"Working with Elie was difficult in all of the right ways. I had a breakthrough each and every session. He was able to get straight to my core, gently guiding me through thoughtful inquiry, reflection and experiential exercises." - Tisha Tucker, Senior Associate, ICF, Greater NYC area
I co-create powerful coaching experiences
I have no agenda or prescribed program, each one of my coachees is my canvas and I go all in to help them realize what they want most in life, very often by overcoming what is most holding them back from it; themselves.
I only coach a rare breed of people who's values are more important than societal expectations, who's spirit and desire to achieve is much more important than settling for average or even good enough. I coach those who have the courage to own their mistakes and put their actions where their mouth is. I coach those who want to live life on their own terms and be agents of good in their business and communities.
For those special humans, I am present 24/7, for the entirety of the time we work together. My network becomes their network and when appropriate my business and life expertise becomes theirs.
When I work with my clients, I listen to them intently, with empathy and understanding. I hold them in a safe space to be fully themselves AND I hold them to a high standard. I am direct in my communication and have a no Bull Shit approach. If I think my clients are kidding themselves or playing small, I immediately challenge them to step up.
Taking the leap is scary, it gets worse, with me you will be challenged to take several ones. Yet in the grander scheme of your unique life, let me ask you: what is truly more at risk? Having the courage to show up and fail (not that I am expecting you will) or nearing the end having to ask yourself "what if I would have shown up?"
With my clients, we often start working together on a three to six months basis. I am very grateful to say that to this day when we've made it this far the majority of them have seen tremendous benefits and choose to extend our work together. On average I work with clients for 15-24 months. I have several clients I have worked with for over two years.
Coaching is done virtually (phone or video depending on preference) or in person. Coaching is one on one or for groups.
Depending on the intensity and length of the program my clients invest from $1,000 to $30,000 to work with me.
All compensation is paid prior to the first coaching session and is non-refundable. If my clients choose to quit for any reason, all compensation goes directly to Freetheslave, a charity that empowers human trafficking victims to start their own local businesses.
More importantly, though, my clients invest their time, their energy and themselves to grow in all areas of their lives.
For those who say "I'm IN!" And to whom I say "I'm IN!" I've seen "Miracles" happen.
