Chief Transformation Officer
Lisa Whited believes that “the way things have always been done” is not a barrier to “how we want things to be.” She shakes up the status quo and has a gift for seeing things from a different angle. As one friend said about her, “All you need to know about Lisa is that her company name is wtf.”
Lisa’s natural ability to put people at ease, coupled with her background in design thinking, change management, interior architecture, and leadership and community building add up to an individual who is making a difference in the world.
Lisa Whited is a Workplace Transformation Consultant whose work is borne out of the desire to move the needle on the shocking statistic that only 13% of employees worldwide are happy at work. From her first job at age 15 scooping ice cream at Baskin Robbins, Lisa knew she wanted to help people be happier at work. She gravitated toward the happiest job in the world, as people who buy ice cream are always happy!
Years of experience, research and candid conversations with employees in their work environments led Lisa to create a consortium of 12 collaborators who are experts in their fields: organizational ecology, evidence-based-design research, leadership coaching, brand and environmental design, social media strategy, strategic planning, interior architecture and project management. This consortium provides a 360 degree perspective that allows wtf to tackle workplace transformation head on.
Lisa and her wtf partners leverage the connection between leadership, employee engagement and physical workplace design. wtf has developed a three-step process that results in more engaged employees and transformational cultures. wtf's clients often show up on the Best Places To Work lists and are led by CEO’s who don’t want to settle for “good enough.”
