  • Within the newly developed regional leadership program for SE-Asia & Oceana, Mrs. Elif Malmqvist (Elif) who represented the company of Taletum EQ, coached the part of Emotional Intelligence during the pilot roll out here in Singapore in November 2018. This regional leadership program is aligned for Atlas Copco Middle Management across all Business areas, Divisions and functions. Within this program segment, Elif guided the participants through the pre-preparation, on-line assessment, personal feedback and class room training of the Emotional Intelligence coaching. For Atlas Copco, Elif came into this regional leadership training program with a history of involvement in several SE-Asian countries on individual Emotional Intelligence programs. In responds to the execution of our program, I must say that we had nothing but exceptionally and highly performing coaching experiences with Elif. Great communication skills and the ability to work with her. The Atlas Copco regional leadership program for SE-Asia & Oceania will include Elif in the 2019 program for Sydney, Australia and Bangkok, Thailand as well. I feel very comfortable recommending Elif and the Emotional Intelligence Program to future leadership programs and if needed I would provide additional information, please do not hesitate to ask.

  • It is my great pleasure to recommend Elif Malmqvist with her company Talentum EQ Consulting as a highly professional Executive Search Entity and in particular Elif as an outstanding individual in that realm of Business. I have been in close touch with Elif over a period of several months from the 2nd half of 2016 onwards as a mandate candidate for a high level placement. Elif’s work ethic and conduct has consistently impressed me; moreover her very professional demeanor, effectiveness, communication skills and reliability makes her stand out greatly from the multitude of other executive search companies I have personally encountered over the past years. I want to further remark that she constantly demonstrated these qualities at a high and consistent level. Apart from those characteristics she is eternally upbeat and dedicated to her client without parallel and on top possesses the trait of having great empathy. I heartily endorse Elif Malmqvist for any services within the Executive Search Industry. I am utmost convinced that she will serve other candidates with the same level of ambition, dedication and professionalism which makes her a very precious asset in that line of business. I am happy to furnish more details in case additional information is requested.

  • Elif stands out among the recruiters with whom I have worked. She successfully holds both the interest of the company and that of the candidate in her mind at all times. The result is the right candidate for the right job. Even more important, Elif is extremely professional and passionate about her work. She is always striving to serve her client in the most effective manner possible. She is conscientious about her work and is very protective of the confidences entrusted to her. Elif takes the time to understand the needs of her clients. Always looking for the correct fit, she never attempts to “shoe horn” a candidate into a position. She has a relentless work ethic and is extremely trustworthy. Elif has earned my deepest respect and my highest recommendation.

  • Elif recommended me to do a EQ assessment when I was in a phase of my career where I couldn’t see any way forward.. This opened my eyes on certain points where I had never really understood the feedback I have got earlier. She gave me feedback and couched me how to work with it. This helped me to find the future direction in my professional life and to get a promotion which I am very happy with today.

  • I am writing this mail to thank you for the contribution to the Marine Department that saw tremendous change in attitude and work relationship, in a positive way.
    We started the newly created, focused department with rough patches. Gathering people to set up the new department, we encountered many obstacles such as uncertainty of the business, trust amongst each other and working relationship. The individual assessments done provided a platform to look into areas with room for improvement. With your guidance provided, training and workshop conducted, we saw the Marine Department transformed into a strong, business minded, cooperative and jovial team. You have helped to open up everyone’s mind, enhancing relationship within the department. To date, Marine businesses grow more than one-fold. We expect the synergy within the department to continue and businesses to grow to the next height.
    Once again, thank you for your professional advices, interaction sessions and guidance.

  • Thank you so much to you! It is such a blessing to have had the opportunity to be a part of this & to have that 1-on-1 session with you got me thinking a lot more about my own strengths, weaknesses and how often I can be too self-critical and downplay my own strengths whilst allowing myself to over-think my own weaknesses. You are such a fantastic soul !!! You are such an inspiration to me and I hope that one day, I will be able to achieve the right balance in developing my own leadership style.
