“I have had the pleasure of experiencing Liz in several contexts: she has attended several Growth Skills’ conferences where I was a facilitator, she has attended several of the trainings I sponsor, and we have worked together where I have come in to lead trainings at her church. In that time I have seen Liz grow in her ability to lead process groups and experientials. She has both natural gifts of reading people and situations and has received extensive training to exercise her gifts. She is a learner; she is often the first to sign up for one of my trainings and has a teachable spirit. I love doing events with Liz. I have experienced first hand her high levels of competency in the areas of marketing and execution. Her events are the best run, most organized of all of my church engagements. From my experience of her, she runs on budget and executes strategically to implement the goals that are set.” – Dennis Del Valle, Senior TLP Director
“I have known Liz for many years and have had the pleasure of having her in my TLP group for three years. Liz is a self-starter who set her goals and achieved them. She, through her own learning and acquisition of skills, has implemented, in collaboration with her pastor and team at Harvest Church the wildly successful T-groups. Liz knows the competency and character model inside out. She has experienced it personally and teaches it regularly with precision and clarity. Liz, the biblical counseling and T-Group pastor at Harvest church, oversees the counseling and the T-groups at work. In addition, Liz and has a prior history of successful banking experience that encompassed all five competencies.” – Bobbi Blain, Clinical Professional Counselor
