How We Work


Frequently Asked Questions

  • Business Advisory and Assurance clients: Small or medium organisations, local or global that have to improve on their processes or on the way their teams work together in order to enhance performance. My contacts within an organisation are normally the owner/funder/CEO, CFO, the transformation leader and service delivery leaders.
  • Coaching You and/or Teams: Individuals who want to learn more about their strengths and how working on those can bring them better results. My coaching areas are mainly professionally focused, related to performance, career move, work-life balance, return to work, integration into a new cultural context and team coaching.
  • Elevating Internal Audit Impact: Internal Audit directors, managers who want to enhance IA visibility and enable internal audit professionals to perform at their best within the function.
  • A coach is a person who followed a structured coaching training.  Coaching is very much a non-directive relationship, driven by the coachees.
  • A mentor does not necessarily have specific training in mentorship, but had expertise and knowledge in the area of mentorship. A mentor advises based on their experience and knowledge and the relationship can be more directive and suggestive, driven more by the mentor.

Our first meeting is free of charge to get to know each other, understand what we want to achieve from our collaboration and how best we can collaborate. This meeting can take place via video call, or in person, if possible, depending on location.

For organisations the way we collaborate (meetings, workshops, interim engagement) will depend on the assignment.

For coaching clients, if we decide to go ahead after the first meeting and work together, I suggest to commit to a minimum of 6 coaching sessions; however this is not a must; and options are discussed depending on the client’s goals, situation, etc.

The meetings take place face to face where possible or online via Zoom or another online meeting tool which we can agree on; from Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 9:30am CET time and 2:30pm CET time; any other times can be agreed as needed.

My hourly fee will vary depending on the engagement. We will discuss this during our first meeting if an hourly rate or a package rate will be more appropriate for the collaboration.

To be open to change and own the actions we agree upon, as individuals and as an organisation.

Customer Reviews

My overall aim was to increase my self-confidence at work while I developed towards a more leadership focussed role.

Through our sessions and some fun reflection exercises, Elena Ralu has helped me think about my challenges in a new way. I now take time to focus on my strengths and have a more confident mindset, which has led me to feel more comfortable about taking on new responsibilities at work. Having Elena Ralu’s support was valuable to me during this process.

Joanna Hayes

Associate Director

I have achieved much more from our coaching relationship than I thought I would. Whenever I have something challenging on the horizon Elena Ralu is my first point of call to help me understand the situation and figure out my strategy. Elena’s coaching has made a very tangible difference to my career and the fulfilment I get from my work.
