Working with Alissa has impacted all areas of my life…not just my business. She has helped me view both my personal and business relationships in a totally new light. This new perspective has helped me to stop focusing on the areas of my life that I cannot control and focus on the things I c (...)
My team and I have been working with Alissa for about two and a half months, beginning in April of 2015. She has helped tremendously in breaking down communication barriers and in revitalizing my vision for my practice. We produced more, with less effort, in April and May of 2015 than in any o (...)
After our call yesterday I literally felt 10 pounds lighter. I planned on staying off the phone yesterday but instead I made some dials and set 5 new appointments. Best day on the phone I’ve had in a while. Thank you.
“I’ve been coaching with Malory for the last 4 months and it has been wonderful. Malory is great at challenging me to think critically to come up with solutions to issues that I have in my business and personal life as well. I credit the up-swing in my business in large due to our bi-weekly (...)
Working with Malory has by far been one of the most insightful, useful and productive investments I have made in my practice since starting with Northwestern in early 2013. I wish I could go back and work with her from the beginning. The insight she has provided has helped me across so many ar (...)
I was first introduced to Unleash Your Practice at 2015 annual meeting. I was very impressed by Alissa, and how she was able to shift my thinking in a positive way in just 5 min of 1 on 1 coaching. I was still really hesitant to move forward on it, but thanks to encouragement from my mentor, (...)
Beginning Q3 of 2015 I made a major shift in my practice by transforming it into a nationally focused model in order to broaden my spectrum with clients from coast to coast. Malory really helped me clear my mind and help identify the aspects of my practice that were on track with my vision an (...)
Alissa has helped me understand and leverage my strengths which allowed me to focus on increasing my productivity and be more effective. She also helped my associate and me understand each other’s work styles so that we can maximize our effectiveness as a team. Working with Alissa this year, I (...)
Alissa never stopped believing in my ability to meet my goals and encouraged me to keep going over the line towards the end! She’s been so impactful in helping me redirect my focus to bring more efficiency to my time and my practice. Within a few months of us working together, I was able to ac (...)
I was a fast-starting, top producing, young rep. The past year has been very challenging for me – from staff loss to inefficient processes to anxiousness. Alissa helped me tremendously with my attitude and my emotions. I am excited as ever for my business going forward. It’s going to be so muc (...)
Alissa helped me communicate authentically with clients and set profitable, healthy boundaries.
Don’t hesitate to book this trip. It’s the best investment I’ve made for myself and my business this year
There is nothing like it. We often times try to find solutions by look outside of ourselves or pointing a finger. This retreat allows you to recognize YOU are in control of your life- personally & professionally and internally & externally. Now I am a lot more intentional and deliberate with m (...)
This retreat helped me in establishing boundaries between business and personal matters. It has also empowered me to control these boundaries moving forward. This empowerment has helped me increase revenue, become very intentional with my time and energy, and most importantly experience contin (...)
Thank you so much for your help and thoughtful ideas over these last few months. I get such a feeling of relief after speaking with you and I really appreciate you always going the extra mile. You provide so much value. You're a wonderful example to all of us.
Alissa is a mind ninja. She will bring out the best in you. Every call I had with her [in the FR Group Coaching Program], I got better. I’m a better advisor because of Alissa Gauger.
Working with Unleash Your Practice, and Alissa specifically, has had such a real impact on my business and my life. I was encouraged by a mentor of mine to take the leap of faith and hire a coach when I had only been full time for one month. It would have been so easy to tell myself that I’m (...)
Every time I speak with Malory I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders. She is consistently able to walk me through any issue I am working on. One area we worked on is prospecting up. Malory has not only improved my language but has guided me to believe in my ability to plan in a better qualit (...)
Working with Malory and Unleash Your Practice has had a dramatic impact not only on my production, but my personal life as well. Prior to coaching, I found myself incredibly stressed & anxious; oftentimes tossing and turning in the middle of the night due to the volatility that the business br (...)
One of the greatest pieces of advice I received when I said I couldn’t afford coaching, is that I couldn’t afford not to pay for a coach. The skills I’ve learned with Malory have allowed me to pass important tests and get my practice accelerated to where I can advise and coach new reps in the (...)
