I am Sonya C. Thomas, the founder and president of George Thomas Coaching Consulting, and Training Growth Services, LLC. I am an on-going student and trainer of leadership and personal growth. I have trained leadership for over 25 years for the government, for-profit organizations and non-profit institutions. I have over 37 years’ experience working for a utility corporation where I found my purpose – helping others uncover their goals and aspirations through coaching where they may live a life of significance.

I was personally certified and mentored by John C. Maxwell as a leadership, coach, trainer, consultant, and speaker. I continue my own growth process through the Mentorship Program of the John Maxwell Team where 5,000+ leadership coaches across the world lift leaders to be more effective transformers of themselves, their community, their non-profit, or their organization.

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, and Speaker, I offer you workshops, seminars, keynotes speaking, n coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.


The desire and potential are in all of us to create success. To assist you, I offer you an opportunity in walking with you towards actually achieving your goals, your team, your organization, and even your non-profit institution.  As a representative of George Thomas I would be honored to partner with you through Mastermind groups, Seminars, Conferences, Workshops, Lunch & Learn sessions, Keynote Speaking, group or even one-on-one coaching via virtual or face-to-face.
