ABOUT THE ECSELL
Our mission is to bring together a community of the most cutting-edge leaders who are committed to furthering their coaching journey and who will support each other along the way.
This leadership conference is unique in that it utilizes multiple learning methods from both experts and peers alike to give attendees a complete developmental experience.
Our focus at this year’s Summit is uncovering success in places we may not have thought to look, and in ways we may not be familiar with. Here’s what to expect when you join us at the beautiful Thompson Hotel in Austin:
- Formal and informal learning opportunities lead by experts in a myriad of learning formats
- A customized schedule based on your unique coaching needs
- Yoga, cocktail parties, delicious dinners… in a word: FUN!

The Ecsell Together Summit is an exclusive event for our clients and partners. If you’d like to inquire about attendance but are not an Ecsell client, please reach out to an Ecsell team member. We suggest that senior leaders attend along with the leaders who report to them to create a cohesive culture of high performance within their teams.
Ecsell Institute has hosted the Coaching Effect Summit since 2008. After years of virtual meetings and many shifts in how the workforce operates, we took a hard look at our data to determine how our clients’ needs have evolved. This new event, the Ecsell Together Summit, is designed to directly meet these new needs. Our mission is to bring together a community of cutting-edge leaders who are committed to furthering their coaching journey and who will support each other along the way.
When information is taken in through lecture or keynote, research shows it will yield an estimated 5% retention. When information is learned through demonstration, discussion, or action, the retention can range from 50-90%. What you learn at the Ecsell Together Summit is only as good as what changes you put into practice after you return home, so the majority of our sessions focus on interactive and participatory learning techniques.
We’ll share our empirical research in creative ways targeted at helping you not just learn theory, but take action in real time to apply what you’ve learned. There will be expert-led sessions focused on problem-solving, mindfulness, tactical improvements of the 6 coaching themes, the Growth Rings, and more.
Ecsell Institute research shows that the top 20% of coaches are responsible for bringing in an average of $4.3 million more per leader per year, compared to the bottom 80%.
The Ecsell Together Summit is designed to ensure all attendees are in the top 20%. The curriculum is built on our in-depth research and allows for leaders to customize their schedule based on their specific coaching challenges and opportunities.
Additionally, our research shows that team members who have access to educational opportunities in their roles are:
- Rated 17% higher than other leaders
- 14% happier with their jobs
- Save a 12% higher retention rate
Both! In fact, we have a lot of research on the importance of “fun.” Our data shows that one of the key skills required to be a successful leader is the ability to make work fun. Therefore, the dinners and outings are just as critical to your coaching journey as the formal learning – it’s what allows you to be able to perform your best.

AUSTIN THOMPSON HOTEL
A place for locals and visitors to let loose poolside or at our restaurants and bars, where the luxe, contemporary vibe is signature Thompson — bold but not showy, complex yet confidently relaxed. This untamed urban playground celebrates serious revelry from the moment you encounter the lobby’s airy atmosphere of light and shadow, offset by the bold geode-inspired architecture.
With dramatic Austin cityscape views on display, the residential feel of our accommodations creates a setting to refresh and get ready for anything. Check into rooms, suites or residences offering moody hues, gorgeous custom furnishings, floor-to-ceiling windows with roller shade window coverings, and elegant plank floors in a warm gray wood grain. The custom décor mixes midcentury modern with late-century luxury, resulting in elegant spaces that will make you take pause before heading back out into the city.
