Everything DiSC® expert, Lisa Downs, ACC, CPLP, M.S. Ed.

Know any technical leaders in the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) professions who could use some help with their "people skills?" Do you lead a team in a technical industry that needs to improve its productivity, collaboration, or communication? If so, Downs Leadership can help.

Leveraging the Everything DiSC® suite of products, Lisa Downs offers 1:1 leader coaching, team workshops, and consulting services to increase productivity, collaboration, and innovation, specifically targeting technical professionals in industries such as IT, engineering, finance and accounting, telecommunications, professional services, and healthcare. Her goal is to empower "geeks" to become great leaders and to lead great teams.

With 14+ years of experience working in STEM industries, Lisa uses data as a foundation for her work with her clients through the use of Everything DiSC® assessment so they have solid information to go by to set meaningful, measurable goals and achieve results. Her approach is tailored to those who have highly technical backgrounds and are more "left brained" in nature to support them as they grow in refining and further developing their people, especially if they are looking to build trust on a team, lead and manage a new team, or are in a larger leadership role than what is familiar and comfortable.

So you get what you need and pay for, Lisa looks to build partnerships with her clients and offers a menu of options of proposed solutions using a value-based pricing model that typically includes three packages to choose from, based on her conversations with you. No hourly or daily rates like you're paying for parking! It's about ensuring you get the results you need.

Contact Lisa today to schedule a free consultation call to discuss your situation and how Everything DiSC® can transform technical leaders and teams.
