Ellen E. Patnaude
Ellen Patnaude has always been fascinated by how a person’s nature and nurture combined causes them to interact with the people around them. She is a Detroit native and graduated from Alma College with a BA in Biology & French. She thought she wanted to be Jacques Cousteau, but her first few science-based jobs pointed clearly towards working with people. She worked for several years as a community organizer in Indiana and Ohio. Returning to Michigan in 2005, her reputation followed her for challenging people to see and be a better version of themselves, and the phone started ringing. Since then, Ellen has built an internationally recognized company supporting individuals and teams in improving everyday important interactions.
She recently published a new book, “I Thought You Knew… Confessions of a Chronic Assumer (and How to Stop Guessing your way through Important Interactions)”, available through your favorite online bookseller or on our book page.
Ellen is a credentialed PCC-level Executive Coach (from the International Coach Federation (ICF), and certified in multiple assessment tools, including the AcuMax Index®, MRG’s Leadership Effectiveness Analysis LEA360® and Leadership Culture® assessments, Genos International’s Emotional Intelligence toolkit, and Equine-Guided Learning practices from Innovative Horizons.
Ellen lives in mid-Michigan with her wife, Dani, at least one and as many as three teenagers at any given time, three cats, and a dog with way too much energy.
