About Beth Wonson, Founder and CEO

Beth Wonson created  Navigating Challenging Dialogue®, out of her personal process of examining the ways in which traditional leadership skills fail the mission and goals of organizations. For the past two decades she’s studied how leaders working in isolation and staff working in competitive silos adversely affect the prosperity and growth of the whole.

Through her study of brain-based research, she recognized how emotions, stories, thinking errors, and fears impact our ability to create positive work environments. As a result, Beth uncovered a new approach to helping humans thrive in the workplace with a collaborative team chemistry.

Beth captivates audiences with the story of her own leadership crisis, the ensuing drama and chaos, and her journey to her understanding of how it could all be different. Beth’s mission is to empower others to reduce the burden, stress, and drama of the work world. When asked why she chooses to focus on the workplace, Beth said simply, “Because that’s where humans are for the majority of their time.”

Working with Beth Wonson, clients have a confidential partner with profound understanding of the challenges leaders faces. Through training and coaching, leadership clients develop meaningful tools to best navigate necessary growth and change while serving the good of the whole organization. Plus, they learn how to stop wasting valuable resources through unnecessary drama, miscommunication, unhealthy conflict, and chaos.

In addition to facilitating Navigating Challenging Dialogue® workshops, Beth Wonson is also a speaker, leadership coach and consultant, and author. Check out her workshops, leadership videos, books, and Dynamics of Leadership podcast.
