Executive Coaching

I started working with an executive coach named Ryan Lisk in February 2017.  Our hospital invested in the coaching to raise the leadership capacity of high potential leaders.  Ryan’s style fit exactly what I needed. I would describe him as professional yet conversational.  I saw the coaching as a self-awareness concept.  He awakened the sleeping dog in me and motivated me to become the best version of myself.  I was open to identifying areas for improvement and becoming more of a complete leader as 100% of my results are incumbent on other people.  After 6 months of working together, I adopted several of Ryan’s RealTime Coaching concepts including my favorite, “asking one more question”.  My leadership legacy is to have my staff say, “He gets me and what I’m trying to do.” Ryan got me and what I was trying to do and he delivered results.  In December, our hospital was voted a Best Places To Work and I was awarded the first ever Director of The Year.  Ryan’s executive coaching process had a positive effect on me, and I definitely recommend him to others.
