"I want to thank Dr. Lisa. Early on in my leadership journey we connected. I reached out and asked for help in making the decision to become chief of emergency medicine. She was critical to me making the decision to step into this role. Nervousness is expected in any big decision, but she certainly held my hand and helped me get through it. A little less than a year ago we were talking about this, and now here I am and thankful."
"After working with Dr. Lisa, I was able to advocate for myself. I was able to communicate more effectively and lead with the why so there was no room for miscommunication. I met my goal of reaching top performer and still was able to advocate for the hours that worked for me. All in all, I believe the coaching reformed me."
"Prior to working with Lisa, I was facing some challenges … and was finding my confidence shaken. This had a significant impact on my job satisfaction. Lisa helped me recognize and shift a dynamic that stemmed from a prior learned response, one that had affected my interactions with those who had significant influence over my professional success and growth. Lisa was able to reflect back to me my fundamental assumptions which were shaping my responses. In doing so, I tried a different approach, which elicited a different response and improved my presence and efficacy as a leader."