Working with Malory over that past 6 months has been valuable to me both personally and professionally. Having had the experience of being a rep herself, and now having the experience of being a mentor to so many reps with various backgrounds, personalities, etc., she is able to offer a unique (...)
I have had an amazing experience with Alissa! She has helped me think big, run a more efficient practice (allowing me to spend time doing more of the things I enjoy in life), and overcome the mental hurdles holding us all back from accomplishing our ideal future. Money and time well spent work (...)
Alissa has been a tremendous resource to my practice. She has been involved in all facets—everything from the mental side (thinking bigger and belief system) to the procedural/operational side (language development, staff efficiencies, hiring , etc.). She is the first coach I’ve worked with (...)
Alissa has transformed my practice and my life. Her intention statement is what I read every. Single. Day. That keeps me motivated even on the days that staying in bed feels so much better than dialing. She transformed my brain into analyzing where my fear and hesitation comes from and tacklin (...)
I have had the pleasure of working with Alissa for the past several years. During that time, Alissa has helped me as much on a personal level as well as business. I have struggled for years with perceived confrontation and owning how the other person reacted to what I said. Working with Ali (...)
Simply put, being coached by Alissa has changed my life. She helps me be in tune with my authentic self and tap into my innate power and abilities. With her as my partner I am thinking bigger and more creatively. In addition to making me mentally stronger, her experiences in marketing and as a (...)
I appreciate working with Alissa because of her out of box thought, her focus on the whole person, the risk she takes on our calls, and ultimately that she walks along side of me through challenging leadership and life decisions.
I am privileged to be working with Malory. It has been an amazing experience and has helped me overcome certain obstacles that were holding me back early in my career at Northwestern Mutual. I had to figure out why I was struggling with things and Malory was not only able to help me understa (...)
If you are looking to being equipped with tools to help you with the mental side of this business, Alissa is your person! She does an excellent job of helping you identify your inner struggles but more importantly, giving you the tools on how to walk yourself off that mental ledge. She is extr (...)
You won't understand the true impact Alissa can have on you as a coach until you give her the opportunity to help you. I find my conversations with Alissa to be relevant to my practice and personal life, thought provoking, and strategic. Each conversation provides me with clear next steps to i (...)
I have been coached by Alissa since April of 2015 and she has helped tremendously in both my business and personal life. There were certain ways that I dealt with things and I knew I needed a new way to think about things; however, I couldn’t figure out how to accomplish that. During my indi (...)
Working with Alissa the past year and a half has shaped who I am personally and professionally. This job is not easy, and it takes a lot out of you sometimes. During the AFR Group Coaching Program Alissa taught me that even though having a job takes a lot out of you mentally, that it’s somethi (...)
Commenting about how much revenue is protected with good staff is trumped by how much your personal life improves when you have the correct support in place thanks to the AFR Group Coaching Program. Respectful communication, self-empowerment to see tasks through 100% on a person's own, and res (...)
You think you know yourself so well and all of these little things show up that would probably take years of coaching to figure out. It's like putting something in the microwave.
The Horsepower retreat is a life changing experience. You will get out of it whatever you were needing. It gives you tools that you can take back to your practice and your life. You may not find all your answers in these two days, but this is where the journey starts.
Working with Malory the past 6 months has been such an unbelievable experience. I’ve tried coaching programs in the past, but never one that made me a better person and gave me a higher level of confidence. In our fast-paced business, there’s no better way to understand yourself and regain yo (...)
Through my coaching conversations and discussions of my KOLBE scores, I have learned a lot about myself and how I react to certain situations personally and professionally.
I have been given tips and tools for motivating myself, which is a testament to the relationship that Malory and I have (...)
Alissa’s coaching has been hands down the best investment in myself and my business I’ve made in my 5 years at Northwestern Mutual. Through her coaching, I’ve been able to learn to control the self-defeating thoughts and worries that have held me back from hitting my big goals. In addition t (...)
In my time working with Alissa, she has truly helped me reframe some deep rooted beliefs that have allowed me to perform at a much higher and happier level. She doesn’t just deal with a topic or strategy of the day, she helps sort through my thinking in both positive and negative states of min (...)
