Leeza Byers has a lifelong passion for helping people achieve their maximum potential in life. She is also deeply committed to helping others experience their life purpose through work they enjoy doing, just as she does on a daily basis when engaged with her clients. Through speaking engagements, career coaching, interviewing strategy coaching, resume writing and workshop facilitation, she spends her days focused on others.
Leeza has 15+ years’ combined experience in career development counseling at the state and local government levels in Minnesota and Georgia, along with corporate HR Recruiting and Training & Development in the Technology and Finance industries.
Also well known and respected in the career industry, she was recently the recipient of one of the most prestigious awards in the Career Industry – a TORI (Toast of the Resume Writing Industry) for the ‘Best Technical Resumes’ from thousands of national and international Resume Writers. Some of Leeza’s best work has also been published in the Gallery of Best Resumes and Cover Letters.

She created the Courageous Job Seeker Success SystemTM out of a passion to assist ambitious, forward-thinking professionals―Executives & Mid-Career professionals who know what they want to pursue but struggle to communicate their true value in the marketplace. They want to regain that precious balance between work and their personal lives, so that they have a career they love at a salary they deserve–and never have to suffer through another ‘Life-Sucking’ day at a job they hate. The system also works for the unemployed who need to stand out from other job seekers, get more interviews and win job offers–essentially find their IDEAL job fast, so that they don’t stay unemployed a minute longer than they have to be.
Leeza’s Courageous Job Seeker Success SystemTM gets job seekers employed in 5-8 weeks (some even do it in 3 weeks); which is less than half the national average of 39-54 weeks it takes to find a new job in today’s super-competitive job market.

When Leeza is not coaching:
She spends time with her wonderful husband George, daughters Grace and Faith and their dog Chico. As a licensed health & life insurance agent, George also enjoys educating and helping professionals to secure customized insurance based on their unique needs; that will help them maintain optimum health while they secure a stable financial future and leave a legacy for their loved ones.

Leeza and her husband also serve as Group Leaders at their local Church called: “MESSAGE TALKS;” which is about enhancing people’s spiritual growth in Christ and establishing a close-knit community among believers. They accomplish this by sharing their sincere thoughts and life reflections of the Sunday morning sermon, and how everyone can apply the guiding principles of God’s Word to their daily lives. Another powerful component of “Message Talks” is praying for one another as a group of believers. It’s been truly amazing to see God respond and meet all of their individual prayer requests.
