About Us

Lisa Holden Rovers
Lisa Holden Rovers, MSc, CPHR, PCC

When it comes to building a cohesive team, one that works together to achieve common goals, a one-time team building event is not long lasting. This is typically what most organizations do. Workplace Matters will partner with you to create a sustainable solution that improves workplace relationships and builds cohesive teams who become more successful together.

In addition to offering the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team team experience, we also provide team coaching services to resolve conflict within a team, facilitation services to support strategic retreats, and employee surveys to pinpoint what works and what doesn't to keep your teams engaged and productive.

Want to build a sustainable team effectiveness strategy that addresses your team challenges? Contact us to schedule a complimentary Team Success Discovery Session.
