About Lisa Tallman
As an organizational leader, I initiate and execute strategies that make work easier; advance employee expertise and confidence; and boost organizational advantage and performance. I engender trust, share expertise and engage stakeholders in solving complex challenges and designing new ways of operating that serve them and the organization.
I embrace the power of technologies and platforms to help employees, customers and partners. That said, people are any organization’s most important resource and are the most important contributor to successes, big and small. I enjoy helping individuals and teams embrace their potential, create and use all available tools to design pathways for their own success and that of the organization every day.
