Traditional definitions and paradigms of what it means to be an effective leader have been upended, some would say permanently, by this year’s multiple crises. Until now, psychological safety in the workplace was not viewed as a leadership imperative nor was its connection to the financial health of organizations well understood. Join us for an in-depth conversation exploring what the ‘impact of everything’ has been on the well-being of those in the C Suite and their stakeholders.

You will hear specific information on the symptoms and drivers of crisis-related thinking and behaviors that can jeopardize the longevity of leadership tenure and organizational sustainability. Recommendations will be provided to help leaders navigate the new, unfamiliar and uncomfortable demands impacting themselves and those they employ.

If an organization can strengthen its internal talent capacity, it can better serve the community and those in need.”

That is Lisa Brown Alexander’s mantra, and she has been beating the drum for it for over 20 years! Driven to serve the often-overlooked human resources needs for the social-impact sector, Lisa set out to build a market where one didn’t exist. She founded Nonprofit HR, the leading talent management firm in the country that works exclusively with the nonprofit sector.

Today, fueled by the passion of 50-plus employees and consultants nationwide, Nonprofit HR is helping many of the nation’s most prominent nonprofit organizations get ahead through smart people management strategies. In the process, they’re changing the way an entire sector thinks about talent and culture.

Lisa’s leadership and the work of her firm have proven that better talent practices can play an integral role in nonprofit success. Nonprofits have benefited from her wealth of knowledge and experience to make their people-driven initiatives successful. Lisa’s goal is to ensure that every Nonprofit HR engagement inspires social sector leaders to strengthen their most important asset: their people.

She mentors companies past traumatic and destabilizing events, workplace abuse, and disastrous communications to regain stability, establish a new normal, and build resilience. Lisa was an employee at the World Trade Center during the 1993 bombing and was still working in NYC during 9/11. She draws from those first-hand experiences of workplace trauma and lessons learned from other workplace tragedies.

Lisa’s work addresses issues that EAP’s, risk management and business continuity services don’t follow disruptive events that impact retention of key talent and organizational longevity. She is a certified Thanatologist with a sub-specialty in trauma, trained counselor, trained mediator, and a crisis communication specialist with 18+ years of professional experience training, consulting, coaching, debriefing, and public speaking.
