Lisa is at her best when working with people to help them get to where they want to be. Lisa works with managers, leaders, teams, individuals, all within an organizational context. Lisa brings her whole self and a variety of resources to coach others.
A constant learner, Lisa is never satisfied with the status quo. Lisa believes there is always a better way – and it’s not that she has the answer – but the answer lies within the system, the people, the organization – we just have to get at it.
Lisa’s overall guiding principle is to keep the learning conversation flowing. It is impossible for her to keep valuable information to herself – she does not believe in hoarding information, because sharing ideas and concepts only enriches us, it does not diminish.
