Purpose-Driven Training That Supports Leadership & Professional Development

In the course of my journey, I’ve often been the only person who looks like me in the room. As such, I’ve had an entree to spaces and perspectives that others from the groups I represent cannot always easily access. And now, I’m on a mission to share those insights with others through my coaching, books and speaking engagements. Let's talk about how I can put together a workshop or training for your company or organization.

Why I love to guest lecture, speak and present workshops...

"I truly appreciated our time together in class today. The information was so practical and the activities were engaging and eye-opening. Thank you again!"

"You go to a lot of these (workshops) and you hear a lot of the same things. And (today) I didn't hear a lot of the same things."

"Liz! You rocked the house with your vivacious and dynamic presentation on how to say NO without REGRET, FEAR, or APOLOGY! Thank you for giving me “permission” to practice my assertive voice and to simply do what appears to be my flow & purpose!"

"Remember the self care accountability group you helped us to form during your workshop? We’re still meeting 5 months later. It’s been great!"

I absolutely loved the workshop and look forward to incorporating tools and suggestions from you right away!!!

What a wonderful job you did and your book is fire. Thank you.
