Why Work with a Coach Now?

Today’s world reflects the cacophony and chaos resulting from competing memes regarding the best ways forward. Everything we knew and depended on in the past is up for change such as democracy, patriarchy and hierarchy and that creates anxiety as well as opportunities for new approaches to emerge.

Amidst such change, it’s natural to experience frustration, overwhelm and even burnout that drains our vitality and makes resilient responses to theses changes difficult. To find new ways of staying focused in face of uncertainty and regain a clear sense of purpose, coaching is useful. 

Eleni is primed for moments like this, when we all have the chance to show up in our most effective selves to shine in face of adversity. When we each integrate our whole selves, we feel more in control and can better activate solutions that we would not have thought of before. Eleni cultivates an open and confidential coaching space where all topics are up for discussion so as to integrate the mind and heart en route to achieving exciting goals. 

Eleni also works with teams and groups, supporting human-centric workplaces where people thrive. Cutting across a multi-generation and multi-ethnic workforce, coaching with Eleni helps meet each person's needs that also align with what’s best for the entire team.

More Info About Executive Coaching

Executive coaching, also called leadership coaching, is a judgment-free way of naming the elephants in the room, transforming blocks and achieving desired outcomes all while developing into a more sophisticated and fun version of oneself. It's based on the Socratic Method, when the coaches asks powerful, clarifying questions that reveal insight that leads to clarity regarding next steps.

Over the last decades, executive coaching has become an accepted organizational practice across the globe. The demand for coaching has increased with C-Suite and other executive leaders funding bigger initiatives due to the consistently high ROI and the decision to transform toxic work cultures.

Executive coaching is strictly confidential and the coach and client are equals in supporting the client's intentions and goals. During coaching, any topic related to the person and his/her goals is discussed to remove obstacles and open up options and choice. It's common that personal issues are explored while building leadership skills as coaches speak to the whole human who can question inherited mindsets and broaden their minds to lead in more impactful ways amidst increasing uncertainties.

Coaching is not therapy: while we attend to emotional distress, we do not provide diagnoses or analyze past history. Coaching focuses on making client's current situation better for a better future.
