Talk Like an Inspiring Leader Guide


Hi, I'm Lisa Holden Rovers

Founder of Workplace Matters 


I coach leaders to authentically lead from their strengths and help them create a team culture where people feel valued, make a positive difference in the business, and have a thriving workplace and life!


let's get started

Results you'll get by working together.


Make a positive difference in the workplace while transforming your team's vision into reality.


Improve results and how people feel about their work by helping them connect and work better together. 


Spark a culture where people thrive while contributing to a team and vision they believe in.

How we can work together. 



Leadership has a massive impact on retention, engagement, and ultimately performance. Each leader has a distinct set of strengths, hidden assumptions, and blind spots that impact team results. 

Whether leading an in-person team, virtual team, or somewhere in between, Workplace Matters' coaching and training programs are tailored to help leaders shift from 'team manager' to 'team coach'.

Teamwork has a big impact on our work lives. It must be developed and practiced for a team to effectively work together to achieve its purpose. 

Together, we'll design an in-person or virtual workshop, coaching engagement, or team meeting to elevate your team's cohesion and effectiveness.

Here's a few kind words from clients. 


"The tools and coaching model Lisa taught has made me a better leader.  I am more effective at supporting, motivating, and satisfying my team's needs.  It’s a shift from telling to coaching and guiding others.  It has resulted in improved performance, greater job satisfaction, and employee retention. Lisa is easy to work with and it’s apparent she believes in and uses what she teaches."

Jim Hanson, Engineering Leader


"We needed help with unproductive conflict. Lisa's team coaching empowered our managers to create a more cohesive team that discusses issues openly and works towards common goals. Lisa was able to meet the needs of each personality. She adjusted her interaction to ensure everyone felt heard, understood, and gave their best. Her perceptions and intuition helped the team create a more positive work environment, which became noticeable in all levels in our organization."  

Mickey Greiner, Executive Director


"I find myself consciously thinking about leadership as opposed to having leadership happen in a  passive way. Working with Lisa has opened my eyes to the fact that good leaders work at it and are intentional in their leadership. Being a new executive leader, Lisa's coaching has been a great benefit in terms of reframing my views of what constitutes a leader."

Kate Shaughnessy, Chief Governance and Compliance Officer

Symbolism of the Paint Splatter

Inspired by the artist Jackson Pollack, the paint splatter represents the expression of one’s thoughts, feelings, and actions - a primary focus in coaching conversations. In the image below, the white splatter symbolizes the light that inspiring leaders shine in the workplace. The colour splatters symbolize the magic teams create when they value one another, tap into their unique, individual strengths, and elevate how they work together.
