time reinventing the wheel when you can tap into tried and true methods and have a person that supports you in what you want to achieve?
What if you could have it all and then a bit more without burning out in the proccess?
Learn how to adapt & thrive under all circumstances

“Before working with Alex I was feeling stuck in frustration, feeling helpless for my career because of the whole Covid19 crisis, after having 3 video coaching sessions with Alex and with the daily support I received from him through text, I feel renewed, with a clear understanding of what I want to achieve, and I've cut my chronic procrastination to its root."

Your Success Story awaits to be written...
All you need to do is:
Most people spent a lot of time, money or both in reading blog posts or books, watching videos, taking courses and working with consultants, because they want to learn and try new things for growing their business, up-skill for their professional development, or improve their wellbeing (physical or mental).
In summary, because they want achieve greater results in whatever they pursue.
But how much of that knowledge do you actually implement?
At Actualizing Change we have a personalized science-based coaching approach that helps you put more things into action so you can level up your productivity, make every ounce of your time and money invested worth it and sleep at night with ease knowing you are doing your best every day.
“I had been included in executive coaching engagements in two previous companies I was working at, and got some value out of it so I already believed that coaching is something helpful for me but I was feeling the need to have a coach that I can completely open up to, that I can say anything to without being judged and know that his sole interest lies with me because having a coach paid by my employer made me feel that I can't trust that the coach doesn't have mixed interests.
Being effeminate by nature and working in Saudí Arabia has been difficult for me in many ways. Although I am respected for my business knowledge and experience, I have been feeling the office environment stressful because my sexuality is shamed upon a lot in this country.
The constant need to monitor my moves so I don’t look “gay” has been stressful for me and in turn lowering my overall work performance and satisfaction. I was feeling as if I am back in high school wondering when all this will end.
Working with Alex helped me reclaim my courage and show up in the workplace in an authentic way, letting go of caring about negative unhelpful criticism about my sexuality so I was able to leave all of that emotional baggage behind when being at work, increase my productivity and drive business revenues. I was able to get promoted into a territory business development manager position within 5 months."

Some of our clients choose to work with us under an NDA agreement so you can feel free to share with us anything that is on your mind with ease.
My mind tends to be rushing at a thousand miles per hour and although it has been an asset sometimes, it is also a two-edged knife for me. I’ve been looking for a good leadership coach to act as a sounding board and help me see my blind spots.
I was referred to Alex through a colleague as a great resource for coming up with better solutions and higher quality decisions because of his unique perspective and evidence-based coaching methodology.
When I first meet him I was struck and skeptical due to his young age as in my mind the right coach for me should be someone that is one-two steps ahead of me in the same role and industry so he can understand me and have some extra guidance having been where I want to go.
Alex proved me wrong. I hope he stays the same as he gets older because the fresh perspective and multidisciplinary approach he brings to the table is irreplaceable. An added benefit that I received after working with him that was beyond my expectations is that I now have a clear leadership style and vision, which in turn has helped me and my direct reports be more engaged at work.

See for yourself why we have such great testimonials from clients just like you.
My collaboration with Alex was initiated for time management coaching in my role as an Operations Manager at Water Access Rwanda but it has been so much more than that.
In the beginning, I was a bit worried about online coaching because I wasn't familiar with it. An unstable network at my end and a busy schedule were additional considerations.
Alex has shown me how with mutual understanding, patience, the ability to pivot fast and if/then strategies, everything is possible. Working with him, I've realized a change in my habits and approaches about time management and planning.
He is the most collaborative person, pays great attention to what you say and remembers details as if he has taken thorough notes. He sees you as the whole person instead of just the challenge at hand.
I have enjoyed and still like to work with Alex. I strongly recommend him for his professionalism, integrity and honesty.

Is your coaching for me?
If you are in a decision making position or decision making is a task you perform frequently at work
If you believe optimizing your mental and physical wellness is essential because it can directly influence the level of your performance in work and life and thus the bottom line, your career and your happiness in life
If your Performance Indicators look good but you know that you and or your employees/direct reports can do even better
If you've reached significant milestones in your career and you are eager for the next thing but for some reason you seem like you can't move the needle and you feel stuck and frustrated
If you want to have more time and mental capacity to enjoy the things & people you
If you are the kind of person that in fair weather conditions you seem to be able to keep a great routine, exercise, eat well, practice self care and have great interpersonal relationships but when a storm comes in your life all or some of these fall of the wagon and you just work, work, work
If you want to have a sounding board, a place where you can be 100% honest and vulnerable as to what you are going through in your role. A place were you feel safe to share anything and not fear to be judged about your aspirations, thoughts, struggles, conflicts, needs, wants, and actions. A person who is committed to your growth and well-being as a professional. A relationship that it's sole purpose is your development and support.
And last but most importantly, if you want to create more impact through your work
Then our coaching is definitely for you.
