“I hired Elizabeth to lead a series of virtual workshops for our global Women @ Clarivate initiative. Her presence and program not only helped our employees connect across regions and departments, it helped people see that they have control—they can become happier and more fulfilled in their current jobs. Her questions got people’s juices running and really expanded their minds. She also created a format that is actionable, concrete, and sticks in people’s heads. I would recommend her and her work to anyone who wants to increase employee engagement and satisfaction, especially in these disconnected times.”

From Imposter Complex to Confident Leader

This workshop empowers newly-promoted executives, managers, and talented freelancers to navigate the discomfort and avoid the pitfalls of learning on the job.

Participants learn a repeatable process to transcend the voice in their heads that says they can’t succeed. They discover how to lead from inspiration as well as expertise and experience, and they walk away with a personalized action plan to kickstart their confidence journey.

What Kind of Courageous Creator Are You?

This workshop guides team members and colleagues to step out of their professional silos and connect with each other more deeply at work.

After completing a short self-assessment to discover their strengths and potential weaknesses, participants share their insights and personal stories with each other. They get to know each other in meaningful ways, find common ground, and forge social bonds that last well beyond happy hour.

in Your Work

This two-part workshop increases employee engagement and job satisfaction while fostering trust and connection between team members, peers, and supervisors.

Participants uncover the type of activities, habits, and thought patterns that bring them satisfaction and meaning in the work they do. After identifying their professional desires and strengths, they pinpoint specific mindset changes they can implement to feel more fulfilled at work.

“Elizabeth combines a warm and generous presentation style with expertise in how creative people can flourish and avoid self-sabotage. Her structured talks provide direct guidance and concrete steps to follow, but also allow a conversation to naturally develop or even go in an unexpected direction. And she’s great at handling student questions. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again on any type of online event or in-person conference.”
