efactor consulting is designed for professionals who want to improve how they come across to others, how they interact with others, and how they influence others.  Rising leaders, established leaders, and business developers will recognize substantial benefits by learning how to master these skills. 

mastering storytelling

I teach professionals how to master storytelling by identifying, crafting, and delivering stories that truly resonate.

Storytelling is the best way to indelibly share our ideas and services. The right story helps the listener visualize and remember our message. Tying the story to compelling images makes it infinitely more powerful. Sharing the right story also builds trust and forges a deeper connection between the storyteller and the listener.

exuding confidence

To be perceived as competent, we need to project confidence. Confidence is the key to getting our ideas heard, earning respect, and successfully leading others. Our body language, vocal signals, and use of unnecessary fillers greatly influence someone's impression of us. 


I work with professionals to increase their awareness of the verbal and nonverbal messages they may be sending. 


I then arm clients with customized tools to improve their confidence in front of others and the confidence of others in them.

modeling empathy

Empathy is the key to building trusted relationships. 


I work with leaders to improve their emotional intelligence, with a particular emphasis on modeling empathy. 


We will discuss specific ways to respond in words and actions to convey empathy. When we are better at understanding our clients' and colleagues’ perspective, we build stronger and more trusted partnerships.

Director of Talent Development

The level of mastery Ellyn brings to the craft of storytelling is something to experience directly. Her sessions build from the basics to more complex approaches with each student showing unbelievable growth in the process. Her ability to give real time feedback that is both spot on and practical enabled our leaders to make the necessary changes in their approach to maximize learning and ultimately impact.


She is a true professional in her personal approach and the way her teaching style brings out the best in her students. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
