Linda (Elle) Yaven

interpersonal Architect

As a coach I am honored to see clients flourish by caring for themselves, their teams & community as generative communicators. My minds-on/hands-on/hearts-on coaching aligns business strategy with a spirit of mindfulness for practical outcomes & well-being in action.

I offer highly individualized ways to bring out your best & the best in others.

I've rolled up my sleeves coaching diverse talent at IDEO, Google, Pixar, Allianz, Propelland, Oru Kayak, Nature Conservancy, Full Circle Fund, de Young Museum, Teall Sports & Entertainment, OKCOIN, Kreatives, Strong Brew, Iron Creative. Linked-In & Stanford University.

I've served as an Advisor/Documenter for The Making Learning Visible Institute at Harvard & consulted for The Department of Defense's Education Branch on Meaningful Feedback: Yaven 360.

As part of California College of the Art's MBA program, I teach generative communication & leadership

My decades long meditation practice informs my coaching style. Yaven is my last name: in Star Wars, the rebel base is on the fourth moon of the planet Yaven!

Some days you can find me coaching music bands on interpersonal dynamics in business.
