Here at Fierce, we honor a person once a month with the coveted title of Fierceling of the Month. The qualification for a Fierceling is someone who has been nominated by peers for exceptionally exhibiting the fierce values and the 7 principles of our work. There are some great internal perks including choosing your favorite restaurant to cater a company-wide lunch. Each month I look forward to interviewing these amazing people.
This month, I had the honor to connect with Lisa Colvin.
Why did you come to work here?
I believe in the concepts that Fierce teaches. As a previous Director of Learning & Development, I saw the impact it made on leaders and how they approached their role and relationships differently after attending the fierce workshop.
What are some responsibilities for your role?
Develop relationships with Global leaders within HR, OD and Talent Management to recommend and assist in the implementation and deployment of fierce programs. I also help align our client’s leadership competencies to the appropriate fierce learning programs and work with leaders to reinforcement the learning.
What’s the coolest thing you are currently working on?
I’m currently on a client’s Supplier Diversity Council, and it’s been fun to meet other diversity companies and align with larger Global Diversity and Inclusion leaders. I’m also deploying all of our fierce programs to a very large client in Latin America, and that’s been very interesting.
What is your favorite thing about working at Fierce?
I love learning, and I’m constantly involved and learning about our client’s leadership strategies. It’s fascinating to see what skills and behaviors organizations are focused on developing for leaders at different levels, and within different industries. It’s exciting to see lives change and leaders becoming more effective because of the work we do. I’ve heard some impactful stories and have personally grown being a part of the organization.
When you’re not at Fierce, what are you most likely doing?
Spending time with family and friends. I love to run, hike, and garden. Oh, and I really enjoy good food and wine with friends.
What fierce principle are you working on this month?
Obey your instincts.
What inspires you?
My daughter inspires me. She’s an optimist. She remains hopeful in all of life’s joy and challenges.
