Elaine Sigurdson, Insight to Action

Elaine Sigurdson



For over 30 years, I have been a trusted partner to individuals and companies seeking executive coaching on leadership skills and long-term career management.





Leadership Development

Organizations seek executive coaching for their high performers to build their leadership skills and prepare them for future progression.  I work one-to-one with clients to address their particular needs, and support them as they try out new behaviours on the job. I use assessments and exercises to provide insight into strengths and put a plan of action in place to address skill gaps. I know that the real blocks are often emotional and coach clients on stress management strategies to stay focused through challenging times.

Both the client and the organization benefit as clients build their skills and effectiveness as leaders and prepare to take on new challenges.

Career Management

Individuals frequently seek executive coaching for support with career management.  Career management coaching looks beyond the challenge of the moment to put a plan in place for the bigger picture and longer term.

I coach clients to know their strengths and look for opportunities to leverage these.   At the same time, I encourage them to become aware of self-defeating habits, and to set challenging goals which may require stepping out of their comfort zones.  I also encourage them to stay on top of what’s happening in the broader context and to be prepared.  This means continually developing their skills, building their profile and their brand and expanding their networks both within and outside of the organization.  And if the time comes to move on, I work with clients on job search strategies – resumes, Linked In, interviews -that get results.

Retirement Careers

I also work with accomplished leaders and professionals looking for the next step. These clients  seek retirement-career coaching to plan how to fulfill life-long dreams or passions, apply their skills to causes that are important to them, or give back to others through mentoring and coaching.

The coaching process worked wonders for me.  At a critical career juncture where I was faced with an important decision, Elaine helped me discern a path that aligns with my unique strengths and interests.  Even more, I now feel more fully equipped for my leadership role. I was impressed by Elaine’s professionalism and found the whole process very worthwhile.
