Empowering  You



Speaking Coach

Thanks for stopping by….

Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is? …. or what you are put on this earth to do?

If you are like most people, you may ponder these questions A LOT!  Several years ago, my coach asked me this question:

How are other people’s lives better after interacting with you?”

The answer to this question led to the discovery of my purpose. (In fact, your purpose can be discovered as you answer this question for yourself.)

Purpose is connected with identity and passion, and often gets confirmed through others as you step forward and offer your unique gifts to the world around you. True freedom is experienced as you embrace the real you- who you are created to be, engage in the process of transformation and allow the fullness of God invade every area of your heart

Lisa Like other women leaders, I felt incompetent when I first found myself in a position of influence. The sheer joy of following God and seeing lives transformed kept me moving forward. This also gave me the motivation to seek out mentors and coaches to help me expand my capacity and embrace my uniqueness.

As I passed on to others all that I learned,  I saw countless men and women walk away feeling strengthened in their confidence and understanding of their true identity, and better equipped to pursue their calling with renewed focus.   Early on I realized that your positive influence as a leader is directly linked to your commitment to embrace the ongoing process of your own personal transformation.

 I am grateful for my mentors along the way, who believed in me and challenged me to step forward to engage opportunities with courage and faith. These opportunities led me out of my comfort zone and into fast-track learning zones!! I learned very quickly how to “get comfortable with being uncomfortable.” And the truth is, that’s when I grew the most- when I was way out of my league. That’s one of the reasons that I have come to value and embrace  “change” so much.  Over the years, I have discovered that true success and fulfillment comes when you courageously step forward and pursue fullness of life in God. This includes not settling for status quo but rather living true to who you are designed to be- the Real You as outlined in Colossians 3:3.

 Lisa is the Founder and CEO of  Real U Institute, a professional coaching company that focuses on training emerging and visionary women leaders to lead with passion, purpose and transformational impact.

REAL U Speaking Institute™ was created in 2008 to meet the growing demand for training women leaders who are able to lead with strength, integrity, and wholeness in Christ. REAL U™ Coaching programs are designed to strengthen women leaders in the areas of Relationships, Spiritual Engagement, Authenticity, Leadership style, and Unique contributions to the people they serve.  This includes equipping women to speak with clarity,  confidence, and skill while staying true to her authentic, feminine self.   You may be like most women and have put your dreams on hold,  lost your voice along the way, or simply have never been given permission to speak publicly.

In the early 1990’s,  when Lisa first started speaking and training leaders, she quickly became aware of the challenges of being a woman in leadership and the lack of mentors and role models to learn from. She did whatever it took to be around such women,  to be coached and mentored by them, and invest time and money into expanding her personal capacity and sharpening her communication effectiveness. Today Lisa is passionate about working with women who are committed to embracing personal growth, becoming a positive voice of influence and developing the public speaking skills needed to go beyond just conveying information to evoking transformation in the hearts and minds of audience members.

Lisa is often referred to as a Transformation Catalyst and Communication Expert.  Her ability to engage audiences in transformational thinking helps create shifts in mindsets and perceptions and inspires others to take action.

In addition to being a Speaker, Executive & Personal Life Coach and Certified World Class Speaking Coach in Beaumont, AB, Lisa is also a best-selling author.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is an emerging profession that has the power to help people transform their personal and professional lives. It is focused on helping people get unstuck and become free to lead the life they are designed for. A coach provides skilled teaching and training to help individuals get clear on their identity, achieve specific goals, such as expanding their career capacity, improving relationships, overcoming fear, and achieving personal dreams. Positive psychology is the scientific study of what happens when things go right in life. Lisa’s coaching combines her training in spiritual direction, communication, positive psychology and  REAL U™ leadership blueprint.

In every season of life, Lisa has discovered there are 5 important keys to unlocking a richer, fuller life. These keys form the foundation of all she does and the values of her company.

Our Unique Culture

REAL U™ is an acronym that represents the mission of REAL U Inc™  and the guiding principles that undergird the company culture and all that we offer.

R- Relationships that engage the heart. Meaningful connections are key to thriving in life and successfully fulfilling your life goals and dreams.This requires a willingness to connect wholeheartedly and with integrity.

Whether you want to go to the next level in personal, or professional growth,  your relationships  play a key role. Surrounding yourself with people who are visionaries and promote faith, optimism and truth, helps to  promote a healthy environment to thrive. You can not walk in the fullness of your capacity and achieve your dreams by yourself. Key relationships include, with God, with yourself, and with family and close friendships.

E-  Embracing change as your friend. By learning to engage the process of change and transformation, you will discover the freedom to embrace fullness over perfection and  experience a richer, more fulfilling life.

Choosing to have a growth mindset in all aspects of life, and learning from the disappointments and challenges you face, will strengthen and nurture a resilient and powerful spirit, and refine your character.

A – Authentic communication. The health of relationships will be determined by the health of the communication. Choosing to live authentically, including being honest, vulnerable, and compassionate while maintaining integrity  and aligning your actions to your core values, passions, identity  and strengths, will position you to fulfill your life purpose, and achieve optimal performance and productivity more consistently. This kind of communication goes beyond simply exchanging information to having deeper, more meaningful connections with each other.

Organizations have discovered that cultivating a culture of authenticity, positive emotion, and trust leads to increased performance and productivity.

L – Leadership .  Being fully engaged requires courage and commitment to living true to who you are in every situation and creating a safe place for others to do the same. Authentic leaders make room for people to ask questions, explore possibilities and encourage them to function in their areas of greatest strength and passion. Listening to not only their words , but the heart message being conveyed makes others feel loved and valued. Leadership becomes transformational when people are empowered to go farther in life than they thought possible, and are equipped and released to offer their unique contributions to the world.

Being intentional and aligning your life’s goals to your unique calling will lead to increased fulfillment, and sustained happiness, for you and for those you lead.

U – Unique Contributions. Part of your life purpose involves understanding your unique combination of strengths, gifts, skills, personality traits, and experiences. This combination makes up your unique signature offering (USO™), and as you seek to add value to the people around you by contributing from your USO™, you suddenly find yourself fulfilling your unique purpose on the earth and experiencing greater levels of “flow” in your daily actions. As you become freer to operate from this place, you become a catalyst for those around you to do the same.
