As an ICF Certified Professional Coach specializing in Career Transition and Leadership Development, Elisa integrates her education, a career in operations management, and her international experience to effectively guide leaders to higher levels of effectiveness throughout their professional journey. Fascinated by people, how they connect to each other and which motivating factors become their catalysts for change, Elisa has led teams and coached individuals working within a multi-generational environment, across industries in the US and worldwide since 2009. Elisa coaches Strategic Leaders, polishing their soft-skills to move vertically or horizontally within or across companies, helping to repackage their strengths for their next position. Together with the client, Elisa co-designs a “blueprint” of action steps that hold a client accountable, as they commit to favorable shifts in behavior. In addition, she formulates an individual’s “value proposition” or personal brand, based on the accumulation of continuously sharpened skills, natural abilities & interests and priorities during different phases of their career.
Elisa has delivered over 500+ workshops and coaches executives on job search strategies, résumé writing, Linkedin profiles, effective marketing techniques, interviewing and negotiating. Skilled in applying results of 360 Assessments, Birkman, MBTI and DISC, she coaches to integrate new behaviors and actions moving executives towards becoming a stronger leader. Her background in management is her foundation for coaching leaders as she understands first-hand, the challenges related to delegation, engagement, developing talent, connecting silos and providing the “gift” of feedback. Elisa’s style is down-to-earth and authentic, removing any pretense in a coaching relationship. When her clients are 100% committed to achieving their goals, she steps up and delivers best-in-class coaching and follow-up actions items, tailored to her clients' goals in areas of personal effectiveness, enhancing business acumen and corporate visibility. Elisa is flexible, objective and places heavy emphasis on maintaining a "no-judgement" zone.
