Allied Counseling, Inc.



Dr. Austin utilizes her academic education in both clinical and industrial-organizational psychology as well as her personal business experience as a board member at Ashley Industries and founder of Allied Counseling to assist companies in maximizing employee effectiveness, satisfaction, and retention while increasing sales and profits. At Allied Counseling, Dr. Austin and her team place significant emphasis on executive leadership because it has a powerful impact on both corporate culture and overall corporate success.

Succeeding in the World Economy means corporations are under great pressure to provide quality, competitively priced products and services with flexible customer delivery scheduling. Downsizing has eliminated many levels of corporate management and this has resulted in increased pressure on employs to more effectively manage time, internal conflicts and reach strategic goals while planning long range success strategies. That is why Allied Counseling also offers Artificial Intelligence (AI) Interaction Application Analysis for all business clients.

More specifically, Allied Counseling assists corporations by providing group corporate training programs such as Team Building or Leadership Development (see Corporate Services Offered) but places greatest emphasis on Executive (C-Class) Performance Coaching as a core business strategy because it is an essential component in any business’s success or failure. The Allied Corporate Services motto is: “The Business of Business is People” and the motto for the entire company is: “Together We Can Change Your World.” These two motto's were chosen by Dr. Austin because they provide a positive foundation for the corporate culture at Allied Counseling. A positive and strong corporate culture is essential because it connects employees to a unified awareness of purpose regardless of their specific function or location.

As a trusted and confidential business advisor, Dr. Austin works with corporate executives in discussing complex issues while providing sophisticated and supportive ideas plus an independent and outside view that is invaluable. It is an immense challenge today for corporate executives to cope with the many stressors associated with their work. Executive success performance is a learned skill and Dr. Austin uses an individual psychodynamic approach combined with current job performance quantitate data, such as The 360 Degree Feedback Survey, when doing Executive Performance Coaching.

One of the greatest challenges executives face is dealing with ambiguous information in ambiguous or uncertain situations while trying to stay calm and make the right decision. As a partner, Dr. Austin works individually with corporate executives to help them break through any unknown personal filters of inflexibility, fear, negative self-beliefs, limiting maladaptive coping strategies, and blind spots and then never place a limit on what they can achieve. More specifically, executive coaching enables executives to develop a more honest understanding of both their strengths and weakness while experiencing increased professional success. (See: Corporate Executive Testimonials)

Today major companies acknowledge that executive performance greatly affects the success of their bottom line. They also know that satisfied and empowered employees work harder, produce more, and their retention rate is higher. Taking the best talent in a corporation and investing in making it even better creates a win-win situation for the company, the employees, and the shareholders. Between 25 and 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies now use executive coaches because their ROI is so extremely high when they calculate the cost of a high level executive’s salary and the return-of-improvement in that executive’s skill level and decision making. Smaller companies are also are becoming more aware of the fact that hiring a talented clinical corporate psychologist as an executive performance coach is money very well spent.

As you consider the many benefits offered by the Allied Corporate Training Programs and the Allied Executive Performance Coaching Program, Dr. Austin suggests that you pause and ask yourself the following three questions:


  1. What are my two most troubling job issues and how long have they been bothering me?
  2. What would I like to discuss but is hard for me to say for of fear of being judged or misunderstood?
  3. Is today the day I am ready to partner with Dr. Austin and increase my job performance and satisfaction?


1. Allied Executive Performance Coaching Program:

A year long program where Dr. Austin meets privately with each executive on a monthly basis. After a first meeting of two to four hours, meetings can also occur by telmedicine (Skype, Zoom, Facetime, and telephone). Total monthly access time can vary according to cost but is usually about 3 hours (a one hour monthly meeting followed by 2 other total contact hours with Dr. Austin. The emphasis is on flexible, immediate and individualized executive assistance whenever and wherever it is wanted.

These Training Programs meet on a monthly basis for either three or six months. Each Training Program is from 9 am through noon with a 2 hour lunch break followed an afternoon session from 2 to 4 pm. Each of these programs is designed to deliver 5 hours of specific, and relevant information while encouraging active client participation. The longer lunch break has been found to be advantageous because it not only gives participants time to have lunch, discuss session information among themselves and conveniently check back with their offices. Therefore, clients return to their afternoon sessions more relaxed and ready to maximize their learning and participation.
