What people are saying:

“Thea is a gift. She’s an amazing coach and business woman!” -Christine N.

“I’ve experienced the value of Thea’s work and guidance up close and personal. She is the real deal if you want to move the needle forward personally or professionally. Our company was able to implement many internal changes that build teamwork and success as we grew. As business owners, she helped facilitate changes to implement our vision for the future and help to guide us to our goals.” -Mary G.

“I’ve known and been privileged to have Thea as my coach for 15 years. She was most instrumental in guiding me to amazing possibilities that have transformed every aspect of my life. Pure LOVE!!  -Geri W.

“Thea empowers, encourages growth, assists and enables by coaching and coaxing that what we already possess. This enables the recipient to fully maximize his or her potential without losing the individual within…and praise does not come any higher than that” -Peter B.

“Thea is an amazing coach. Over the years her wisdom and coaching propelled me to living a life beyond recognition. In both my personal and business life she’s supported me in making great things happen and today among other things, I’m a published author and public speaker. Her coaching provides a clear path and structure to overcoming any obstacles and things she coached me on years ago still apply today. It’s not uncommon for me to think “what would Thea say?” and somehow I know how to proceed. Thea is passionate about her clients and imparts her coaching with love and allows you to experience your own greatness and potential. -Bari L.

“A few years ago I was blessed to work one-on-one with Thea and it was nothing short of remarkable. From the very first call I was put at such ease and given such a great space to start to address what was holding me back, that the results showed up almost immediately. Thea is the best listener I have ever known and even though we did all of the work by phone (in fact I have only just recently met her in person), I could “feel” her listening, and her response consistently backs up that feeling every time. Her warmth, mixed with such keen perception, is a gift to anyone ready to put in the work and get back on track. Thank you Thea for helping me step into a bigger role for myself, our Foundation, and the children we serve in India” -Barbara J.

“There are coaches and then there is Thea, who elevates coaching to an art. I have watched her making a difference in peoples lives for many years at larger seminars and decided to have her as a personal coach. I wanted to pursue my creative talents and put those talents out in the world. I had tremendous fear and vulnerability about it. The negative thoughts I had running through my mind were soon replaced with Thea’s voice of possibility. I was able to move past the fears. It was amazing. Not only is she the best; she is a joy to work with and have as a partner in my transformation.” -April M.

“I have always had a coach. This started in high school when I was involved in sports and I saw the importance of that role and the impact it made on my life. As I got older, I was fortunate enough to find a coach who is still my life coach today, Thea Sommer from Beyond Ten Coaching and Consulting. I am here to tell you, life is one big game and having a life coach there for me was like having someone in my corner to call me out when I screwed up, but also remind me that I am capable of great things.” -Amber D.

“I have been working with Thea for many years and always come away from our coaching sessions feeling grounded yet challenged.  Thea has a very powerful, insightful way about her, and I very much appreciate and am inspired by Thea’s ability to channel her vast life experiences through her coaching.  With much appreciation.” -David B.

“After working with Thea for over 2 years, I so appreciate her unwavering support, directness, and compassion. After every call, I am ready to take on the world. I always leave the calls loving business, life and all relationships. I am a better business owner, team leader, wife and person thanks to Thea.” -Catherine M.

“At a stage of my career when I was searching for new opportunities, Thea provided constructive and pragmatic counsel to crystallize the alternatives and establish frameworks for optimally matching my desires and skill sets to the ‘next act’. Her sound perspective and great sense of humor proved invaluable to this process.” -David K.

“Thea is a coach who transforms lives, relationships and organizations. She gets to the heart of the matter, uncovers new possibilities and gets the results you want. She is a master at facilitating change and taking you from where you are now, to where you want to be.”– Carrie H.

“I met Thea during a challenging year as the executive director of a local human rights nonprofit organization in 2012. She was introduced by a mutual friend, a businessman and activist for whom I have the utmost respect. He told me I should meet Thea because she would be able to help me improve my effectiveness personally and professionally. I was skeptical, and I told Thea that the first day we met. My skepticism was part cultural, as a Puerto Rican, Cuban raised in a traditional household, and part experiential, as a first time leader I wasn’t aware of this type of support and its worth. So I asked her a simple question, “What makes you qualified to tell me how to run my organization and my life?” – her answer is what changed my mind and ultimately changed my life and work. I won’t share with you what she said, that’s for you to find out by becoming Thea’s client.

The year I worked with Thea was my most successful and productive year as an executive. I was at my best while under her guidance. The organization was effective, I was at my sharpest, and as a result our work was the best it could be by achieving the goals we set.
Thea’s approach is surgical and her knowledge of situations we encounter as leaders is masterful. She is first on my list of business coaches to recommend when asked for professional development support. -CJ O.

“Truth be told, I worked assiduously over the past year with my Coach to improve my teambuilding, coaching and interpersonal skills and had significant breakthrough in effective communication and setting compelling outcomes. As a result, my leadership score moved from the mid 60’s  to 83% ” -Lorna H.

“Meet our corporate coach Thea. We are highlighting her today. Thea Sommer has built a successful personal and corporate coaching business called Beyond Ten. She has been coaching our founder for the last 12 years and we have been so grateful to have her as the corporate coach for Jackie. Thea believes in open and honest communication and encourages authenticity on every level in an organization. Check her company out and if you are ready to take your business to another level, she is the secret ingredient.” -The Team at Jackie

“I feel like I’m on the path to being a better and more effective leader. I now strategically plan out my day and week so I can get large projects accomplished. Previously, I was working aimlessly and just focusing on the day-to-day tasks in front of me. She’s helping us to put so many much needed checks & balances in place. Let me also tell you that Thea has truly helped me to see a few things (well, maybe more than a few) in myself that I truly need to be committed to working on, as well. I truly feel like an architect as I build this incredible department. Thea (and you both, of course) has definitely further empowered me to continue to design and build. Slow and steady. The foundation is ALMOST done (only took a year and a half J).” -Kenny K.
