Transformational Life Coaching Testimonials
Katie Von Kral – Artist
Zen helped me sift through my thoughts and goals so I could better achieve them. He helped me to expand my awareness for things within me and around me and use them as guides in daily living. Zen is extremely intelligent and sees things on levels that most people do not.
Tom Bergeon, CAD Engineer
Life changing experience! I was struggling with unexplainable anxiety, it was affecting my work. After just one meeting, it was bearable. Now, after 5 more, I feel like my life is better than it was before the anxiety started. And it’s all thanks to Zen.
K.C. Miller, Founder/Owner, Southwest Institute of Healing Arts
“Zen Benefiel is a man of great ideas and passion. You will never find Zen in a box ~ “Out of the Box” thinking is one of his best attributes. He is a wonderful motivational speaker and workshop leader. A few years ago I had the opportunity to bring him in to work with a staff of 15 people for Team Building. He did an outstanding job ~ so much so we still use the information as a benchmark for communication.”
Kevin Fox, DC – Optimal Spine and Health
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!
Dr. Fox waited seven years from our first meeting, and could have been much further along now.
Susan Winter, author/evolutionary relationship expert
Zen is a terrific life coach and insightful healer. His methods are advanced, as that is what is needed now for an evolving society. You won’t get “cookie-cutter” information from Zen; you will receive a precise reading of your inner self and learn how to use the magnificence you already possess to guide your decisions and create the manifestation of your goals. Nowadays, anyone can get an on-line coaching certificate. (It seems to be the new job title for every out-of-work actress I meet.) Those that are true healers, such as Zen, work beyond the limitations of static information. This approach unifies all modalities, as Zen brings his clients to the apex of their highest functionality in all aspects of their life.
Simply put, you’re the best life and business coach I’ve ever experienced. Always stimulating my process and my path in life and business, you make things clear as you explain a multidimensional picture of life. You really helped and supported me in creating change in my life, nurturing and universally accepting of me. I’ve known a lot of people in my life, 25 years in the Insurance business, who claim to be coaches. They don’t hold a candle to you, Zen.
Dudley Lynch, President – Brain Technologies, Inc.
I consider Zen 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 understatement. And this is what makes his services as a “possibilities coagulator” for his clients so valuable and exciting.
Smart fellow! Great ally!
Jack Dermody, Four Windows Personality Expert…
Do not hire Zen if you will settle for traditional guidance with no surprises. Don’t hire Zen if you merely aim to fulfill some education requirement. You see, Zen is no ordinary coach, consultant or facilitator.
Zen thinks, studies, learns,… then he communicates, communes and facilitates primarily to help people and institutions. Unfortunately for Zen, he cares so intensely about the core of his work that he has become a guru – a creature of both earth and space — whose work ought to be studied by concrete, action-taking followers and broken down for the rest of the world to understand and act upon.
I kept asking myself why I hadn’t thought of all the stuff he did. But that’s why I hired him. He saw through the trees and helped me back onto my mission.
So hire Zen because you know you need new information. You know you need to think differently. You realize you had better stop doing what you’ve been doing wrong for too long. And most of all, you can be sure that Zen will deliver the practical tools that will enable you to succeed at higher levels.
Do not be ordinary. Hire Zen.”
Sunder Rajan – IT Network Engineer
Zen brings a level of human revolution seldom experienced in traditional world. His presentation skills are exemplary, as can be witnessed by his many successful campaigns and product launches. Zen is also technically proficient and down to earth. He is able to connect to and inspire broad audiences. His guidance for me has always left me high-spirited and well educated for my daily success in decision making at all walk of life. Zen is a consummate professional and passionate individual who can be counted on to help plan carefully and thoroughly, to mobilize the needed resources and to motivate you for great results with a massive Inner Transformation.
Nikki Davis – Entrepreneur, Web Design Consultant
What makes Zen such an effective coach is that he has the wonderful (and extremely rare ability) to simply and respectfully listen to a client without judgment. Total compassion and confidentiality. This allows one to fully open up and trust Zen with their concerns. Zen is deeply passionate about helping people achieve clarity in order to create and implement effective solutions to their problems. He is there every step of the way! Zen’s extensive life experience allows him to relate to anyone about virtually anything! He has been there to advise me about my fears of starting my own web design business along with personal matters, too. I love the guy! Considering Zen for coaching? Investing in his coaching is a very fruitful and wise decision.
Todd Schaefer, Author/Speaker
Zen is an exceptional teacher, conceptualist and transformative coach. He has helped surround my limitations with awareness, showing me how to discover the nature of limitation itself. He has guided me to ask myself questions that empowered me to break on through to the other side. When you are ready to step bravely forward, enlist Zen’s help to ensure that you don’t fall back into old patterns and cheat yourself out of your potential. Zen knows the dynamics of that internal battle and can help you to stay accountable to yourself.
Mark Geretti , Controller, ABI – Tempe, AZ
Since I’ve known Zen, he is a facilitator of change and naturally facilitates the ability to glimpse a new perspective and awareness. And that change is about breaking new ground. Zen has the ability to show up in one’s life usually just when you need to reach further or find your way personally, spiritually or professionally. Zen’s sense of inquiry and experience help one to find their own answers. And in my opinion, that is nature’s highest road. And when change becomes fearful, Zen’s calm demeanor and occasional dry humor help the ability to move freely. Zen, thanks for your insight over the years.
