Lisa Withrow did a great job speaking to the Philadelphia Society of People and Strategy – South Jersey LAN about Leading in a VUCA World today! She created great energy in applying a Polarity Tool that was new to many of the participants. Her shared expertise and lots of insightful information provided a framework for not just surviving, but thriving in all of the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. There is light in the darkness and clarity in the murky depths. Thank you, Lisa! I look forward to partnering with you again!

With Lisa as my coach, I found myself uncovering personal insights and practical takeaways that had not surfaced independently. As a leader and professional with a fast paced schedule, I may not stop for lunch or a full night’s sleep let alone take such needed, essential time to focus on myself, recalibrate, and revisit my goals and needs. The time with Lisa provided a valuable, much needed pause. She seemed to naturally and intuitively support where I needed to be, in parallel with challenging me to propel forward or reframe my experience to meet my intentions for our coaching sessions.


Very recently, I hit a very difficult vocational cross-road, demanding that I make life-altering decisions. Dr. Withrow agreed to accompany me on that tricky, decisional path and thanks to her competent and compassionate guidance, I was able to make the right turn. She just knows how to pull the difficult truth out of you; and when you experience that, you know you have been blessed with the guidance of a master coach.