A great coach should get you to think bigger, support you, and make sure that you follow through on commitments to get you to your goals. Alissa’s coaching encompasses all of these things. Her style of coaching has helped me both personally and with my business. A couple of examples of this (...)
I’ve been working with Alissa for about 6 months, and this has been the most transformative 6 months of my career. I have a greater understanding of how I am wired, and how to work in my own style. Alissa does not try to make you a cookie cutter mold of some ideal rep, she really helps you to (...)
Alissa has been such a huge help to me since we began working together a little over a year ago. She has revolutionized my business and my thought process towards everything I do on a daily basis. She brings to my attention something that will better my practice every time we talk and practica (...)
Malory has been able to take my energy from essentially 0, when we
started working together, to a level higher than I have ever had in this career. She has taken what I saw as my weaknesses and been able to turn them into strengths that help me continually go beyond the preconceived limitatio (...)
I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to participate in the group coaching session. Malory does a great job communicating concepts and helping coach through themes and challenges universal to financial reps. She engaged each of us on a personal level at various times to work through a (...)
Corinne started working with me as a RACE coach almost two years ago at NM Chicago. She coached me through Pacesetter 40, Second 60, top 10 Bronze Central Regional and helped lay a solid foundation for my practice – both with holding me accountable and challenging my mindset around obstacles. (...)
I highly recommend Malory and the Unleash Your Practice Team. Through her coaching and guidance, Malory has helped me transform my practice. If you want to increase productivity and growth while also limiting stress and strain, I highly recommend speaking with Malory.
This retreat will allow you to uncover blind-spots in yourself and your practice. This type of work is helpful for your whole team. Nonverbal communication can mean more than the words you communicate. This isn't only an investment in yourself but more so an investment in your practice and the (...)
Working in this manner, it's impossible to deny exactly what gets in your way or why you're getting in your own way.
I can’t speak highly enough about Malory. Her coaching to the deeply held beliefs we cling to and debunking the negative thoughts that hold me back have been life-changing. I have better tools to respond to the negative things and spend more time focused on my clients, my practice, and my fami (...)
Malory has been instrumental in helping with my mindset around the control I have over my business. I’ve gone from shame and embarrassment to pride and confidence in what I do for a living. Outside of being able to help me “get my mind right,” she also is full of tips and tricks that help with (...)
My relationship with Malory has had such a powerful influence in both my personal and professional life. We so often forget to care for our mental and emotional well-being and this job takes a toll on both. She brings both the expertise and encouragement to ask the right questions and deal wit (...)
I enrolled my AFR in the group coaching program and saw the benefit pretty quickly. John had more tools and confidence to lead himself and became a better problem-solver. He seemed happier and more able to manage stress in a healthy way. It was a way for me to invest in him to show him how muc (...)
Corinne is dynamite. She did an incredible job keeping my visions aligned with the activity required to achieve my goals. Her insight into my practice made it possible for me to reach production levels previously thought impossible and establish the habits required to maintain that success.
The AFR group coaching with Malory has been very impactful to every team member that has participated. Everyone in our practice has gone through or will go through this program. The group coaching has helped us set up personal boundaries, break through communication barriers, and maximize each (...)
Coaching in general, I think, it's amazing, and the work I've been able to engage in with coaching. When you ask questions in the right arena, certain layers just sort of evolve, or un-evolve, if you will. So if you are thinking about getting a coach or working with Alissa or any of the team t (...)
Coaching has been something that's been life changing from my personal perspective. I've always believed in the power of coaching and the power that your mind has on day to day activities, your practice and home. A fun fact that I took away from coaching with Alissa was all the negative though (...)
The retreat the past few days have been extremely transformative; absolutely life changing. Hearing about this retreat for the past two years, I was seeking validation behind the psychology in what we do and our energy. I think my favorite part had to be working with the horses and having that (...)
The retreat here is basically, there's no lying about what is in front of you. Not that I came trying to deny anything; I came very open. But, if you get too much in your head, your body will tell you where you are succeeding and where you have opportunities for growth, and this was an absolu (...)
