Elena's professional development never feels rushed. She takes the necessary time to explain procedures, but more importantly, her voice speed and calm demeanor communicate that she values our learning more than getting through the agenda.

Elena created an almost instant rapport with our group of 85 people. Her warmth and passion were infectious and she established an incredibly safe learning environment for us to take risks in so that we could improve our coaching skills. This was a workshop that will transform my work.

Elena's keynote and workshops were practical and spectacular. Her engaging manner, relevant examples, and energizing exercises were exactly what we were looking for. She was an excellent facilitator for our group of school administrators. I would recommend her to any group of education leaders.
