Elaine’s contribution to our cultural development and leadership programme has been absolutely essential. She really lived the journey with us, keeping us on track and ensuring that the necessary stakeholders saw the value in what we were doing. When we were buried in day-to-day business, she brought us back to our ultimate goal of defining, instilling and improving the Dr. Martens’ culture. There’s no doubt that her contribution has helped strengthen our organisation and contributed to our commercial success.
Having a corporate background, Elaine is able to work with senior leaders and with teams in highly complex organisations as well as coaching individuals seeking to develop themselves. Elaine is an excellent coach and I highly recommend her.
Elaine possesses the rare combination of strategic, operational and leadership expertise which makes her one of the best in the field of developing leaders, building high performing teams and coaching executives. Based on her proven track record of delivering outstanding results with organisations like Tesco and Heathrow I trust her work implicitly and know that her deep commitment to bringing out the best in others is exemplary.
I have great pleasure in highly recommending Elaine to any individual, team or organisation. Elaine will work with you collaboratively to understand the root cause of any problems you are trying to solve and will come up with a joint plan to help you implement long term positive change. She will be a fantastic asset to you either as a personal coach or in working to improve a team or an organisation’s effectiveness.
Elaine has a level of piercing insight that one very rarely comes across in their career with an ability to ask highly intuitive and insightful questions that makes time with her highly valuable
Elaine is always driven by the need to achieve a “win-win” outcome, balancing the needs of those she coaches, business requirements and customers. It is this multiple focus, but more critically how she operates, that makes Elaine a very unique and prized individual. I would have no hesitation in recommending Elaine to anyone looking to coach and develop their managers into awesome leaders, capable of inspiring their teams to deliver the seemingly impossible.
When working at the individual level, Elaine has an uncanny ability to ask the ‘right question’, which enables important personal insights and the start of self discovery. I have both experienced this and observed her achieve it at very senior levels within the organisation. She does her work here with a frank, challenging style coupled with a deep sense of care for the human beings she is connecting with. Once you have worked with Elaine, it will be hard to let her go!
Elaine is always keen to use a range of approaches through the course of our coaching conversations. The coaching constellations (creating maps) approach provided real simplicity and key insights into the working dynamics of my team. Specifically, I was able to understand and explore the relationships with individual members, if this relationship was where I wanted it to be and what corrective actions I should explore in order to create a thriving and enjoyable environment for everyone to succeed. Since working in this way our team has become stronger, more aligned and more supportive of each other, which has enabled us to bring more value to the wider organisation.
