“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” ―
What is a life coach? A person who counsels and encourages clients on matters having to do with careers or personal challenges. It’s good to have a life before becoming a life coach; a sense of opportunistic timing and willingness to recreate oneself certainly helps.
What is transformational life coaching? According to Careers in Psychology, “Transformational coaching is similar to life coaching. It involves helping people bettering themselves and their lives by bringing about necessary changes. Instead of changing how they act, however, as with life coaching clients, transformational coaching clients work on changing the way they see themselves.”
Imagine being able to rearrange all the stuff your head in a way that produces better results in your life, a bit magical and mysterious in its rewards.
That’s what working with a Transformational Life Coach is like.

Transformational Life Coaching and Professional Services
Our holistic method of transformational life coaching includes facilitating positive changes in how you see yourself (who you are) and garnering results (what you do). It combines behavior and thinking modification with specific action plans to achieve and transform your experience of life, work and relationships. Becoming more self-aware leads to being more aware of others; managing your life better, achieving your goals and becoming a happier person.
Dudley Lynch, President of Brain Technologies, Inc. said this about Zen, “Consider Zen Benefiel to be one of those superlative examples of what the human brain can store and serve up in unique and appealing ways at will on most any occasion or assignment. To say his range of knowledge and interests are “eclectic” is engaging in understatement.”
Leveraging extensive experience in communication, facilitation, proactive strategic planning, project management and team building, Zen is a valuable advisor and resource for entrepreneurs, career professionals and small business owners. Confidentiality is a given as conversations often reveal feelings and thoughts not easily expressed or shared. Your well-being is the ultimate goal.
Your opportunity includes a 13-page Breakthrough Survey, developed from decades of self-discovery, which is your first task to complete. Sessions often go over 2 hours as we focus on your needs, not a clock. PLUS you get crisis calls in moments where you need to talk things out and waiting until the next session is not possible. Our goal is to create FLOW in your life, but you have to make the first step.
Find out more about the value for you – Schedule a 15-minute* call with Zen and set up a free in-person introductory session.
A Little Background
It seems best to have a life before becoming a life coach. Adoptees have a different view of life, often a deeper quest for connection. Ongoing personal transformations throughout a robust professional career makes a big difference in coaching conversations. Zen was a production control coordinator for a large aerospace company at 26 (now 62), responsible for over 800 parts and $7 million/mo in shipments and recognized as a top performer. A devastating divorce and career change with an undergrad business degree in hand at 30, he took a different path. He was a volunteer producer and host of over 100 television shows, called One World, that explored the depths of what keeps people like you and I afraid, angry, ignorant and immobile in the face of challenge. Over 200 guests had a golden thread of consistent activity, behavior and thinking toward overcoming fears in life and professions. Imagine having access to those salient points.
Zen went on to earn a Master of Business Administration, Master of Arts in Organizational Management plus Certification as a Hypnotherapist, Life Coach, Secondary and College Educator. Zen made the choice to undertake hundreds of hours of education across multiple disciplines to further qualify for helping people grow and succeed in life and work. Credentials do matter. Good time management and a knack for creating opportunities brought success across a number of industries, providing practical application of the skills, knowledge and ability developed through the trials and tribulations of being an educator, entrepreneur and owning several businesses.
Transformational Life Coaching Introductory Session
We’ll discuss our Core Ethics and Values so that you know confidentiality and emotional safety are honored and respected above all. You will be asked to share your current situation, your desires of the future and hopeful outcome of the coaching process. The most important part of our conversation is on your goals and objectives; perceived strengths and weaknesses in accomplishing them. The goals and objectives are broken down into short-term and long-term in order to eventually (future sessions) craft an action plan to meet both. Specific details will vary with each conversation. Schedule a 15-minute* call with Zen to find out more.
What kind of results can you expect?
That is a great question. You will have an action plan and tools to work on it from our first session, so your efforts will be laser-focused and produce results beyond your expectations. Your transformational life coach helps you ask better questions, clarify answers and offer suggestions for improved results. We monitor your progress together so every challenge is met with a collaborative solution. One specific client, featured below, saw a 150% increase in revenue in the first 90 days of our coaching relationship, not to mention the additional benefits he shares.
Review from Kevin Fox, DC
Zen has been great! I will continue to engage his coaching services! His innate insights and empowering questions have given me both knowledge and an inner understanding of myself. This has allowed me to see and feel things better as I navigate my life. As a businessman, husband, father and professional the results have been beyond any previous business or personal coaching. Zen is able to resolve very complex situations and offer simple questions to guide the resolve. This has helped me and those around me.
As a chiropractor and business owner, I’ve hired several business coaches that had a lot of information and little actual help in accomplishing goals and objectives. In just 3 months Zen has helped me with focus, stress reduction, how to be more productive and communicating with others, just to mention a few results. This has benefited everything around me including myself, my business, my patients and my family. He does this in a way that no other coach or counselor does. He takes a holistic approach using his years of education and background to help reach each individual’s potential. Thanks Zen!
We met nearly 7 years prior at a Muscular Dystrophy fund-raiser and apparently I left a good impression. He kept my card and eventually reached out after exploring other coaches. You don’t have to wait that long. Just schedule a 15-minute* conversation to see how I can benefit your life.
Exclusive Breakthrough Survey – Unique in the Industry
Included in your transformational life coaching program is an industry-leading personal survey that is priceless; an in-depth investigation of your behaviors, beliefs, challenges, habits, how you see yourself and preferences that impact your life goals and objectives. It is a comprehensive tool to start the coaching process, a priceless piece that provides a solid foundation for our continuing sessions. You can track your transformation, too. You’ll get a free introductory session first to see if we are a fit. In-person sessions are best and video-conferencing is available as well.
Paying it forward … the breakthrough survey to start the transformational coaching process. Whether you hire me or not, this is priceless.
