My background

My name is Lisa Branic, the founder of b-ALIGNED.  I started my career as an Industrial Engineer, which I suppose is what drives my pragmatic, no process for process sake approach.  I soon moved into Consulting and Systems Integration where I played all roles in software development:  developer, tester, quality assurance manager, business analyst, technical designer, project manager, and program manager  I felt it was important to learn all the roles before I moved into project management.  I then built project management, portfolio management, and organizational change management capabilities for organizations, by building and evolving global Project Management Office's (PMO's) even when previous attempts failed.

How I came to Coaching?

When I was leading project management offices for companies and organizations,  I wanted to be a better coach and mentor to my staff so I went to coaching school.  I did not have a desire to make a career out of it - until I tried it, then I was hooked!  I love listening deeply, being curious and getting to hear the aha's of clients putting the pieces together. I love coming to coaching sessions with the only agenda being to move the clients agenda forward, including figuring out what forward means for them, and finding what is getting in the way to make that happen.

What’s in the name b-ALIGNED?

People often ask me, "what do  Project Management Offices, Coaching and Rolfing® have in common?"   Throughout this journey and after working with my own coach,  I have come to realize that “alignment” is my life’s purpose.  For organizations what is their vision and mission, how are they going to get there (strategy), and what projects, programs and operational initiatives will realize that strategy.  For projects its the same, what is the goal of the project and aligning the resources and tasks in order to achieve it.  For individuals, where do you want to go, who do you have to be and what do you have to do in order to get there.  Lastly, I will work to physically align you with Rolfing®. 


The bottom line is that I have a pragmatic approach and am interested in providing you services, tools, and knowledge to help you live your best life.
