'The first time I heard Alison speak was at her house, where she and her husband Friedel hosted a group of professional speakers. I was immediately touched by her passionate, connective and articulate manner of communication.
'I thought she was careful in crafting her sentences, along with a measure of careful confidence. After some time of getting to know her as a colleague, friend and business partner, I understood why. Her cautious, passionate and compassionate manner of communicating is deeply rooted in her self-awareness and social intelligence.
'I later understood that she practices what she terms as Identity Intelligence, a term that made me aware of how my identity frames how I relate to others. Reading this book has been equally a reiteration of those earlier observations, with even more intentionality and a refreshing level of intellectual intensity. Alison is truly an intelligent, soulful and emotionally committed linguist, with a powerful, needful message of healing and courageous transformation.
'I can confidently say that my relationship with both her and Friedel has been, for me, just as much of a journey of finding my tribe with them, with reference to the title of this book. The book epitomizes her unpretentious, reflective and authentically generous self. She generously shares with us her vulnerabilities in a transparent and courageous manner. She reflects a journey of self-love and self-discovery in a deeply profound way.
'Reading the book leaves me with a lot to reflect on, many courageous dares and gratitude to have had the privilege of being part of her tribe.'
