Coaching Process

Empathy
Challenge

Elaine enabled me to consider options without judgment. Her exceptional listening skills to “hear” not only what I was saying, but also to perceive what was behind my words gave me the courage to express what was really in my heart. Elaine made me feel safe in speaking my mind. As our coaching sessions progressed, I was impressed with Elaine’s ability to recall facets of our earlier conversations and identify common threads. Elaine intuitively knew when to listen, when to be empathetic, and when to push or challenge.
