El ese is a great mentor and motivator. I learned a great deal from her and though our paths have changed, I continue to follow her and val ... ue her insight. She is honest and able to convey a message of seeing the "other side" of complex or difficult situations. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work under her lead.
Wilhelm Hast

Elese has extraordinary insight into what has people produce great results. Her coaching points people to their innate capacities for insigh ... t, clarity, creativity, wellbeing, and performance. No project is too big or complex for Elese to take on and she is a joy to be around - very playful and very professional at the same time.
Robin Charbit
They're my advisor  •  CEO, Insight Principles, Inc.. Previously Director (Managing Partner), Arthur D. Little.
Elese as a sound knowledge of how business works and what is required to be successful. In addition to her considerable Project/Program Mana ... gement skills, she really understands and knows how to impact the human dimension, i.e., what is going on in people and how to have them be at their best given the tasks at hand. If you need someone to understand the situation, see what the route causes are, and know what and how to turn it around through the people involved, she's your person. I trust her skill and integrity without qualification.

Yolanda Garcia, PMP
We worked together  •  Previously Sr. Project Manager - Contract, NCI Building Systems, Inc..
I have no hesitation recommending Yolanda as an entrepreneur given her innate ability to see the strategic big picture and craft the details ... needed to underpin it. Her total dedication to customer needs and her unfailing positive attitude under fire would be enough in themselves, but Yolanda is unique in that she manages all of this with a smile on her face and positive, resolution-focused attitude to challenges. An asset to any business that wants to accomplish what they set out to do.

Angus Alvarez
They're my mentor  •  President, Alvarez Automotriz.
Angus is an innovator, always looking to improve what he does. He stands apart from the entrepreneurial crowd, not just because of his skill ... in leading the company to multi-million dollar business results, but with his keen focus for assuring the quality of his operations, in particular, the human side of doing business.
