About Coaching

Ellen as Coach

Coaching is a partnership between the client and the Coach, in which the Coach empowers the client to make decisions that align with the client’s own personal values, visions, and goals. An effective Coach creates the space for the client to explore opportunities and arrive at conclusions that work and last, because the right answers are the client’s answers.

Just like there are different types of clients there are different types of Coaches: 

  • Some people are most successful when they are able to follow someone else’s plan or program.
  • Others benefit from yearlong programs that help them develop all aspects of their businesses.
  • Many coaches & consultants today are available to sell you their program, a blueprint, per se’, for success – generic and concrete.

On the other hand, there are those of us who must forge our own paths, in our own ways. This is the type of client that will benefit from my style of Coaching.

Many Hats

A consultant is an expert – As your consultant, I will share my knowledge, experience, and business savvy to help you get from point A to point B as efficiently and effectively as possible.

A coach facilitates self- discovery – As your coach, I will provide the opportunity for you to formulate your best solutions through powerful questions, time for reflection, and accountability partnering.

An organizer helps you get things done – As your organizer, I will use my natural propensity for analysis, process, and order to ensure that you move forward in the most effective ways possible.

A leader inspires and motivates – As a leader I understand how to  inspire you to accomplish your goals and vision in a positive and motivating way.

When we work together, you’ll have access to my many hats – all worn to support your success.

Leveraging Productivity To Drive Leadership Excellence

There is no playbook on how leaders can use productivity to lead their organizations. People assume that it’s a natural skill. However, just like I wouldn’t assume you could sit down and play the piano without training and support, you shouldn’t assume that you can be productive or a strong leader without training and support.

I’ve learned many lessons from my clients:

  • I get that changing habits is hard, especially for my global-creative, macro-thinking, 50,000-feet-view clients.
  • I know that even the best leaders benefit greatly from having a safe, trustworthy confidant to talk through the challenges that they face.
  • I know that even highly organized, methodical clients may need support to improve their systems, or they just may be so buried that they need an objective outside supporter to help them dig out and see the forest through the trees.
  • I know that people think that to be effective, systems must be complex. In fact, the truth is exactly the opposite. If it’s not easy . . . it’s not going to stick.
  • I understand that just because you are excellent in a job doesn’t mean you know how to productively lead a team.
  • I get that when the leader isn’t clear and focused, the team isn’t clear and focused.

Leading a team is hard. Leading a productive team is harder.  It takes the right balance of a positive work environment and solid systems to achieve team flow.

Utilizing both my coaching expertise and my leadership and productivity skills, I support my clients in being as effective in their work as possible, while leading a life that’s authentic and congruent with their personal goals and values.
