And in the workplace, it seriously impacts our ability to adapt and innovate. Lisa's Master's degree, experience running an Entrepreneur Development Programme, and the Adaptor Factor workshop have reinforced this.
Lisa has experienced her fair share of stress and turmoil. Some was outside of her control. Her son almost died from meningitis. She lost her home, her marriage, her father, her job, and was injured in a motorcycle accident.
Lisa also created change in her life - successfully shedding 26kgs, and not drinking alcohol for 4 years. She moved 13 times in two years, downsized to just two boxes of possessions; and started a business.
This journey has helped her develop the ability to navigate and drive change which has made her more confident, resourceful, resilient and happy. And she wants to use what she's learnt to help others.
