In 2018, Technology Partners kicked off a new podcast hosted by Lisa called Something Extra, to show others what it takes to influence, encourage and be a true leader in daily life. She interviews a diverse range of business and cultural leaders from throughout the region and the world on a weekly basis who share what they believe is the “something extra” every true leader possesses that defines them. Lisa will release her 100th episode of Something Extra Thurs, September 10, which averages more than 1,800 listens worldwide each month.
Last year Lisa played a pivotal role in the startup of The Technology Leadership Experience, called The TechLX, in St. Louis. The TechLX puts high-potential IT professionals on the fast-track to developing effective leadership capabilities and business acumen and helps transform participants from solutions providers to strategic business partners and innovation anticipators. More than 90 participants from dozens of St. Louis area companies have participated to date, with more expected to participate later in 2020 and beyond.
Lisa also helps lead her company’s community service outreach through an employee-directed internal committee called L.I.F.T. — an acronym for “Lives Impacted. Futures Transformed.” It is the company’s “giving” arm focusing on basic needs, education, and economic development. Lisa and her fellow employees have partnered with Junior Achievement, Sunshine Ministries, Habitat for Humanity, The Little Bit Foundation, American Red Cross, American Heart Association, Global Hack, St. Louis Food Bank, The Mission Continues, YWCA, and Komen Race for the Cure. Through these groups and others, Lisa has helped support veterans and their families, raised money in support of family adoption, cleaned up summer camps, conducted book drives for underprivileged schools, built homes, spearheaded blood drives, helped students learn to code and much more.