Chuck Rogala, Owner/Principal AZ Rogala REI, LLC
Great Results, High Integrity, Creative
My path was unclear; complications had entered my life, my business and my thinking. Last week I was in the right place and received a consultation from Zen, he did not judge, he did not direct, he listened and helped me identify and separate my complications and show me my path. That is a very powerful ability to share with people.
Nancy Chase, Owner – LiveWell Ventures, Inc.
“Working with Zen is as his name reflects, a tranquil place of intuitive and happy beginnings! I would recommend him to anyone searching for guidance in their personal evolution, be it emotional, spiritual and/or occupational. He is a kind, humorous, pragmatic universal thinker that can help you put your thoughts in a more constructive perspective. Creating suggested venues for personalizing a joyful and successful plan for change, renewal, and visualization will help you evolve the paradigm you desire to live in.
I found Zen on an effort to link with a soul that would understand my transitional ideas, my new thoughts, and might be able to help me evolve my challenges in a thoughtful way…and I landed on Zen’s page! His concepts and offer to coach me were intriguing and kind, and when it said he loved Rock n Roll, I knew he must be alright! My suggestion to you is to give Zen a call, share your ideas, concerns, concepts… and he will carry you to the outer limbs of the tree so you can get a better view. He will hold your hand so you don’t fall.”
“Zen’s commitment to possibility is profound. He has experienced life beyond fear and has infinite compassion for others. There is no stopping Zen. He is intense and totally coach-able. In the first two weeks of working together, a world transforming possibility took shape with an ensemble and core competencies insuring success. Chief Coagulator is the perfect title for Zen. For all he’s done, the world has seen nothing yet. Stay tuned!”
…and now for something completely different. (I love that line from Eric Idle)
I’m a Manyhatman, continuing to expand my view and explore other’s point of view in the shifting perspectives of co-creation. This first collection of testimonials come from various guests I’ve had on a recent podcast I began in June of 2021. They will give you some insight, too. Transformational Life Coaching testimonials are below. Enjoy your visit and hopefully, I’ll pass the audition.
Guests from One World in a New World
I’ve known Zen for years, though at something of a distance. It was clear from the beginning that he had a keen intellect, an avid curiosity, and a delight in life. The more I’ve gotten to know him, the more impressed I’ve been with his depth and breadth of knowledge across a wide range of disciplines. And as we’ve engaged more actively and directly in recent months, I’ve discovered what a joy it is to be in collaborative conversation with him, learning together along the way. Zen is a special breed of wayfinder and a wise soul.
As Publisher and Executive Editor presiding over an award-winning global media digest, I have the unique opportunity to read/curate thousands of essays on topics from across the business, life, and culture spectrum and to interface with talented pros worldwide. As one of our premier Featured Contributors, Zen has from day one distinguished his creative contributions from so many via a knack for keen observation and what can best be described as “radical curiosity”.
From an Editorial perspective, our quest has been to provide fresh Insights, Intelligence, and Inspiration to our very substantial and very loyal worldwide audience. In this regard, Zen simply delivers time and again by breaking through all of the “content clutter” out there to inspire our readers to step back and think – looking at the world through a broader lens. Such an approach is simply priceless – particularly in the context of today’s rapidly-changing world.
We are fortunate that Zen continually perseveres in his mission to transform lives and harmonize our world. His ability to connect unconventional leaders, social entrepreneurs, and innovative change makers, magnifies their gifts and broadens their impact. As a coach, Zen is able to combine spirituality and leadership to release creativity, generate innovative thinking, and empower our best selves.
Zen is very knowledgeable about a variety of topics related to transformational leadership and group dynamics. As a contributor to collective narratives co-created by the participants of the Thought Leadership for Systems Transformation Program, he added great value with his passion and experience. Zen is also a talented network weaver and a skilled podcast host. If you are looking for a coach or facilitator who has a deep commitment to transcending division and separation or if you are looking for a thought partner or connector in the field of change, engaging Zen would be a great choice!
I’ve been interviewed by over 300 podcasters in the last couple years and I have to say that Zen stands out as a beacon of purpose. He came prepared by researching ahead of time, and at the same time was open to the flow of the conversation and asked some amazingly cool questions that no one of his peers ever did. He’s smart, articulate, thoughtful and purposeful. If you are asked to be interviewed by him or are looking for someone to work with who does work that’s not the norm, that’s above and beyond your expectations, reach out to Zen.
Zen is a rare spirit in pursuit of the higher value understanding we all need to thrive. Zen moves with confidence and insight thought the ethereal and the practical to achieve actionable knowledge. Zen had read widely in the plethora of thought offered to each of us, and has thought deeply about the meaning, value and beauty of what he has discovered. What a joy to work with him to build wisdom; the type of wisdom that brings pleasure to the struggles often faced in a business life. I recommend connecting with Zen and participating in his passion for connecting us to the next level evolution/revolution in our culture.
