Hello and welcome! My name is Hellena Jones Elbling and I'm a D.I.V.A. No, not an opera singer or drama queen. D.I.V.A. stands for a Determined Individual who Values herself and her Assets!
My journey began like most - feeling stuck with no direction in sight. After working more than 20 years in the private and nonprofit sector, I was ready for something different. No...I needed something different! Something that would challenge me everyday and make me grow personally and professionally. Soon after that declaration, I discovered coaching and the Co-Active Training Institute (formerly The Coaches Training Institute) where I become a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach. I opened my coaching practice CORE Illuminations in 2006 and focused on helping women re-discover their D.I.V.A. and the unlimited possibilities awaiting them personally and professionally.
My number one lesson for you is this: "Until you kow what your strengths and values are no one else will." The success of this discovery begins from within - intergrating your core beliefs, communication/leadership skills and everyday actions to help you focus your time and energy on things that matter to you.
