I’m Liz Sumner
If you’re not making the kind of progress you want toward your goals I can help.
I’ve been a coach since 2002, before that I got my Masters in Change Management. When I started coaching I helped women in career transition, but I moved into what I call Progress Coaching because I feel a special affinity with people who have trouble getting things done and can’t always get out of their own way.
I understand Resistance. When I was a child my father used to call me “The Rock” because I could not be moved. We Resisters are wired in such a way that “I don’t want to you can’t make me” is our default position– even when we know it’s detrimental. We have to find our own motivation.
One of my core values is freedom. I do things my own way and tend to ignore what others tell me to do . When I’m given instructions, I pay attention to those that make sense to me and put my own spin on what’s left. This discernment comes through in my approach to coaching. I’m unwilling to be authoritarian and prescriptive. I help you find YOUR way to move forward.
I also have an uncanny ability to see the world from multiple perspectives and uncover options where others don’t see them. I’m a big fan of choice. If too much freedom makes you uncomfortable, I can show you how to determine what’s most important and feel confident in your decisions.
I have found my through the muck of procrastination and intransigence
and now I help others to overcome their inclination to be slugs. You can trust that I have a deep understanding of what that means.
“I’m so glad I had an opportunity to work with Liz Sumner! I watched her ME-time video training and, after doing the exercises, already got some benefits. It wasn’t until we spoke in person (over Skype) that her passion and energy came through and inspired me! Her feedback was invaluable in helping me clear the cogs that were jamming productivity in my business. Highly recommend!“
“Liz has a way of being that is very grounding, and she also has this innate ability to excavate your core values as well as to extricate the blocks that are holding you back. She gently guides you toward achieving your goals in a way that makes sense for you. Her work is nothing short of the perfect blending of the practical mixed in with sheer magic. Thank you, Liz!“
