About Me

"Through Elenas inspirational leadership, coaching & mentoring she transformed poor teams & individuals into good ones & good ones into great ones, time and time again."

Bruce Kail, Former Head of Operations

I worked for almost 20 years in the banking sector in senior operational and leadership roles. During this time I had the opportunity to lead large scale, multi site operations as well as lead central functions including Quality Assurance, Learning and Development and Policy & Process Change. 

Since building my business, I have been fortunate enough to be able to use my experience to coach and mentor others, either privately or as a consultant for larger scale programmes. 

Regardless of the role, I thrive most when developing, inspiring, mentoring and leading the people I work with to become their very best self/ high performing team. There is no greater motivation than seeing an individual or a team reach their full potential.

In my downtime you'll find me with my family, my friends and my dog. I am partial to a glass of bubbly and I love listening to music (and playing as I am a violinist). 

I also love reading, either for pleasure or personal development (a passion nurtured by reading several books a week at uni for my degree!)

I am also a trained befriender, committee member and local secretary for the charity SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society). This charity is close to my heart and I regularly fundraise to support them too.

How I Work

The mentor/coach: client relationship is one built on trust and it's vital you choose the right person to support your team/ your business. 

 

Throughout my career I have seen the impact of inspirational leadership on individuals, teams and businesses. Being the kind of leader others want to follow is something I am passionate to inspire in others.

You will find me to be a strong motivator and a strategic thinker who is intuitive and observant. I will be your trusted partner and supporter. 

You can read some testimonials from people who have worked with me before here.

Understanding the importance of a healthy work : life balance I offer a flexible service depending on my clients' needs - sessions can be over the phone, Zoom or face to face and I can support via email too.

How I Develop Myself

TED Talks - These are a constant source of inspiration on such a variety of subjects for me. If you're not already a regular watcher, start now!

Development Reading - As a certified book worm, this is never difficult for me! By booklist for 2020 includes:

'My Own Words' - Ruth Bader Ginsburg

'How to Own the Room' - Viv Groskop

'The Power of Acceptance' - AnneMarie Postma

'Start with Why' - Simon Sinek

Regular sessions with my mentor/ coach - Throughout my career I have had the support of coaches and mentors. Their knowledge, experience and perspectives have been, and still are, critical to my personal development journey.

Personal challenge - I am currently training to get my helicopter pilot licence and my TEFL Level 5.
