Ildiko OraveczHigh Performance Consulting is owned by Ildikó Oravecz. Living under a name that translates to “fierce warrior” in Hungarian can send many messages to a young girl transitioning from a host of divergent cultures throughout her life. For Ildi, it meant that success best happens when it is not built alone. Through a fierce and colorful past that began in South Africa, followed by part of her life in Hungary and then tiny Socorro, New Mexico, Ildi’s greatest philosophies were to listen to your gut, build a culture you believe in, and maintain a posture that promotes further enrichment.


She now translates those life lessons into her Tribal Abundance™ program, where the concept of collaboration and connection is taught as a framework for ensuring success through interpersonal networks. She designed the program herself, basing the concepts on the anthropological research of Colin Turnbull, who studied two very different tribes and how their approaches to abundance and scarcity resulted in two very different mindsets, usage of resources, and consequences.


Not only does Ildi live by the tenets of paying it forward, but she has proven it to be a legitimate principle through a community network that has repaid her with rewarding civic and volunteer connections.  Ildi is an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) as well as a Certified Performance Technologist (CPT). She is the recipient of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) Award of Excellence for instructional design, and holds a Master’s degree in Organizational Learning and Instructional Technologies from the University of New Mexico.


Ildi’s gift back to the community is realized through several volunteer activities, including board positions and committee involvement on the New Mexico chapter of the International Coach Federation, and Polka Dot Powerhouse. When not coaching or consulting, she balances her life by spending time with her matched little sister, Kathleen, from Big Brothers Big Sisters. She also enjoys digging in her garden and enjoying life from her backyard patio, going for walks with her husband, and tending to two rescue dogs that watch her every move, and a wayward cat that lives on her front porch.

  • “Ildi is an extraordinarily talented, very bright and capable person. She is quick to complete tasks, and always anticipates what else is needed and does that too, FAST. I’ve found Ildi to be an extremely good judge of character, and she’s great at getting other people to perform to her high standards (and mine). Ildi is a person who can do anything she takes on, and do it well, and be charming while doing it. She’s the standard to which all providers of services should be held!”
