Success stories of Aspire
“My experience with the Aspire Center was very beneficial and provided a large amount of insight. Starting my first session, I was dissatisfied with my current position and was strongly considering applying for new positions. By the end of my sessions, my perspective and feelings towards my current role have done a complete 180. I learned more about my strengths, goals, and personality that reinforced the reason I chose a career path in leadership. Taylor helped me to look past the challenges I was going through and provided feedback and suggestions that helped me immensely to change my attitude. She listened to what I had to say and I could tell that she truly cared about me as an individual and my success with the company. She had me think about topics and ideas that I did not previously. She also informed me that there is a committee for recycling (one of my passions) that I have since joined that fills my bucket outside of my job requirements. Although I did not need assistance with applying for new positions, had I needed/wanted to, I know that I would have been in good hands. I am so thankful that we have the Aspire Center as an option to those who require their assistance. Wonderful program and team!”
