A nationally syndicated columnist, a top selling author and a sought after speaker, Lisa McLeod is a former flunkie for the Fortune 500, a working mother of two and a twenty year marriage veteran who is occasionally finds time for a date with the man she lovingly refers to as her first husband.

Lisa began her career as a sales person for Procter & Gamble. After five years of trolling grocery store aisles - with numerous trainees in tow - Lisa moved into the sales training business. Her corporate clients include Kimberly Clark, Home Depot, Dell Computer, Amgen and Merck.

Unbeknownst to herself and her many seminar attendees, Lisa was gathering material that would later enable her to write her first book, Forget Perfect, now in its 4th printing from Penguin Putnam.

A previous unknown in the publishing world, Lisa’s Forget Perfect message touched a cord with women around the country. She began speaking nationally and now rocks the house everywhere from Pfizer to the Red Hats. Her weekly newspaper column, which began her local paper, is now syndicated around the country.

She has appeared on hundreds of TV shows including Good Morning America, Ali & Jack and major market network affiliates from Atlanta to LA.

She has been seen in major publications like Newsweek, USA Today, O Magazine, the Christian Science Monitor, Glamour and Guideposts, and she has been heard on radio stations everywhere from Phoenix to Philly.

Her passions in life are world peace, pink toe nail polish and the hope that she may one day get caught up on the laundry.

Selling with Noble Purpose
How to Drive Revenue and Do Work That Makes You Proud

video-hands-on-table1We assume that salespeople are primarily motivated by money. We couldn’t be more wrong. Drawing from studies of top performing sales organizations, Lisa reveals why the salespeople who sell with Noble Purpose, those who earnestly and factually understand how they make a difference to their customers, outsell salespeople who are primarily focused on sales targets and money. By attending this program, you will:

Understand what a Noble Sales Purpose is, and how an NSP spells the difference between average-performers and top-performers

Identify how to use NSP to increase your win rate and get customers engaged

Learn techniques to reframe your sales narrative, which will invigorate your organization and garner you internal support

Discover why traditional sales coaching has a chilling effect on sales performance, and how to avoid the fatal mistake that sabotages 90% of sales leaders

Master the 10-Second Game Changer, a powerful mental technique to reset yourself for high stakes selling situations

Leave with concrete strategies for bringing a greater sense of purpose into your work and life

“Selling with Noble Purpose” formats: keynote speech, virtual keynote, 2 hour, half-day or full day workshop.

Persuade with Purpose
How to Use Purpose to be More Persuasive and Influential at Work

We’ve all been there: You present a great idea, it gets rejected, yet two months later someone else presents the same idea and it’s enthusiastically approved.

What happened?

This session is for anyone who needs to take the mystery out of persuasion, so they can get support from colleagues, customers or the boss.

You can’t be successful if you can’t persuade. Drawing from interviews with hundreds of leaders, Lisa reveals the mindsets, skills, and techniques that differentiate the top 2%. In this program you’ll learn:

The fatal mistake most people make when they’re trying to persuade

A powerful technique for garnering support from senior leaders

How to use purpose as a framework to gain agreements quickly and easily

The difference between persuading and manipulating (one sticks, the other doesn’t)

Why two people who use the exact same words get completely different responses

Strategies to master the “your agenda versus my agenda” quagmire

How to be successful in the face of ambiguity and change

Three surprisingly simple things that exceptional communicators do differently than everyone else

Forget Perfect 
How to Bring Purpose and Happiness Into the Life You’ve Already Got

video-city1Based on Lisa’s popular book, Forget Perfect, this touching humorous program is for every woman who has put herself last on her own priority list. A huge hit with philanthropic organizations and volunteer groups, in this speech Lisa reveals:

Why trying to be perfect doesn’t make people like you more, it makes them like you less

Why striving for perfection creates misery, but having a purpose creates happiness

The meaning of life in two words (no joke)

How to enjoy your life even if your house is a mess, your abs are flabby, and you don’t have greeting-card perfect kids
