Successful executives, creatives, and family leaders all know how to achieve, how to work hard and how to buckle down. So few of us know how to enjoy our success, how to take care of ourselves, how to get off the step we are stuck on and onto the next one we have been envisioning. I had heard about coaching for years but had never found the right person. I didn’t want a former teacher, therapist or a public speaker advising me, I wanted a successful entrepreneur, an equal, someone who wasn’t going to give me any fluff, and someone who had lived through the 80-hour high-level business work-week. Elizabeth was finally that person. She equipped me with the tools needed to function on a higher level in all areas of my life. She also showed me the importance of building your own tools to master the challenges our careers and lives will present us with. This isn’t just about getting your career on track. This is about getting yourself on track, and with that everything falls exactly in place. My experience with Elizabeth changed the course of not only my career, but my relationship with time and with myself.
I have worked with career coaches and other coaches before and never felt like I achieved anything. Since working with you, I have been more mindful of my needs as a person, I am better at defining boundaries, I am more likely to stick up for myself, and I have improved my relationships with the vast majority of my colleagues. Also, several new job opportunities have presented themselves! I felt a true lack of judgment and a lot of support and care throughout our work together. YOU ROCK.
Our members who attended Elizabeth’s three-part professional development series raved for months that they had more time to spend with friends and family and had a stronger grasp on their priorities. Step Up members loved the practicality of Elizabeth’s advice and tips. Each piece of wisdom could be implemented in the lives of everyone in the room. Elizabeth was incredibly engaging and struck the perfect balance between having a professional conversation while being entertaining and light-hearted. I would absolutely recommend Elizabeth’s services to anyone looking to make lasting changes in their lives. She is such a strong executive coach and teacher.
Elizabeth could not have come into our lives at a better time. My husband, an artist, and myself, a mother and freelancer, needed someone to ground our dreams and make them reality. Elizabeth was able to be everything we needed her to be: a compassionate listener, a fierce leader, and non-judgmental guide. Best of all, she was able to hold the space in such way that we felt extremely empowered after each session. The results were immediate and profound. I can’t recommend Elizabeth enough to artists and freelancers. By the end of our work with her, we truly became the authors of our lives, on the path to empowered success!
Elizabeth is one of our most popular presenters. After each program Elizabeth has done at NYCLA, she received rave reviews. I always count on her to provide valuable information and guidance based on real world experiences that never fail to resonate with the audience. She is a poised speaker, extremely generous with her practical advice and encourages a give and take with the audience. We look forward to having Elizabeth back at NYCLA for another program in the near future.
Elizabeth’s counseling and teaching abilities are of the highest caliber. Her varied professional experience furnishes her with well-informed, balanced insights on a wide variety of career paths. Elizabeth also takes care to learn the aspirations of each of her individual students and clients. While others peddle advice designed to be one-size-fits-all, Elizabeth provides support tailored to the individual needs of her advisees. Her assistance has been, and continues to be, central to my success.
Elizabeth is a caring, dynamic and passionate person. She is a person focused on not just ends, but means. She asks not only whether the goals are just and good and worthy, but whether the strategies and tactics utilized to reach those goals are honorable and worthy of the person employing them and of the ends sought. She seeks excellence in herself and surrounds herself with people who share that goal of excellence. She understands the importance and satisfaction of the examined life and understands, too, the dissatisfaction that comes with a career that doesn’t allow someone to further themselves, express their true selves or reach their creative peak. Not only that, she is a dogged, tenacious and enthusiastic supporter. If you want someone on your side who will lead you down a path to career fulfillment and satisfaction, contact Elizabeth.
Elizabeth is a woman who commands a room; she is self-assured, knowledgeable and unabashed about speaking her mind. Her true gift, however, is that, unlike many lawyers, she is equally proficient at shining the spotlight on others. She shares her expertise and experience without holding back, and this generosity is what draws others to her for advice, coaching and support. One would be just as comfortable sitting in a seminar and absorbing her advice as sitting in her office and sharing dreams, goals and ideas. Her work experience is wide-ranging enough to benefit lawyers at any stage of their career; she also has extensive contacts and is quick to connect people who may gain from knowing one another, whether professionally or personally. Elizabeth is accessible, insightful and thoughtful, as well as a consummate professional. Hire her, and let her lead you where you want to go.
I reaped enormous benefits from knowing and working with Elizabeth. She taught me how to be assertive but respectful, determined yet carefree, hard-working but balanced. Most importantly, Elizabeth showed me that even though the field of law is still heavily dominated by men, it is possible for female attorneys to have a voice and demand not only recognition but promotion without compromising their core values. I’m excited for all who will have the opportunity to work with Elizabeth.
Elizabeth’s example as an attorney, a mentor, and a woman is simply one of a kind. Elizabeth’s no-sugar-added mentoring left me with very real and applicable advice that I continue to use regularly.
Elizabeth was superb. Her dynamic talk was thought-provoking, cutting-edge, and engaged all of our members. She was the highlight of our event.
Elizabeth's talk was inspiring, smart and funny. She offered our audience a real chance to be vulnerable, face their challenges, and walk away with tools to improve their lives for good.
Thank you for making our event so amazing!! You were so real, so inspiring. We're getting endless positive feedback.
