Thank you Beth Wonson for all of your support, guidance and wisdom. I am a better leader because of your workshops and tools and am so excited to be able to learn even more! If you or your organization needs someone to help you navigate through an un-clear time or needs tools to grow Beth is your answer.

Steve Culberson, Delta Stewardship Council

Thanks for facilitating our training last month at the Delta Stewardship Council. I wanted to pass along an observation that several of us made following the training you might enjoy:

The environment you fostered for having difficult discussions as part of our exploration of emotional intelligence and learning emotional leadership skills was well-received and demonstrated during the day. We explored a couple of issues that were emotionally and personally charged, and the effect of dealing with it together was heart-warming and successful. Kudos to you for providing a place where we could explore difficult issues as a group and come out of the experience successfully and with a workable solution.

Andrew DeFranza, Executive Director, Harbor Light Community Partners

“Beth Wonson came to us in a time where as a non profit we needed to evaluate ourselves and our direction as we took another step of growth and change.  She is a professional who quickly understood our issues and dynamics. She is skillful with facilitation, evaluation, and team building.  Beth Wonson helped us work through challenges at a critical moment in an effective way such that we are on a better path to meet our mission. I was utterly skeptical at the beginning and by the end I was entirely grateful.”

Shannon Seifert CEO of the Santa Maria Valley YMCA

Beth Wonson Consulting conducted an amazing 2 day core staff training for 9 of our YMCA staff last year.  Our purpose was both to solidify our team, define our leadership styles and to work through some challenges we’d had the first part of 2014. Not only was her approach with all of us diverse and useful, it was FUN!  Beth kept us riveted, active, engaged and her methods were delightfully non-predictable. So many of us go through training after training that her style was a breath of fresh (and highly useful!) air.

In addition to her 2 day services, Beth spend quite a bit of preliminary time at our core staff meetings getting to know us and identify our dynamics to better prepare for our 2 day investment.  She also offered follow up services, both as a group and open to us individually. We were pleased to take advantage of all of the above. As CEO of the Santa Maria Valley YMCA, I highly recommend Beth Wonson Consulting Services.

Stewart Morse, Softec Board President

"After 18 years of being a nonprofit providing networking and educational events for members who work in technology, Softec was feeling growing pains and needed direction and coaching to take it to its next level. Softec’s Board needed to strategize and get focused on our true mission and how to deliver that vision to its members and the community.

Beth uncovered our mission, which didn't need to be changed, but we had lost our way. With a strengthened sense of who we were, we were able to focus on building a new operational foundation.

Beth has a gift to see into an organization and pull out what is not easily seen, and then coalesce the people around it to make the organization healthier."

Katana Abbott, CFP®, CSA

Two weeks ago, I had a coaching session with Beth Wonson, and during that hour with her, I was able to break through some pretty huge blocks that have been holding me back from launching a business project that has been on the back burner since 2005.  She took me through the process of breaking out the steps and looking at the numbers.  Even though this is what I do for others, I needed to go through this process with someone who had a fresh persective.  I've always said, "Every successful coach has their own coach.  You cannot coach yourself!"  I am so grateful to have found Beth.  Since our session, I have been hired for a paid speaking engagement for this project, which has created a deadline for updating the website, workshop and even finishing my book on this topic.  Beth is the real deal.  She is down to earth and has terrific intuition and wisdom!
