I like the homework tasks that I got, because they really helped me to reflect and see where I need to improve on! I liked the questions Eleni asked to get to the root of my problems which led to events that happened in my childhood! Learning to communicate better with my family and clients. I am very grateful for Eleni for helping me to create an effective conversation process for my discovery calls to position myself as the solution for my ideal clients. I give her a 10+ as I am extremely satisfied with Eleni. She’s very patient, knowledgeable and I appreciate her support and feedback from working together!

I love working with Eleni. I most appreciate her high emotional intelligence. Many times I had “AHA!” moments when she brought me to an epiphany about my behavior or how I reacted towards others. I hope Eleni considers communication programs strictly for personal communication. She helped me both with corporate AND personal. One key thing was Eleni pointing out how to focus on the other person’s perspective, not just mine. It was an eye-opening moment. Once I thought about it from both perspectives, it became easier to communicate and also to control my reaction to bad communication I was experiencing. I give her a 10! I would highly recommend Eleni for communication coaching, she is the best!

I appreciated the adjustments to help me get to my deeper emotional stumbling blocks and the techniques she used to get me there. I also appreciated the tools and resources she gave me to embed thinking and practice strategies to push me towards my goal. My learning points centered around why I overcommunicate and why I don’t feel concise in presenting and communicating with clients. I learnt that I self-doubt and pre-empt questions which is why I overcommunicate. I also learnt where this stems from, going back to childhood criticisms around my work. From this I was able to learn what I need and that the self-doubt and questioning I is me feeding off these earlier criticisms. I learnt the need therefore to accept my thoughts. I give her a 10 – Eleni was clear with what her aims were and adjusted to meet my needs. She also provided some great resources to help embed my learning to progress towards my goal.

Communication is one of the essential tools for helping get what you want and need out of life, and yet, no one is taught to communicate effectively with people. Which is exactly why you need Eleni. She is brilliant at helping you create communication channels that not only empower others, it helps make your life so much easier. So, many people in leadership and management rolls just don't have the skills to communicate with everyone on their team. Simply because they weren't taught how to, which creates so much friction within the team. And a sense of hopelessness in the leader. But Eleni has the ability to help you change all that. If you're looking to be a strong leader who empowers and supports your entire team, you need Eleni on your team. If you are a small business owner who is looking to learn how to attract and work with your clients better, you need Eleni on your team. Communication is the key to changing lives - including yours - so let Eleni show you how to do it better. It's her area of genius and she's freaking awesome at supporting you to become a better communicator.

I recommend Eleni, she is so professional and so gentle in guiding coaches.
