Coaching Programs Expert, Culture Builder, and Private Client Coach

For Individuals

Is Accomplishment Coaching for YOU? 

You are: 
- making a transition or looking to improve your current situation
- looking for clarity and implementation support personally, professionally, or both 
- mostly your own boss in work and life - for better and worse!

Programs for One: Private Client Services

On a very limited basis, I work directly with individual private clients to achieve career and personal development goals.

Individual Coaching

  • Direction: Get the relief of realizing you know more about what you want than you thought, in a single session.
  • Accomplishment: Once you know what you want, get it! Get accountability, strategy support, and encouragement to succeed across competing priorities. End your week like a gold star champion, knowing you are accomplishing what matters most to you.
  • Executive: For founders, executives, and professionals dealing with the unique pressure of leading, we work on the business and leadership challenges in sync with the personal ones.

Coaching Private Client Stories
When you step back from all the technology and business, my most fulfilling moments are seeing changes in people's lives from the work we do. Some of these stories are from coaching, some from productivity improvement. I am grateful to these earlier clients and still love telling their awesome stories.  I hope they inspire you too.  For current services and client case studies, see specific services.
Errika: Learning to lead strategy
Errika took her strategy and communication game to the top.

She has gone on to be the powerful right hand to multiple Superintendents and head of Community Relations as a respected and inspiring community leader.  

Great leadership!
Karina: Pro career transition
Karina is such a rockstar.  Enjoy the energy of this fast track pro who made the transition from midlevel to senior exec. Since this video she's gone on to even bigger roles as textiles innovator, making an impact across industries.

Rent Jungle: Increasing sales
Meet Jon Pastor, successful entrepreneur and his team of salespeople. We worked to increase their sales 30% largely by changing the mix of sales team activities.  Individual salesperson's productivity increased on average over 150%. The company was successfully acquired and continues to grow.

Suzanne and Audrey: Mother and daughter tackle her first career job in NYC
How can a high powered mom provide support and also step back so her daughter can grow a career on her own?

Sometimes a little coaching can bridge the gap so the support doesn't get lost in the mother-daughter relationship.

Kudos to Suzanne who went on to run global study programs, worked from Cambodia, and now runs marketing for the olive oil farm.
Linda: Retiring to the beach
Linda worked her career at IBM, where she experienced huge changes in corporate America.  The career she once loved became extremely unpleasant. Early retirement became a matter of health.

She had always done everything by the rules, but dreamed of the freedom to play.  Cape Cod, Maine had always been her happy place. She and her husband had brilliantly purchased a beach cottage on Cape Cod and rented it out for decades until now they could finally live in it themselves full time at the beach.  We worked to help her find her freedom, have the fun she always wanted, and still have a beach-friendly retirement income.

About Me

I help techie and not-so-techie professionals develop transformational online projects and businesses  without having to do it all themselves.

The world needs more positive solutions from people who really know their stuff. If that's you, my goal is to lift you higher. 

Ready for someone to bring out the best in you and have your back while you hit a milestone you've only hoped for before?   

This is the magic and meaning I bring to everything we do together. 

Working with Elissa

"Elissa is a fantastic partner in helping you really get clear on what matters most to you, and what is your true definition of success. Her process of guiding you to create your "to feel list" instead of your "to do list" is genius. She's a stellar coach, creative thinker, and outstanding speaker. 

I highly recommend experiencing her work and get the support you need in fulfilling on what matters most to you in your life."

- K.C. Baker, Women's Thought Leader Institute, California

"Elissa combines a razor sharp intellect, honed at McKinsey and sharp well before that, with astonishing insights about and with people. She can be both a peer and a mentor to leaders of all ranks and experience. 

I have found her personal coaching insights invaluable, and her ability to engage on exactly the pivotal issues unsurpassed. Few people I have met possess her level of wisdom and insight."

- David Hagar, Executive Coach and Leadership Programs Executive 

"Elissa and I share a passion for self-improvement, not quick-fixes. She focuses on the bottom line, is a creative problem-solver and experiments with the best of ideas from a variety of different traditions. She's also a really great friend and a fun person to hang out with. 

I'd recommend her to anyone looking to take the next step to becoming truly accomplished!"

- Dr. Christine Whelan, Professor of Human Ecology, University of Madison, WI
