Solutions for well-being

We begin in collaboration. We listen to your concerns, challenges and identify the results you ideally want to achieve. Our process is simple, yet robust. Our expertise is empowering women managers and leaders to thrive at work and in life. We help you make the changes you want to make and help you prioritize well-being along the way.  When leaders are aware of their own stress levels and take action for self-care, their staff, teams and organization benefits.

Did you know when employees have decreased stress, less conflict and lean into their strengths, it helps to prevent burnout?  According to Stress in America’s latest report, 87% of Americans are feeling high levels of stress.  We can help. We do this by seeing things that others miss, allowing us to help you uncover the root cause(s) of what’s working and not working.

Our coaching conversation model or training programs increase accountability, awareness and leads to positive and purposeful change.   Whether it’s to identify your roadblocks and stressors, uncover blind spots, gain clarity or show you how to break unhealthy habits that get in the way of being your most effective and joyful self.  We do this in conversation; discuss, solve and help you implement a viable solution that directly addresses your needs. ECG’s methodology includes utilizing a myriad of techniques, tools, training and assessments to ensure you are satisfied by the results.  

We care about creating practical, healthy solutions and achievable action plans so you can be successful in making the changes you want.
