Lisa X. Walden is a speaker, strategist, and consultant dedicated to helping businesses create authentic, empowering workplaces that don’t inspire the dreaded Sunday scaries. Her presentations deliver action-oriented insights that help people better connect, collaborate, and communicate.

As co-founder of Good Company Consulting, her work is centered on the (strangely revolutionary) concept that people and strategy don’t have to be mutually exclusive. She takes a holistic approach to workplace strategy, keeping human beings - arguably the most valuable resources - at front and center. Lisa’s speeches focus on how to maintain thriving cultures, best-practices for mindful communication practices, and tactics for nurturing the single most important component of a healthy work environment—trust.

She has worked with a broad range of clients and organizations, ranging from architects, to finance, real estate, and hospitality. In her speeches, Lisa strives to inspire mindset shifts by presenting valuable, research-based insights in a way that resonates, engages, and entertains. She weaves in stories, statistics, case studies, and some good old-fashioned self-deprecating humor into each and every one of her presentations.

Lisa is the co-author of Managing Millennials for Dummies and is deep in the trenches of planning her next book. She is a voracious consumer of all business-related books, podcasts, magazines, and think pieces.

 

CREATING A WORKPLACE THAT DOESN’T SUCK

Who is this for? Leaders, managers, new hires and everyone in between.

Everyone deserves an amazing place to work… so why do so many people dread getting out of bed in the morning? While you’ve probably heard the phrase “culture eats strategy for breakfast,” rarely do organizations focus their time, money, and resources on improving their workplace culture. This presentation examines the key elements necessary for building and maintaining a thriving culture. It gives leaders and managers a cultural playbook to assess if their own culture is designed to engage, motivate, and empower their employees. By unpacking the most pertinent organizational design trends, what’s worked (and also what hasn’t), and exploring basic human motivations, Lisa aims to give fresh insights and tools so you can create a workplace that makes people want to spring out of bed in the morning.

 

COMMUNICATING SO PEOPLE CAN HEAR YOU

Who is this for? Leaders, managers, new hires, and everyone in between.

In today’s workplace culture, the loudest person in the room tends to be the one who is heard. In meetings, the person who can categorize their thoughts fastest is labeled a rock star. In digital communication, one person groans at the sight of a text message but another cringes while listening to a voicemail. In an instant, how we’re trying to come across and what we’re trying to say gets misinterpreted and then we’re falling behind, getting passed over for promotions, and worst of all, becoming frustrated with our fellow colleagues, managers, or leaders. This presentation will highlight the top three areas where messages get lost in translation and people fail to get their message across. Expert communicator, speaker, and storyteller Lisa presents actionable takeaways so that everyone can actively listen, speak confidently, and be really understood.

 

THE NEW LEADERSHIP MINDSET

Who is this for? CEOs, leaders, and entrepreneurs

The tides have changed, and so have perceptions about what makes for a good job, a good organization, and a good leadership methodology. Yet many leaders continue to operate with a workplace ethos that just isn’t resonating in our modern working world. The result is an environment rife with frustrated employees, high attrition rates, and broken lines of communication. Only the leaders who are paying attention and adapting are creating sustainable, thriving, happy workplaces. Through this presentation, we present how the best leaders in the biz are flipping the script and choosing…

• Trust and transparency over strict rules and regulation
• Radical candor over formal, diplomatic messaging
• Listening to understand over listening to respond
• People and empathy over dollars and strategy
