More About Liz…

One of Dr. Berney’s specific areas of interest and expertise is the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and the ways in which it can be applied to leadership, teams and organizational change.

She has also published two books, one with Warren Bennis and Jim Rohn, “Yes You Can: Reaching Your Potential While Achieving Greatness” and one with Lauren Mackler entitled ”Freeing GODIVA: A Woman’s Journey to Self Empowerment”.  In 2016, she won Top Speakers for 2016 (from Speakers Platform) and in 2012 (along with Stephen Covey), she won Top 5 Speakers on Leadership and Teams.

Testimonials 3

  • Liz Berney is definitely a speaker/trainer for our times. In her address to the entire national leadership of NCSHA, she energized the audience, helped them reexamine their role in leadership, teamwork, and office dynamics in today’s fast-paced society.…With Liz’s keen insight and funny, fast-paced delivery, the time sped by. Liz Berney is one of those speakers who can make you laugh, make you cry, but most of all, make you want to be better at what you do.

  • It is my observation that Dr. Berney is high energy, humorous, and entertaining as well. She has an excellent ability to ‘read’ her audience and engage their interests and enthusiasm and be responsible to their needs. Dr. Berney’s personality is such that people are drawn to her warmth and vivaciousness. I can honestly say that the success of the Mentoring Program at NIST is due in large part to Dr. Berney’s presentation skills.

  • Liz is an engaging and entertaining trainer and speaker, and more importantly, she is extremely knowledgeable in her field. We received positive comments from every staff member about her sessions. I think it is most revealing however, that our staff continues to reference points/comments/suggestions that Liz made during her sessions over a year after her sessions.
