Doris Gottlieb has been an authorized Genuine Contact Trainer since 2011 and Co-Owner. She has worked for 20 + years following her fascination with people and organizations. In that regard, she has worked in varied sectors from education to industry, from non-profits to commercial ventures. Through it all, she has remained convinced that when people put their minds and hearts together they have capacity for great good. Her belief in people and their inherent beauty is what attracted her to Genuine Contact™ and once she began to work this way, she was hooked seeing how it elegantly taps into human capacity to create conditions in which people thrive. By creating life-nurturing processes, practices, structures, and developing the conduct that enables people to work in ways that honor life and nature Genuine Contact has just been a wonderful framework within which to approach organizational challenges.
Doris has a special interest in working with grief, as she has found that so many of her clients struggle with the effects of unrecognized grief within their organizations and personal lives. It has been a special benefit of working with Genuine Contact to have structure, processes, and methods that allow for grief to become something that is acknowledged as part of the complex life of an organization.
Elisabeth Tepper Kofod
Elisabeth is a GC Trainer and Co-Owner. Ever since she had her training in 2008 she just knew that there was no going back. Working with people had to be in the Genuine Contact way. Elisabeth describes it as the most holistic and organic way of relating to people, of learning, of teaching, of solving conflicts, of participating in meetings, of facilitating transformation processes both in individuals and organizations.
For over 20 years Elisabeth worked in American corporations. Initially in Venezuela and later, as an external consultant for Puerto Rico (Caribbean) and Chile. From this experience, she understands the work stress within large organizations. She then became a freelance Transformation Process Facilitator and consultant in Venezuela and works with the tools and resources she has gathered and developed over the years. Elisabeth now lives in Spain and she recognizes grief as a fundamental piece of life, especially as a stepping stone into growth and transformation.
