"Elaine is more than a coach; she is a great business partner. I have worked with Elaine over the course of two years. Elaine brings espirit de corps to her professional engagement through candor, holistic thinking, and a high level of professional experience in navigating the nuisance of leadership development. She is a subject matter expert, and worked directly with myself and my staff. She was helpful in not only developing the high level strategy or approach, but worked to help develop the tactical details of the execution plan. I wanted a plan that was real, practical, and produced results. Elaine worked tirelessly with my team, and was willing to put in the extra effort, which makes her a true professional. My team benefited greatly as Elaine was able to help them develop awareness of blind spots, and coached them effectively to reduce and manage their vulnerabilities. Each of my Directors was able to improve communication within their teams and with their customers. Overall, we were able to build a high level of trust in our department, which helped us become a high performing team."

"My relationship with Elaine goes beyond that of client and coach. Elaine is a friend, confidante, and partner. She is the quintessential executive coach and servant leader. She puts her family, friends and clients first. She is caring and compassionate, but can get to the heart of a problem with her insight, intuition, and business acumen. She brings out the best in people. I know this, because I witnessed her success firsthand. Elaine stays current, and continually adds tools to her toolbox to help meet the needs of her diverse client base. I recommend Elaine for any coaching engagement."

"I cannot express my gratitude to Elaine on her guidance and insight. I would not be in the position I hold today without the powerful examination of my strengths and weaknesses. The tools she gave me years ago are still relevant, and I use them to this day. My career path speaks volumes of her guidance, commitment and honesty."
