Lisa Baker
Leadership Coach


“We all have an area of greatness where our strengths, passions, and purpose converge. When we lead from that extraordinary place, we are our most powerful, authentic selves.”

Lisa is a former corporate executive who worked her way up the ladder at Fortune 500 companies. Her leadership and management skills were highly regarded, and she was widely recognized as a driver of exceptional results. After a 30-year career in corporate America, Lisa retired to pursue what she is most passionate about helping up-and-coming professional women own their power and communicate their worth with confidence so they can dream big and reach their goals.

Lisa has always been a generous and compassionate mentor and champion for women in the workplace, especially women of color. She knows what it takes to get to the top and is aware of the pitfalls so she is uniquely qualified to help high achievers break through any real or perceived barriers to reach those coveted leadership positions. 

Lisa coaches with her whole self and brings everything she’s learned through life, love, and hard work to guide her clients through self-discovery and accountability. Using Positive Psychology principles, Lisa coaches her clients to build on their best qualities to ensure they thrive in leadership and life. She listens more than she talks and communicates candidly, asking deep questions designed to reveal her client’s true strengths, fears, and desired outcomes. 

With her empathetic nature, Lisa makes instant and authentic connections with her clients as they go right to the heart of the matter. She creates a safe space for self-exploration with a results-driven mindset focused on the beautiful future her clients can design for themselves.
