Liz Benson is a Certified Executive Life Coach, an Enhanced C-IQ Skills Practitioner, a member of the International Coaching Federation and a member of the Center for Executive Coaching. She has been a professional oil painter for over 25 years and loves the calming effect that being out in nature has on her.  She enjoys hiking and kayaking and long walks on the beach whenever possible.

Liz sees “goals” as linear, like a pass or fail. On the other hand, “Aspirations” breathe hope into fear and allow you to dream beyond your wildest imaginations creating a roadmap for setting goals and strategies to fulfill those dreams.

She’s passionate about supporting and working with individuals and organizations to find clarity, quell fears, and create high levels of communication that generate healthy innovating cultures that thrive in today’s ever-changing markets.

Elizabeth is passionate about coaching and advising clients to achieve amazing results and goes beyond expectations with clients to deliver amazing improvements in performance. At her seminars, people often have life-changing experiences. She is especially skilled at coaching creative professionals who are blocked to get unblocked, along with coaching people to improve their speaking and presentations, and coaching start-up entrepreneurs to get traction and success in their business. When you work with her, you will find an advocate who cares deeply about your success and works extremely hard to help you achieve your most noble and inspiring aspirations. I am happy to recommend her to anyone seeking new levels of performance and creativity.

I recently worked with Elizabeth on a team building project. Her ability to keep the team focused while providing alternate possibilities anchored the project which ended in success. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Her ability to coach others one on one or in a group setting is top-notch. I feel comfortable recommending Elizabeth to others searching for high-quality coaching and consulting.

The first time I truly understood the value of executive coaching, I was working with Liz Benson. Everyone talks about having a lightbulb moment- when something that you already knew comes into focus. Liz has helped me and many others have those lightbulb moments. Her questions are insightful and challenging and her enthusiasm is contagious. I highly recommend Liz as a coach and look forward to working with her further myself!
