Jennifer Guzman

Train Service Manager II - J.B. Hunt Transport Services

“Abby was as an exceptional coach who helped me unlock my potential and motivated me to maximize my performance at work and outside of work. She also helped me understand and take to heart the value of diversity and take advantage of every opportunity to demonstrate and attest to its importance”.

Kristal Gano

Director or Performance Measurements & Analytics, Arvest Bank

I was partnered with Abby Foster during a time in my life where I didn’t yet know how much I needed her guidance and support.  I was coming out of a season that revolved around raising my small children and as they needed me less (hands on and day-to-day) I wasn’t sure how to refocus and find the identity in myself again.  Abby was so patient to listen, and she offered integrity and respect in keeping our discussions confidential.  Working together, we outlined a life plan for the 6 months going forward that literally changed my course.  I discovered a renewed self-confidence and leadership skills that had been hiding below the surface.  I was able to purposefully re-align my activities (professional, social, etc.) to my core values.  Abby equipped me to be intentional about the things that were important, and give myself grace to turn away from things that were not enhancing my life.  I will always be appreciative for the services Abby offered, and I will consider her a mentor for life!”

Jennifer Horton

Director, Global Audit - Walmart

“Abby has been an amazing coach to me since I had met her. She was matched as my mentor through the PLE program that I had recently attended. We met every other week outside the classroom, and the advice she had shared with me especially helped me to make changes in my life to improve my leadership and make me more effective and efficient in both my personal and professional life. She is an amazing listener, and she was always prepared for our sessions. The sessions were specifically tailored to me, and I appreciated the time and effort she put into preparing for our meetings. Despite graduating from the PLE program, I consider Abby to be a lifelong mentor and friend.”

Tim Nyander

Utilities Director - City of Fayetteville

Abby Foster of Ahnimisha Consulting performed and completed a Succession Planning Project for the City of Fayetteville, AR Utilities Department in 2017 – 2018. The Department’s goal was to lay the groundwork to be able to identify and develop our future leaders in the normal course of business.

Ahnimisha Consulting, and specifically Abby Foster, presented a process to the Utility’s management team that developed our insight on potential leaders, as well as what experiences, values and skills we felt were important in our future leaders. With her experience and guidance, we were able to select several high performers, and several currently hold management positions within the organization.  Along with her experience and attention to detail, Abby was able to present real life examples of the benefits, as well as how to avoid pitfalls when developing our future leaders. She knows how to inspire managers to really examine what direction their organization is going, what kind of future managers are needed, and what their skill set needs to be in order to be successful.

I would recommend Ahnimisha Consulting as your professional of choice when undertaking a Succession Planning endeavor in your organization.

Mandy Schaefer, CRMA
