“Take Charge of Your View is an accessible, user-friendly, step-by-step guide to create a vision for your career and turn it into action. Drawing from the latest research in positive psychology and neuroscience, it includes many exercises, templates, and opportunities to reflect and plan. Most importantly, it recognizes and acknowledges the emotional overwhelm that career planning often stirs up, and offers holistic strategies and techniques to move past the anxiety and move forward into a brighter future.” -Susan R. Crandall, PhD, Director, Center for Social Policy, University of Massachusetts Boston
“This. Book. Is. Excellent. Using it is like working with a professional coach! I absolutely love the format of the book – guided exercises framed within Lisa Prior’s deep experience as a coach as well as her knowledge and appreciation of practical research. And it is bursting at the seams with rich examples from both Lisa and the people she has coached! I would recommend this book for people at any phase of their career; in fact, I think someone could use it multiple times throughout their careers, because VIEWs will change over time. I highly recommend Take Charge of Your VIEW!” - Jennifer W. Martineau, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Research, Evaluation, and Societal Advancement, Center for Creative Leadership
“Let Lisa Prior be your guide on the six-week journey to self-discovery and discernment. "Take Charge of Your View", like Lisa, is a small package with a big punch. Engaging, provocative, and encouraging, this book provides actionable steps that will challenge and empower you to make good career choices. Make this walk with Lisa to embrace "awe, humility, and hope" as you take in the VIEW. I will...” -Charles D. Allen, COL, US Army retired, Professor, Leadership and Cultural Studies, U.S. Army War College
“A simple and practical guide to navigate a challenging journey: Your Career. A Must Read.” -Dr. Albert Siu, VP and General Manager of PAREXEL Learning and Development, PAREXEL International
“In this book Lisa guides you through a journey into what really makes you tick. You’ll come away with new insights, a fresh perspective, and an enlightened approach to your current work or new venture. After years of corporate assessments, team building, and other work style classifications, it was hard to imagine there would be anything left to learn about myself. Yet Lisa’s book shed new light on known motivations, and even managed to reveal new insights. Don’t just read through this book. Work with it. You’ll be glad you did.” -Ellen DiResta, Product Strategy Advisor and Author
About the Author
Lisa is passionate about her work (20+ years) as a leadership coach and culture change consultant. She understands that leaders at all levels shape the work environment and that leadership and organizational culture go hand in hand. Lisa’s mission: to enable leaders to bring out the best in themselves and their people so they create win-win relationships with one another and the organization.
Whether working with a biotech startup, an established non-profit or a Fortune 500, organizations move through predictable stages of growth or transition. Using custom approaches to address what is needed, Lisa serves as:
- Leadership Coach (one-on-one, senior teams, and assessments)
- Change Consultant (culture, organizational design, and talent development and management)
- Expert Facilitator (board discussions, team development, strategic planning)
- Keynote Speaker (on leadership, teams, executive performance and culture)
Lisa is currently on the Steering Committee of the Executive Development Roundtable at Boston University. At Bank Boston (now Bank of America), she honed her leadership skills as Chief of Staff, Corporate and Community Affairs, where she acted as the business officer for an 80-person, $25 million division of the bank. The group’s best practices won it the US Department of Commerce’s Ron Brown Award for Corporate Responsibility.
She also served in other roles at Bank Boston, including Human Resources Project leader for a major merger. Her research summary of career development strategies was published by Boston University’s Graduate School of Management.
Previous to consulting, she was responsible for leading research projects at Harvard University and served as a resident advisor to undergraduates at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Lisa’s publications include Research in Management Consulting, and her new book on career development, Take Charge of Your VIEW: Career Advice You Won’t Get from Your Boss.
