More About the Author

I feel most productive when I catalyze breakthroughs - one-on-one, with leadership teams, and through my writing. My professional career has been devoted to enabling development and success through leadership and internal consulting roles, an individual consulting business and my current position as an OD Practitioner with a world-class health care organization.

I am an expert (and lifelong student) in the areas of organization development, management, leadership, talent management, and personal and organizational success. I have over 25 years experience providing departmental leadership, consulting, training and coaching solutions for manufacturing, health care, high technology, government, and nonprofit organizations. I have written 14 business books and speak on a broad range of topics of interest to leaders and managers.

Over the years I have enjoyed working for companies both large and small, including Black & Decker, Intel, Mead Paper, Amazon.com, Cruise West, Beacon Hotel Corp., and TGI Fridays. Recent consulting clients include GE Aviation, Corbis, MedCentral, MTD Products, Perfetti Van Melle, the Federal Aviation Administration, the City of Seattle and the Royal Thai Government.

I enjoy select opportunities to speak in the US and abroad and have experience working with leaders in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Jamaica, Bhutan, The UK, Brazil, Turkey, and Canada.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Walter H. Bock on May 9, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book promises that you can generate a breakthrough in your life in two weeks or less. That's a pretty big claim. But, in my case, it was true.

When I was trying to figure out how to review a book like this, I decided that the only way was to see if it did what it promised. I chose a business idea that I wanted to generate a breakthrough for. Then I followed the book's program. It worked.

There are three reasons why it worked. The recommendations in it are based on solid, behavioral science principles. There is a specific, but not too specific program for you to follow. And, both the book and the program are short.

The program works because the recommendations in it are based on solid behavioral science principles and human nature. You're asked to do lots of small things, such as actions, sharing, and requests, and do them every day. .

Doing lots of things gives you an emotional investment in the product itself. Because you're going to get lots of "yes's" and successes doing small things, you generate the kind of emotional momentum that's hard to stop.

There's another benefit to all that asking and talking. You wind up with a lot of people who are interested in your project.

Half way through the two weeks, we went to a dinner party. Among the guests was someone I'd talked to about my project. "Hey," he said, "I've been meaning to call you." He launched into an idea to move things forward.

That started a train of conversation at the table that involved others. People contributed ideas and support.

The program works because there is a specific, but not too specific program for you to follow. The author provides you with things to do every day for fourteen days.

This is a fantastic way to look at an issue from a different perspective and change the way you perceive it. The trick is to commit - yes, commit to the work for two weeks without questioning or judging it. You will experience the breakthrough you desire so much. Good luck!

Format: Hardcover
Unlike many other books with similar titles that you find on the self-help aisle of the bookstore, this book is grounded in cold, hard facts and truths.

The two weeks that Lisa talks about is basically the length of time it takes for you to create a habit and stick to it.

The book provides a base of knowledge for the reader to help get your mind into the right frame to make a breakthrough. Not only do you think about things that you can do to reach that breakthrough, you take all the steps necessary to reach that breakthrough.

Absolutely great book. Spend $17 and read this book...it could change your life.

A friend gave me Lisa's book and said it would be relevant to the work I do with leaders. He was right! This book gave me the practical kick in the pants I needed to get started on a goal I've been procrastinating. I'm now going to recommend Two Weeks to a Breakthrough to my clients via my monthly e-tips. Thanks Lisa!
