Elizabeth Lions is a well known coach in corporate America, and while many of her presentations are on career management or leadership, this talk is a little different. Thriving (and surviving) the workplace isn’t easy, and on bad days it can be tough to focus and perform. In this presentation, Elizabeth gives tips and tricks on:
– What makes people happy at work – How to work with someone you don’t like – How to work effectively with that jerk at work – Changing your perceptions and widening your focus – Seeing work as service – not just a paycheck – Is it time to find a new job – or a new perspective?

Working for You Isn’t Working For Me.” Her third book will be released on leadership and is entitled, “Hear Us Roar – Unapologetic Women Leading in Corporate America.” She has designed and developed leadership, career courses, webinars and even a radio show entitled, “Leadership Lessons from the Lioness,” featured on Plaid for Women.

An expert adviser on career conundrums, Elizabeth has been quoted in Yahoo, The Ladders, and Dice job boards. Her words have reached as far as the front page of the Philadelphia Tribune, PBS, CBS Money Watch, Dale Carnegie and John Tesh’s blog.
