Specialists in Team Transformations

A group faces a task. The extroverts quickly take the lead and the majority go along with it. Some question the direction but say nothing. A few believe it all and do not participate. Recognizable?

Many groups have a dynamic that excludes people, demotivates them and is at the expense of job satisfaction and results. Fortunately it can be done differently.

Awareness in Business transforms any group of individuals into a self-aware team. The diversity of talents and characters are the driving force. Such a team lives the mission and core values and everyone's input is valued. People flourish so that their full potential is utilized. Teams become closer, more energetic, deliver more quality and develop better.

More aware teams, better results.

"I would like to share my sincere recommendation for the 'Personal Leadership and Effective Communication' course I recently took. This course has had a profound effect on my personal and professional development. The focused content, combined with engaging interactions and practical exercises, has significantly increased my understanding of leadership. The trainer Ella not only imparted valuable knowledge, but also managed to create a stimulating and supportive learning environment. What sets this course apart is the emphasis on self-reflection and practical applicability. The tools and strategies provided are directly applicable in my daily life, both professionally and personally. In short, I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to strengthen their leadership skills and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and others."

"We have been working with Ella for several years now, during which she has provided us with excellent support on various facets. Basically, the first issue was bringing the MT more together, where she has been coach for all of us and it has definitely paid off. In addition, she has become a permanent support in the area of general coaching, but also as a sparring partner for management and HR and, meanwhile, co-designer of our internal 'core values project', in which we want to bring about 'viral change' from within. In the various issues that have come up in the meantime, it is central that Ella immerses herself in the issue, company, preconditions but also theoretical backgrounds and thus always provides us with good advice in a pleasant way."

" 'Action Learning' is an approach that allows you to take responsibility and solve problems by using your own innovative power. The trainings were very relevant and to the point to address current problems together. We listen more to each other and now work better together. In the end, the team program resulted in higher quality and saved a lot of time and money."

"Ella is a dear coach thanks to three wonderful qualities: she listens without judging, is confrontational and encouraging at the same time AND combines her intuition with proven independent methods such as disc. It is a gift to have her as a mirror when developing your career.''

"Ella supported our firm a couple of years ago through a leadership training. I was part of this training and really enjoyed it, while significantly benefiting from the various learning points. This training has shifted my perception on my career, refocusing my energy to the right places to support my career aspirations while making sure I managed my family life at its best. I can definitely say that the experience of this training with Ella has significantly supported my growth over the past 2 years both personally and professionally. It was a pleasure Ella and hope to interact with you on future trainings!"

"Ella was one of the instructors at a personal leadership training provided by my employer. I was so impressed with her knowledge, skills as coach, trainer, and personality that I decided to ask her to continue coaching me after the training ended. Ella has mastered a great balance between providing a client with advice, insights and information and letting the client figure things out themselves. This has helped me in identifying and utilizing my strongest personal traits and determining which route to choose in my career, so I can be at my best while really enjoying my work."

"Ella Taal did a multi-day training session with the management team of the Oyster Bay Beach Resort. All managers had to complete an online personal communication style self-assessment. Ella did personal interviews with each manager. We then did one on one training with the management team. This training was awesome for our team building exercise. Would highly recommend this for any company wishing to empower their management team. This was simply amazing."

"What we have achieved, besides a lot of side benefits, is that we have become very aware of our personal needs. We have learned and experienced that these needs are non-negotiable; and along with our talents are very important for setting and achieving our personal goals. But most of all, I am very pleased with the genuine friendship that can develop between a man of 18 in 5 days. It is an experience I would not have wanted to miss. I am happy and proud to have been a participant .''

"The conversations with Ella during my coaching process were pleasant. Ella creates an open and personal atmosphere where there is no judgement. This way I was able to present to her everything I wanted. Ella gave me insights, especially by asking the right questions and through the DISC model we had the conversations. I was always able to apply the advice at the time and I still do. It is advice I can always apply at any time in any situation. I would definitely recommend her as a coach!"

"Ella is a consummate professional who is very driven to maximize her clients' growth. Hiring her takes guts because she holds up a mirror to everyone and makes no bones about it. But always with respect and that makes her add value in a shorter period of time than others. In short, she is worth the investment, you or your company are worth the investment. Don't procrastinate, do it! 👍"

Ella about retreats

Retreats for Teams & Entrepreneurs

Leadership in this day and age demands an enormous amount from you. Whether you are a DGA, CEO, (senior) manager or (senior) professional. Your agenda is bulging, you have to constantly switch between your strategic responsibilities and practical problem solving. Moreover, the appeal to personal leadership has increased enormously in recent years. Just providing structure and direction is no longer enough, you also have to personally commit to goals and especially to people. The challenges you face put a strain on your flexibility, private work balance and energy management. 

Awareness in Business also offers private Team Retreats especially for executive teams, management teams and BoDs. The Retreats are held at Villa Major in Mallorca and can be realized on request. Exactly what your team is looking for? Contact us to discuss the possibilities.
