"Elisa's coaching made all the difference for me in the workplace. I learned to understand my coworkers and their needs. We could then develop tools for resolving conflict and opening up the lines of communication, while improving efficiency and overall work product. In addition, Elisa helped me assess my own needs personally and professionally, and achieve better work-life balance."

Strong organizations are made up of strong individuals. The problem is that most individuals may receive months, even years of skills training, but they never really learn how to deal with people. Interpersonal and professional conflicts take up enormous amounts of needless time, energy and money. Private coaching offers individuals an opportunity to fine-tune their people skills, build relationships, become better communicators, and lead happier, more productive lives.

Elisa Levy coaches individuals on a short-term basis, and helps them first identify their goals, and develop the tools they need to achieve them. Her coaching is highly interactive, and involves simulations and hands-on work. In between sessions, she gives her clients reading, writing and communication homework assignments to maximize their time with her.

Elisa's clients come from a wide variety of industries and organizations including CEOs of private companies, sales people, doctors, nurses, teachers, and parents. Her topics depend on the needs of each client. Some of the most common subjects are:

Anger and Stress Management
Studies from the Department of Health and Human Services shows that between 80 and 90 percent of all illnesses are stress related. Our emotions have incredible power over us, and most of us do not know that we can control them. Elisa Levy gives individuals simple tools for the body and mind to control their emotions, and to communicate in a healthy, and productive manner.

Leadership
Learning how to motivate, inspire, and create systems of accountability are some of the most challenging skills anyone can learn. Many leaders are highly knowledgeable about their companies, products and customers, but not about people skills. Elisa Levy coaches individuals and teams to help them maximize their potential. She teaches tools to help leaders deal with difficult people, motivate and inspire, and create strong teams.

Relationship Building
Relationships are the foundation of all business and personal success. Most people struggle with at least one significant relationship in their lives, and find at times, they are lost in how to improve them. Elisa Levy coaches individuals to improve their relationships, by teaching new ways of understanding others and themselves, and by giving clients tools to communicate in ways they may have never tried before.

Self Esteem
Most of the problems we experience in the outer world are merely reflections of the world within us. Self-worth is not inherent, it is cultivated, and often times, requires a great deal of effort. When we begin to recognize how we view ourselves, and the self-talk that goes on our heads, we have mastered the first step to change. Elisa Levy helps clients understand clearly how they see themselves, and teaches them how to move past self-limiting beliefs and behaviors.
