I'm Ellie, a Strengths-Based Corporate Coach
Keeping an edge and remaining competitive in the fast changing world we live in is the biggest challenge for many individuals and organisations. As a coach, I believe that everybody has the potential to grow into the best version of themselves - both at work and at home - and that every team can achieve tremendous success and results.
I work with a diverse range of clients: from government, healthcare and global companies to smaller, family-run, businesses to help them grow their cultures and develop their people. I help them improve employee engagement, productivity and sales performance.
I coach managers to better understand their strengths and 'blind spots' and move from 'good' to 'great'.
Over the last 10 years I have helped many leaders in the area of talent selection, management and retention and provided strategic business planning and advice to a diverse range of clients. As a fully-certified Gallup Strengths Coach and with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Queensland, I use the latest science and evidence-based psychometric tests and business analytics tools in my coaching. Some clients I meet with only once and for some I am a trusted business and talent management advisor and a 'go-to' person for sounding out' important ideas and decisions.
I also love working with individuals in life or career transition using a wide range of life coaching, solution-oriented, strengths-based tools to help them achieve more than they would achieve by themselves.
A little Bit About Me
and why I love my job
I was born in Eastern Europe and have lived in 6 countries. I worked as an investment analyst for the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development (EBRD) in London and ran a successful, award-winning street-wear label 'Firetrap' (UK) - all before I was 27 years old. At Firetrap, I managed a team of 20 staff and looked after more than a thousand accounts across Europe. In the year 2000 I moved to Australia and worked as a business consultant for legal and accounting firms and the Queensland Government. Throughout my career as a business consultant and brand manager, I realised that I derive enormous pleasure from helping others succeed and be their best self. This led me to gaining my coaching certification with Gallup. As a strengths coach, I love helping clients better understand their talents and strengths, achieve exceptional professional results and live their best lives! I live with my husband and two children in Brisbane (Australia) and love yoga, meditation and healthy eating.
