What people are saying…
“Marie Elena is a guardian business angel. She’s protected me from the daily pitfalls, hurdles, and challenges that I’ve learned to call opportunities. She’s coached me how to lead through the dark with confidence and courage. I think back to pre-Marie Elena days and I’m instantly filled with gratitude that her support has brought me so much further forward.”
“Marie Elena helps you discover and unlock new ways of listening, communicating, and understanding — what is required to truly display grace under pressure. It’s not easy to shift from ‘how do I get what I want out of my career?‘ to ‘how can I be of service to my team?‘ Only when you begin to turn the ship can a new course can be charted.”
“Effectiveness and impact at all levels… Building trust, developing skills, and creating an environment that leverages strengths and shores up weakness are all key takeaways from working with Marie Elena. The care and focus she placed in helping build our business made it time well spent.
“Transformative! Marie Elena is an incredibly gifted executive business coach. I’ve seen her in action and have personally benefited from the design of her workshops. Her work, and more importantly, her presence, are transformative.
“One hour with Marie Elena is indeed life changing! Her value is immeasurable and I feel so lucky to have experienced her listening ear, wise words of advice, and the support to do what is most authentic and right for me.”
“The leadership training created a forum for us as team leaders to share our wisdom, experience, advice and camaraderie — promoting both long-term problem solving and real-time leader-to-leader bonding. The skills training is valuable and unlike anything I’ve experienced working for other companies.”
“The opportunity to connect at a different level with other leaders in the shop makes a difference in how we interact day to day. The group and individual sessions have been very beneficial in presenting alternate ways to listen and engage, and address conflict, and provide tools that are actionable and relevant. I’m grateful my company offers this benefit.”
“Tools for more effective communication, relationship building, problem solving, and motivating… With leadership coaching, we are actively pursuing the building blocks for a new, scalable, impactful foundation — an incredible first step to educate, motivate and arm a small leadership group with the necessary skills to help make us even greater than we are today.”
“Significantly added to my growth as a leader, as a manager, and to my overall development… My staff is translating our insights into action by building stronger teams and collaborating. There is an openness and willingness to change on all levels. I am so grateful to management for providing this.”
“The entire staff now has a shared vision to create a ‘Culture of Ownership’ — leading to a stronger team and better work culture. This, and the skills that the team and I have learned, make us stronger individual leaders, and set us on a more effective path than ever before.”
