Pasbjerg's New Blog:
is an executive and coach, trainer and presenter with more than
twenty years of consulting and leadership experience working in
the areas of health care, business, non-profits and education.
Background and Leadership Roles:
completing her graduate work at the University of Michigan, Lisa
served as the executive director and President/C.E.O. of several
non-profit agencies, including an international relief organization.
In this position, she supervised the staff and operations, and oversaw
the provision in any given year of $40-60 million of medical supplies,
equipment and pharmaceuticals to those most in need in many of the
poorest areas of the world. In this role and those that followed
she honed her excellent skills and knowledge as a manager and a
leader. She has also worked in key management positions in several
large multi-site outpatient clinics, both private for-profit and
non-profit hospital-based. Finally, her experience includes work
in three health care systems, as well as a number of businesses.
to Executive Coaching and Training:
a long-time interest in creative and innovative leadership guided
by vision and heart, Lisa came to executive coaching through her
work in management and leadership, and her nearly 20 years as a
psychotherapist. The clients most frequently referred to her have
been physicians, executives and other high-level professions, because
they appreciated not only her expertise as a clinician, but also
her broad knowledge and understanding of the pressures and challenges
inherent in their work and personal lives.
a highly accomplished clinician who supervised hundreds of other
psychotherapists over the years, Lisa maintained a private therapy
and supervision practice, parallel to the positions described above,
since 1988. Attracted to the coaching model because of its focus
on empowerment and building on strengths, she sought additional
training as a coach for her target audience to help them improve
their career performance, develop their true leadership potential
and create for each their most successful possible life.
therapy, there is no stigma associated with coaching, and
capable, talented people see it as a positive, rather than as a
way to “fix” a problem. Clients see coaching as a way to get even
better at areas of competency, and, as a way to reach their career
and personal goals more quickly and easily.
largely in recent years on building her executive coaching business,
Lisa finds that her in-depth skills in understanding people and
what motivates them to be successful have served her as well here
as they have in all of her previous leadership roles.
Teaching and Presenting:
teacher prior to graduate school, Lisa has held adjunct faculty
positions over the years at many colleges and universities, including
the University of Michigan where she has taught graduate coursework.
As a frequent presenter and interviewee over the course of her career
for television, radio and newspapers, Lisa greatly enjoys sharing
her interest, excitement and knowledge with others.
addition to her degrees and licensure, Lisa holds the DCSW,
the highest national credential in her field, and is a member of
ICF, the International
Coach Federation, (the most highly regarded and the only independent
accrediting organization for coaches) she adheres to their high
standards of quality and ethics. She combines all these skills,
credentials and life experience with her coach-specific training
and certification through Mentor
Coach, an ICF accredited program, to bring her clients the extraordinary
level of wisdom, depth and expertise that creates an exceptionally
powerful coaching/client relationship.