Working with Corinne has been incredibly helpful in opening my eyes to some new perspectives I had not thought of myself. Phoning and prospecting have always been a difficult hurdle for me to overcome, however with several productive coaching sessions, she has helped teach me different strateg (...)
The coaching I have received from Malory truly changed my career. It has made me much more in tune with how I am wired to operate, both personally and professionally. I now function in a much more efficient and effective way, which has allowed me create a work environment I can thrive in.
Corinne is a key to success. You’ll hear time and time again that we all possess true potential to accomplish whatever we desire. In a practice and a career that relies 100% on your effort and approach it’s important to unleash this full potential. I knew I had this potential and ability in my (...)
After just two sessions with Corinne, I have already seen my coaching improving my skills in the workplace. So far she has assisted me in identifying self limiting beliefs that I held about myself and helped me to overcome those by giving me the tools I needed to self coach. She also pragmatic (...)
I honestly can say that there are very few individuals that have the positive qualities that Connie has. One side of her is one of the hardest working, compassionate, and selfless individuals I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Examples of this are her ability to not only hold all finan (...)
Corinne helped me identify beliefs that were holding me back from being my most authentic self and dissolve them. In a time when I was feeling tired and struggling with confidence, she helped me identify some of the reasons and challenged my thinking. I was surprised at how light and free I fe (...)
Connie is a rockstar - coaching seems to come so naturally to her and the impact she has on me is profound. Professionally, she helps me realize where my strengths lie. Personally, she helps shape me into a more well-rounded and confident individual. I specifically enjoyed our talk about how t (...)
In the short time I have had with Connie there has been a whole process of self-rediscovery. She is great at making you feel at ease and helping you determine what it is that goes around you. She has been able to give me a better perspective and understanding to things I thought I already knew (...)
Coaching had a big impact on my practice; it allowed me to be more focused on my personal practice. It taught me to make sure that I stay grounded to myself and how I want my practice to be run. It also helped me recognize and get rid of unnecessary stress that was caused because I was gettin (...)
Connie has been tremendous to work with. She has given me her undivided attention during our sessions helping me work through the self-imposed barriers to success in this career. The result of the conversations was a better understanding of my purpose in this business. By helping me channel my (...)
I believe coaching has had a great impact on my practice by making me understand more that I can’t control the uncontrollable. Now that I am understanding that more, my practice is moving in the right direction. The inner lizard was great as well just being able to have a more positive outlook (...)
The coaching with Connie has allowed me to take a step back when things aren’t going as planned and remind myself I can only control my business, not other people’s business. Another point that has stuck with me is to always remind myself that I am calling for the person on the other end of th (...)
Being that I was an athlete for the last 9 years of my life, coaching has become something that I see as necessary. Not only is it necessary, its somethings that is already implemented in the relationships that we have in our lives. As humans, we look to other humans for advice and guidance.
I was very skeptical of talking with a business coach before this process, but I came to look forward to each and every conversation with Corinne. The value our conversations provided me professionally and emotionally are something that I find to be invaluable. Through speaking with Corinne, I (...)
Connie has great insight into the challenges of being a successful financial advisor. More importantly, she is able to peel back the layers and get to the root of the problem. If you are looking to grow, both personally and professionally, and not just treat the symptoms, then connecting with (...)
By staying 99-100% personally in balance my practice performs optimally. With each point I go down, it starts to cost me in the amount of business I write. I attribute my weekly coaching session to at least $2K per week.
Alissa was, and continues to be, immensely valuable as we build a high performing team that works in harmony. She is able to spot areas for improvement and brings an impressive breadth of tactics and insights to bear in tackling them head on. She has been of tremendous value to me personally, (...)
Alissa Gauger will coach you on how to be more efficient with your time, thoughts, feelings, energy which will allow you the producer to generate more revenue. My coaching investment allows me to live a balanced life while also becoming one of the top advisors. When you decide to take this ris (...)
I’ve worked with a number of coaches over the years – each very good at identifying the areas where I struggle in my professional and personal life. Many have given me great advice and sound bites to help me direct my growth. None, however, have been as impactful as Alissa. She has a unique gi (...)
