Where are you getting stuck?
Do you want to develop your people managers?
Right now managers are on the front lines of all of the change and uncertainty happening in the workplace, pushing many to the brink of burnout, or worse… micromanagement.
They’re being stretched in new ways, navigating flexibility and return to office, recession and cutbacks, all while trying to deliver great work and motivate their teams. It’s A LOT.

How about increase motivation and efficiency on your teams?
Got team members believing the myth that good work just gets noticed? Or that feedback is just list of things people don’t like about them? Or that failure should be avoided at all costs, or AT LEAST covered up if it happens? Yep. We’ve all been there.
With teams across any industry and sector having to “do more with less” the time to focus on how to build effective teams is NOW. If you can’t hire more people, and there are only a limited amount of hours in the day, you have to focus on improving *how* work gets done.

Inclusion is More Than a Happy Hour
Real inclusion is more than happy hours and social events, it's in the fabric of how we work. This workshop dives into three foundational areas that create a sense of inclusion on the team, with actionable steps to getting there.
Eager to improve your employee engagement survey results?
Engagement surveys are a company wide opportunity to get real feedback from our teams, but knowing exactly what to action and how can be tough.
A lot of times, we get feedback based on things that leaders and managers have already been working tirelessly to fix, making it hard to know what to change. Or the team compositions and priorities change, and it's hard to understand what worked and what didn’t.
Check out my conversation with Strategic CHRO: Reframing the Conversations at Work for some of my strategies for creating greater motivation on your team.

Targeted Action Planning
Workshop with managers and leaders to understand the results and determine a small set of high impact actions to rollout.
Women are leaving the corporate world in record numbers. Want to make your organization a place where they stay?
The LeanIn + McKinsey & Company Women in the Workplace 2022 Report shows us that women are leaving the workplace in record numbers, citing the “broken rung” in the ladder getting in their way from reaching the next step in their career.
What does this mean? They’re facing stronger resistance in promotion and advancement, aren’t receiving recognition for their work, and don’t feel like their organizations are investing in them.
We can give our women all of the development tools under the sun, but if they don’t feel like their company cares about their success, they’re not going to stay.
My Accelerate Group Coaching Program is aimed at both sides of this equation - supporting women in developing leadership skills and a network of support WHILE demonstrating that their organization is investing in them as a person.
Weaving together stories from my decade navigating the ups and downs of the corporate world, tools from my bestselling book Unstuck, real-time coaching, and exercises to deepen the learning, this program is designed to re-energize women on your team around their goals and confidence in achieving them within your organization.
1:1 onboarding session with each member of the cohort to understand their goals and ensure they get the most from the program.
Eight group coaching sessions diving into a core principle from Unstuck, why we get stuck, and strategies, discussions, and exercises for getting unstuck.
Check ins at regular intervals after the program to navigate what is coming up for people and offer additional strategies and support.
Our free consult call is an opportunity for you to share what's top of mind for you and your team, or where folks are getting stuck and you'd like support, so I can share a few tools or actions you can deploy on your team right away.
Following the call, I'll send you a customized diagnostic including key areas to focus to solve whatever challenge your team is facing.
"Lia was fabulous! She spoke to our group of leaders to frame our forthcoming conversations about Navigating Risk & Reward. She was warm and friendly while her experience and knowledge about workplace realities really showed through. It was exactly what we needed, got the group thinking about — and engaged in — the topic, and ready to explore it together even more in the future. Thank you, Lia!"

"Lia was instrumental in helping our group step away from the day-to-day to help walk through tangible ways of addressing crucial conversations and communication. This was imperative to our business as the team is adjusting to a new performance review system. Lia was made the session relevant to our objectives via stories, tips and workshop sessions. Thank you Lia!"
