Jeff Reynolds, CEO

Lisa is a phenomenal leader, coach, and strategist. I first met Lisa as my personal executive coach. She was fearless! She candidly told me exactly what I needed to hear about a variety of topics from leadership style, communication methods, and strategy development. However, it was her insightful and compassionate approach that actually endeared me to her. Whether she was delivering tough to hear points of view or easy to take compliments, she always delivered it in a way that respected the situation and those involved. I learned a great deal from Lisa and she has had a profound impact on who I am as a leader. I would highly recommend Lisa to any organization or leadership team.
