Liz Van Vliet

Liz Van Vliet is a certified Executive Coach and qualified Corporate Trainer. She specialises in

equipping Office Professionals with career-boosting confidence and POWER Skills. This is how

Liz describes the “anything but ‘soft’ skills on steroids” that enable your staff to be what she

describes as “the little hinges that swing big doors” and show up as Linchpins.

Liz has over 25 years of senior Sales and Marketing expertise with blue chip organisations such

as IBM as well as a range of Software As A Service (SAAS) providers where she developed and

honed her own POWER skills. As a coach and trainer she has worked with some of Australia’s

leading organisations to develop their office professionals.

Through her training, coaching and mentoring, Liz metaphorically applies the oil so that these

little hinges can actually swing big doors, delivering the outputs and outcomes their manager

and team require. Liz has identified the POWER Skills that propel your staff to be linchpins and

through individual and stakeholder engagement is able to make an assessment of where to start

developing the competency and capacity of your office professionals.

Liz believes that all staff have the opportunity to lead from where they are and that empowering

them through skills development to do this more effectively can have a profound impact on an

organisation. Your office professionals are the people in your organisation that need to be

effective, not just efficient. Developing their POWER Skills is how to achieve this outcome.

Office professionals that are linchpins or are perceived as indispensable are just as deserving of

professional development in this area as other middle and senior managers in an organisation.

Liz considers it a privilege to fill this gap.
