Lisa Ferguson headshotLisa Ferguson is going to be a busy woman during Market. She is offering a RISE, a StrengthsFinder workshop on Monday, April 20th.  Lisa discovered StrengthsFinder® nearly five years ago and it quite literally EVERYthing changed. She successfully shifted services, people and processes around her top strengths at the same time as meeting the new way interior design clients want to do business.  After significant changes in her business resulted in less hustle, more profit, Lisa invested in becoming a fully trained facilitator for StrengthsFinder® to empower and equip others to also reach their full potential.



The result is a tactical, practical and inspirational  full day workshop, Rise.  Interactive and customized to meet the six participants’ specific goals using Gallup’s science based StrengthsFinder® assessment and post it notes,  Lisa will help you recreate your business around You.  Click HERE For more details or to Register.
