Lisa HoffmanLisa Hoffman brings 30 years of experience and success to nonprofit fund and board development, facilitation, and coaching.

Grounded in practices of deep listening, respect, and collaboration, Lisa’s approach begins with clearly understanding an organization’s culture, needs and issues. Partnering with her clients, she determines how to effectively tackle challenges ranging from raising more money, to designing a dynamic and productive board-staff retreat, to helping executive directors, development professionals and board members hone their skills and fulfill their leadership potential. She then rolls up her sleeves and gets to work.

As an ordained Zen priest, Lisa integrates compassion, awareness, and leaving ego at the door into her coaching and consulting practice. She also teaches mindfulness and meditation, working with groups and offering individuals spiritual guidance. Lisa’s passion is to frame classic teachings in ways that are relevant and helpful to the complexities and challenges of 21st century life, from how to navigate complicated personal and professional relationships to handling the demands of 24/7 communications and information overload.

All meetings, trainings and facilitations can be conducted virtually.
