About Liz Williams, MA, MT-BC

+++ I love supporting non-profit EDs +++

I coach non-profit EDs and their staff.  I work with their Boards to help them understand and fulfill their governance role without micromanaging their ED.  

The non-profit ED role is unique, and uniquely demanding.  I’m an expert in effective meetings and teamwork, and in what is necessary for an organization to thrive.  This includes what you can stop doing.

I’ve spent my career learning how to support leaders of all kinds.  I’ve spent even more time learning what makes meetings effective, and how teams grow and strengthen.


  • I’ve coached healthcare teams in hospitals and care centers like Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford
  • I’ve led multi-year organizational change projects also at Packard
  • I’ve facilitated meetings of IT leaders, physicians, nurses, Non-profit EDs and their staff.
  • I’ve designed and run leadership development workshops on many subject.
  • I’ve designed and run peer groups of internal consultants, providing content and leading exercises and discussions.
