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.

Regardless of the role, I thrived the most when developing, inspiring, mentoring and leading the people I worked with to become their very best self/ high performing team.

There was 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. This passion was definitely nurtured by my English and Media degree where I had to read several books a week!

I am also a trained befriender and local committee member 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 built a solid understanding of the importance of being the kind of leader others want to follow and I am passionate to inspire this leadership with the leaders of today and tomorrow as well as the businesses they are working for.

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

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, Skype 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! As 2019 starts I am currently reading 2 books:

'The Power of Acceptance' - AnneMarie Postma

'Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead' - Sheryl Sandberg

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. Such a thrill and a world away from everything else.
