About Elena

Be the best that you can be. That’s my call to action and I love a challenge!!

As a Kayaking Coach and a competitor in the sport of slalom kayaking, I became really intrigued by the effect of the mind on the body. Performance management in sport is much closer to real life than you would ever believe and my keen sense of adventure means that I’m always up for a challenge.

Managing performance, to be the best that we can be, means being aware of what’s affecting you and your team and having the tools to adapt quickly in a changing market. I’m passionate about life long learning and love to show people how to make a smooth transition into successful practises, balancing work and wellbeing with achievement and results. 

That's me in the blue helmet:)

My background in training and education has given me the tools to understand team dynamics and the realisation that teams are only as good as their leader. Leading people can be like herding cats unless you have a long term plan of action – a PEOPLE PLAN. 

Change Management means learning what you don’t know, to facilitate a change in perception and develop a common purpose in your team members. 

Millenials, mental health, mindfulness, mmm – what else begins with m? Do you want to Make More Money? Work with me to find long term solutions to every day people problems that are holding you back.
