Executive Leadership Skills International (ELSI) is a veteran - owned small business which specializes in consulting and training.

Typical interventions in the organization's processes, include, but are not limited to:

  • Organizational Assessment
  • Teambuilding

  • Conflict Resolution
  • Interpersonal Communications

We have provided leadership and management consulting and training services to over 5,000 managers, supervisors, and non-supervisory personnel. From strategic planning, executive and supervisory skill development, team building, conflict resolution, interpersonal communications, change management, problem-solving and decision-making, organizational assessments, and stress management, just to name a few of our specialties, there are few areas that we have not analyzed and empowered our clients to master.

Our philosophy is quite simple: we hire and retain only the best. As a prerequisite to joining our company, our Senior Associates all have supervised large staffs and had primary responsibility for projects and multi-million dollar budgets in organizations similar to our clients. Their hallmarks are compassion, creative and practical responsiveness to "real-world" problems, and a standard of excellence. We have worked extensively with both public and private sector organizations. Our reputation is largely a function of satisfied customers, with the great majority of our clients coming to us by referral.

Executive Leadership Skills International is committed to helping corporations, companies, teams, and individuals improve performance by creating a high-involvement culture.
