Her Mission: to empower Career Professionals, Leaders and Business Owners to create, build and lead to achieve their own personal and professional success.

I'll help you find meaningful work, regain confidence, navigate change, work smarter and deliver results.

I believe we all have the power and capability to change our experience and go after the things we want.

One of the most fulfilling aspects of my work is that I get help others do just that, on their journey.

I enjoy working with my clients to find ways to work smarter, increase problem-solving skills, manage and lead their workforce, increase sales, and improve their business strategies.

My training in Coaching was with an accredited coaching institution and I currently hold my Associate Coach Credential (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). I am committed to coaching to the standards for coaches globally set through the ICF’s Core Competencies and Code of Ethics and am member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) – Atlantic Chapter.

I have 18+ years of experience in Sales, Marketing, Management, Operations, Sales Training, Coaching, and Workforce Development with Fortune 500 and large companies, most notably Xerox Canada.

Large-scale Workforce Development initiatives that I've led at Xerox Canada include: Employee Engagement, Employee Recognition, and Employee Wellness. I've acquired valuable experience in Lean Six Sigma, Business Process Outsourcing, and managing Service Delivery teams.

My strength as a coach is my ability to support my clients in thinking situations through, examining them from all sides and helping them weigh all the pertinent evidence, so they do not jump to conclusions, but truly select the best solution possible.

I have a passion for helping my clients see the big picture and make sense of business complexities. Through the trait of hope and belief in a positive future, I support my clients in expecting the best for themselves and having resilience to work to achieve it.

As a Career & Business coach, located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, I work with clients in Canada, the United States and Internationally.

I'm SO looking forward to working with you!

What others have to say...

"Making the leap from employee to business owner has been both exciting and terrifying! Connecting with Ariana at Emerging Outcomes has been the greatest business move I’ll likely ever make. She is a gifted coach who consistently gives sound advice for all facets of my business (e.g., marketing, client services, growing my business). She helps me to stay focused on my goals while providing me with ideas that I haven’t yet explored. Ariana gently guides me to work through inevitable challenges that arise when creating your own business. Ariana has chosen the perfect name for her business as I can see my life and career goals emerging from my dreams to achievable outcomes. Thank you Ariana!"

"Ariana and I met in a coaching class and immediately connected. We agreed to coach one another to practice our skills and share our coaching business ideas with each other. What I got out of my time with Ariana was so much more than that. In addition to her friendly, warm approach and exceptional listening skills, she used her intuition to guide our coaching conversations in a manner that best served me. She had great suggestions when I needed ideas for my business, but she also wasn’t afraid to “dig deeper” with me when she sensed there was more going on than what I was telling her (or even realized myself). She helped me see that my biggest challenge wasn’t how to get a coaching business started; it was trusting my own intuition to guide me and allowing my passion and creativity to conquer the fear of failure. She ultimately helped me get comfortable with not jumping in 100% until I was truly ready and giving myself “permission” to change course as I saw fit. This was an important insight for me given my committed, driven nature. As a result, I relaxed and stopped worrying that I was doing enough to get my business going. I feel more confident it will happen when it is meant to happen, and I’ll be ready!"

"Ariana, brings such a great perspective and insight to coaching. She’s asks the right questions to guide you through whatever your needs are.  She helped me turn around my thought process from a negative to a positive, by creating an easy step by step personalized approach to tackling my journey. Through Ariana’s coaching style, I was able to get over personal hurdles and simply face what I need to do to launch my own business. It was such an eye opening and rewarding experience!"

If you could have met me two years ago, you would have seen a busy woman working 9 hours per day, exercising three times a week and hanging out with her friends all the time. Was I happy? The answer was no. I hated my situation so much, but I couldn't find a way to escape from it. I didn't know how to start to change my life. I lived almost two years without direction and being completely ashamed of myself. I was tired of that situation.

...I started to look for a life coach and I met Halifax. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, but I started to create goals for myself with Ariana's help.

I knew it was important to beat depression with exercise, so I started to get serious about my relationship with the gym and I wanted to lose weight.

And...I started a blog where I can share my experiences, particularly about being a new-comer to Canada. I always loved to write, but often I felt bad about making mistakes in English. I don’t have the best grammar expertise, I don’t follow structure, but I also know my strength is my positive mind. In one week I have reached almost 100 people on my page on facebook and I have more than 1 thousand views on my blog. 

I have two different projects for my career and I am more confident with my choices. My relationship with Ariana is based on trust and I know that I won’t be judged for my weakness. She encourages me to look for options around and choose the right moment to develop each one. Being coached by Ariana, who is a high performance coach, taught me that I can do whatever I want. I am very glad to have met her at this time in my life."
