When was Ellia Communications, Inc. founded?

In 2003, Founder Kathy Caprino first established Coaching for Positive Change, which was expanded and officially renamed Ellia Communications, Inc. in 2006.

What services does Ellia Communications, Inc. offer?

Ellia Communications is a leading women’s coaching and consulting organization offering coaching, seminars, workshops and resources that help working women achieve breakthrough from their obstacles to create the life and work they truly want.

What We Do:
Ellia Communications offers transformational career coaching, executive consulting, seminars, workshops, and resources for working women.

Our Mission:
To help professional women achieve the highest degree of happiness, success, and reward by overcoming challenge and creating a powerful breakthrough in how they live and work.

The Outcome:
Achieving breakthrough means overcoming your “power gaps” and the blocks that keep you from living and working as you want to, with great success. Breakthrough moves you forward to creating your unique life of passion, power, and purpose.

What is the philosophy behind Ellia Communications?

Ellia Communications is founded on one key desire – “to help working women achieve breakthrough to amazing success.”

For women today, there are numerous work-life challenges to contend with, and many feel overwhelmed and confused as to the “right” direction to pursue — personally and professionally.

Ellia Communications seeks to be part of the solution, by offering powerful transformation tools and strategies, helping women overcome blocks and challenges, evaluate potential avenues before them, and connect deeply to themselves and their own internal power and guidance. This reconnection fosters breakthrough. Challenges and limitations become more manageable, and once we achieve breakthrough, we move forward to a more expansive, fulfilling, and joyful way of living.

What is coaching?

As the ICF (www.coachfederation.org) explains, coaching is a professional service that involves “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives

Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.”Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.“

What sets Kathy and her company, Ellia Communications, apart from other programs and providers?

A nationally-recognized women’s work-life expert, Kathy Caprino truly “wrote the book” on professional women’s breakthrough. Her yearlong national research study on women overcoming professional crisis, and her work with hundreds of women each year, and her second national study on Women Succeeding Abundantly, has given her the opportunity to deeply understand the challenges working women face today, and the powerful strategies, actions, and beliefs that make breakthrough possible.  Her critically-acclaimed book Breakdown, Breakthrough: The Professional Woman’s Guide to Claiming a Life of Passion, Power, and Purpose breaks new ground for empowering women and moving them forward.

Ellia Communications goes beyond typical coaching programs and resources, may of which offer only outer tactics, to help women achieve important inner shifts thereby paving the way for more success.  Through Kathy’s high-level business experience, research, coaching and leadership training, and her personal experiences of overcoming disempowerment, she knows directly what breakthrough entails, and helps others achieve positive transformation and empowerment in their lives and work. Kathy has developed a new Guide for Empowered Living—complete with three holistic, essential steps for thriving in life and work– and uses this model as a foundational guide in her resources and programs. She has taken each of the coaching action steps she teaches in her own life, to great success.
