Zen Benefiel began his obsession in helping people becoming a Phoenix, #671, including a BSBA, Secondary Teaching certification and a double Master’s in Business Administration and Organizational Management over 20 years. He has taken advantage of myriads of opportunities and produced a plethora of possibilities for clients and cohorts alike. He’s a real caricature, too.
His first taste of putting people, places and things to meet goals was as a production control coordinator for an aerospace company with monthly goals of $7 million in shipments. He started Be The Dream during that time (1988), hoping to lead the charge in personal and professional development programs. Through serving as a partnering facilitator for ADOT, DoD, FHWA and National Park Service projects, he’s been on the hot seat in the middle of the room by choice, achieving award-winning performances by the stakeholders.
Dubbed a ‘Possibilities Coagulator’ by Dudley Lynch, author and president of Brain Technologies, Inc., he’s worked with manufacturers, events companies, micro-lending programs, and was a short-term Chief Operating Officer for an entrepreneurial incubator. He’s also a digital designer, social media extrovert and webmaster.
Zen’s had some previous radio television experience, producing and hosting One World, a talk show on how to build community through best practices, on cable access for nearly 3 years and over 120 shows. He’s got a reputation for making his guests feel comfortable and relaxed, even when sensitive subjects come up.
