What Matters to Lisa

As I reflect on my career, it’s clear to me what is most important. The greatest reward and measure of success has come from the relationships I’ve built and from the privilege of leading and developing leaders throughout my career. When a young leader realizes their potential, gains confidence, and accomplishes more than they thought was possible, it brings me tremendous joy. They become a part of something larger than themselves and bring great value to the team and organization

Inspirational Leaders

Bill Colombo, former COO & President of Dick’s Sporting Goods and current Vice Chairman of the Board, led by example and raised the game of everyone around him. As a direct report of Bill’s, I was very fortunate to have an outstanding leader and mentor when I started my professional career. He was honest, inspiring, and treated everyone with respect. He made everyone believe they mattered and were a critical part of the success of the organization – because they were! As a young, impressionable leader in my first job, he worked to build my confidence and he encouraged me to share my opinion even when I wasn’t sure I was experienced enough to provide one. He believed in me, gave me rope, and encouraged me to grow. Bill was my role model for exceptional leadership and I am grateful for the experience of working with him so early on in my career.
