Leadership Speaking Topics

Transforming the Human in Human Resources®

60% of employees say managers are the reason they left their company and 31% of employees say Manager Unprofessionalism is their reason for leaving*.
With U.S. turnover continuing to trend up and the preventable reasons for leaving also trending up, it appears that organizations are not taking the necessary actions to prevent employees from quitting.” Work Institute
Workplace statistics regarding the lack of management development in the workplace and their result on employee retention continue to go unaddressed and therefore unchanged. 
Lisa uses lessons from The Butterfly and her own Leadership Journey to share and demonstrate critically important managerial soft-skills that are key to getting the job done, becoming an exceptional leader and ensuring “no matter how tough the conversation, every employee walks out of your office with their dignity intact”.
*according to SHRM & the Work Institute respectively.

DISC The Model of Human Behavior

How Understanding Behavior Styles can Increase Profits and Productivity

  • Understand interaction dynamics among the styles and how to use this insight to improve productivity, communication, team building, conflict resolution and more.
  • Participants learn how to be better leaders, colleagues, and work better as a team and an individual.

Enjoy the discovery of the model of human behavior including insights that become a catalyst to Transforming the Human in Human Resources® while improving personal and business relationships.

I have to say that yours was one of the best … presentations I have ever seen! Definitely on point hitting on all cylinders. … laying out the distinction for task oriented D & C types – Know/Trust/Like instead of the standard Know/Like/Trust model is an amazing insight and I believe quite accurately portrays how things work in the real world.

As a professional facilitator and public speaking coach, I am frequently amazed at the lackluster content and delivery of many, if not most, presenters. Not Lisa!! Her dynamic yet relaxed delivery proves her expertise in speaking. She is one of the best speakers on her topic, I have ever had… You will not be sorry to engage Lisa as a keynote for your organization.

I’ve had the honor of participating in a few workshops with Lisa, one of which was a leadership session for community leaders on “Leading From True North.” The wealth of information that Lisa was able to impart was topical, relevant, and engaging. Participants left the session with resources and information to improve their leadership skills. I would highly recommend Lisa as a speaker and facilitator.
