As Featured In...

After working in the business world for 25+ years, I've discovered the core skills required for great leadership. I’ve managed teams, been the youngest and only female partner in a national firm, owned my own companies, and written 5 books on leadership.


My coaching, training, and consulting solutions help organizations cultivate strong leaders and cultures. I partner with leaders and teams to support performance excellence. Clients like HSBC, PwC, TELUS, and Time Warner, have described me as a 'phenomenal facilitator,' 'straight-shooting guide’ and 'no-nonsense coach.’ I care deeply about my clients and am happiest helping them get results.


I live by the water with my husband, son, and a cat that acts like a toddler. Hiking in the woods and stand up paddle boarding are my favourite recreational pursuits.

My Leadership Philosophy

How I Work With Clients

More About Lisa

Experienced  Certified

I believe coaching has the power to transform leaders one behavior at a time. 

I am a thought-partner and confidant to leaders on their way to or occupying the C-Suite. We collaborate to determine key behaviour changes needed to lead themselves, others, and their organizations more impactfully.


My strength is to see big-picture business and human issues, and facilitate insight that helps leaders to thrive personally and professionally. I hold two coaching designations -- Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and Stakeholder Centered Coaching (SCC).

Leadership & Culture Developer

I'm a fan of simplicity and clarity when it comes to strategy, culture, and leadership.


If strategy, leadership, and culture are defined in a complex manner, it results in confusion and missed opportunities. I help organizations design clear, compelling leadership and culture frameworks.


I've evaluated, refined, and operationalized team and company cultures. I've designed and facilitated 100's of leadership development programs in-person and online. And, I've licensed my programs to many organizations which, in turn, have delivered the content to employees worldwide.

Best-Selling Author &

I'm a creator at heart. I've written 5 books on leadership, including the best-seller Briefcase Moms.


I've presented countless webinars, conference keynotes, and breakouts on leadership, coaching and culture to audiences ranging from 10 to 10,000.


I'm a leadership, work-life harmony and executive coaching source for journalists, podcasters, and bloggers.


I once hosted a TV pilot called Maxed Out On Time.

We used Lisa's LEAD program at Teekay and were impressed with how well designed and easy to implement it was. It comes with terrific ebooks, assessments, guides, and train-the-trainer materials. It is a great core or add-on leadership program to offer. 

Lisa's webinar was a bit hit. Our 9,000+ audience gave it very high marks: 97% rated the session as Good/Very Good and 98% said the presenter’s presentation style was Good/Very Good.
