Ashley Winston has provided professional development experiences for teachers and emerging leaders in Chicago Public Schools. Her approach, processes, and reflective exercises allowed participants to identify and break down barriers, both internal and external, to envision action steps to build community, and to develop strategic partnerships to assist in reaching one's goals. Participants in Ms. Winston's programs leave the experience with a shifted world view toward results and solutions to problems once considered insurmountable.

I always thought that these giants needed to be defeated by me, alone. And I had all these strategies and all these things that I wanted to do, and all I got was tired and frustrated with not seeing the results that I wanted to see, with not feeling secure with my identity in Christ, with knowing all the theory and just not being able to tap into it in my real life. I guess I never expected this to impact my life in so many levels, because I only thought it’s going to like free me in an emotional level or spiritual level. But the changes that the Lord has done in my life through my coaching with Ashley, has impacted not only my emotions and my thought life and my spiritual life, it has impacted the way I do business; it has impacted the way I do ministry; it has impacted my leadership; it has impacted my personal relationships.

One of the most fun and powerful presentations our group has ever experienced. I can’t wait to implement what we learned.

Wow. You just got to see Ashley work. I mean, I've really never seen anybody work a room the way that she does. Her energy is electric, it's contagious. She connects with people immediately and she kind of has to because she is getting in your business on today. She's cutting through all of the fluff. She's cutting through all of the excuses so that you can be the very best version of yourself because that's her business. That's what she's here to do.

Ashley Winston does an incredible job engaging participants in her workshops and making the content relevant to classroom practice. She worked collaboratively with us to develop a customized agenda and resources that specifically targeted the needs of our organization and our partner teachers. Ashley masterfully balances her artistic and creative expertise with the educational rigor required for the 21st-century classroom. She understands the challenges teachers and artists face and was able to provide effective strategies that elicit the best from teachers and students.

In a word, working with Ashley was transformative. Whether we are talking about growing in God, in business, or as a person, her questions and counsel help me get clear on what is holding me back, get past it, and move forward at warp speed. My money doubled month over month, I have more clients now than I’ve ever had before, and my programs, offerings, and services are expanding. I couldn’t have done it without her. She is anointed, she is loving, she is a force of nature! She loves God and she loves His people, and she is good at what she does. She gets results, she lives results, and she will help you get the results that you want in your life.
