Trainers and Coaches
Liz Calvert believes it is important to discover who you are, and what your purpose is, and where your joy is to be found, and how to ease your own and others pain. She feels we can only work our way through those hard questions with real courage. Focusing on your courage levels is critical — until you humbly investigate the roots of your own suffering and destructive patterns — you will just keep causing trouble, not only for yourself, but for others.
Liz is from London, and got her degree in Organisational Psychology in the UK. She worked in Retail management out of University with Marks and Spencer’s and then went on to be a Sales Director with Allied Dunbar – the Financial Services giant now called Zurich Life. This is where the training and development bug bit – and she trained many sales people who went on to be High Flyers of the company. After this she spent 4 years in Holland setting up a Mediation Training Company – to train Lawyers how to be Mediators. If Lawyers can become mediators change is possible for anyone who has the commitment to learn. Moving to Cape Town she gained a great deal of cross-cultural transformation experience when she worked with the Zulu and Xhosa students who were entering college life for the first time.
She also worked with the Afrikaans and English students at Stellenbosch University – and there she trained the Law student’s mediation skills. After so much change in South Africa with the ending of discrimination based on culture the innovation and the coaching of Entrepreneurs, Call Centres, Marketing Companies, Newspapers – she gained a great deal of expertise in a wide range of businesses.

The methodology was great, as was the personal way the outcomes were discussed. It was also good that most people opened up quite quickly during the session, providing a very convivial atmosphere.
“Before the workshop I thought I knew my strengths and talents – but I was not sure if I was using them correctly. During the workshop I saw that the combinations of your talents, strengths and values make you truly unique!. Realising this and making the most of your own element is the best thing you can do for yourself and your happiness. Getting a clear view on my element makes me fired up to move myself to the next level! Thank You Ariane and Liz so much for sharing your wisdom and nudging me to action, I am so looking forward to using my Element!!”
“I went to the workshop to find out how to use my strengths more in my design business. During the workshop I saw how valuable it would be to work with others who would also like to develop their strengths and the workshop met all my expectations. My next step is to look for collaborators who I can match my strengths with to move my business to the next level.”