What I value most about my coaching with Alissa is that she is a fantastic listener. She has a natural talent to hear what I’m saying; then she can help me to pinpoint some of the root issues of what are going on. Though some of her techniques are a little out of the norm for me; I always find (...)
Working with Alissa has had a huge impact on my life personally, and professionally. She helps me see things through a different lens, which allows me to be a much better financial advisor and person. Alissa is one of the most sincere and thoughtful people I have ever met and I am very fortuna (...)
Going through the Unleash Your PracticeTM program was an experience I have been waiting for my whole life without even consciously knowing it until I learned about it at Annual Meeting this year.
2013 has been an difficult year. Between January and May, I endured $115k of premium reversals. (...)
I would say I’ve seen a huge change in self-confidence and in focus. Also, I’ve noticed that Jess spends more time focused on analyzing/understanding the other person in every interaction she has, which is critical to success in this business in selling or recruiting/coaching!
The 3 day Unleash Your PracticeTM program was the best personal/professional growth experience I have ever had. I think I have learned more about myself in three days with Alissa and her team, than I have in my lifetime. I called my boyfriend on my way home from the program and he could immedi (...)
Alissa helps me with my mentality about what we do for people. She’s helped with getting my thoughts centered and getting my head in the right place, so that when I’m pursuing or meeting with clients I am laid back and confident. It’s a lot more psychological stuff and less business planning, (...)
Alissa has helped me get my business back on the exciting journey it once was on. My energy, passion, and enthusiasm are at the highest levels they’ve ever been. Alissa does a phenomenal job of uncovering your limiting beliefs which are holding your practice down from the next level. Everyone (...)
I have already seen an increase in my Made to Kept ratio from 49% to 80% since participating in an Unleash Your Practice program!
With Alissa’s guidance, I was able to break down mental barriers that were preventing me from reaching my full potential.
The mental development of a financial representative is an evolutionary process. Every rep starts with several layers of blindness that make it difficult for them to clearly see the path to success. Alissa will help you to systematically peel the layers away, clear your vision and accelerate y (...)
I was skeptical at first because I thought it would be the same thing as my monthly client builder with my reps in my office. Luckily our conversation was nothing like that. I believe the findings of our initial 1 hour call will transform my practice and has already engulfed my body with the e (...)
The Kolbe helped transform our team! In the beginning it was hard for us to communicate effectively with each other because we are all different types of people. After Alissa had us take the Kolbe, and after she spent time with us as a group to explain how each of our team member is hard wired (...)
I think that everyone would benefit from this course in one way or another — even if they don’t work for Northwestern Mutual. The life skills alone are reason enough to go. I wish I could take this course every 4-6 months. This is an exceptionally safe place to learn and grow.
Alissa has opened up a a new way of living for me. She helped me understand how to authentically be me, and be comfortable and confident in that. I feel better about myself, with less stress, anxiety and self defeating thinking. I am excited to see the exponential effect of their coaching. A b (...)
I have been struggling with certain aspects of my business. At certain times I was questioning myself and if I can be successful in this career. After the program I am more in touch with myself, my confidence level is up and my enthusiasm is back. I realize that the only way I can be successfu (...)
Meeting Alissa has been one of the best blessings of my life. She not only has helped me jump my practice to over $600k in premium, but she has played a pivotal role in how I manage my staff, my relationship with my wife, and how I relate with my clients. When working with Alissa, be prepared (...)
It only took me 2 months into this business for me to see I was struggling in some key areas. Phoning, prospecting, running efficient meetings, and stress definitely needed to be worked on. In terms of production I’ve had a great start but I couldn’t lie to myself and think I would be able to (...)
After two of my Reps went through the program I noticed that they were happier, more confident, doing joint work together and were overall writing more business. It’s been a few months now and the changes are lasting. I am sending more of my Reps because I see the results.
Katie has given me control of my lizard and allowed me to recognize the difference between my perceptions and reality. I used to lose days because I would get flustered or angry but with Katie that has completely disappeared and the cap has been lifted off of my potential. I would recommend he (...)
Working with Katie has allowed me to let go of all the negative beliefs that have prevented me from accomplishing so much in my business. Since I started working with Katie, my confidence in my abilities to serve my clients as their financial representative has increased as well as my overall (...)
