The high performance coaching I received over the 12 sessions I was with Ruth, allowed me to assess what my focus and purpose was in my work, how I wanted to show up for my family and what I wanted to get out life. The program gave me routines and tools that helped me developed habits to help me be successful. A particular challenge I have is the initiation and organization of large work projects. Ruth showed me tools to help me manage and organize my projects and also helped me changed my mindset towards projects overall. The experience was tremendously helpful and I whole heartedly recommend the series.

Jeremy Davis, General Manager, Downstream Process Integration, Shell

I found the coaching to be one of those life defining investments in me.  It certainly was not cheap and I remember thinking to myself can it possibly be worth that sum?  However, having jumped in with both feet, I truly can say that the coaching has made me happier, more relaxed, more focussed and certainly 8 to 10 times more effective... it really has and it could for you as well, so stop hesitating and jump on in too!

I’ve spent the past 8 months being coached by Ruth and I can honestly say it has changed my life.  Following a high performance model, Ruth has guided me through my development as an individual and as a professional.  If asked, I would whole-heartedly recommend Ruth to anyone seeking to change and improve. Thank you Ruth for enriching my life.  Ruth is a superb coach.  Give it a go, you'll be blow away by the results!

Dean King, Technology Entrepreneur

The advice Ruth has given me in Wellbeing Warrior Monthly allowed me to reassess what it was that I was doing and to declutter my life from so many things that were either not necessary, or simply being done to prop up a badly planned approach to many other things I had been attempting to manage.  Ruth had chosen the session well. The next 40 minutes were the best 40 minutes I spent this year.  I recognised myself in the description Ruth gave of her own experiences.  I can’t thank Ruth enough of such timely and well targeted advice.  Give it a go and see for yourselves.

Melanie, Management Consultant

It's hard to pinpoint one specific area in my life or specific life event as the single catalyst, but I knew I needed to make a change.  My health, energy, work, being a mother and a partner seemed all to be requiring so much effort and I didn't feel I was giving the best of me on any front.  No matter if you're reticent or really eager, high performance coaching is a start in an exciting and clear pathway.  I highly recommend it.

George J. Chanos, Former Attorney General of Nevada

As a guest at the “Share the Change” talks with Les Brown, I saw a number of rising stars in the speaking field.  One that I thoroughly enjoyed, was Ruth Mary Allan.  She lit up the room with her message of optimism, hope and action.  Ruth not only knows that - she practices it, by sharing her powerful message with others.
