Business Coaching

Lisa Wiking is a business leadership expert, trainer and published author who's passionate about the fact that life and business success starts with the awareness of purpose.
She believes that understanding our purpose in life and business is the foundation to making great decisions and remaining connected and inspired with what we do on a daily basis.
As the amazing Simon Sinek states, 'people don’t follow you for what you do, they follow you for ‘why’ you do it.’  It’s about engaging your customers, your employees and other stakeholders at an emotional level, (the limbic brain) because that’s the part of the brain that drives behaviour.   This means being real and sharing ‘why’ you do what you do, before sharing ‘what’ you do.
Doing business in this way is more authentic, more aligned and more sustainable.  "It’s easy to do business when you are who you are and not needing to pretend to be something different” she says.
Lisa’s “Why” is to “Inspire Positive Influence to enable Happiness”.  Whether this be one on one with a client, presenting to a group of leaders at a retreat or conference, parenting with her partner, raising her two children or simply chatting with her girlfriends, Lisa believes that positive influence is the key to ensuring happiness and success for all.
“When people feel happy and safe, they do their best work” she says, “Their best work produces maximum productivity” she continues.
There is no doubt, when speaking with Lisa, that she’s completely committed to her purpose and sharing all she knows of her expertise in human behaviour to ensure her clients receive maximum value.
Having recently relocated with her family to live in Bali, Lisa continues to impart her invaluable knowledge resulting from over 20 years experience in business and leadership to clients across the globe.
