Lisa Tierney, CLSC

Lisa began her career over twenty five years ago as a Marketing Director at a regional, then national CPA firm, excelling at her ability to create an impetus for change around marketing and business development efforts. Over time, Lisa learned how to craft effective programs and successful initiatives that transformed the way the firm’s professionals perceived themselves and their approach to serving clients. As part of that process, Lisa began to understand the obstacles that stood in the way of their success and resolved to share her winning formula with the accounting profession. She became a certified life strategies coach in 2009 and launched TIERNEY Coaching & Consulting, Inc. TIERNEY C&C has enjoyed much success by providing high-level individual coaching to shareholders and up-and-coming leaders at CPA firms across the country. Lisa says, “Coaching is THE most effective change agent for firms who want to define and control the way they will grow and thrive in today’s ever-changing environment.”

Individual coaching sessions are conducted via telephone as we have discovered that, since your journey is a powerful one and requires deep introspection, it’s more effective when we remain just a little voice in your ear.  Of course, we will come to your location to host a training, facilitate a retreat and would love to meet your entire team – and take you to dinner once in awhile!
