Liz Selzer, Ph.D., M.A., M.Div

Founder, MLT

Vice President, Mentoring, UIF

Liz founded Mentor Leadership Team because she understands the value of people. When people are valued because of their unique qualities and given the skills they need to excel, organizations soar.


Liz is a widely sought after consultant, trainer and keynote speaker on corporate mentoring strategies and leadership development. She has trained for the implementation of mentoring programs in organizations such as NASA, ConocoPhillips, Compassion International, and Eglin Air Force Base.  As a practitioner, she has overseen leadership development programs for organizations with more than 30,000 leaders in the nonprofit sector. As a speaker, Liz has a global expertise. She has presented to audiences across the world in countries like India, Indonesia, China, Sri Lanka, Ireland, Australia, Canada, Colombia and throughout the United States.


Liz has published three books and countless articles. Her first book, 3G Mentoring describes Mentor Leadership Team’s approach toward mentoring as an essential relational strategy to bridge generational distinctions, global diversity and gender differences within the workforce. Her second book, Real Leaders: The Power of Authentic Leadership, draws from her deep practical knowledge of what it takes to be a real leader people will follow. Her third book, Your Culture at its Strongest: How to Create an Environment Where People Naturally Do Remarkable Things, outlines 4 key connections for building a vibrant, innovative work environment. Liz is the co-host of MLT’s radio series, M.A.D. (Mentoring Across Differences Radio).


A lifelong learner, Liz has earned three post-graduate degrees, culminating in her Ph.D. in Education with an emphasis in training and performance improvement from Capella Universtiy. People are often surprised to learn that one of Liz’s degrees is a Master of Divinity. This degree uniquely qualifies her to meet the needs of faith-based nonprofits and churches as well.


When she’s not doing what she loves professionally, Liz can be found enjoying the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
