Coaches comments on using LIA:


I have been coaching, advising, and mentoring leaders for the better part of my thirty year career, and I find that using the LIA helps me to partner with clients and more quickly zero in to help them to find focus, and to reveal patterns and blind spots. 

-Lisa Anna Palmer - Founder & CEO Light Your Leadership

 I find the LIA tool to be extraordinarily well-constructed and powerfully useful. The tool combines quantitative input, an accessible graphic output, and nuanced intuitive opportunity.

-Dave Klaus, Coach, Consultant 


I found the training insightful as well as thorough and can see how it can benefit the coaching profession as it serve clients in a way that would best help them make massive changes in their lives.

From the founder:

Help clients see themselves like they’ve never seen themselves before.



The Life Map - the tool to use to know your clients.

As a LIA Certified Coach, you have access to use the LIA: Life Inventory Assessment to zero in on the areas of highest impact for your clients. Offer your clients an opportunity to have their own LIA: Life Map to gain valuable insights into their life alignment.

Gain valuable client insights through the interactive life map. The main life map view shows the 13 life categories and their relative priority and state of fulfillment. Drilling in to any of the life categories will reveal the 5 wellbeing measures, each with the ability to drill down even further to gain rich insight into a client's state of wellbeing.

Maurice's approach is a blend of business-savvy and compassionate coach. He makes everyone feel safe, seen, and heard and gets right to the heart of the matter to make a big change in a short amount of time with people from all walks of life. Highly recommended.
