Speaker Bio
Lisa Goldstein Graham, Ph.D.

Lisa is a Jewish vegetarian married to a carnivore of Southern Baptist heritage. (She
passionately believes that diversity is the spice of life.) Ten years ago, she and her husband ran
a social group for couples who were "childless by choice." These days, she spends most of her
free time with their two daughters. (She's really glad they changed their minds about having
kids . . . most of the time. :)

She's fascinated by each person's story and can count on her husband to plead, "please don't
start conversations with random people today" as they enter any situation that involves
standing in line, sitting at tightly packed restaurant tables, waiting for a movie to start, standing
in an elevator, etc. She is a continuous learning junkie with books overflowing from every shelf
in the house and yet-to-read sections of the NYT scattered throughout. She has started
countless Coursera courses (and has even finished a few). Her email box overflows with
interesting newsletters, and she is almost always participating in a personal and/or professional
growth program. (Right now, it's Tiago Forte’s Build a Second Brain program, the Institute of
Coaching’s continuous education programming, and Khe Hy’s Annual Review. She highly
recommends all three.)

If Lisa wasn't an organizational psychologist (a job she loves), she would be a professional
makeup artist. Or maybe a children's librarian. The common thread connecting these three
career paths is the desire to help others manifest the very best versions of themselves,
recognizing and capitalizing on what makes them unique.
She is a huge fan of parenthetical asides. (Obviously.)
