"I met Elena Espinal in 1999 in Buenos Aires Argentina, in the Coaching Institute she created and lead, ICP.

I was impressed of the Elena Coaching Seminars at the ICP, regarding the transformation and the results People were getting from her Coaching and Support. I also assisted to two magnificent conferences, one with more than a thousand people, and 500 hundred in the other. I saw her power, the possibility that the people saw through her words and action…. It was unbelievable that one woman could create that power in two hours.

As the HR Director of Colgate Palmolive Argentina at that time, and with the support of the General Manager, I hired a Teamwork and Coaching Seminars for the top Directors and Managers of the Company. On 3 days sessions we created the basis for a new Culture, where: Trust, Accountability and Commitment powerful distinctions made a difference in the transformation.

Elena was the Coaching Senior Leader of that activity and she then conducted the follow up into action of the whole initiative, in meetings at the Company with top level Management for 6 months.She helped us to “create and play a bigger game”, a new world of possibilities.

The Motivation and Business results were Excellent!! a terrific equation for any Company. I will always remember one question from Elena at that time, how much Colgate is selling? You can do xxx more!! My own question was, how Elena sees a Business increase, what is she looking? then the results with the activity. And it’s clear to me that the power is in the People, however, you need an incredible Coach as Elena to bring the energy and a sense of fulfillment in the People to add value to the Business.

This was my direct experience, I know she increased the Business in “Jugos del Valle” and now leading a Company. I believe, just such a Professional can create new possibilities in different business through the Coaching and her Personal and Technical Competencies."

"I have known and worked with Elena Espinal since 1997 and consider her to be a professional coach of the highest caliber. As one of the founder’s of the field of coaching, the first person to certify coaches in 1985, having written the first published article on coaching (“Coaching and the Art of Management) in 1989 and having produced the first international videoconference about coaching in 1987, I am confident that she meets the highest standards of our profession.

Elena was a leader in bringing coaching to Argentina beginning in 1999 as co-founder of an accredited institution offering a two-year coaching curriculum and training over 200 individual practitioners before being sold in 2003. She also has worked with me on a number of corporate engagements designed to introduce a culture of coaching in large organizations---including clients such as Federal Government of Canada, a multi-national dairy products business, a large Mexico based beverage manufacturer and numerous small enterprises. Her work has included coaching several dozen senior executives including three or four CEOs over extended periods of time.

I have certified her at the mastery level based on my standards and have observed her in dozens of coaching conversations including several that were extremely complex involving deep individual patterns and strongly negative cultural resistance to change. She is exceptionally skilled in working with both individuals as with teams.

Elena Espinal has been unique in my experience in her ability to synthesize several different fields (paradigms) and communicate transformational ideas to people in simple and straightforward ways that create openings for unprecedented action. She is an adept listener and demonstrates a deep and natural compassion in her interactions with those she coaches.

Of all my students over the years, Elena has consistently exceeded my expectations and shown maturity and creativity to her application of the principles of ontological coaching. She has my unqualified endorsement for certification by the Federation. I am open for further conversations and to give additional examples if requested."

Jim Selman, CEO, ParaComm Partners
