Hi, I'm Lisa Nolan and I'm a former nurse and midwife, now an accredited coach specialising in resilience, leadership and confidence.

I work with people from all walks of life who are overwhelmed with responsibilities and sometimes very 'busy' burning out.  I help them manage their stress, harness their strengths and build resilience so they can easily handle the challenges of life and work. 

No matter what’s going on for you, it is possible to achieve some balance and equilibrium in your life, but it will require some thought, focus, planning and then constant vigilance on your part.

Because change is not easy and habits are often very well cemented into our lives, this membership site aims to give you plenty of resources in lots of different formats, so that you can access what you need when you need it, and you can dip in and out whenever you like.  The resources are categorised to help you zone in on specific tips or tools that will help you manage whatever your current challenge is.

Resilience is something that we all have, whether we realise it or not! But it’s like a muscle – if we work consistently in small doses to strengthen it, it will serve us better when we really need it.

If you have people who depend on you, whether that’s family, employees, colleagues or investors, it’s not just your right to look after yourself, it’s your responsibility so that you can continue to do the work you need to, but in a sustainable way so that you not only avoid becoming overburdened or burned out, but also so that YOU thrive every day, enjoying your life and reaping the benefits of your work, whatever that looks like for you.

This membership site is the next best thing to having your own resilience trainer. By signing up you will have immediate access to my signature resilience frameworks, tools and exercises and reminders to mind yourself!  

When you sign up you will have an option to sign up to 'The Way of the Quiet Leader' newsletter which includes themes like Resilience and Leadership.

Feedback is always welcome and I don't bite (!) so please let me know  if you have any suggestions for this site.  

I look forward to helping you thrive!

Warmest wishes,

Your Coach,
