Lisa Tilstra

Lisa has been working in the field of Emotional Intelligence (EI), an area of specialization for her coaching and training practice, since 2012. She is a master trainer of the EQ-i 2.0 and EQ 360 suite of assessments and the Team Emotional and Social Intelligence Inventory (TESI 2.0). Lisa has worked at every level of corporations helping them professionalize through improving their understanding of the impact emotions have in the workplace, the importance of emotional management for leaders, and the daily impact of emotionally intelligent teams on an organization's bottom line. She has partnered with Kandidata Asia and EQ Europe, two of the leading consulting firms for EI in Asia and Europe, since 2013.

Originally from the United States, Lisa has lived and worked in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, and, currently, the Netherlands. Her work extends around the globe as an Adjunct Instructor for the U.S. Department of State's Foreign Service Institute, as well as having served individual coaching clients from over 15 countries, conducting training in over 20 countries, and having participants in her courses from over 50 countries. Lisa's cross-cultural experiences uniquely qualify her to provide EI training to these diverse groups and teams.

In addition to her EI work, Lisa is a trainer of the Pearman Personality Integrator, an active user of the MBTI suite of assessments, the DiSC tools, the Prepare-Enrich Inventory, and the Leadership Communications Inventory.

Lisa summarizes her work via a quote by George Eliot: "What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?" The work of EI opens doors to helping individuals, leaders, managers, and teams make life less difficult for themselves, those they work with, and their friends and family. The effects of well-understood emotions has far reaching effects for good in the world.

Lisa is married to John, a US Diplomat. Together, they enjoy rock climbing, paragliding, sailing, outdoor adventuring, travel, and managing a small real estate investment business. Her online school, eWorks, is the premier virtual training center for Emotional Intelligence.
