Rethinking Networking

with Dianne Rizzo and Lisa Baker

We've all heard the phrase "it's not what you know, it's who you know."

While you can't ignore skills and experience, the importance of networking is unequivocal.  For many though, it can be one of the most challenging parts of being a professional.  The October program is all about shifting your mindset regarding networking, growing your networking skills and expanding your circle of influence.

Join Dianne Rizzo of ONE LIFE Coaching Services and Lisa Baker of Lisa B Simplified Coaching for an informative and interactive session to help create an action plan for intentionally building a stronger personal, professional or organizational network.  Dianne and Lisa will not only reinforce the basics of building a relationship, but they will get specific about the importance of diversifying connections to reap the benefits of new ideas and innovations.

 Dianne Rizzo is a Resilience and Leadership Coach who works with executives and leaders to maximize their potential, enhance their emotional intelligence and manage their stress and energy so they can thrive, not just survive. Dianne has always been a coach at heart and believes life is far too short to be lived on “autopilot.”  Before establishing her coaching practice, she enjoyed a 25-year career in the healthcare industry. During her work as a hospice nurse and clinical leader, she began to study resilience, positive psychology and mindfulness before she formalized her calling as a coach. Dianne holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Vermont and certifications in Individual/ Organizational Resilience and Life Coaching from the Institute for Life Coach Training and is an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). She can be reached at and via LinkedIn. 

Lisa Baker works with professionals who refuse to be average. She empowers transformation leading to bold choices and big wins in career and  life. Mindful of her client’s high-stakes environments, her approach is grounded in human connection and thought partnerships helping individuals forge a deeper understanding of how they are built, love who they are and be authentic in all areas of their life.  Lisa loves to know people. An intuitive connector and relationship builder, she’s been growing and developing teams and re-energizing the workplace throughout her career. Her mission is to bring peace of mind to people everywhere, catalyzing them to move past their limiting beliefs and live bold, fully expressed lives. She holds a vision of a workplace where individuals are fully-engaged and thrive.   Combining more than 20 years of success in corporate IT, leadership work with PresenceAtWork, coach training with The Coaches Training Institute, yoga teacher training at White Lotus Foundation, mindfulness, meditation and Emotional Freedom Technique, she works with individuals to help them gain clarity on their mission, purpose and vision, specifying goals, creating actionable plans and taking the steps necessary to succeed.  Lisa is an Associate Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation. She can be reached at and on LinkedIn.
