Coaching Process

Thoughtful Feedback
Career Results


Elaine was able to guide my self discovery and development plan to not only be successful in my position, but to choose a path that was the most beneficial to my personal and professional happiness. She listened, gave thoughtful feedback, and pushed me to work on the things that would be critical to my growth. I credit Elaine with helping to shape my future steps and ultimately land in the role I was meant to be in. I was so impressed with Elaine’s style, professionalism, and results that we retained her for coaching several other leaders in our organization. All of the feedback I received from the leaders, their bosses, and peers was stellar.
