“Lisa helped our team work past our conflicts without telling us exactly what to do - she gave us the right tips to figure it out on our own which made the learning stick!”K. Nassar, Project Manager Business Intelligence at Air Liquide
“The external and internal pressure of the one year MBA program combined with my heavy lifting for the team had left me hollow and exhausted down the home stretch. I needed help to find strength and motivation to stay on track and see the light at the end of the tunnel as more than the headlight of the oncoming train. Lisa helped me regroup, refocus and rethink how to pick myself up and keep going. She came through for me by reaching in and showing me what I had inside to work with. Lisa got me to the finish line with a place on the podium.”M. Clayton, P.Eng. MBA CMA - Finance / IT / Marketing - Ideas / Strategy / Design

Great job!”D. Bellamy, CSTD
