Client Story

“Lisa has an uncanny ability to quickly assess where she can provide the biggest impact during our sessions—regardless of how clearly (or not) I share my day-to-day and ongoing challenges with her. She remembers details from months prior, so I can see things at both the ground and 30,000-foot level. She also ties her insights to practical steps, so I always feel empowered to do something specific after every session. She's helped me evolve from feeling overwhelmed and indecisive at work to having a strong voice, making decisions, and having renewed passion for and agency in my career path. She also has a fabulous sense of humor.” — Hilary


Leadership Coaching

Whether you're leveling up at work, starting something new, or tending a seedling possibility, coaching helps you figure out where you’re headed, why it matters to you, and how you’ll carve your own path.

As your coach, I partner with you to uncover your values and strengths, clarify your goals, and move forward step-by-step. Together we’ll create personalized experiments to test your hypotheses about what helps you thrive and grow into the leader you want to be.

You’ll come away with lasting rituals, frameworks, and perspectives that support you in making the difference only you can make.

How it works

12 one-on-one coaching sessions over 6 months, by phone or voice app

What it’s for

  • Finding your purpose

  • Leveling up

Client Stories

“Coaching gave me permission to do the things I wanted to do—to realize that I often got caught up in doing things because I felt like I should, and to unpack how in the past, the things I did out of interest or desire were always more important than the things I did because other people thought they were important.”

“I started off my coaching journey with Lisa as a frustrated data scientist. With Lisa's coaching, I've been able to redefine my job into something that suits me better. Now, I would define my job as 50% agile coaching, 50% data science - something I never would have thought was possible a year ago!” — Alicia Hickey

“I loved our chapters together and know the whole team feels strongly that you facilitated an open, honest space where we got to know each other in ways we normally wouldn't.” — Emma T.
