Who is Lisa Wiking?
Over the last 20 years I’ve been totally obsessed with business and how different elements whether present or missing, impact the business’ results. As the saying goes “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail”. It’s never been truer in the business world. It’s not your responsibility to know everything as the ‘business owner’ but it is your responsibility to find out.
My experience ranges in a number of different businesses and in a variety of leadership roles. I have a great passion for ensuring that business owners are able to provide a safe and positive work environment for current and future employees. This stems from my own negative experience some 25 years ago. I know the impact this has on the business results as it made over $140,000 difference on the bottom line to the business I took over.
I am an author, coach & trainer and am passionate about helping business owners through one on one coaching, delivering workshops and trainings, my online programs and conference presentations. What lights me up is to help business owners build, improve and grow a successful business which includes a positive workplace culture.
I believe developing and establishing good practice as a business owner is a skill that will repay you tenfold. From your own personal happiness to the privilege of leading a team to success, helping them realise their own full potential, as a leader, there is nothing more rewarding.
My personal “Why” is to “Inspire Positive Influence to enable Happiness”. Whether this be one on one with a client, presenting to a group of leaders at a retreat or conference, parenting with my partner, raising our two children or simply chatting with a girlfriend, I believe that positive influence is the key to ensuring happiness and success for all.
The ‘just cause’ or purpose in my business, is to ensure that “No business owner or staff member is left standing aimlessly, not knowing what to do next! Everyone feels safe in their work environment, confident to make a contribution, boosting their self esteem and overall happiness”.
I’m super passionate about ensuring small businesses gain the same knowledge that benefits large corporations; understanding the key to emerge from struggling to growth and scalability. This is why I have partnered with The Better Business For Good Company as a BB4G Mentor. This joint venture provides my clients with a clear and simple plan utilising the “Business Improvement Programme”. A dashboard technology established by replicating all elements of successful businesses one checklist at a time. This produces so much value to clients because along with the support and guidance required to enable small business owners to navigate their way through difficult times it also enables them emerge with a clearly defined plan and next step system, giving them greater sense of clarity and potential for success.
I am also currently studying my MBA, Masters of Business Administration, to fill the gaps, to ensure I’m offering a whole and complete service to my valuable clients.

Frequently Asked Questions
Got a specific question, you might find the answer here;
How long does a session go for?
We will work till we achieve the outcome, usually a session is complete within an hour.
How long have you been a coach for?
I studied coaching back in 2005 and have been coaching in one way or another ever since then.
What makes you qualified to be a business coach?
Having started my career in the travel industry in 1997, it was a great base to learn the basics of business. The first business I ran we improved by over 300% in 12 months. I studied my Diploma in Life Coaching and was then asked to run the operations of the ‘Coaching School’ in which we doubled the turnover, year on year through the GFC. I then helped 19 Store managers run their business helping them to become more profitable. Since having my first child, I’ve coached many businesses, in launching or relaunching their business by improving their business operations, business leadership and management and efficiency to achieve the greater results they desire. I am now currently studying my MBA with Ducere – Torrens University.
Can I speak with one of your past clients?
Sure, let me know and I’ll contact one of them to see if they are happy to have a conversation with you
What makes you a good coach?
Well, my clients say, that I’m insightful, knowledgable and able to switch between human coaching (mindset) and business coaching (strategy and best business practices) as required to attain the desired result. In fact, it was one of my clients who came up with the statement “Offering clarity in the overwhelming confusion”.
How much do you charge?
It’s a case of looking at your desired result and then assessing how to best achieve it. My programs start from $347 per month, depending on how much input you’re looking for from me.
What’s important to you in a client?
My values are Fun, Connection, Responsibility, Quality, Growth and Achievement. So the more you resonate with these specific values, the more success we’ll have. If, when speaking, I don’t feel we’re a match, I will tell you and refer you on to a colleague that’s more suitable
What is your business purpose?
I’m an avid Simon Sinek fan and much of my work is inspired by him. My “Just Cause” is to work until “No business owner or staff member is left standing aimlessly, not knowing what to do next! Everyone feels safe in their work environment able to make a contribution, boosting their self esteem and overall happiness”
What is your personal purpose?
Whether I’m talking to a client, to my sister, girlfriends, partner or children, my purpose is always the same, “To inspire positive influence to enable happiness”
Tell me about you?
Well, I could go on forever, however here’s a brief overview. I grew up in the Yarra Valley, East of Melbourne. My parents still live there and that’s where we’re riding out the ‘Covid’ storm. I spent a large portion of my career in the travel industry and hence spent a significant amount of time in Bali. I have a lovely partner and two gorgeous children. I’m a mad “Maria Montessori” fan and love that my children are experiencing such a richly cultured education at the Montessori School in Bali. My passion for Bali and the Balinese people runs deep. It’s not the ’typical bogan Bali’ that it’s reputation lends itself to, rather a deeply spiritual place where I find a great sense of peace and comfort. It’s for that reason, my family and I moved there, 14 months before we had to return due to the pandemic in March 2020. We were coming home, only for a holiday to see friends and family. It has turned into an extended stay and we’ll return when it’s safely possible. In the meantime, we’re lucky enough to call the Yarra Valley home. Now, I’d like to learn about you…. tell me more about you?
