Beth Planzer MontanusBoard Certified Coach
Having the discipline of a clinical counselor and expertise of a board certified executive coach, Beth Planzer Montanus approaches her coaching practice from a unique perspective, yielding powerful results for her clients.
With nearly two decades of experience as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Beth has a deep understanding of the pressures present in today’s business environment. Through increased emotional intelligence, strong leadership and improved communication skills, professionals attain success at work while maintaining a healthy balance at work and in life. This passion was a key driver in her transition from counseling to full-time executive coaching.
“Clients come to me with challenges at work - demanding positions, stressful situations, strained relationships and unhappiness at work. I've found the combination of my background in clinical counseling and executive coaching accelerates a leader's ability to achieve success, both personally and professionally."
Beth has coached professionals at all levels, including senior executives, managers and young professionals, across a variety of industries.
"I had reached a point in my career when I felt like my job was driving me, instead of me driving the job. As a result, I had lost focus and productivity and stress seemed ever present. Beth helped me to prioritize my work life and locate the positive aspects of my career and after doing so she then helped me focus on how to maximize the positive aspects. This has helped me create a much better work life balance, as well as helping me to derive more satisfaction and productivity out of my work. I am very appreciative of Beth’s solid advice and coaching and would recommend her to any busy professional or executive who is trying to regain their edge and improve their enjoyment of work and life."
