Testimonials

  “ Elise is an incredible mentor and coach for new executive leaders. Elise’s ability to build trusted relationships and deep knowledge of the organization, values, culture and norms allows her to coach seasoned senior leaders to navigate a complex, highly matrixed organization. In my personal experience, as a new c-suite leader, Elise quickly helped me assimilate to the organization’s culture by asking probing questions, helping me to connect dots, ensure visibility and understanding of the political landscape of the organization.

 

In addition, she served as a coach to two of my new senior nursing leaders, supporting them as they acclimated to their new roles and helped them understand how to position their roles, navigate the organization and share their strategy while ensuring support from key stakeholders. Elise’s special ability to understand what is needed to help senior leaders succeed in their roles is unbelievable – she is a strategic thinker, dedicated professional, and continues to be a trusted advisor to me and my team. ”

        Elise helped me work through different elements of my career that helped develop my skillsets along with the ability to help guide others. I’ve also been able to talk through how to present certain updates and where to ask questions to gain feedback from the team that, allowed for better collaboration efforts. I’ve been able to go to Elise for questions even after our formal mentoring was completed, which has helped me as I grow within my organization and my career.
