Elise Foster is a leadership coach who enables education and industry leaders to tap into capability and unlock potential inside their organizations. She has conducted significant research in the field of leadership within education systems and is coauthor of The Multiplier Effect: Tapping the Genius Inside Our Schools. She has a deep passion for helping leaders become better equipped to navigate the increasingly complex demands of work and life. She works with leaders to make lasting change, by uncovering and making sense of the underlying beliefs preventing them from fully realizing their personal leadership vision. She has found that often, if not always, curiosity and the art of asking questions are central to making progress in the areas of leadership, innovation, and change. Elise has had the privilege of sharing the research and ideas behind multiplier leadership with school leaders at national conferences, such as the conference of the National Association of Elementary School Principals; local districts, including Gwinnett County Public Schools and Chicago Public Schools; and universities, including the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Arizona State University. When she is not working with education or industry leaders, she delights in learning alongside her school-age daughter and her daughter's classmates as a classroom volunteer and Girl Scout leader. She has taught and coached students at Indiana University (Kelley School of Business) and as a management fellow at Harvard University. She holds bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering from Virginia Tech and a master's in education from Harvard University.
