About Eliciting Excellence

Eliciting Excellence, headquartered in Portland, OR, USA, is passionate about helping successors become more effective and companies achieve greater success.   We’ve been providing executive coaching and leadership development for over 20 years.   As a consequence, we bring our clients advantages that most other firms can’t provide.  Our years of experience allow us to bring more meaningful insights and perspectives to the conversation.  In addition, we have years of real-world business experience as executives and owners.  Our business-savvy coaches can better guide successors than coaches who simply have good coaching skills.
