Director and Owner, Blue Gnu
Elaine is a highly gifted and experienced facilitator. A high proportion of her work is with CEO and Executive Teams in a diverse range of sectors - she has experience in Health Care, FMCG, Elite Sports and Pharmaceuticals. Her background is in Learning and Development focusing on Leadership and Management.
Elaine’s objectives at each client remain consistent – to develop leadership teams, people and cultures to improve overall company performance, develop high performing teams and enhance personal relationships. Elaine uses many consulting and facilitation tools to achieve these objectives; including Insights Discovery & MBTI; of which she has been a qualified practitioner since 2003. Her particular area of specialism is Organisational Culture and creating, designing and implementing behavioural frameworks which enable organisations to measure how people behave which in turn drives their business, and client partnerships, forwards.
Elaine is energised by being with others and facilitating conversations and events. She loves nothing more than observing people as they have a ‘moment of clarity’, either about themselves or someone they work with.
She enjoys personal challenges (completing swimathons, triathlons and Tough Mudder events) and maintains a busy lifestyle. She likes to volunteer her time to assist charities and has sat on the board of a local nursery as a Chair and Trustee. Being a mum of two active boys and owning a golden retriever and several free range hens keep her busy when she isn’t at work!
Elaine sits at wheel position 26 on the Insights Discovery wheel and is happiest as MBTI type ENFP, which means that she:
Is adaptable and adventurous
Will try anything at least once
Builds relationships quickly and effectively
