I spent eighteen years working in the insurance industry, helping businesses with employee benefits. During that time, I discovered my passion was helping people develop and grow professionally.
I believe a successful career or business requires developing your most important asset – people. The organization benefits from increased productivity and employee enrichment by empowering teams to work together.
As a Certified Executive Coach and Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, I incorporate the individual’s strengths with company goals to show how working together achieves engagement and results in increased quality & productivity.
verb (as·pire | \ ə-ˈspī(-ə)r \) aspired; aspiring
Definition of aspire:
1. To direct one’s hopes or ambitions toward achieving something.

A company’s greatest assets are their employees. Today’s employees are struggling more than ever facing new challenges and burnout, limiting beliefs, and more. Leadership has never been more important. People matter, and because people matter, leadership matters. At Aspire Professional Development, I help leaders develop through relationship building, communication, discovering and utilizing both their own and their employees’ strengths to work interdependently for a more enriched and productive work environment.
Joining the Aspire Professional Development team as a client has been the best investment I could have made for myself personally & professionally! I not only noticed remarkable growth as a female in the business world but also as a leader for my team. I recently had a performance review at the end of 2nd quarter and in 6 months our team has grown over 120% in new account sales as well as over 80% with our existing clientele. Angelique and I began our coaching sessions at a crucial time for me this January. I was full of self-doubt and seriously considering stepping down from my position in management. We began by attacking one challenge at a time - the biggest one was my mindset. She is great to remind me that it is I who is doing the work and holding myself accountable to the goals we set in our sessions. Although I have grown to acknowledge my strengths, I must give her credit for helping unlock my potential and breaking down those walls of limiting belief I had become too accustomed in carrying with me. Thank you Angelique & can't wait to see how far we can go!
I absolutely love my coaching sessions with Angelique. I have grown so much, not only as a leader, but as a person. Her ability to pull strengths out of me and help me discover some I didn’t realize I had has been incredible. I cannot thank Angelique enough for helping me to be my best self!
Caris Foundation International- Kenya Leaders workshop by Angelique Liles was a game changer. 18 team leaders participated in an intensive workshop focusing substantially on identification and utilization of strengths to achieve the vision of the organization. The leaders also benefited from insightful lessons on levels of leadership and how they impact teams. All the 18 leaders identified their 34 strengths by taking the CliftonStrengths assessment in preparation for the workshop, which focused mainly on the top 5 strengths. The leaders are now more inclined to identify and maximize strengths among the people they lead for greater productivity and performance. The ability to lead through strengths coupled with positioning of team members based on their strengths and capacities is enhancing effectiveness as clearly exemplified in the following testimonies. We are thankful for the kind generosity of Executive Coach, Angelique Liles for the impactful workshop.
Working with Angelique Liles and Aspire Professional Development allowed me to gain a better perspective and understanding of what I needed to do to become a better version of myself. She has the unique ability to make you feel comfortable with the process.
Angelique, without a doubt, brought the most intense, growth training and educational session I have ever been through! It was hands down phenomenal! Her high-level engagement helped our team realize its true potential and how to work together as a cohesive group to gain new ground. She was very thorough and stepped us all through every single piece of the strengths test. Personally, I would recommend this to any and every team there is! It will show you so many pathways to new growth! Highly recommended! Highly!
