Nancy Lysandrou

MBA and Certified Professional Coach

Hello. For 25 years, I worked in learning and development at large global corporations, leading teams and managing projects. My passion to develop individuals and groups in both technical and personal skills contributed to a successful career. And yet, I was always looking for more. I wanted to make a deeper difference in people’s lives.

I have been where you are. I was “downsized” three times, promoted within companies, and resigned to take the next step in my career at a new company. I’ve had dead end jobs; I’ve faced boredom and my skills under utilized. I’ve also had amazing opportunities, learning, growing and knowing my contributions were valued. I had fantastic managers who guided me and occasionally, a manager who, let’s just say we didn’t share the same view of situations. It wasn’t always easy, but I brought high energy and excitement to each new opportunity. At every place, I appreciated mutual support with my co-workers.

I am grateful to every woman who opened her heart to me, allowing me to mentor, coach, counsel, develop, and manage over the years. I hope you learned as much as I did. These experiences gave me the confidence to take on my biggest career change — stepping away from a corporate career.

Today, I live in historic Saint Augustine, Florida, a New Jersey transplant, living with my partner, Rob and our rescue dog, Bruce, a Corgi mix. I am the proud mother of Rosemary, a beautiful loving daughter, who kept me moving forward, trying and doing more. In recent years, I am also caring for aging parents. I am a member of the “sandwich” generation. Both are labors of love and continue to teach me about the stages in life.

As a career coach, I help my clients clarify and achieve their professional and personal goals including greater career satisfaction, enhanced work-life balance, improved leadership capabilities and meaningful personal growth. My goal is to make a difference one woman at a time. I am your Solutions Coach. Let’s find your solution.

Problems are in your mind. Solutions are in your heart.
-- Yulia King

Nancy is so supportive and easy to talk to, she gets you to open up about yourself and what you want to accomplish - even if you didn’t realize it yourself. And then she helps you find your own direction and solutions that you can achieve. You just leave with such a feeling of confidence and empowerment - it really makes a huge positive impact on your day-to-day life.

Nancy is awesome and easily helped me to see I had the answers for my conflicts right in front of me, supporting me to execute the changes I wanted and to comfortably realize other areas I wanted to change or improve in my life. I strongly value Nancy’s cooperation and have the highest confidence in her ability to help others to develop.
