Liz is the founder of the popular Successful-Blog, and also of GeniusShared, an organization dedicated to promoting achievement in the business community through understanding of how personal development fuels, defines, and limits (or amplifies) success. She is also the founder of SOBCon, the game-changing business retreat that energized business growth from 2007 to 2013, and author of Anything You Put Your Mind To.
Liz Strauss is an engaging, intelligent, and profoundly relevant author, speaker, retreat producer, and business coach. She is adept at distilling complex (and seemingly disconnected) human business ideas into elegantly simple concepts and helping leaders apply those concepts to the best steps to meet their goals. Liz speaks softly and carries a lot of street cred. The Dean of the College of Education at Bradley University described Liz by saying, “In my life, I’ve met five master teachers. She is one.” Liz has worked with C-Suite executives on four continents on planning strategy and accelerating business growth through better hiring, breaking down silos, team training, and coaching new managers. Liz builds communities of fiercely loyal employees and customers who bring their friends.
Liz lives in Chicago, Illinois with her husband and a world of ideas and stories inside her head. In between trips to see every country in the world, their son stops in for visits to check on the stuffed penguin on the bookcase.
