"I was referred to Lisè Schwartz at a time in my career when I was at a decision point. Lisè worked closely with me to help me bring my true ambition in to focus, tying my interests, experience and skills together. Her vast industry experiences proved valuable, contributing to quicker results. She was sensitive but directive and quickly re-constructed my LinkedIn profile and resume so that they fit my new objectives and presented a polished and professional profile."

"Lisè was the perfect person for the job. She quickly assessed the situation, developed a plan, enlisted and empowered those around her to accomplish the goals. Her positive impact is still being felt within the organization."
"Lisè exemplifies professionalism and has an impressive work ethic. She is exceptionally bright, has phenomenal organizational skills, and is an excellent communicator both verbally and in her written work. Lisè is a collaborator and brings creativity, enthusiasm and commitment to any job that she undertakes. It has been an honor to work with Lisè and I highly recommend her."
"Lisè is a big picture thinker who can take even the most challenging assignments and chunk them down to create successful outcomes. She has handled huge bank mergers, providing the right training to the right people at the right time (with tight deadlines and a scarcity of resources). She has introduced state-of-the-art technology and multi-media to organizations, partnering with senior management to embrace change and increase widespread communications. Lisè is a skilled leader who knows how to hire and develop talented people, creating incentive programs and customized work situations to keep employees engaged, inspired, and working at maximum capacity. I have high regard for Lisè Schwartz- she is smart, experienced, and driven."
"Lisè Schwartz is a top-flight Human Resources and Training Professional with a formidable track record in Learning and Organizational Development. A highly accomplished leader and program director, I have had the pleasure of working on more than a dozen projects with Lisè through the years; many of them award-winners.
I had the distinguished privilege of recruiting Lisè for AT&T Digital Life Smart Home and Security System launch of training nationwide; Lisè joined the team early and was a mainstay of the program’s success, from the initial T3 through the national ramp-up — an extraordinary performer across all circumstances.
Her expert navigation in the early days of the launch was remarkable, particularly as information was moving at the speed of light while changes occurred even faster!
Lisè's approach to any project is meticulous, tenacious, and her pleasant demeanor, grace under fire, and everlasting sense of humor are the stuff champions are made of.
I recommend Lisè with all my heart."
"Lisè is a high energy, creative thinker who consistently looks outside the box for solutions. She is a true leader. I had the opportunity to work with Lisè as a business partner who was interested in creating partnerships to enhance the organization by sharing successes, lessons learned, and to work together across lines of business to reduce redundancies. She fosters valuable relationships across lines of business. Partners find her straightforward to work with and combined projects effortless and successful. Then I had the honor to have her as my manager. As a manager Lisè challenges her team to be innovative and creative with solutions. She holds her teams accountable for meeting the organizational goals while providing them the opportunity to excel. Her coaching style is such that you continue to strive to do better and learn more. She has so much knowledge of leadership, management, training and development, and organizational development that any company would find her to be an asset. I would be more than happy & honored to work with her again in the future."
