Welcome!  I’m Maryanne Honeycutt Elliott, and founder of The Acorn Group. We work with teams, leaders and individuals who want break-through results through conversational, relational and emotional competence.

We get paid to have conversations. Effective conversations are the key to productivity, teamwork, culture, accountability and leadership. We use a transformational approach to communication to build better conversations, better relationships and get results.
