Linda (Elle) Yaven
At EllevateYou, my boutique talent lab, I partner with people in complex business environments to provide actionable insights on individual & team strengths. Mindful communication & well-being is at the core of my original method.

In addition to coaching people at IDEO, Google, Pixar, Allianz, Propelland, Oru Kayak, Nature Conservancy, Full Circle Fund, Linked-In and Teall Capital, I'm also an Associate Professor at California College of the Arts' own ground-breaking Masters of Business in Design Strategy. I teach "Live Exchange: Mindful Communication" & "Leadership Lab".

I am particularly honored to have served as Advisor/Documenter for The Making Learning Visible Institute at Harvard & consulted to the Education Branch of the Department of Defense on "360 Meaningful Critique". Some days you can find me coaching music bands on team strengths in business.

Finally, as a long time meditator, and painter, I like appreciating the extraordinary in the ordinary each day.
