Career & Professional Develoment Coaching


 Be The CEO of Your Career

“Navigating through a career change can be scary and overwhelming. If you are looking for someone to guide you through the process, look no further – Lisa is an amazing resource! She not only gave me the information and tools I needed to successfully market my skills and experience in a different field, she also made me step out of my comfort zone and instilled in me a confidence that I could be successful in any field I chose. Lisa patiently helped me find direction and focus, broke the transition into manageable steps, and showed me how to strategically network. Without her help, I don’t know that I could have taken the leap, and I am so glad I did.”      -Ashley N.


LBF Strategies empowers people to go confidently toward their dreams by helping them understand their gifts and make meaningful connections.

Through her many years as a recruiter, and driven by her life-long gift and passion for helping others reach their true potential, Lisa Frank has developed an expertise in working with people of all professional levels and life stages to discover career paths, navigate the job search process, attain work-life balance, launch businesses, and make smoother life transitions. Because personal and professional lives are so interconnected, Lisa offers her clients a holistic coaching experience.



LBF’s primary goal is for our clients to achieve the clarity, confidence and the tools they need to be the CEOs of their careers.

Our programs are designed to help our clients better understand what they have gained through their professional journeys thus far, determine how to leverage their backgrounds and accomplishments for the next step, focus in on the components of the role/career they are moving toward (not just away from!), and, ultimately, develop a branding and marketing plan that is in alignment with their skills, strengths and professional value. Coaching programs are customized to meet the needs of each client.



To start, each client completes an initial assessment that sheds light on the specifics around career/life ambitions, accomplishments, and barriers to success. This helps to better define a plan of action for our work together.

We will continue with weekly, one-hour sessions. You will receive homework to complete that encourages you to be introspective and take action between sessions. From our work together, you can expect to:

  • Uncover ideal roles, career paths and passions through
    introspection, assessments & exercises
  • Identify short and long-term goals and develop action-oriented
    plans to achieve them
  • Develop your professional “brand”
  • Strengthen your networking skills
  • Gain tips to navigate workplace politics
  • Strengthen management and leadership skills
  • Optimize your print and online marketing materials
    (resumes, cover letters, online profiles, etc.)
  • Design and apply a strategic, tangible approach to the
    job search process
  • Receive 1-on-1 interview preparation and feedback
  • Learn how to effectively manage job offer negotiations


Over the years, LBF has had the opportunity to work with a variety of professionals from all over the world! But, don’t just take our word for it.
