Thrive with Ellen Castro

Thank you for connecting.

While COVID killed the traditional workplace, it has not killed our resilient spirits. Now is the time for us to create a new workplace that keeps the workforce engaged, productive, innovative and happy which positively impacts society. I can help you optimize your efforts and results with my decades of experience and earned wisdom.

Trust remains your competitive advantage especially in today’s virtual and skeptical world. Trust impacts business outcomes and is genderless. Trust sustains psychological engagement that creates followership, enhances teamwork and fosters collaboration for innovation and customer loyalty. It’s the informal networks of trust that keep businesses moving forward regardless of organizational changes, the economic environment and world affairs.

Imagine people gave you or your organization a score on how trustworthy they perceive you. Your trustworthy score ranges from 1 to 7 being high. What would be your score? A couple of quick reality checks to consider:

When you turnaround is anyone there?
Does your culture promote heroes or zeros?

The answers matter.

Optimize your organization’s effectiveness with a third-party Employee Engagement/Culture Audit. Given a sample cross section of employees for a face-to-face meeting or a Zoom call, you’ll get an honest baseline and the specifics where you and/or your organization is today regarding trust, leadership and engagement. With my caring, active listening and questioning, your employees feel safe to provide real feedback to get to the real issues. They’ll feel valued because you cared enough to ask for their input instead of a digital survey. Based on their feedback, my observations and business acumen, you’ll get a customized solution. As a bonus, I always identify hidden talent who otherwise would go unnoticed.

Optimize your current leadership and future bench strength by investing in Executive Coaching. I’ll bring to light the behaviors, blinders and perceptions that are hindering progress and promotion. You cannot change what you are not aware of. With my constructive unfiltered observations and insights, individuals learn how to excel by creating relationships of trust, exuding executive presence and creating followership with a brand built on credibility and excellence.

Optimize your Diversity and Inclusion to create synergy. My novel approach to D&I is to provide real world, no-nonsense practices from my experience as a woman executive in corporate America to those that feel the workplace is stacked against them. Let my pain be their gain by decoding the unwritten playbook and providing insights and practices that create hope and inside out confidence to unapologetically own their place at the table and in any boardroom.

With an engaging culture and powerful players, you score big with optimized outcomes, a stronger bottom line and win minds and hearts. You’ll be loved by your customers and feared by your competition.

With me, you always get the “A” team and senior partner. My caring candor, unique approach, proven framework and experiences have helped countless individuals and organizations achieve new levels of engagement, results and success! I am their game-changer.
