“ELI at Queens has become an extension of our company’s effort to identify, train, and develop leaders. We rely heavily upon this partnership and appreciate the flexibility to custom build a leadership program that is designed for the needs of our teammates. This cycle of growth has been extremely gratifying to watch: our first team graduated from ELI 3 years ago, immediately moved into new roles, and began to successfully shape their own departments. Now the next generation leaders they selected have also graduated from ELI.”—Chief Executive Officer, Manufacturing/Engineering Client

“The quality of my executive coaching experience was very high. My coach was well skilled to address my particular needs and interests. My assessments were custom selected based on the goal I wanted to achieve. He was a gifted, active listener; able to quickly get to the root of things. Together, we honed in on a focused set of leadership behaviors and we discussed ways to create opportunities to practice the new behaviors I wanted to exhibit. From meeting to meeting, we discussed the changes I was making and the impact they were having. The coaching engagement was highly focused and relatively brief – just the right amount of time- spent on the right things.”—Coaching Client, Department Chair, Healthcare Client
