Coaching Process

coaching process

I met Elaine when I joined one of my former companies.  She was working with quite a few of our senior leaders, and since my role included oversight of executive coaching, I interacted with her and collected feedback from her clients on a regular basis.  Elaine had a strong reputation, and was definitely on the short list of favorites.  So it was an easy decision for me to invite Elaine to join the “vetted coaches pool” for the subsequent two biotech companies for which I worked.  I knew, based on my previous interactions, that she ALWAYS goes above and beyond expectations.  She is professional, thorough in her due-diligence, and truly dedicated to supporting leaders during their self-discovery as well as providing opportunities for insight that lead to profound changes.  Elaine is a top-notch executive coach. I believe in her capabilities so strongly that I even hired her to be my own coach at my own personal expense.  If you’re looking for someone who is truly in your corner AND who will push you outside your comfort in a good way, Elaine is the coach for you.
