Lisa is a Resilience Coach and Executive VA based in Co Monaghan. Originally a nurse and midwife, she has worked in a diverse range of clinical settings including street clinics in Calcutta, private hospitals in London and general practices.
The coaching wing of the business (www.aslancoaching.ie) provides coaching and training in the areas of Resilience, Career, Business, Parenting and Leadership. Her coaching practice is underpinned by a deep knowledge of how physical and mental health is woven into every aspect of our personal and working lives. This insight enables her to help clients recognise and manage stress, make their health and wellbeing the cornerstone of every aspect of their lives, ground themselves and their leadership practices in their core values, reacquaint themselves with their life purpose, and design and implement meaningful changes that will last long after the coaching process has ended. Through her Resilience of Aslan suite of programmes of coaching, training and books she helps her clients to develop deep and embedded personal resilience using techniques based on neuroscience and human physiology. Her Leadership Development 1:1 Coaching Programme for Nurses and Midwives is accredited for 10 CEUs from the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland.
Lisa also provides Executive VA and Programme Management services for self-employed coaches and healthcare professionals (www.virtualadmin.ie). With over 16 years as a Virtual Administrator (even before the term ‘VA’ was coined!) as well as administrative and governance roles in the healthcare, education and charities sectors, she is an effective multi-tasker, admin solution provider, right hand woman and an all-seeing second set of eyes on behalf of her clients, who rely on her to get things done and who [thankfully] love her nit-picking tendencies!
Lisa has a special interest in health literacy and loves to combine her nursing and coaching knowledge with I.T. skills to design creative ways to fill the gaps between what healthcare professionals say and what their patients hear. She is a regular contributor to nursing and medical journals, websites and blogs, writing about new approaches and technology that enhance health literacy and inspire the motivation that’s needed to self-manage one’s health.
