John F. Kennedy University
Visionaries Speaker Series
TOPIC – Schrodinger’s Cat at Work: Thinking Outside the Box to Bridge Conscious Awareness and Happy Employment

Lisa Wood is a dynamic speaker delivering an engaging and informative talk entitled “Schrodinger’s Cat at Work” to an audience of graduate students from diverse academic backgrounds at JFK University. The cornerstone of Lisa’s strategy to “be the bridge” between financial reward and personal fulfillment through work is to consider one’s own core values and to find ways to express those core values in the work world – either by locating existing companies who share those values, or by starting a business based upon those core values – something Lisa has done successfully and repeatedly.

Lisa’s enthusiasm for expressing one’s core self in the world is contagious!

I invited Lisa to come and speak to a group of women on retreat, as we were focusing on “wisdom and well-being.” The women were delighted and exhilarated by Lisa’s presence, her integration of business and spirituality, and her challenge to them to claim their own power for good in the world.

They left feeling inspired, strengthened, and energized.

Student Testimonials

Lisa, I got the job and for the first time—thanks to being a mom and having that fuel me—and

thanks to you for inspiring me and helping me see my worth and assets; I negotiated HARD for myself. It felt SO good!! And I got everything I asked for in the end!
Every time they came to me with a counter proposal I stuck to my guns while I thought of you and your words of wisdom regarding returning to work and having the time I spend away from my son be something very worth while—both financially and energetically. I also thought about the chapter of your book I read and that connected me to a larger community of women and a movement of women advocating for ourselves and getting paid more. So thank you!

Could not have asked for a better professor with real life experience and she was able to talk to each of us directly with important feedback…only sorry that there is not a part 2 and 3 of the class.
