Hi, I'm Ling Abson.
I work with managers in the tech industry who want to be an effective leader. They're overwhelmed with the people side of things and struggle to motivate their teams. I help them conduct better one-on-ones, deliver effective feedback and build a more engaged team so that they can be the manager the team trusts.
Ling took the time to understand the dynamics of my team before making suggestions on how to align the team better toward a common goal. Ling was very direct with her advice to me which I appreciate. She is willing to dig into difficult situations and give you direct advice on how you can make your team more effective.
After working with Ling, I have more clarity in that I need to show more confidence as a leader. Also, she had showed me how to involve my team more in the planning process in creating priorities and creating a team vision. I would recommend Ling’s services to other engineering managers. - Kim Moir, Engineering Manager at Mozilla
Since working with Ling, I have been able to become conscious of when I am sliding back into my old way of being too tactically focused.
I was impressed by how well prepared she was and just how insightful she were when listening to me. She has the ability to pick up on the key moment that brought breakthrough moments in my self-awareness.
As a new senior manager transitioning from an individual contributor role the cadence of regular meetings with specific exercises between them provided a framework to manage the massive changes I was experiencing.
Managers should know that Ling is committed to helping you achieve the best you can and that she is willing to travel with them on the journey. I highly recommend anyone moving through a similar transition work with Ling to accelerate their learning, it can be a game changer.

I was really struggling with feeling overwhelmed, having a lot on my plate with no clear action plan to get everything done.
In no way did I expect to receive 100% clarity, yet I did!
During our call, we mapped out what time of the day I’d be most productive to do the tasks on my plan that required the most energy for me. I also let go of creating a perfect website, instead, I’ll use an agile approach and develop my pages in iterations, so it’s constantly improving.
The session felt like it was perfectly designed for me, I got everything I needed and more. I got a plan but also the excitement and momentum behind the plan to see things through. This call really is designed to “get shit done”. A session to gain clarity and design a plan to move from where you are now to where you want to be in the next 90 days or beyond. I loved it and still feel energized from the call. Thank you sooooooo much! - Cathi
Before the session, I was skeptical about the results, how this one-time session is going to get me going and hold me accountable.
During the call with Ling, I realized quite a few things that I was holding on to, which were making me procrastinate and I was undermining myself in a way. This was the BEST part of our whole session, me being able to see the realities behind what's holding me back. I was able to pinpoint the stories that I was telling myself with Ling's help.
Ling is considerate with a kind heart, asks insightful questions that get you going and makes you contemplate. She was able to hear and understand compassionately while talking about the action steps I needed to take to move forward in my journey.
For anyone, who is thinking about working with Ling, I would say, go for it! She has been there, she has done it herself and she is sharing her best possible insights and knowledge to help you in your journey. You will not regret choosing to work with her. - Hira, Creative Coach
Before I started coaching with Ling, I was feeling overwhelmed with having many goals and no accountability. I run my own business and have no one to answer to but myself, and I found that I just wasn't getting the things done that I wanted to complete. I didn't know where to start and I didn't know how to break my big vision into smaller, actionable steps. I was also feeling like I had lost some of the inspiration that had initially got me to get my business started.
Since starting the coaching sessions with Ling, a few things have shifted for me. I’ve learned that my business can be as fun, light, and inspiring as I want it to be! There's more than one way to convey the message that this life is worth waking up to and truly living. I've been able to apply this shift to the flow and format of my classes and presentations, my daily schedule, and my fears around the use of social media. At the end of our coaching series, I'm much more empowered at work, in posting on social media and in believing that what I do is really making a difference.

Before I talked to Ling, I was struggling with how to take all of my ideas and refine them to get an offering to my ideal client. I felt that I needed to have an outside view of where I’m overthinking and under performing.
I was blown away by the session with Ling. She was able to unravel what I felt like was a dump of information and came out on the other side with clarity on my direction as well as very specific action steps that I need to take in the short term to move in the direction of success.
I felt like the hour that we spent was the most productive thing I had done all week. I left the call motivated and energized to get to work and deliver on my action steps. - Alexis Shaffer
I really enjoyed my coaching experience with Ling and am so grateful to have had a chance to work with her. From the first session, I felt valued and heard, and in following each session felt even more understood and guided.
Ling graciously listened, reflected what she heard, and offered powerful suggestions of tools to try and practices to experiment with. I appreciated the balance of not being pushed nor let off the hook. I also appreciated Ling's presence and openness with me as I knew she was really there as I worked through issues, and cheering me on as I did the work. Thank you so much, Ling. - Stella Burchard, Business & Creative Coach
In the one hour call, Ling showed me how to rationalize my fears and I'm now starting my Facebook campaign which I hadn't been able to do for half a year. I now feel very positive about making the changes I need to move on to the next step. - Margaret Summers
Ling Abson is an absolute game changer!!!!!!!!!! Her technique is gentle, sincere and effective. I had a huge AHA within thirty minutes of speaking to her. Instantly I was able to move out of a place of resistance and into a place of action. My life will never be the same! I recommend Ling to every woman who knows they are on this earth for a bigger purpose and ready to make it happen. - Jennifer Tucker, INN Certified Health Coach
