HELPING LEADERS LIKE YOU
TURN CRISIS AND CHANGE INTO A CATALYST TO THRIVE
Are You Experiencing Tremendous Pressure as a Business Owner or Team Leader?
Trying to lead a business or team through internal changes, launches or "busy season" can be disruptive enough. Add in external factors such as market or economic shifts (not to mention pandemic after-effects) and you can have a recipe for disaster for meeting your revenue targets, achieving the big outcomes you have defined for this year, keeping morale on your team up and keeping your energy and motivation high.
Your team is looking to you as both role model and rock amidst the storm. That puts tremendous pressure you at a time when you are barraged by increasing complexity, information overload, uncertainty and change.
And you are not immune to the same fears and stress the rest of your team is affected by. The difference is, you have to lead despite them.
You CAN Use Crisis and Change as a Catalyst to Thrive
Every crisis and change we face yields new opportunities for innovation, growth and prosperity, particularly for those who intentionally use that upheaval as a catalyst to grow and become more resilient for the future.
The things that scare us most - the uncertainty, ambiguity, the way that everything seems to be falling apart or constantly shifting - for the anti-fragile leader, this is the very soil from which possibility is born.
You CAN Shift How You See and Approach This Situation
If you are combatting debilitating stress, poor team morale, resistance to change or losing your top people, your way of being as a leader may be working against you.
We each have a unique way of perceiving ourselves, others and the situations we find ourselves in.
It's like a pair of glasses that we wear each day and don't know we are wearing. This lens, or way of being, is usually unseen by us because it feels like it is us - until we remove the glasses.
Your way of being as a leader informs the way see things, how you feel, what you say and do, and how you check for results.
This way of being can either work for you or against you, depending on how aware of it you are.
You CAN Prioritize
Well-Being, For You and Your Team
You can build new muscles that allow you to:
Put self-care first
Manage pressure and stress with grace
Increase resilience and adaptability
Respond decisively and strategically
Master complexity and ambiguity
Communicate clearly and confidently
Navigate conflict and change with ease
See challenge as an opportunity for growth
Hold a tight container for your team no matter the circumstances
Wield power effectively and empathetically
You CAN Build A Happy, Healthy Culture
Regardless of the nature of the uncertainty, crisis or change, the one thing that can create sustainability is focusing on building a strong culture embedded at every level of your organization.
By doing so, you create an organization that can withstand the complex situations you face - from strategic pivots to turnarounds to product launches to emerging markets to the effects of pandemic - because your people will stand together.
How do you create a culture that can live up to that promise?
By becoming the kind of leader that can create and hold a tight container grounded in safety and accountability.
The First Step Is to Get Support When You Need It Most
Normal business situations that need a "new way" like launches, "busy season," driving strategic alignment or building a high-performance team.
Out-of-the-ordinary changes to strategy, business model, systems, operations, products, etc. or preparing for extended leave.
Never-before-faced situations like multi-phased downsizing and reorganization, merge/acquisition, positioning the company to sell or CEO to retire.
Culture shift situations to improve morale, communication & connection or leverage the team to free up the Owner/CEO to focus on their sweet spot or focus on life outside the business.
Happy, healthy leaders create happy, healthy organizations and those organizations retain top performers, are more agile and have a human-centric culture that is experienced by clients which equates to better profitability. Let me help you amplify your happy.
I love to help leaders and teams create breakthrough results and change in high impact areas of their organizations and relationships. I'm available for live or virtual keynotes, workshops or conference breakouts.
Building a strong team culture is critical withstand the volatility, uncertainty, ever-changing environment of today's businesses. Let me help you create a team culture of having each other's backs.

What Clients Are Saying
Jeremi, Founder & President
I had the privilege of working with Lisa in my first startup. We were in the midst of significant growth (both organically and strategically). Scaling is difficult for most startup founders. Throw in multiple countries, multiple acquisitions, and multiple personalities and the complexity skyrockets. That is especially true if you are trying to curate a special culture. Lisa's counsel and guidance were instrumental in my professional (and personal) success.
Stephanie, Business Owner
Lisa has been an invaluable resource for myself and my team during the past year. I can’t say enough about her endless knowledge, creative strategy and genuine care she brings to each and every session we have. In a relatively short amount of time working with Lisa, I’ve gone from working all of the time, putting out fires and mircomanaging to thinking and planning strategically and creating an agile team that can take the lead while I focus on the business development and having a life outside of business. Plus, we’ve been able to adapt to the COVID-19 Crisis and shift our organization to maximize opportunities.
Because of Lisa, I can find joy and balance in my life again.
I was blessed to have Lisa as a coach during a very chaotic and disruptive time in our company. She was engaged to help improve the dynamics of our executive team and also assist each of us in our maturation as leaders. What I particularly appreciated was how effective she was at learning who I was (at a meaningful depth) and then using those insights to make our sessions incredibly pertinent and effective for me. My time with Lisa was immensely valuable, and I can't recommend her enough for anyone who is looking for a partner and coach to help them navigate through a variety of personal and professional challenges.
