Not Your Typical Professional Development

Are you ready to transform your group of individuals into a high performing team?

Professional Certified Coaching

Take Your Blinders Off

Moving up in your company? Looking to hone your skills or develop new ones? Just need a sounding board who can give you objective feedback and help create insights? Our Certified Coaching services might be a good fit for you.

Our coaching program is designed to take stock of your hard-wired strengths and limitations, ask the hard questions to get you to break out of old ways of thinking, and work with you to execute small, nuanced changes which will lead to tremendous growth over time. We have all the bells and whistles of a traditional executive coaching program delivered in the unique style of Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and LeadQuine founder, Ellen Patnaude. This is six months of conversations whose impact you’ll never forget.Certified 

"Ellen has been my coach during my transition to a leadership position, where I am responsible for a team of 10 people. She guides me to identify, structure and address the gaps in my development as well as connect my leadership style to my team. I appreciate her open and honest approach as well as soft push & pull to get results without providing the ‘solution’ (easy way out) - that is something I have to come to on my own. We connect on a weekly basis which makes it easy to assess progress, address blocking points and identify together alternatives (solutions). Highly recommended."
Andreea, Director

Interactive Workshops

Not your typical team skill building

Is your team great at the technical parts of their job but struggling to work as effectively together as they could? Do your managers manage as confidently as they could? Do you simply want to invest in your team’s ongoing success and give everyone a little boost and chance to hone their skills? One of our highly-acclaimed facilitated workshops might be for you.

Using the AcuMax Index® as a baseline to understand how and why people act and react the way they do, each workshop takes a different perspective on ways you can advance team interactions and effectiveness. In addition to our “off the shelf” options, we specialize in creating custom workshops for our clients. Don’t see exactly what you’re looking for? Not a problem. We can probably create it for you. And if we can’t, we’ll tell you that, too.

"On behalf of the whole HCV Performance and Execution team, I want to thank you for the program you put together and facilitated for us. Every aspect of our time together was enlightening and engaging – and quite a bit of fun! You enabled us to learn so much more about us as a team, pushed our boundaries a bit but kept us (mostly) comfortable in doing so, and provided a forum in which we had the most amazing experience together. Your facilitation skills and personable approach were very effective in delivering this program. You took the positive experience you gave us last year to new and even more meaningful levels. Based on the feedback I have already heard – and my own reactions – I am confident that every one of us that participated walked away with a better sense of the value of our diversity and the comfort of our similarities. Thank you again for all your efforts to deliver this program!"

Learning from the Horses


Looking for something completely different? Try an unconventional and unforgettable experiential learning opportunity for small teams. By pairing humans with horses for a variety of facilitated activities, participants gain clear, immediate insights into which of their practices are effective, and which ones are not.

Feel your confidence and leadership grow in the course of the day. This is not therapy—we are not mental health professionals. There is no riding involved—only groundwork. The therapeutic benefits come from spending time with these gentle creatures who don’t care what your title is; they care how you lead them. Come immerse yourself in this amazing experience and see for yourself.

"LeadQuine facilitated a fun and interactive team building event with our ROWE shareholders. It was very informative and the hands-on activities with the animals reinforced the discussion points in innovative ways. The feedback we received from our ownership team was that it was one of the best exercises we've ever participated in as a group!"
