Canny Conversations Coaching

Have you noticed in your organisation:

  • hours are wasted in meetings?
  • low productivity?
  • people dread giving feedback?
  • they aren’t open and honest with each other?

You could be experiencing ‘Pleasanteeism’…

The pressure to put on a brave face is undermining any effort to create an open dialogue about issues that you and your people are facing in the workplace.

Have better conversations

These are just a few of the ways you could improve your business through better quality conversations.


Confidential advice and expertise on communication and the culture of your organisation. With practical steps for the recommended way forward.


Bespoke one-to-one or team training on how to manage others, develop relationships and have better conversations. 



Ideal for when you need someone independent to navigate an important conversation towards a specific goal or outcome.  



Workplace mediation focused on conflict resolution and relationship repair in a way that is a win-win for all. 

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion”
– Dale Carnegie

How it works

1. Needs Assessment

Our initial conversation will allow us to assess challenges your organisation is facing or prevent problems during organisational changes.

2. Recommend Solution

After understanding the challenges you’re facing we will recommend a solution, taking into account your budget, timescales and leadership involvement.

3. Better Conversations

Elaine will personally design and deliver her recommendations, reporting results and opening the possibilities of better communication in your organisation.

You are one conversation away…

Elaine Warwicker has experienced the effects of organisational culture and the quality of communication on business performance – both good and bad. 

With over 20 years of client-side experience in organisations like Chelsea Building Society, Ecotricity and Bristol Energy, Elaine has managed teams, stakeholders and shareholders at scale.  She has worked with the good, the bad and the ugly of communicators! 

So, in 2019, Elaine set up Canny Conversations to help improve organisations, leaders and teams through better quality conversations. 

Elaine is accredited in Workplace Mediation, First Aid for Mental Health, Everything DiSC® psychometric profiling and was the first person to be accredited to run the Diary Detox® – the innovative productivity and well-being habit. 

“Elaine designed and developed an Away Day for our board and senior team which challenged us to think more about our roles as leaders, to invest more in our relationships with each other and to reassess our impact on the wider team. Elaine is an extremely engaging facilitator – and the pace of the sessions, the whole day and breadth of content was absolutely spot on”

 – Nick Woodrow, Thinkproject UK

Stop having conversations that don’t move the business forward.

We will work together in an accessible, human and supportive way.

It will never be as bad as you think.

You won’t have to say anything you don’t want to.

I am always on your side.

If you let your relationships get past the point of rescue, your environment will become toxic and demotivating.

My promise is simple:

If you participate, you will get results.

Success is a choice…

You can choose to be

a less effective leader: 

Frustrated and overwhelmed from refereeing and negotiating with your people and focusing on short-term solutions. 

Or you can take one step to becoming a highly effective leader: 

Self-aware of your role in your relationships and how you can improve your business through better conversations.

Better conversations, better relationships, better business.
