I have coached a variety of people who were stuck. For some they were overwhelmed with all the things they needed to do in order to have a successful business. They were unclear of goals and planning and needed more accountability. For others they were stuck in careers that no longer fulfilled them. They needed to find the next chapter in their career. Then there are the ones who are needing the next chapter in their lives. Finding their purpose and heading towards it.
I work in partnership with my clients for a period of 3 to 6 months. We meet weekly either in person, over the phone or on Zoom. Sessions last from 30 to 60 minutes. Before each session I will send a questionnaire to get you ready for the session. Then we will discuss the issues that are keeping you from being your best and discover ways to address those issues. At the end of our coaching relationship, clients are more confident, blockages have been removed and they are ready to head forward in life.
I've owned a coffee shop, been the Executive Director of a non-profit organization, worked with at-risk youth and teenage parents, as well as youth whose biggest challenge is what university to attend. I've worked for social justice around the world and am a mother of two adult sons. I was married for 26 years and then at the age of 45 found myself single. I have the ability to look through the many details and overwhelming weight of uncertainty to find clarity. While I am currently coaching, in the past I have also taught others to be coaches.
I offer all my clients a 30 minute free Life Clarity Session. At the end of the session we will see if we are a good fit. If we are, we will start our coaching relationship. If not, we will move on, no obligation.
Now it's time to take the first step. Pick up the phone and give me a call to schedule your free Life Clarity Session. I look forward to hearing from you.

I have coached with Lissa Qualls twice in the past, and she is phenomenal! Through her faith-based support, accountability and powerful questions, she helped me write and publish two books and not to settle for a job when God has given me my own ministry/business.Altronise Williams
My name is Chad Dandurand. Before I met with Lissa Qualls, I was a young man who was starting to develop myself personally with a lot of fears, doubt, opportunities, and successful stories just waiting to happen. After being coached by Lissa, she showed me a mirror of my value as a person, business man, leader, Christian, etc... in a way that was so powerful, I began to believe in who I am more than I ever had before. I left a good B2B sales career to go after one of my dreams which is my non profit I put together so we could become official. After walking by faith, trusting in God and listening to Lissa Qualls, I realized that the 70 hours a week I was putting towards sales, I was now putting towards World Experiences Foundation. I have since then been able to have lunch with Lt. Gov Todd Lamb, Dinner with former vice president Dick Cheney, become good friends with the honorary consulate of South Korea and many more influential political leaders in Oklahoma. They were the doors God was wanting to use to open His abundance in my life, but I first had to be obedient and walk by faith trusting He had only good in store for me. Lissa is the best and will bring out the best in you -Chad, English Teacher, Korea
I kept thinking I didn't need a Life Coach; nothing is wrong with me, but in fact, I did need you to help me think outside of the box. You made me feel so comfortable and confident in myself while challenging me at the same time. A simple thank you is not enough to describe how you have helped me during the last three months. I have grown by seeing and thinking of issues differently than I had in the past. I am able to embrace me even more because you didn't tell me, you led me to the truth of who I am. When I face trials now, I can navigate my way to better solutions because fear will no longer hold me back. Thank you for being one of my biggest supporters. You saw the true me before I did. Continue to bless others on their path to find themselves.LaDonna Wilson, Public Speaker, Oklahoma City, OK
In October 2014, I met Lissa Quails through the coaching website Noomii. The goal I wanted her to help me reach was daunting - complete the writing of a 100-page book by my 30th birthday on December 13, 2014. Each week, Lissa celebrated my accomplishments and helped me push past my largely self-imposed obstacles of poor time management and perfectionism to get the book in my heart on paper. Some of the many valuable lessons she taught me included: 1. Jesus said, "My yoke is easy and my burden is light. If it's not easy, and it's not light, then it's yours, not His." 2. The word "No" is a God thing at the right time. You are not letting anyone down if you say no. You are not responsible for everyone. You are not created to work 24/7. Protect your time so you can do what God has called you to do! 3. The assignment God has for you is not for you. It's for others. Give birth to it! As you are faithful to what God has already given you, He will give you more. And, true to her word, in the process of writing the first book, I received a divine idea for a second book. On 12/13/14, I birthed my first book. And by January 2015, I had completed the writing my second book, thanks to Lissa's phenomenal coaching. I am forever grateful to God for the gift of Lissa Quails. If you want to protect and make the best use of your time... If you want to achieve results quickly and efficiently... If you want to live with greater freedom, joy, and purpose... If you want to fulfill God's assignment on your life... Coach with Lissa Quails!Trece Williams, author, Memphis TN
I’ve been in a frustrated place, not sure if I’m heading in the right direction or if I need to course correct. Lissa is patiently helping me find structure while also having the freedom I need to be spontaneous also. She guides with encouragement but also doesn’t sugar coat areas that need work. I know I am a work in progress, and I am so grateful to Lissa for helping me to develop into the masterpiece God created me to be.Teresa Marshall – Independent Financial Advisor, Edmond, Oklahoma
If you’re reading this letter, you have either met or have been referred to meet with Ms. Lissa Qualls. All I can say is, you are about to meet someone who will, if you allow her, make a marked difference in your life. Lissa is filled with insight, knowledge, wisdom and the keen ability to ask the right questions that will allow you to think and assess where you are and where you could be, turning what if’s into why not’s. Her successful global experience with professionals in both the for-profit and non-profit arenas uniquely qualifies her to listen, observe, question, lead and validate a wide variety of personal and business situations. After meeting with Lissa over several weeks, I was able to discover the appropriate solutions that best addressed my specific situations. I highly recommend Lissa and the skills she provides.Trey Bowden, Mortgage Broker, Oklahoma City Oklahoma

The coaching that I have received from Lissa Qualls is more than just ordering my life more efficiently and getting tasks done more effectively, though it has done those things. Lissa brings to her work a special insight and wisdom that helps to release the creativity and ideas that are already in me that need to be identified and focused. Lissa goes about her work with a passion and exuberance that in: itself is contagiously motivating.The Rev. Dr. Stephen R. Samples, Priest, Enid Oklahoma
Once I learned what coaching is all about, I really got enthusiastic and curious on how this could help me to go through the new challenges I have been under lately, leadership demands, running a youth ministry, the creation of a strong team to impact my city in Nicaragua, Family time, capacitation for myself and others. It really sounded like a lot of things to do and no starting point. I accepted your invitation to join the coaching process with doubts about it. Little did I know how this process would make my life and duties easier. Something I have liked about your coaching is your trust in me. Your questions makes me think more than an answer as they confront me with ideas that I did not have before. This is what I like about your coaching, it is that sense of direction and ownership. Direction, because you lead to ways I had not walked before and Ownership because I realize that when the answer to my questions comes up through your questions, it is me finding the ideas, solutions, strategies, it is a sense of discovery. Thank you for this.Alberto Leiva, Youth For Christ Nicaragua, National Director
When we began coaching with Lissa Qualls, she asked what we wanted out of the coaching experience. Reluctantly, we said we would like more structure or discipline. Lissa's response was, "So you want to be more effective." We knew we had the right coach! Lissa's sessions help us focus on what is important. After four coaching sessions, our productivity soared. From organizing an organizational calendar to finalizing policies and procedures to setting goals and directives, Lissa's direction is so valuable. She helps us celebrate our victories and challenges us when we drag our feet. If anyone is debating whether coaching is worth it, our response is "Don't delay! Start today!" You will be thankful immediately.Paula Nightengale & David Hume, Executive Directors, Park Avenue Thrift, Enid Oklahoma
