With Ellen’s combination of perception, warmth and genuineness, Ellen was able to connect quickly with the entire team, both in team workshops as well as individual discussions. Ellen very quickly pin-pointed those areas the management team needed to focus their efforts and enabled open discussions combined with enlightening group exercises. The outcome of her time spent with Microtune has been a more effective management team and an improved sense of teamwork with the entire company.

Ellen Castro has helped me to improve relationships with my customer. Her greatest talent is to search for and discover the underlying feelings and perceptions that impact the relationship, and then to work out a process to re-build trust which then forms the basis for improvement actions. Ellen has high integrity thereby securing that real problems are uncovered and any actions that are initiated have the right effort and focus to deliver results.
