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!
