Executive, ADHD, & Career Coach

 

After a 17+ year legal career and certifications in ICF-accredited executive coaching, career coaching, and ADHD coaching, Elle O'Flaherty founded Interlace Solutions to help people get out of their ruts and learn new ways to use their strengths. Elle uses traditional coaching and practical career guidance, assessments, interactive 360 feedback, follow-on exercises, and resources to complement her practice.  She coaches professionals from c-suite executives to recent graduates with the unique experience of a former applicant, regular interview panelist, and federal hiring manager. Her single greatest advice from this experience is: don't wear a flannel shirt to an interview. She weaves humor into her coaching to put clients at ease while tackling tough issues.

 

Elle coaches executives, executive teams, and professionals. She coaches around leadership, productivity, workplace culture, prioritization, organization, and building upon ADHD strengths to overcome difficulties. She also coached on professional skills, performance improvement, strengthening teams, career pivots, stress reduction, and work/life balance, among many other areas. 

Elle lives in Washington, DC, and has a dog named Penny, who is the most beautiful dog in the world, obviously. And a great family, but the dog is hard to beat.