Katie has truly transformed my life. Not only has she had a huge impact on my business, but my personal life too. Katie has been able to help me realize my true potential, rekindle my work ethic, and helped me understand my purpose in life. The continued work with her has allowed me to push my (...)
Katie has helped me realize that there were a lot of personal issues hindering my practice in ways I had never imagined. We began the process of dealing with them and I have found that my life is much more peaceful internally. I have also found that I have a lot more confidence and composure w (...)
Katie’s coaching has made an immediate impact on my production. I've tripled my revenue in 3 months because I've been working with her on the mental side of the business. She has helped me with my fear and anxiety in the business and instead focus on my strengths. I worked with a coach in the (...)
Imagine you’re sitting down to do your dials and within the first five calls, you’ve already set at least 2 new people without any push back - the call was just a formality to decide on the time. Imagine they ask, “What would be helpful for us to bring to our first meeting?” These are the th (...)
Before working with Alissa, I was at the mercy of this business, assuming my seat on the roller coaster, hoping it would get me where I want to go. Through regular coaching with her, she’s helped me understand how to be the best me, and believe in myself. Now I am in the driver’s seat deciding (...)
I have had the pleasure of working with Alissa for about six months now. Alissa has had a HUGE impact on my life personally and professionally. My personal production is up significantly, our office production is up significantly, and my personal life has improved dramatically. Alissa cares so (...)
The time I spend with Alissa was incredibly valuable on several levels. I grew both personally and professionally through rich conversations that were both insightful and practical. Specifically, she was helpful in helping me address prospecting fears; through conversations with Alissa I saw (...)
Working with Alissa on a regular basis each month has made a huge impact in my practice! Initially, I was hesitant to begin working with a coach, thinking it would not be worth the time or money. However, after beginning to implement Alissa’s suggestions in my practice, I watched my production (...)
Working with Alissa has truly been life-altering. Gaining the understanding of how our professional and personal lives are intertwined has allowed me to focus my energy and remain positive through the storms of the business. I will be forever grateful to Alissa for challenging me to stop and a (...)
My FR and I approach our practice as a team. With Alissa’s help, we have been able to identify, understand, and best utilize each of our individual strengths and weaknesses as we move towards a Forum level practice. Understanding how we best work together and how to add appropriate team member (...)
Until I started working with Alissa I never connected work with fun. Alissa has given me an entire new outlook on my business; as a result I have built stronger relationships with new and existing clients and my premium per life has increased considerably. Alissa has helped me eliminate unnece (...)
Alissa has not only been a great coach, but she has become a great friend as well. My background placed a lot of obstacles in my path that I had no idea were affecting my business to such a large degree. I couldn't figure out why I was struggling so much. It took a little while for Alissa's co (...)
Alissa made a critical impact on my mindset before I even paid her for a coaching session. During our introductory meeting she addressed a mental block I was having around prospecting and walked through steps I could take to correct the issue. An hour later in my next meeting, I was able to g (...)
I was super hesitant and very anxious about the AFR hiring process. All of my previous associates had fallen into my lap, so the thought of sourcing my next team member was very, very overwhelming. I used Alissa’s tools and had a lot of conversations with Alissa throughout the process. This w (...)
Alissa’s coaching really helped me understand and appreciate who I really am as an advisor. Having confidence in my uniqueness has allowed me ask for better referrals and ask more of my clients.
It was invaluable to work with Alissa and have her take me through my Kolbe. It gave me great insight into why I do what I do and who I am best working with. Alissa has helped so many of our FRs overcome their fear of prospecting and phoning. She gives feedback that is straight to the point an (...)
Prior to attending the Unleash program I had a habit of living off power bars during the day. I knew that this was not the healthiest of lifestyles, but it was what fit my busy schedule. To me, I felt I was running on high energy each and every day until I attended the Unleash program. For thr (...)
Alissa has been essential and instrumental in my personal growth and has enhanced my communication with our team. She greatly helps me to align my individual goals with the overarching ambitions of our practice. She has been and continues to be an invaluable resource and coach.
