Libby Dishner, MLHR, ACC

Leadership Coach

Libby DishnerLibby is an Executive/Leadership Coach and OD Specialist for ELP. Libby holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology from The Ohio State University. She also earned her graduate degree in Human Resources from the widely acclaimed Fisher College of Business also at Ohio State. Moreover, Libby earned her Associate Coaching Certification (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). She is also a proud recipient of the sought-after credential of Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR).

Libby is battle tested after serving 20+ years in the corporate world where she held high executive positions, particularly in that of HR. Like ELP’s other leadership experts, Libby’s experience is both broad and deep. She’s executed and performed at the highest of levels in the retail, technology, financial services, and non-profit sectors. Also, a point of pride for Libby is her work and engagements with our nation’s Big Four consulting firms. Given this startling background, Libby remains in high demand as a coach, HR strategist, and speaker. A mentor to other executive coaches, we’re proud of Libby’s service as a board member for the Virginia Chapter of the ICF.

At ELP, Libby consistently deploys her skills to help organizations unlock unrealized potential. For instance, Libby earned rave reviews and positive feedback on her coaching at one of our nation’s largest short-line railroads. Even more, Libby continues to build a rather sterling reputation as a coach that can execute virtual coaching sessions through SKYPE or phone that rival the fidelity and impact of a face-to-face session. Libby also brings unparalleled facilitation and workshop expertise to the ELP team; she honed many of these skills at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), where she taught the Organizational Behavior course.

Besides being on the phone making leaders even better, Libby likes to give back in other ways. She’s extraordinarily active in her community and sits on several nonprofit and association boards such as the ICF chapter mentioned above.
