"Elle led our Problem Solver & Management Teams in her strengths program and provided her 360 Method for Respectful Feedback; it has made a real difference.
Elle is expert at swiftly getting who people are, and provides highly individualized ways for each person to bring out their best in a team context. She gave each team real life ways to focus on their mission-in-common rather than get mired in interpersonal snafus. She is vital to our effort.”
“Elle is uniquely gifted at digesting complex inputs and cutting through the clutter to reveal simple, actionable steps that prove to be truly transformative.
Elle's highly individualized method swiftly draws out people’s potential to quickly capitalize upon the team's unique strengths and gain greater understanding of each individual team member.
It’s an understatement to say that it is a great fortune to work with Linda Yaven.”
“Elle has the ability to strip down the excess and look directly at what matters. She enables our musicians to become the optimal version of themselves. Her “SuperPowers Workshop” leaves people optimistic, transformed and empowered to continue on their path. It is a cornerstone of our program.”
“To say my time with Elle was transformative is an understatement: I was able to achieve what I thought was impossible a year ago. Her ability to articulate your whole personhood is a rare and unique talent. She provided a framework for what I wanted to achieve professionally - working with her takes you to the next level. She has a gentle ability to get to the core of an issue that you might be avoiding, face the fear and build a new foundation together. She embodies the “growth mindset.” I felt challenged to be my best self with her; she taught me I can be my best self with everyone. Elle is a gift. Do not miss the opportunity to work with her individually or in a team. You will not regret it.”
“Working with Elle was one of the smartest decisions I ever made. She gave me the tools, insight and confidence to pursue a fully engaged and intentional life. Elle crafted a plan to shed past frustrations and define a vision for my purpose-driven future. Most importantly, she ensured my learning would never end by providing a framework for mindful self-reflection. I wholeheartedly recommend Elle.”
“Elle was a gift to myself. Like many people, I was driven to reach the next level in my career only to find, despite my experience and ability managing large digital teams, I felt like it wasn’t enough. Elle’s insightful coaching facilitated my development and achievements; I am more satisfied, less stressed, and overall happier. This personal confidence shines through to others.”
“Elle is an amazing coach. She showed me how to apply innovative thinking to my professional ( and personal life). I saw how to use my energy strategically and manage my strengths more effectively - our company has had amazing results.”
“Recently I gave a speech at a Grammy party of 500 people - and was simply myself. The group quieted as I spoke and I received positive feedback. Elle's structured system of goals/routines/patterns is a fantastic paradox of clear distilling points opening tremendous freedom - giving me ways to quickly focus on what I care about and jettison the rest. I experience more poise and power than I ever imagined. I highly recommend you.”
“Elle has a gift. It's like she is a reiki master for life -- and career. She’s shown me the pressure points holding me back and how to transform so they're moving me forward. Through her coaching, I’ve come away reset. The same person, but different.”
“Even high achievers with self-confidence lose sight of this from time to time. For 10 years I was “successful” as an executive without appreciating how my strengths were caged. Through Elle’s uncomplicated, smart strategies I have clear distinctions and an energetic lens to advance. It’s wonderful to experience more “energetic flow” – with people, ideas and implementation. Thank you!
“Hearing Linda Yaven speak I realized how constricted I've been by so much logical thinking about innovation and creativity. A weight was lifted: new possibilities showed up for our whole group.”
"You have given us a new vocabulary and language. This is both a highly integrated experience putting me in the mode of creative inquiry yet also super pragmatic. You have a gift for creating an environment where good change happens - you are an intuitive "maximizer" and soul catalyst."
"Elle's workshop for our staff was the best professional development training we have had in six years".
