Speaker Biography

Lisa Robyn Wood

The Middle Manager Coach, GRIP Coaching Limited.

Being a Manager Shouldn’t Be Sh*t.

I grew my career within the energy sector, enjoying several management positions across a range of departments including customer services, process improvement, contract management, and finance, before being promoted to a senior middle management role within metering operations. This promotion triggered imposter syndrome which motivated me to employ a personal coach.

Coaching reconnected me with my confidence, self-belief, and value, and this strengthened relationship with myself enabled me to progress my career into areas I would not have felt capable of attempting prior to my experience. It is this power that I’m on a mission to share with as many managers and leaders as I can in my own coaching practice as The Middle Manager Coach.

I don’t think being a manager should be sh*t and so I work with middle managers, who work in the most pressured and conflicted layer in any business, to embrace their roles with energy and enjoyment, to get a grip of their personal development and growth, and connect with their confidence and capabilities, to ensure that they thrive and don’t get caught in the crap trap.

I help individuals and organisations to make effective and healthy management a reality for themselves, their people, and their business, by providing 1-2-1 coaching and training for their middle managers and teams.

I have been privileged to work with multiple managers and leaders across a range of organisations, including Viridor, Floodre, Suntory, HSBC, Camelot, Burberry, and Swarovski, as well as small businesses and entrepreneurs.

I’m qualified in Corporate & Executive Coaching, Personal Performance Coaching, NLP, and DISC; all through The Coaching Academy and with each diploma accredited by the ICF.

I currently split my time between the Kent coast and Cape Town in South Africa with my husband Dom and our Springer Spaniel Alfie.
