My name is Lisa Mitchell and I am the Principal of Green Apple Consulting.
A certified Leadership Coach (ACC), I help high-achieving, overwhelmed leaders get clear on priorities AND lose the overwhelm.
I am also a Master Facilitator and Talent Management Consultant, helping progressive organizations create a powerful employee and customer experiences through the design and facilitation of high-impact leadership training programs and strategies.
Why work with me? What do I bring to the table? I bring over 20 years’ experience as a Corporate Leader and Executive. I get it. I am known for my strategic yet highly practical approach. Genuine and empathetic, I listen closely and ask GREAT questions to help both you and me figure out what you need and want to accomplish. Then I help you get there through strong process and facilitation skills.
I believe the employee experience drives the customer experience – and that a strong employee experience is cultivated through mindfully-built practices around attraction, recruitment, onboarding, and people development.
I honed my skills in progressively senior HR and Organizational Development roles in large Canadian and Global companies. My industry experience covers contact centres, outsourcing, finance, retail, and senior’s housing (a blend of healthcare and hospitality). In my last corporate role, I was Vice President, Talent Management of a large Canadian organization with over 13,000 employees.
When not coaching and consulting with my incredible clients, you can find me enjoying life at home with my amazing son, husband and senior citizen dad, digging into my latest book, or planning our next trip!
Why the name “Green Apple”? I facilitate learning for my clients both as a Coach and as a Facilitator. Few things are more symbolic of learning than a beautiful, crisp, whole apple. And green is the colour of growth, energy and vitality – key outcomes of learning and coaching done well!
