My name is Aly Pain and I am The Conflict Coach. I help business owners who have settled for less, create what they know is possible. My clients typically struggle with the understanding and skills they need to have difficult conversations. As a Master communicator, I’m an expert at decoding relationships to create engaged cultures. I support my clients to become better leaders, attract and retain better people, and grow bigger profits.
I was referred to Aly as a coach to help me dig deeper into my purpose, both personally and for my businesses, in order to create greater clarity as I moved forward. It was incredible to discover my purpose and vision for my coaching practice and myself! It was like the pieces of my life’s puzzle falling into place and giving me full permission to authentically show up and make the difference in the world that I was meant to make. Work became easier and delightful, and I’m filled with even more joy everyday!! By working with Aly I’m continuing to grow my businesses, achieve high levels of success and make a difference. I’ve just recently started a non for profit to top it all off – sparking more joy for those who could use a smile.
Aly and I have worked together for more than two years. In that time, she has inspired and coached me to be a more effective leader as the President & CEO of Predator Drilling. Aly has challenged me, supported me and given me the confidence to make the difficult decisions in my business. She has empowered me to confidently believe in myself and boldly share my vision. She has believed in me and my abilities and encouraged me to keep moving forward. Aly has helped me to increase engagement and passion with not only my direct team but team Predator as a whole. This has created fantastic results for us. We are generating better financial results in this $40.00 oil environment that we did when oil was $100.00+ and with 27% less people. The level of performance excellence has allowed me to create a sweet spot strategy which uses high skill and high profit margin services and allows us to offer customers more and will change the market share as the economy picks up. It is with great pleasure that I wholeheartedly endorse Aly to any company looking to increase their level of leadership and business development.
I felt like I was treading water, and wanted to figure out where to go in the future. Without a sense of purpose – I didn’t know where I was headed and couldn’t make the right choices in terms of investment and energy. With Aly’s help I have begun the journey of learning who I am – which is an important part of moving forward. I think part of the reason so many people flounder is because they don’t know, respect or appreciate themselves. Understanding me and my purpose has helped me start to prioritize and make choices that will ultimately lead me to achieving what I want.
I was feeling out of balance and in a sense a lack of integrity – like I knew what I needed to do and just wasn’t doing it. I was looking for clarity, accountability, motivation and connection back to my purpose and goals. I am excellent at implementing and achieving but if I’m not clear on my path or the direction I want to go I get overwhelmed and feel despondent and stuck. Aly helped connect me back to my purpose, find my path with clarity and propel me forward again – all at the same time as finding peace and humour with where I was currently at; living in a new country with a toddler and new baby, and what was realistic for me to achieve. One of my greatest take always is having humour around my perceived imperfections. The ability to laugh at myself when things fall apart or don’t go according to plan. ‘Ta – Da’ that was me ? Being a coach myself, I am really picky about the quality of coach I work with. Aly is one of the finest I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with and anyone getting the chance to work with her will be thrilled by the results they get.
Having been in many workshops and trainings around the subject of values, I wasn’t new to this concept of attracting ideal clients based on similar values. I had a feeling Aly would bring a whole new level of understanding to the table. Of course, she delivered just that. Aly compassionately encouraged me (and the others) to look at what I thought was a top value, FREEDOM, as my driving need or factor instead. (Your driving need may be something else). Like the air I breathe, I cannot be truly happy and successful in my business or effectively serve my clients unless my driving need, Freedom, is maintained and nurtured. Understanding freedom in this way has brought such a clarity to my life and business as to why some ideas, decisions or relationships have gained so much momentum, while others struggle to get started. Aly was creative and brilliant at helping me use this driving need along with my other top 4 values and craft them into my life purpose statement, my vision, to act as my guide for future decisions. The clarity in decision making will help me serve my clients in a more powerful and innovative way, build connected, thriving communities in a more exciting fashion, and allow me to do what I do best,bringing people together and giving them a platform to shine. I am excited to attend more of her workshops and to continue to work with Aly on a more frequent basis.
I came to Aly in the hopes of strengthening and growing my leadership skills and confidence. Throughout our sessions, I learned valuable skills and tools that could be applied to the day to day interactions with my team, in specific situations, and in my overall approach. Having those aha! moments with Aly prepared me to deal with conflict, to build confidence and to have clarity on my path moving forward. These skill sets fostered my growth within the company, and ultimately empowered me to launch my own business, pursue my passion and find a fulfilling future!
I hired Aly to help me grow my business and find a better life balance. She helped me discover my vision, values and purpose allowing me to use them as a guide for better decision making; which is invaluable for life!
Before becoming a coach over a decade ago, Aly spent an additional 10 years immersed in personal development programs as a participant, assistant, and facilitator candidate. Aly has learned the nuances of effective communication, personality styles and the critical elements of powerful leadership.
